Bee Tea Cup

Recently on a shopping trip
I found this cute tea cup and saucer
I bought this tea cup
 because I like it. . .
It isn't made by a fancy designer
Just a plain old "made in China"
 Oh, it isn't vintage, nor is it a collectible.
 Just a cute tea cup to add to my collection
I call it the Bee Tea Cup
It has Bees on it and inside the cup.
It is colorful and it reminds me of a
Spring Time Tea Party.
It may not be vintage nor a collectible now
But someday it will be. . .
My Grandmother's Tea Cup wasn't vintage nor collectible
When she bought hers. . .
It is with time and making memories that this
Tea Cup will become
Vintage and Collectible.
Remember NO tea or coffee for me
Hot Chocolate is fine.
I will be linking this to


  1. I love your tea cup, and the thing I like best about it is the little sweet! I love tea cups too but I drink hot chocolate in mine! ;D

  2. SO pretty!! I love the bee inside too :)

  3. Hello Karie,
    you are absolutely right. Things don't need to be vintage nor collectibles. A nice design is just wonderful and your cup is really nice designed. A real treasure. Wish you a wonderful week.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  4. You're so right about the tea cup. The memories make it special. My tea cups I love best are the ones that have a story.

  5. I have the same teacup and I love it. Love the bee, the butterflies, the hummingbird, the dainty flowers. It has put a spring in my step and is destined to be a favorite! Happy Tea Day!

  6. I feel the same way! When I buy it, it might be new, but will be antique to my grandchildren!
    Your cup is very spinglike and pretty with all those flowers. I have "made in Japan" tea cups that are really lovely too.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  7. That is so pretty, Karie! I love that the detail is even on the inside of the cup!

  8. That is such a sweet tea cup, Karie! I agree with you about tea cups being antiques someday. I just hope my grandchildren will have an appreciation for them! I only have one little granddaughter who is only five months old right now but who I hope to pass my china on to someday. Thank you for sharing and for joining me for tea. Have a lovely day.


  9. That is so cute! A really adorable cup this is! You are right, for it to become vintage, it must wait a while. Everything we like and is pretty is special anyways. And your grandchildren will one day say the same thing! :)


  10. I'm glad you bought the tea cup. Who cares if it's not something with a fancy name! It's pretty! Linda

  12. Hi Karie,

    I just love your springtime teacup with that adorable bee! All that matters is what is beautiful to you and over time the teacup will become a vintage memory. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Hi Karie! I'm looking for a particular bee teacup and I think this might be it. Does it say what company it's from?


I read each comment and I appreciate the time you spend to leave me one. Thank you so much.
