Tea cups
I was dropping off a few packages at the post office this week, and somehow found myself at a favorite gift shop near our historic downtown, afterwards. ;0)

I picked out a few sticker sheets and was checking out when I noticed some beautiful transferware tea cups.

Hello Kelli,

I love transferware, I collect blue and white. Your teacups are precious, I was hoping you'd tell us if they were new or old and show the stamp on the bottom. Brown is Martha Stewart's favorite transferware color.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Kathi :)
