VTT - There's Gold in Them Thar China Cabinets!


I promised Elizabeth of "Home Is Where The Heart Is" that I'd show my 3-legged tea cup today. So I'll show a few other golden items from the china cabinet as well!

The 3-legger is a big cup - coffee size.
This one, also, probably holds a good 8 - 10 ounces (283 grams).
And this one is a petite 1-1/2 inches tall (or short) (3.81 cm)!

Now, go visit Suzanne's blog to see all the other VTT's today!

Hi Sue,

Oh may the three legged teacup is so lovely! and the way the legs curl is very unusual. What a great find and it even has a matching teapot too, just divine!. Thank you so much for posting your teacup for me to see.
Have a wonderful day,
Elizabeth

Hi Sue,
I just had to see this pretty little tea cup again and then I noticed you had shown the teacup upside down so we could see the feet, and you know what I thought (I thought it was a mini teapot) oh heavens me, sometimes I really need to wear my glasses even at the computer with a large screen. LOL.
Enjoy your day,
Elizabeth

The gold makes it all look so elegant. I have NEVER seen a 3-legged cup (or any legged cup, for that matter) before! How unique can you get.
