A Teacup Christmas Tree
Hello Dear Friends,
Did you know that Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage is hosting a Christmas in July Tea Party ?
Unfortunately, all of my Christmas decorations are now packed away.
Although if you look closely at my Christmas tree from December 2012, hopefully you will see some teacups hanging on my Teacup Christmas Tree. Every Christmas I hang favourite pink and rosy teacups on our tree ~ it's our family tradition.
(Only pink decorations will match my dining and living room colours ~ red clashes terribly with my rosy coloured furniture.)
I just add pretty ribbons and hang my special and favourite pink saucer-less teacups on the Christmas Tree. I found this little darling recently.
Since it is unmarked I'm not sure where it is made but perhaps this wee cup is from Bavaria.
It has a pretty tiny flower inside with gold trim visible when you take a sip. The flower on the outside somewhat resembles a fuschia flower.
Do you see the unique scalloped base?
Now for a more Christmasy looking teacup...
I did manage to find this adorable wee Christmas Holly demitasse last week at a little antique shop in Lynden. It came in the tiny box behind it.
Thank you for visiting "A Teacup Christmas Tree" in July!
In December I promise to show you some close up photos of my treasured teacups on my 2013 tree.
Today I am joining:
Hope to see you there!
