Tea Cup Cloche

I had a little bit of Christmas under this cloche so I needed to change it out.  I saw one similar on Pinterest so decided to use a few cups from my tea cup collection. 
I also pulled out a few of the doilies I have to add to the display.  The tassel had been hanging on my bedroom door so that to went in the display.  

The bottom cup was a gift to me from a dear friend.  It has lovely shades of green which I don't have in any other of my cups.
The cute silver spoon is a Christmas tree ornament that I thought would go quite well in this display.  It does look rather rich with the tea cups so I'm pleased.  The cake plate I am using I won from a raffle last year.  I love it as it goes so well with the big collection of ruby flash Early American Pressed Glass items I have.


You can see I have used it in other displays around the house.

The middle cup and saucer do not match but go together rather well I think.  I like the style of the three legged cups as they are just a little different.  When I have a cup or saucer with out a mate I enjoy looking through second hand stores or antique shops for something that will go well with it.  I like picking up just a cup or saucer if I really like it since I know if I just keep looking I'll find a mate for it.

 The simple top cup has the pretty silver design to it.

I found the single rose in another display around the house so I decided it needed to be over here with this one for a little more interest.  The small white doily helps to highlight the red rose against the red crocheted doily.
I had fun changing out the Christmas decorations around the house and putting up some new ones.

  1. Hello Sue,
    Love your header of a Victorian Village! It is so charming.
    I love your teacups stacked under the cloche. The two go so well together, don't they? The Christmas spoon looks lovely with it all and the tassle is a nice touch.
    I'm so happy you have joined me for tea and I wish you a delightful rest of the week.


  2. Dear Sue, This is so sad and I should not even tell you but I will. That green tea cup...if only you had posted it a month ago...I gave the whole set to the goodwill. Tea cups and suacers, dinnerplate, bread plates. I kept the soup bowls and saucers as they had the double handle. I gave the veggie bowls too. I do have the platter and the covered tureen in the basement. I'm so sorry I gave them away as I would have sent them to you.
    Do you want the platter and tureen? I would be happy to mail them to you.

    1. Oh Shirley how sweet of you to think of me. Yes, I sure would have taken that set off your hands! :o) I would love the platter and tureen if you really have no use for it. I will send you the cost of postage so let me know!

  7. Love your collection of pretty teacups, I adore teacups myself...but then again, what don't I love! I had my C'mas teacups inside two big cloches too and I also love evrything classic. Now I'm off to follow you and it's so nice meeting you. I hope you come by and if you'd like do the same so we can visit more often. Hugs,

  8. Great idea for a cloche, Sue! It's nice to come up with new things to put under them. I find I do the same old, same old!

  9. Your cloche is adorable. Thank you for sharing your wonderful post at Potpourri Friday!

  11. I see you also love using a glass cloche as part of your displays. It just seems to give things more importance I think.
