Teacups of Violets


 My collection of vintage "violets" English Bone China teacups.
Below are a few of my "new" teacups,
including Violet and Yellow Primrose by Royal Albert.

I am celebrating this last week of February by sipping
my tea from these pretty English Bone China teacups.

Hello Linda,
Your china today is so fresh and pretty in violets and pretty flowers. Each cup has it's own special shape and style. What a pretty spring table they would all set together!
Hugs,

Just beautiful! I grew up in the country and on one side of the old farmhouse wild violets grew all over the grass. I LOVED it. This brought back so many found memories for me!
