Yellow Teacup


So often I see beautiful teacups on blogs I visit.
They often have pink roses or delicate pink flowers.
I say to myself, oh how I would love a pink teacup.
Then I go browsing in the antique mall always keeping my eye out for
the perfect pink teacup.
I don't often buy teacups because how many do I need.
But I would love a perfect, beautiful pink teacup.

Strange though, when I go looking for that pink teacup,
I find the perfect yellow teacup.
Yes, it does have a few pink flowers on it,
but really I would have to say it is a yellow teacup.
So what is a girl to do?
I give up, I think I have a collection of yellow teacups.
I found this one recently at an antique mall in Sebastopol, California.
They have great antique shops, but just no beautiful, perfect pink teacups.

Marilyn, it's gorgeous! I would love to have a perfect yellow teacup! My mom has started to collect teacups with yellow primroses on them, so I hope to find something like that.

Your newest teacup in your collection is beautiful. The design is quite unlike any I have seen before ~ so unique. I have a nice assortment of yellow teacups and am always happy to set the table in yellows, sometimes blues, mostly pinks.

A tea cup collections is a good thing no matter what the color. HPS!

Well that may just be the prettiest yellow teacup yet! I LOVE the elegance of the design and how the black really makes it pop.

This is a very pretty pattern and I can see you sipping green tea from it perhaps. Hope the perfect pink cup and saucer is waiting in an antique mall somewhere close by!

Happy Independence Day - enjoy your holiday.

Maybe one day we can compare sets and swap a few!! I do have a lot with mainly PINK... though I have to agree with the other happy commentators here that your YELLOW set is lovely. What's a gal to do, indeed ;-) xo from T&D

Oh, this is a very pretty cup, Marilyn! It has a very pleasing graphic feel--I like the "balance" of the black and the pastel tones. Very elegant! I used to have a huge tea cup collection (love of pink among the cups ;o), but had to downsize when I moved abroad. I still have a few favorites though, and use them a lot. Just nothing so lovely an experience as one's favorite tea drunk from a fine, china cup... Happy Week! And Happy 4th! :o) ((HUGS))

Hi Marilyn,

You are so right about the perfect pink teacup! I'm always attracted to pink teacups and have so many in my collection.

I love the yellow teacup! It has lots of character and a dainty pattern.

You have inspired me to think out of the "pink box". LOL!

Happy 4th of July,

Darlene
