October is such a wonderful month full of autumn blaze and comfortable temps. It is also my birthday month (pink birthstone) and a lot of pink things around for the month calling to mind breast cancer awareness. My sister picked up a few cups for me at garage sales thinking of cups on a stick. This pink one I think I will keep in the house for a while. The simplicity of this cup makes a regal statement; it calls to mind the 1950’s for me. However, I could be very wrong as I can not find the pattern name anywhere. Note the delicate pink swirl on the plate with a flute around that area of the saucer. This is a perfect cup for October.
My friends brought me the new green set for my birthday along with tablecloth, towels, and candle. Everything is in warm autumn tones of avocado, browns, rusts and pumpkins. It makes a great October statement!
One other cup for today is the Crown Ducall cup I picked up at the Goodwill store. I foolishly left others there and they were gone in a few hours when I called back for them. This cup is not colors I would normally choose, but it screamed BUY ME when I saw it. It is rich and very Victorian looking to me. I can not find this pattern name anywhere either.
