Tuesday Teacup — Three Red Roses




~ Continuing with Valentine's Week Roses Teacups ~
This vintage teacup is a Royal Standard Three Red Roses pattern teacup. 
Royal Standard is a trade name of Chapmans Longton Ltd, Longton, Staffordshire c 1930.

Yesterday was the first Valentine's Day for AJ to give a gift to a "girlfriend."  He was nervous about taking gifts to school to give her.  I suppose he thought he would be the only one.  As it turned out, many sixth grade girls received gifts from boys. The most popular gifts were cards, chocolates, teddy bears, and roses.  AJ's gal was pleased to receive a card and a small box of chocolates at school.  The rest of the gifts were in my car ready to be presented to her after school, a Valentine pillow pet, a heart-shaped cookie from Panera and a Happy Valentine's Day balloon.
And, he was happy when she accepted his invitation to the school dance on Friday night. 
What fun!
