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 :))

Today, I pinned this one off Pinterest by Mary Wald. Beautiful! Matches my yellow rose hedge.

What a gorgeous cup and rose bush!  The flowers really do match :)  Speaking of roses, here's a cup and saucer with pink roses I found at a yard sale....both were covered with dirt and in separate boxes.  I think I paid a dollar for the set!  I wish I had matching bushes, but I don't.  Enjoy!

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. 

Thanks Eleene, Donna and Mary!  Mary, yes!  There are other tea cups you see!  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.  But there are worse obsessions in the world! (I keep trying to convince my husband of that) :)  Here are some more, all located on the same ladies' writing desk as the first:

Here's another:

Another, I was told Moser - yard sale for $20 and the sterling spoon, same yard sale, $20, which is more than I usually spend on sterling demitasse, but it's a heavy spoon:

And one more for now, Rosenthal "Donatello" pattern.  All my tea cups are graced with a sterling spoon.  I do have a couple of cups I still need spoons for.  Maybe I'll find the perfect spoons soon!  I hope :):  

Haha, Mary!  Sounds like a plan :)  Here's one more cup to enjoy!  One of my absolute favorites.  T&V Limoges bought at a consignment shop:

Mary, it's even more lovely in person!  I found a mate to it - same pattern, but different style, demitasse - on eBay.  Might have to get it :)

Elaine, Love your tea cups and your silver spoons. Thanks for posting your beautiful collection. Do you use them?

Hi Donna,

No, definitely not!  I'd never forgive myself if I'd pour boiling water into one only to have it shatter!  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:
