Moss Rose Collection for Teacup Tuesday

http://www.marthasfavorites.com/ and http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/ are the hostesses for this event. You can go to their sites for more links and to see their wonderful tea cups. Happy Teacup Tuesday! I guess I missed last Tuesday. Time just seems to slip away from me. I decided to share my Moss Rose Collection of various teapots and teacups today...






The teapot below is musical. The music box is on the base and when you pick it up it plays "Tea for Two".






On the right is the first of my collection--the pieces that got me started. They are luncheon plates with matching cups and the little indentation on the plates for the cups to set. The rest is history. My collection grew. I loved the little egg cups when I saw them. I seem to have some sort of fascination with egg cups as well? Who knew?



Below is my entire collection all snug in their display cabinet.






I can't wait to see what you are all sharing for Teacup Tuesday!

I love Moss Roses and this set is just so pretty! Love those egg cups, too! You have such a nice collection and the birdies look right at home!
Hope you are having a great week! It's warm here and we're in the final leg of practice for the bike ride on the 6th.
Hugs,
Jan

Your rose tea collection is fabulous! And you have three tea pots! I love them all but the rounder one is so vintage looking. Your egg cups are really special. There is something wonderful about precious egg cups, I agree with you,

Beautful collection you have! My husband's great grandmother collected tea cups so I have a very large collection of hodge podge cups - each is an individual. I've never realized they were whole sets! Thanks for sharing you pretty set!
