ADDING ONE MORE CUP AND SAUCER for "Open House"



Whenever I go antiquing, I always manage to find something that I can add to my collection of linens, vintage costume jewelry, cake platter,  or tea set item.  Like many of you, I love the "hunt" for the treasures.  I recently found this cup and saucer which is English Bone China by Rosina China Company.  The pattern is "Queens".

Recently I have noticed patterns that some of my blogging friends collect.....I struggle....do I tell them I saw their beloved pattern at a bargain price or keep my mouth shut?  







The gold on this tea cup and saucer is lovely.  The painting was a gift from Colorado Springs
artist, Sharon Dougherty.





Today is "Open House" which means you are invited to share a post from your blog about anything to do with home, cooking, antiquing, collecting, DIY, decorating garden, etc.

I am also linking to Feathered Nest Friday and Home Sweet Home
and Share Your Cup Thursday and HOME

Oh definately shoot your tea friends an email (so it is private) to let them know of your bargain. Maybe they will even want to BUY it from you, ya never know!

LOVE your new treasured find, and that painting is gorgeous.

Thank you for hosting.

Hugs.

Hi Bernideen. I LOVE your new teacup! Gorgeous! So pretty with the gold frame. Your collage is lovely. My post today was about the London Underground & Kate's birthday, so that didn't seem to fit your Home theme to link.

I love teacups and I love to use them and have tea parties. My friend that just died and I used to have tea parties with shut ins.

We may have met by chance...but we become friends by choice.

The teacup goes so well with the painting. Very lovely!

Bernideen, I have only the two Old English Rose teacups. I got one for twelve dollars and the other for eight. Both were found at thrift shops and in perfect condition. I felt I had gotten a good deal on them. I definitely would pay ten for those plates you saw! It is hard to resist a good bargain, especially when it's china and linen. Thanks for your visit and have a super weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Bernideen,
That's always a tough one...finding something somewhere for cheaper. I've had several friend's who've had that happen and I always bite my lip "-/.
Your tea cup is gorgeous!!

I know what you mean, Bernideen! If someone has specifically asked for help locating an item, I'll tell them. But usually, I figure the "thrill" is in the personal hunt, so I just wait and let them come upon the item one day on their own.

Hi Bernideen, I think they would be happy to know. Then it's up to them if they act on it or not. Love your beautiful roses. Both real and on the teacup. I must remember Open House. Adding it to my sidebar. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
