Isn't it beautiful?! Not as beautiful as my friend "S" who gave it to me. She is a master thrifter and fashionista, which is a great combination. It means she dresses fabulous for a song.
She said she saw this and immediately thought of me. What a sweetheart. Then again, I remind people of teacups and she reminds people of Audrey Hepburn, hmmm.
If you've visited my place before, you know I'm an equal opportunity dish collector. Especially if it's a lovely little tea cup. When I flipped it over and saw that it is by Royal Albert though, I admit I caught my breath.
Another thing that makes this diminutive cup special is that I have my grandmother's birthday teacup. It was also made in England, and goes surprisingly well with my August one. She would be thrilled, as am I.
So much fun in one little cup! Do you have a new teacup, a particular favorite, or one that belonged to someone special? Do tell!
