I don’t drink tea with lemon–I prefer milk and sugar. I do, however, like the way a lemon slice looks floating in it, especially if the teacup is old and beautiful. I bought this cup and saucer at an antiques emporium for a few bucks, and love it because it reminds me of my grandmother.
Here’s another view….
It’s kind of amazing how different-colored backgrounds can change the look of an object, isn’t it? I think Monet said it best:
“Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.”
OK everyone, I’m going out of town for a few days, but will post a photo on Friday and Monday. Probably won’t be able to comment until I get back.
Hope you’re all having a great week so far….
A lovely cup and I really like that Monet quote.
I don’t drink tea and lemon either but the lemon slice does look nice.
Have a great time wherever you go.
Thanks, Caroline. I’m going to a wedding in California. 🙂
This is a beautiful cup. Is it Russian? I have a slightly similar teapot.
It’s English bone china. Are you back from Bretagne? I loved seeing those pics.
My mom collects dainty tea cups like this. In fact it looks like one she has in her china cabinet.
That’s no surprise. When I posted this photo on a Scottish photo site, a lot of people said their mother or grandmother had this pattern!
Lemon in tea is pretty – but I’m with you – the English have it right, putting milk and sugar in tea.
For years I couldn’t stand tea, then someone suggested milk and sugar and I was hoooked! I can drink coffee black, but not tea.
Lovely china…I love the first shot. Enjoy your trip!
