Teacups from my Grandmother

I love these teacups from my Grandmother.  We use them on special occassions and sometimes just because.  She was a wonderful kind lady and although we couldn't communicate well because of the language barrier I always knew I had a special place in her heart.

    The teacups from your grandmother are gorgeous! The set that is the second from the last is my favorite.

  10. Hi Alana,
    Thank you for the stylish blog award. I am honoured that you thought of me. Your tea cups are pretty. I especially like the rose teacup with the ornate trim. I have a similar collection of teacups that I inherited from my Mum that mean a great deal to me. Have a great Sunday.

  11. Thank you for sharing a beautiful gift of the heart ♥♥♥
    I too enjoyed a special relationship with my Grandma; we shared the joy of storytelling.
    I look forward to reading more of your blog.
    Kindest regards, Tara

  12. Thank you for sharing this sweet post with "Share Your Cup Thursday". What an ideal thing to share. Having something from your grandmother is such a special gift. All of my grandparents had passed before I was born. Although I had wonderful Aunts and Uncles that took their place.


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
