This week, I'm sharing two special teacups that a friend gave me a few months ago. She owned these teacups for years, but had never used them. She knew that I would enjoy these teacups so she passed them on to me!
I was beyond delighted to give these beauties a new home! The simple, but elegant look is so versatile.

This teacup would be perfect for celebrating Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee next month!
