Quaint Little Cottage Teacup

The minute I saw this little tea set in a local charity shop I just knew I had to have it!
I don't know much about teacups, but I really liked this.

I love the picture of the quaint little thatched cottage and the pretty little cottage garden.

I can just imagine a little crinoline lady doing a spot of gardening.

Love the scalloped edged saucer and plate.

Made by Royal Vale, England.


Love, Liz

Hi Liz, thanks for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I love your cottage tea cup, you were lucky to find it in your local charity shop, it seems to be getting harder to find anything nice in our local charity shops.It's great to have another follower from Scotland, my sister lives near Stirling and I visit whenever I can. She has been thinking about organising a vintage fair like the ones I organise down here but we weren't sure if there would be as much interest. It would be great to know what you think.

Thanks for all your lovely comments. Amazing what you can find in charity shops! the crinoline lady tablecloth was also found there.

Liz your teacup is simply beautiful and I completely agree - charity shops are such Aladdin's caves of treasures! :-) You've gained a follower in me!
