This is my wish tea cup. It is pretty tiny....about three inches across for the cup and about four and a half inches for the saucer. I must admit, I have an obsession. I want tea cups. I crave tea cups. Every Tuesday, I gaze longingly at the beautiful tea cups that people on Tea Cup Tuesday. They are so lovely! They are big and had unusual shapes and often have real gold trim.
This is my starter tea cup. It lives on my bedside table and I see it every morning. It has a surprise in the bottom of the cup. A very sweet flower!!!
What I like best about my wish cup is the colors. It has wonderful pink and cranberry roses and the flourishes around the roses are turquoise, and a bright turquoise at that. It even has a little gold around the inside rim!
When I turn it over to show its pedigree (like you all do)...well, not much of a pedigree. It is Hong Kong, not Royal This or Royal That. Above the emblem are some scratchy black letters that say, "NOT FOR FOOD USE." Oh dear, I guess I can't show you a picture of me drinking Aveda tea (soft and soothing).
Still, I love it. And I have a funny feeling...this is only the beginning!
