Tea in the Library #28

How the waiting countryside thrills with joy when Bluebird brings us the first word of returning spring.

Reflecting heaven from his back and the ground from his breast,

Shelley Bluebird & Roses
 he floats between sky and earth like the winged voice of hope.
- WL Dawson, Birds of Ohio, 1903

 Shelley Blue bird & Roses. 
This cup sold for $649.00 on eBay last May. The cup was to pricey for me but I can look at the picture and dream! Who knows one may be sitting in a thrift shop just waiting to be rescued.

  1. Really beautiful!
    I have felt in love with your tea cup

  2. Oh my goodness, but that is a cup to covet! lol! It is the loveliest bird tea cup I have seen. Shelley really is a fab company.
    We can dream : )

  3. Yes we can dream! I love Shelley! It would be fun to see it in the shop and just hold it! Maybe we all will find one in a thrift shop. Have a great time dreaming!


  4. Oh, my! I love everything about this cup ... the shape, the design (love the bird), but not the price. I think this will go on all tea lovers wish list. Wow! Happy Tea Day!

  5. What a truly lovely tea cup. Shelley prices run high but I imagine they are worth it.

  6. I hope I am the one who finds it at the thrift store! Don't worry we can share it. One week you the other me! :) Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Martha
