This discussion is open for everyone to add your favorite tea cup photo every Tuesday. It can be from your own collection or store...or it can be a favorite photo off Pinterest or the internet. Just show off the best and favoritest! (New word :))

I bet there are matching pink rose bushes somewhere, Elaine! :) That is a beautiful cup and saucer for $1!!
What a beautiful cup, love roses. My food store sells mini rose bushes - pair it with a pink one.
What beautiful yellow roses and footed tea cup.

It's hard to get only one in a picture when you have 63 sets (I think I've lost count!) of vintage and antique tea cups in your living room alone! Yes, I am obsessed.

While I'm sure most were created to be used, some are meant to only be admired visually, I'm afraid. I'm not brave enough to experiment to discover which are which, though :) Here's one more I have posted on my page and somewhere else, most likely, so I apologize for being repetitious. Bought this at a consignment shop for $20 after it went 50% off:
