New Kid on the Blog

My love of tea started in my early 20s. Back in the olden days of LiveJournal, I had thought of starting a blog about the different tearooms that I visited but alas, this never came into fruition. "I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!" to all the fun online tea parties. So in 2015, I'm finally jumping down the rabbit hole of tea blogland!

For my inaugural Tea Time/Tea Cup Tuesday post, I'm sharing one of the first bone china teacups that I acquired in my collection.
 

This vintage teacup was kindly gifted to me by an elderly woman I met through work who thought that I would appreciate the lovely bone china cup and saucer--and she was right!


What an excellent start to my teacup collection!

Edited to fix photos.

I'm joining the following parties:
Tea Time Tuesday
Tea Cup Tuesday
Friends Sharing Tea
Tuesday Cuppa Tea

  5. Paragon pieces are special as that is the only company that is allowed to bare the Queen's stamp of approval and choice. Your teacup is lovely and I am so glad you shared at Friends Sharing Tea.
