I love teacups and teapots. There seems to be no end to the gorgeous patterns and shapes made by various china manufacturers. Over the years I have collected a few that I think are really pretty.
This is my very favorite teacup. It's a chintz pattern from Shelley called "Primrose". See all the little forget me nots in the background?I have lots of other variations on forget me nots. These three are all from Royal Albert. l-r: "Forget Me Not", "Memory Lane" , and "?". (The Memory Lane in front is my china pattern.)
Here are some pink rose teacups, also from Royal Albert. ( l-r: "?", "American Beauty", "Wild Rose", and "Lavender Rose".)
The three pictured here are all made by Paragon and I do not know the names of any of them. (If you do please leave me a message.)
These are the three teapots I use most often. There is just something so endearing about the round belly of a teapot and the curve of the spout. l-r: Denby "Greystone", Queen's "Blue Calico", and a traditional "Brown Betty".
Lord Nelson "Heather" chintz cream and sugar. These were originally a gift to my mother from a dear friend in Canada. I have had my eye on them for years and last summer she told me I could take them home with me. I am a lucky girl!
