My Valentine Teacup and a Tea Party!

Hi everyone!

As most of you know by now, I collect teacups. I have been collecting them since I received my first teacup from my Great Grandmother at age 13.

Troy always keeps his eye out for pretty teacups to buy for me for different occasions. Well, he surprised me with this little beauty on Valentines Day. It was filled and surrounded by chocolate. Can it get any better than that? LOL

IMG_0847There is no markings on it.

IMG_0854And this little beauty is my favorite color, purple! It’s actually a very pinky-purple. I love the pretty floral design and gold accents on them.

IMG_0850Isn’t the saucer so pretty! It’s definitely got some aging on it. I will try soaking it soon.


We are having French Vanilla Tea today.


And some yummy Crème de Pirouline Dark Chocolate cookies.





Yesterday the Princess and I were invited to a girl’s tea party. We had such a fun time enjoying tea, treats and wonderful company! Here are a few pictures.







All the girls were dressed in dresses, skirts, hats and other prettiness.

Now it is time to send a thank you note to our lovely hostess, Miss Kathy for the wonderful time!


Thank you for dropping by for a little tea today. I hope you enjoyed your visit and are having a wonderful day!

  1. What a GEM of a husband you have- that is a really beautiful teacup!

    And what a sweet tea party.

    I sure wish the gals around here would have them, I am the only one who does.

    I bet you really enjoyed yourselves. Everything looks so delicious. There is nothing more fun than a tea party!

  2. What a fabulous teacup. Beautiful colors. Such a lovely tea party. Everything looks so beautiful.

  3. You are lucky to have a husband that could choose such a pretty teacup Diann, it's very nice. The tea party you attended looked to be fun but then when is a gathering of ladies (young and old) not?
    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that sends thank you notes.

  4. Your new teacup is delightful! So pretty and elegant. It looks like everyone had a wonderful time at the party. Just beautiful Diann.

  5. Hello Diann,
    Your Troy certainly has a good eye! You have trained him well! LOL. Love the little teacup; cute as a button! I enjoy sending cards myself although I don't write as well as I used to. I'm glad I can type instead!
    Hope all is well and thank you for joining me for tea today.


  6. That teacup and saucer are gorgeous. (The chocolate must have been good, too, since I didn't see any in the picture. hehehe)

  7. Hi Diann,
    what a loving husband that he chose such a cute and feminine tea cup. It is really a treasure. How nice to attend a tea party with the Princess. Looks all so nice and yummy. Thanks for sharing.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  13. Very pretty teacup! I have quite the collection of them myself but ur gonna wanna kill me when I tell ya they are for making teacup bird feeders. Yeah they are going to be permanently glued together.

  14. I love your tea cup. My question is.....where do you keep your tea cup collection? I have many inherited tea sets and I don't exactly know how to display them unless in a table scape. I would love to know where you keep them all. Your blog is great. What fun!

  15. What a lovely tea there. The tea cups are very pretty in purple.
    Looks like some delicious goodies as well. Happy Tea Day!

  16. Hi Diann, how fun to go to a tea party with your daughter. I love the sweet Valentine teacup and saucer from hubby. The saucer has such a unique shape. Your cut glass candle holder is so pretty also. I picked up a turquoise one at a thrift store a week ago and I love it.

  17. DiAnn,
    That is one beauty of a tea cup!! Very Elegant!!
    A lovely tea scape!!


  18. What a delightful tea party it was. Complete with all the trimmings. Your valentine cup is lovely. Take care.

  19. Your hubby did a wonderful job! Remember, do NOT soak in bleach. It gets to the actual porcelain through any chips or crazing, and starts to deteriorate it.

    How fun for Princess and you! Camping AND tea parties, better call social services, because you are such a horrrrrrible mother. ;)

  20. What a beautiful and romantic cup. To drink from it and eat chocolate. There is a silver lining. The cookies are really yummy out. Thanks for the tea hour with you! Have a great Tuesday! Zinnia

  21. That was a precious and romantic gift from your hubby! And the tea party was gorgeous! Love every detail!
    I'm having a giveaway. Come check it out!

  22. Love your teacup - it is gorgeous - such a thoughtful, romantic gift! I would love to get the girls together for a tea party! Wish my girls were littler....those days pass too fast! Thank you so much for sharing with Home and Garden thursday,

  23. What a charming Valentine's gift! That cup is so sweet. I bet you all had the best time at the tea party. I can't think of too many things that sound more fun than a tea party.

  24. I've never seen a saucer like that one. What a beauty.

  25. I love the pink luster ware tea cups I think they are luster ware. It is always a good idea having a bit of tea and a little rest. Nice memories of tea time Have a Pink Day!
