Teacup Thursday: A Vintage Aynsley Teacup

I am participating with Miss Spenser's Blog Teacup Thursday. 

This is a vintage Aynsley Bone China teacup and saucer made in England. It's marked 2751, but I can't find facts about this pretty teacup online.  Mary found it for me in a shop in Florida and paid $13 for it.  
I remember my first Aynsley purchase in a junk shop in a small village in England on a Sunday afternoon in the spring of 2002. 
I can't remember the name of the village, but I do remember that while I did a little shopping, GJ and AJ visited with a couple of local fellows as they were fishing in a pond in the village green. 
Aren't memories grand?!?

Your Aynsley teacup is gorgeous. What a lovely shape and the price was great.

Travel memories are wonderful, although I'm finding it easier to hold on to them these days by keeping a travel journal.

What a lovely teacup! Enjoyed your blog about tea and tea parties. Hope you'll stop by and pay me a visit too. Have a delightful day.

Thanks for stopping by. How neat would that be if we could buy china in our local grocery store? Not the plain stuff today that is ugly but the cute, girly stuff our grandmothers and mothers had access to. I was watching National Velvet last night sighing over the fact that they were eating off of red transfer ware china and those were no doubt their everyday china.
Your cup is so cute and yes, great memory.

What a lovely teacup. I hope you enjoy using it during your recuperation from surgery. When do you have it scheduled? My husband has certainly been doing better after the surgery in June.
