Plain Jane

As things are once again returning to a normal routine after a busy holiday season, there is sometimes a need to take a moment and relax. I don't always need a fancy teacup to enjoy some Earl Grey or an Herbal blend.

My newest teacup is just a plain looking cup and saucer.

But this little lady has some regal background.

Royal Albert Bone China Made in England. "Val Dor" is the signature name.

So if I want to dress up my tea time, I bring along a few friends to keep Her Majesty Plain Jane company.

I am joining Lady Katherine, Tuesday Tea for Two, Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday, Martha's Favorites , Sandi's Tea Time Tuesday and Tea Cup Tuesday. Please take a few minutes and join these ladies for a lovely spot of tea.

Hello Joycelyn,
great tea cup. I love Val d'or. I have a complete set of 8 tea trios with the Royal Albert pattern Flower of the Months serie December. I combined them with a creamer/sugar set of Val d'or because I don't like the one of the Flower of the Montsh pattern. Val d'Or is really elegant and perfect with those pretty china, you have shown.
Greetings, Johanna

It is a beautiful and classy cup! One of the best things about a "plain" cup is that it matches just about any teapot. Thank you so much for sharing it with us today.

Love your new tea cup and saucer! I think it is quite elegant! Speaking of tea, I am off to make a cup for myself. After all, it is just about that time of day!
