I found this delicate cup with a mark saying Mignon and it looks like that was a popular china maker in the 1880’s. I could not find the pattern name; if anyone recognizes it, I would appreciate knowing the name.
I also got a great price on this Winnie the Pooh set. I normally don’t choose this kind of tea pot even though I think they are sweet. I have to have some kind of guideline and try to force myself to stay with florals or solid colors. But oh my, I thought the flower garden that Pooh and friends were frolicking in around the tea pot’s bottom just made this theme tea pot a must have. I can always hope that some day I might share a pot and a Pooh story with a grandchild or two.
And one last thing from this week was this little pink perk from a friend. She gave it to me as a thank you gift for helping her with her mother's 90th birthday celebration. It is a mini cup but a sweet one.
