Dawn Chorus



Isn't this a sweet teacup?
I found it at Ross.



Dawn Chorus Teacup


 The delicate birds, butterflies and flowers in vivid pink and blue on the cup and saucer.

Then I turned the cup over and discovered this on the bottom:
Dawn Chorus
Portmeirion

Perfect name for this teacup from one of my favorite companies.

Cassie really does like tea day.
She's such a big help,
 supervising every move I make!



Dawn Chorus Teacup and Cassie



Wishing YOU WELL and much JOY!

Sweet cup! Love the shape and the soft design.

I am so excited... I have been on the search for a special set of cups and saucers for using with my grandchildren. Having tea (with sugar cubes) has become a bit of a routine when they are here especially the ones from NY. I have seen some lovely ones that were way out of my price range but I won a bid on a set of 10 birthday china cups and saucers on ebay. (Feb and June are missing). It was a steal and I can't wait for them to arrive!

That tea-cup is exquisite. Really, I don't think I have seen one so beautiful. Of course, your cat is the picture of beauty this morning. My little Audrey helped me out on Tea-cup Tuesday also. Seems they have a real interest in china. :-)

That is such a pretty tea cup. I don't have a tea cup like that but I definitely have a "dawn chorus" every morning with all the birds singing. I love hearing them.

PS - I have that book on my to-read list.

I like the bright cup of white and pink contrasting sweet against the bright blue. A perfect cup for the brighter seasons. The little butterfly on the saucer is the finishing touch in. I wish you a very nice week! Zinnia

That is such a sweet cup! I love sets with birds, and that is blue to boot! We have a small Ross that doesn't stock much. So glad you had Cassie supervising. Tinker is my office manager and keeps me on my toes! Thanks for sharing and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Ruth Kelly said...

Unique cups. Like your helper. I have two of them who leave me bits of fur here and there.

Johanna said...

Hi Snap,
thats a beautiful find and matches perfect with the bird runner. Is Cassie interested in the birds decoration, the tea or the cream for the tea? Anyway, she is a beauty with her blue eyes.
Best greetings, Johanna

What a darling teacup you found! I do like shopping at Ross. There are none around here, but on our way south for the winters I find quite a few. Such a sweet kitty, I miss mine. Thanks for sharing,

I love this cup. For some reason it reminds me of an Asian cup I had years ago. Such delicate painting. Your cat is so beautiful. I miss my sweet Siamese.

It's a lovely teacup and the backdrop is quite charming too, especially "blue eyes". That looks like an interesting book.
