Limoges Tea Cup

Teacups bring me such joy.

I know I am not alone in this thinking.

I always knew there were many others.....

.......Those who love hand painted china from wonderful
places as Bavaria, Austria, Japan, France or England.

My favorite pieces that I have kept are quite old.

(This one isn't so much, but it is a cutie nonetheless.)

Thanks for stopping by!
I do so appreciate your visits!

  1. Hello Michele
    I was impressed while away to find we would be served with cups and saucers every day for meals - it was so elegant.
    The simple pattern and colours of your teacup are pretty.

  2. Hi Michele,

    Limoges always brings a smile to my face! Your teacup is stunning! Perfect for a summer day.

  3. Beautiful teacup and saucer, Michele! I am always surprised at some of the really pretty ones I see at Goodwill.

  4. Very pretty. I like how unique the pattern is with it's sweet green ban. So dainty and so French.

  5. Hi Michele,
    What a sweet teacup! Limoges always makes a lovely teacup. I love the pink and green combo; very dainty! Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea. Hope you have a lovely week.


  6. Beautiful teacup, Michele, and that green plant pot is just gorgeous!

  7. I agree, a very pretty teacup. Love that little doily too!

  8. It's a dainty little thing with the pink flower vine winding around that way. I'm still loving the green...

  9. Somehow tea always tastes better in these old, dainty cups & saucers. My grandmother left me her set and I love every one of them.
    Beautiful pictures, lovely cup & saucer!
    Debbie :)

  10. Love the color and design on it.

  11. it is cutie, michele! love that planter, too!

  12. Michele, That is a stunning teacup! It is just beautiful. I think of you and your love of finches when I look out and see the goldfinches enjoying my coneflowers - that is a frequent occurence these days. They sure are gorgeous! Love the goldfinches; we do have many house finches as well and in fact a mother and father house finch raised 3 broods of babies in a nest on a light fixture on the front porch.
    Blessings to you, Beth

  16. A very elegant set, beautifully coloured, I love the colour. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Hello Michelle,
    I too, take much delight in tea cups! Yours is a sweetie! She looks very light and thin. These cups make a truly pleasant experience with tea. I have one similar from France only a little different pattern. I too love hand painted china. Your collage photos are fab, I need to learn how to do that!

  18. I love Limoges too, mainly because it's just so pretty and delicate!

  19. I love the delicate simplicity of limoge... Teatime is always a pleasure in one of these beautiful cups. They just seem to fit so snuggly into the palm of your hand, warming the heart with their dainty patterns... Lovely post...hugs
