Pretty Garden Teacups




I turn my linen piles over once in a while the way some people turn over the garden compost. After things get put away for awhile and then get unearthed again I know just where they are needed. I was actually looking for a pretty "bed" for my teacups to lay in while I took their picture, and decided on this bit of lace.




A single bloom can make a nice statement.




But a whole garden full is lovely too! I really don't have that many teacups. And I didn't pull them all out this time either, but a picture I saw on FB of a basket of china cups made me want to do my own. . . .




















A little Boxwood Basil in one of my favorite garden pots.










Teacups and cachepots can look lovely together!





If only you could just grow more teacups and saucers!






I hope you enjoyed the stroll through my Teacup Garden!

That's a garden I could sink my hands into. Lovely snuggled into the lace.

Oh yes, I enjoyed this stroll through your teacup garden. Such pretty soft colors on the china, and I love that lace!

What a splendid idea. So pretty. My favorite teacup was the white ones with little roses on the outside and all the teacups with roses on the inside. I guess I like them all.

I sure could dig up a few pretty teacups from your garden Jacqueline. Very pretty collection. Pamela

I just love a floral teacup--especially in these beautiful light colors...so pretty!

This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, Jacqueline: "Come into my garden, my flowers would like to meet you." Or in your case, Teacups! It's hard to choose which one is prettier... I love the creamy ones with the smallish flowers scattered over the bowl; but the the pretty white ones with flowers running along the handle are beautiful, too. And then those big roses! Or the sweet "eyelet" ones. You could have a Wonderland Tea Party for your grandchildren and let them change seats and get a different cup each time they'd like more!

Lovely tea cups and tea cup garden. I love all the colors and the patterns and I like them with the lace very romantic.

Sigh, I loved strolling through your teacup garden.... The white teacup with the roses inside and on the handle tugged at my hear strings. I was reminded of my Mom's good china set, that sadly was donated before I thought to ask about it (I live may provinces away). So nice to see your beautiful photographs. Thanks, Patty/BC

Oh, I do like that idea of a teacup garden! Yours are lovely! I found a Limoges teacup this week it was a deal! I have never had one. Teacups that are really pretty are hard to come by. Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
