I Love Owls


I love owls.
I've been collecting them since I was a very small girl.
I guess I've always loved the wise old owl often seen by Merlin's side.
Magical!




Lacey Owls Teacup



So, it is no surprise that Lacey Owl has been added to the owl and teacup collection.
This is a huge teacup.



Lacey Owls Teacup

So far in the cup I've had:
tea
hot chocolate
cereal
oat meal
tomato soup with half a grilled cheese sandwich on the plate
and I'm sure I'll find more drink/food to fit! 

I have a new favorite tea:
This is a white and green whole leaf tea blend in a sachet.

Thank you to our tea party hosts:

That is the prettiest owl I have ever seen! What a beautiful tea cup...the perfect size if you can also enjoy a serving of tomato soup. (Did you get the tins from Joann's this year with the beautiful owls on them? You might find one for 70% off now. I do love a tin for keeping things fresh.)

Good morning! I love your lacey owl tea cup. I personally love a big cup and this one looks perfect. The orange jasmine tea sounds wonderful.

Now, that is a beaut. Don't you feel that some pieces of china just belong to us; they were meant to be ours. I see that here. Hugs, Deb

And of course the Owl is sacred to the Goddess Athena too!

I absolutely love your teacup! The design is marvelous! There are a lot of owl collectors. They represent so many good traits, don't they? I'd collect your owl pattern for sure! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

I do like owls and I've never collected until this year so now I have a few owls in my jewelry collection.

I like Owls, not love, but I do love your new cup. Your new tea sounds delicious, and refreshing.

Well that is just so cute. What a wonderful teacup set. And I really like the size of it.

Lacey Owl is a beautiful cup! It has already been well broken in with all the treats you have had in it! That is what I call a versatile tea cup!
I do love the bigger cups too.
Your new tea sounds delicious!

Really different cup and saucer, I like it so much. We have a mating pair of bard owls here and a small Eastern Screech in the yard from time to time. They are quite amazing creatures aren't they. xox

Janet said...

This might just be my favorite of all the cups you've shared with us. I love the lacy design...it's beautiful!

Betsy Adams said...

Snap- that is just TOO CUTE!

You could even put a pretty little plant or some coloured eggs in it for spring when it comes, nice having it that large.

The colour is sweet, too!

You got me with the title of this post....as you know we are big owl fans in this house and are amassing quite a collection. Tomato soup with half a grilled cheese sandwich - I think that will be my supper!

Barb said...

The doily is pretty, too. You have so many cups, Snap - how do you choose each day which to use? Do you have a stand-by favorite? Tell us!

New Years Greeting ...

Lacey Owl is adorable...Funnily enough I've had an owl fetish lately and then my son mentioned that he was painting little owls on his new babies room ...I wonder if this isn't " The Year of the Owl" ..( HA HA)
Lacey is most delightful and of course who could resist this adorable teaset...I love the colour too.... It a joy to be back into teatime !!!..Hugs

Steph said...

Love, love, love the owls teacup!

EG CameraGirl said...

Very cool!

Lorraine said...

This is the sweetest tea cup! Love the pattern and the colors as well as the shape! Nice square-ish saucer.

I recently bought a pair of tea cups from an Oneida outlet while visiting our daughter in Up-state NY. It is a large, shallow cup and though I love the shape, especially for soup, I noticed foods/beverages cool rather quickly.

What a pretty blue owl cup! My sisters loves Owls, too. Where did you find this?

Ruthie Miller said...
