Teacup Challenge with Kris & Liz

Hey did someone mention "Teacups"?? Kris form tagalong teddies and Liz from teddlywinks have laid down a challenge to dust off our teacups and put them on show for all to see.....so for those who don't know me I love all things "Teacups, Teapots or Teaparty" so here are my offerings. I have grouped them as I was terrified it would be all to much for blogger. I hope you can see them ok.
Also a huge big hug and thanks to Kris for solving a little techno issue for me. I am very excited Kris so thank you. I have loved visiting everyone and drooling (I know ugly) over all your gorgeous teacups.
front teacup my "Nanna's" favourite, left one a gift from friend Lorel, right one I love because it's so pretty
My Mum bought the front one back from Derby in England for me and the one at the back on right is "Ridgway" china and belonged to my Nanna..had to have that one.
these 3 have beautiful names e.g 'enchanting' 'true love' & 'love story' and are 'Royal Stafford'

my Grandad's favourite on left. "Clarice Cliff" no less and part of my Cranberry/white teaset on the right

I have 6 teacups in this set and this design is my all time favourite. If I win lotto I'm onto the antique dealer for a whole dinner set.
A favourite each trio has a different rose with it's name underneath the cup. It belonged to my husband Grandad and was very special to him and is now very special to me.
21st birthday teaset from my parents

  2. Hey Michelle! Thanks for joining in the fun of Liz and my "Show Us Your Teacups" challenge!! :0) And how GORGEOUS are your teacups!!! You're not the only one drooling! :0) What I love most is that so many of your fabulous teacups have stories to go with them ... what super special family keepsakes to have and enjoy! Hmmm ... but now I think I need to go and put the kettle on again! Tee! Hee! Hee! No worries about the techno help - I'm spoilt cos my 'Tech Support' sits beside me on the couch! :0) Big Squooshy Bear Hugs! KRIS
