Bridal Rose Tea Cup

This has been an absolutely beautiful day of sunshine, soft fluffy clouds and fantastic early Fall breezes. I did wake to a house that was slightly cooler than I prefer, so when Hubby left for work I turned the furnace on for the first time and let it run for about an hour just to knock the chill out of the air.

 Naughty Me!
But as the day went on it was just gorgeous and I had to open the windows to let the warm breezes blow in and warm the house that way. Such funny weather this time of year!
Well ~ it was such a lovely day that my Mother and I decided to take a stroll around the local thrift shop during the afternoon. And I am so happy that we did :)
This is the treasure I returned home with from today's hunt.
A Fine Bone China English Tea Cup and Saucer.
The pattern is
~Bridal Rose~
I have never seen it before.
I am totally in love with it!
And so very glad I ventured out.
It is in perfect condition.
I paid a mere $6.99 for this delightful piece.
As you can see in the first picture, I settled right in and had a nice cup of tea when I got home.
So very charming.
Don't you agree?
I felt just like
"Her Majesty"
from the first
the last
I think she's happy in her new home. 


  1. We had the windows open today too! It was so nice to "air" out the house! Hope you have a great day tomorrow!

    1. Yes ~ today is supposed to be even nicer. Then the rest of the week it will get increasingly cooler. So at least one more day of airing out the house. You have a wonderful day, Sweet Sarah!

  2. Oh, that is neat. I love that there is a pattern name on the bottom. Looks like you came away with quite a treasure.

    1. Hello My Dear Little Audrey Bear!
      So good to hear from you!
      Love all your lovely knits lately.
      Those are the real treasures :)

  3. Absolutely charming! I love the gold ring inside the cup, and the stamp on the bottom of the cup is priceless. Have a great day!

    1. Hi MS. Magnolia Tea~
      I love that gold ring too. It's a selling point for me always :) And I always look for the stamp on the bottom. I really like the bit about "Her Majesty".
      Have a great day in your Smoky Mts.!

  4. What a lovey teacup and I love the price. Who don't love a bargain. We haven't had cool enough weather to turn the heat on yet. But we have turned the A/C off on the cooler days. We had the windows open at night a few times. How nice that you can go shopping with your Mom. I miss doing that - my Mom has been gone 21 years now.


Thank you for taking time to chat with me ~
Your comments make me so Happy!
Have a lovely day.
