A Spring tea cup

Spring is in the air even though the wind is biting cold.
It's a good day for tea

In my English porcelain tea-cup found in a little thrift shop in Almonte, Ontario for $3.00.  I loved the shape of the handle.
Tea and home-made chocolate chip cookies on a sunny, cold afternoon hits the spot.
Tea for one works for me because my company prefers to play hide and seek. "Hi Audrey."
After tea, finishing up another look for my little cupboard.
I'm joining Sandi at for Teacup Tuesday and Ruth at, and
hugs, Deb


  1. Audrey has a stunningly beautiful face.

  2. I know, Jane. I have never see such a face in all my many years. She is so lion-like with the wide, flat nose and pout. She draws you right a magnet.

  3. That is a pretty tea cup Deb! I'm not sure where this cool wind and snow is coming from. I was hoping spring was around the corner! It appears not. :(

    Happy Monday!

    Your teacup is a very pretty one. It reminds me of springtime even though the weather may not feel like it! No matter, Spring is on its way! Thanks for joining me for tea today.


  5. What a pretty tea cup --it DOES look like spring!

  6. What a lovely teacup find! I love the delicate pattern. And I'm glad to meet you and Audrey. I have a Tinker who is shy as well. I love your cupboard. Such a perfect cottage theme! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  7. What a pretty tea cup! Love, love, love your kitties! It sounds like you have the perfect job (for you). Good for you, Deb!!!
    Hugs, Beth

  8. Audrey reminds me of a jungle cat. Like a leopard or something. It's something about her face...

  9. What a beautiful teacup. Audrey can join me for tea anytime.

  10. Love your cubboard. A very nice space for some very nice pieces.
    A pretty tea cup and a pretty kitty too.

  11. Lovely post! Check my blog and give me like on Facebook if you want :)

  12. What a beautiful cup! You have just the spring that still feels cold is the perfect time for a hot cup of tea. What a cute katt.Ha a nice Tuesday! Zinnia

  13. Lovely cup and saucer. The pattern is so delightful and elegant in it's simplicity. The ribbing is lovely and is that a relief along the top? Just perfect! Now why can't they figure out how to make our large capacity cups look half as nice?

    Give the little lion a kiss from us. How about a photo of our Ed? Hope Lily is doing fine!

  14. I love your teacup. Audrey is growing up to be a lovely young lady! Never dull and boring around your house. An extra hug to Lily.

  15. Hi: What a beautiful cup. You have a lovely home and a wonderful cat. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha
