Today I am featuring two very special cups. These cups are from Royal Doulton and they have Brambley Hedge artwork on them. Have you ever seen the beautiful Brambley Hedge books by Jill Barklem? I just love them. These cups are the ones that my daughter and I used to use when we had special tea parties. She's too old for that now, so now I imagine her using them with her own daughter some day. The Queen Elizabeth II coronation jug was my mother's and is another one I rescued from the Goodwill pile. The blue and white jug I bought at a flea market just because it was so pretty! The fabric in the background is from my "Purrfect Garden" line.
Here is a closer view of the cups. This style of cup is called a "beaker" in England. Someday I should probably look on Ebay for the remaining two in the series! Thanks for visiting me! As usual, if you want to see more teacups, head over to Martha's Favorites or Artful Affirmations.
