WELCOME TO TEA CUP TUESDAY

Tea Cup Tuesday is upon us again....today I am featuring two tea cup & saucers. The 1st is a lovely set with bright spring colours. The marking is NC Japan and I don't know it's age.



My 2nd Tea Cup is a piece from my favorite china set..so dainty! I love using it for dinner parties and have placesettings for twelve.
The maker is Mikasa fine china..pattern Venice 9266 Japan

I purchased this set of china at an Antique auction in one of the small towns we lived in early in our marriage. My husband's career in Finance Banking had us transfered around our Province many times and while the moving company was busy packing up our home I attended the auction. They were not very pleased with me when I showed up with another set of china for them to hand wrap and package for the journey to our new home. What can a Girl do...I had to have it!!
Have a great rest of the week.. Thank you Martha & Terri for hosting this wonderful event..
Blessings...
Wanda
