Tea Cup Tuesday

I will begin by showing you this gorgeous rose that my granddaughter, Kelly, send me this morning via my email. First thing I saw was this precious pink rose. She told me she was walking her little dog when she saw it and thought of me. Sweet, sweet girl. Ok to the business at hand. I have entered Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday and will show you some of the tea cups and tea pot that I have done myself.

This one is one of my favorites, I did quite a bit of decorating on it, as you will see in the last pictures.
Tonight I had tea alone because my husband was not feeling well and went to bed.


This tea pot I decorated to match one of the tea cups. I apply the decals and fire them in my kiln, haven't done too much lately but plan on doing more soon.

Here are two of my tea cups, one matches the tea pot. I so enjoy doing this work.

Tea pot and cup.

You can see how much detail I added to this tea cup.


Here is a view of the saucer. Actually it's even prettier in person.
Lovingly Lu

  7. Hello, Dear friend.
    How THOUGHTFUL and SWEET your granddaughter is!!! It sure is a blessing to have such a wonderful girl as grandchild♪♪♪
    I is so ashamed to say that I couldn't get the meaning of what you said from "apply the decals and fire them in my kiln", so I was hesitating to leave a comment.
    Well, I could check the word "decal",haha. I trully love the pink roses with all these tea-cups, spoon and all!!! Great tea-pot♬
    Thanks for the LOVELY ROSES,

    Lots of Love and Hugs xoxo, Orchid.

  16. How lovely that your Grand-Daughter knows what images will most inspire you and touch your Heart... the Rose is beautiful.

    Your collection of Rose China is impressive too... I've always loved Roses and Peonies, so almost anything with their images draws me in.

  18. You did a beautiful job on the tea cups. I love 'tea time'. I have been taking time out each day for a cup of tea. It can be very soothing after a hectic day. The photo of the pink rose was exquisite. Have a lovely weekend.
