"Take Ye A Cuppe O' Kindness For Auld Lang Syne"

Happy New year dear friends!  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

I thought this would be a good time to share my "Take Ye A Cuppe O' Kindness For Auld Lang Syne" teacup and saucer with you!





The over sized teacup is made by The Rowland & Marselius Co.  Staffordshire, England.  The saucer has lots of crazing and a chip on the side, but still a good buy for $12.00!












Look what my grandson and girlfriend gave me for Christmas!  What a surprise!  My poor dishes!  But what a cuddler, just what I needed!





Some more of my china hutch decorated simply for Christmas.  I love the square plate by Johnson Bro's.  Named "Country Life".








On the top of the hutch a Royal Tudor Ware teapot named  "Olde England", and made by Barker Bro's. ltd, England.  My two china dogs, what are they looking at?





Some more Christmas decorations around the house.  A Johnson and Bro's. Friendly Village platter named "The Covered Bridge". on the mantle.






A darling Grace's teacup, a Christmas gift from last year.





I changed my tea cart during Christmas week, using my "A Cup Of Christmas Tea" teapot and teacups.









One more thing to share with you!  I found this needlepoint teapot cozy at a thrift store recently.  I am sure it has never been used!





Well now I am ready for tea!  Look at the sweet teacup!  It is stamped  Yuletide Series, N-C-336A, hand painted.









Harney & Son's Hot Cinnamon Spice tea and the last of the Christmas cookies!  Wish you could join me!








Thank you so much for stopping by!  May you have lots of blessings this New Year!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  No Place Like Home,  BTTCG Blog Party, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday, and Share Your Cup Thursday.

Hi Nancy! When I saw your post it reminded me that I have the same exact oversize teacup in red transferware, but mine is made by Anchor in England.
Love your needlepoint Tea Cozy, and it was fun seeing all your pretty china displays, and new kitty Christmas present. Happy New Year! Love, Phyllis

What a charming post - and I love the oversize teacup. All your tea things are so wonderful - the matching teapot and teacups is so special. I'd love to join you for a cup of tea and a cookie - just the thing for this time of the year.

Happy New Year, dear Nancy! What fun to see all your pretty dishes! I love the Auld Lang Syne teacup! That is a treasure. Love your little trees sitting in the china too. The kitten is adorable and he will give you cuddles during the winter months, I'm sure. What a darling Christmas gift from your grandson and his girl! Your post is charming and thank you for sharing it with us. Happy a lovely day, my friend.

Blessings,

What a great, oversized teacup for ringing in the New Year, Nancy. I loved seeing all your JB dishes, and your Cup of Christmas tea ones. I'd love to sit and share a cookie and a cuppa tea with you. My favorite teacup is the Yuletide one with the nostalgic hand painted design...swoon!! What did you name your kitty?
Happy New Year, Nancy!

Pamela M. Steiner said...

Oh so lovely! Thank you for sharing your cuppa for Olde Lang Syne...(I didn't spell it right probably) but that was so unique! Really special.
I hope you and yours will have a blessed and happy New Year...please let me know if you make it back to FL. I am retired now!

I also love your Auld Lang Syne china too! Your kitty is dear and what a thoughtful gift. It's so nice to cuddle a little pet. Blessings Dear Nancy! Karen

Donna Heber said...

Hi Nancy, Happy New Year! It looks like it will be a wonderful one with your new furry friend. Have you named him or her? All your China is so gorgeous!

Art and Sand said...

Your post was definitely one where you shared your cup. All the cups are lovely, but that first one with the words "Auld Lang Syne" is beautiful.

Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!

I just love all of your pretty dish ware, especially the brown teacups. Your kitty is so adorable. He looks like our Cyrus who is a Black Burmese. He did not last that size for long and although he is only 6 months old, he is quite large and heavy! They are very lovable and sweet kitties.

Deb said...

What a beautiful collection of tea cups, Nancy. Love the one with the little bird. And speaking of 'little', a big "Welcome" to the new addition. How adorable. Name?

Visiting from Deborah...and can't remember the name of her blog but it's the one with a heart in a cup of coffee...Montgomery is her last name.
Sheesh. The tea cozy is fabulous as are all your dishes. I caught a glimpse of the red ware China in your previous post and it's beyond fabulous!
Cute kitten, what's the name?

I just wanted to say I picked up a cup N-C 336D/Yuletide Series a couple of years ago at an antique store and I have periodically been trying to figure out the maker. If you happen upon anything, please let me know.
I can send you a photo of it if you like.
Thank you and have a wonderful day.
