All of your teacups are very pretty but the one with the angel handle is unique - what an experience it must be to sip tea from it.

Isn't it amazing, Vicki, how beautiful china was "back in the day?!"

The roses on your teacups are stunning!

I wish you a wonderful new week, with many blessings always,

Vicki, such darling teacups/saucers...and yes, I can see they'd be saucy little things, as they are very beautiful. Though I love them all, I think my favorite is the 4th one down with the pretty pale blue border and the roses and vines streaming. And of course, the lovely pink cup...such a pretty shape, and I've never seen a handle quite like it - a sweet little angel watching over teatime.

Thank you for visiting, and your dear comment. I, too, treasure your visits and sweet hellos.

May you be in perfect health and well-being. Sending love and happiness your way,

Marianne xo
