Teacups and Roses

As everyone knows, I love roses.
I love teacups too.
This Royal Albert country rose is my all time favorite design.
Sadly,  I do not own any, but maybe someday!
These pictures are courtesy of:
Just wanted to show a few,
And enjoy the roses!
And Pansies.

And last..this old mug.
After looking at the beautifully decorated cups and saucers,
it has no beauty at all.
Still I love and use it.
My Mother In Law gave it to me 40 years ago.
Sometimes when I would be up with my youngest baby,
 I would make myself a cup of coffee and sit and rock him.
Sometimes when I was waiting for teenagers to come home,
I would make a cup and sit and wait.
And now that I am older and the house is quiet,
 I still sometimes get up in the wee hours of the morning
and have a cup and remember other times.
And the memories make it beautiful!
Have a great day, and God Bless!
