Teacup-a-Story




This week. . .

. . .you are invited to join in the Gracious Hospital-i-Tea Blog-a-Thon. Scroll down for more information. My regular weekly posts are below this message.

The topic for this week is:


March 16 - March 22
Teacup-a-Story

Share a picture of your favorite teacup and saucer; describe it and tell it's history (or make up a story about it's past). Why is it meaningful to you? This would be a good place to share about the details of your teacup collection if you have one.

  1. I found your blog at Alice's blog, and I think yours is just as lovely as hers, so I'll be back to visit regularly. I'd love to participate in your Blog a Thon, but am not sure how to post my teacup story. Should I be doing it here?

  46. What a lovely blog you have. So many beautiful flowers and bone china tea cups.
    You inspire me to get out the ones I have packed away and paint them.

    ReplyDelete
  47. La tea dah,
    I'm not the same Mary Winn, but I'm pleased to meet you.
    Do you do the stitchery and the photos and the arrangements I see on your blog?
    You have an artistic spirit and probably could translate that to painting.
    I'll come by again.

  57. What a lovely idea! I'm afraid I feel rather "rustic" in comparison, but I love to look at everyone else's dainty china. Here's my post about my sturdy cup and saucer: http://chanknits.wordpress.com/2008/03/21/teacup-a-story/

    Have a tea-rific day!
