When I found this tea cup at a garage sale, I knew that I had to have it, as it matched my other Forget-Me-Not tea cups so well. I took this picture as I was washing and then arranging my china in my new china cabinet (see my last post). Such a fun day!

After a l-o-n-g wait, my china cabinet finally arrived!
I ordered it on Boxing Day, and it came this week! While I had some of my china out, I was excited to open the boxes of china that had been in storage.
It was fun to spread out my tea time treasures on the counter and figure out how to arrange everything in the cabinet!

Here is a small tea cup in the Brigadoon pattern by Royal Albert.
Royal Albert produced this pattern between 1963-2001.
Yes, this was another one of my great deals I found at a garage sale! I can't wait for garage sale season to start again!

You can see my Amaryllis in the background in this photo. It waited until Valentine's Day to finally open it's first flower (there will be 6 in total!). That was a long wait, considering I was expecting it more around Christmas ... but it was worth it! Isn't it pretty?

Hope you had a happy Valentine's Day!
Thank you for popping by my blog this week. I am joining the tea party over at Martha's Favorites and Artful Affirmations where many bloggers share pictures of their precious tea cups each week.
Since it was Valentine's day yestrday, I wanted to share a tea cup with a rose on it. I've set it out on one of the many dollies that my Grandma crocheted.
This is yet another Royal Albert tea cup ... I seem to have quite a number in my collection!

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Here is another tea cup from my collection. It is made by Royal London.
It features blue flowers with hints of yellows and reds.
I think it's handle is in quite a unique shape!
Here is it's back stamp:
