Tea Time Tuesday

"Never save anything for a special occasion.
  Being alive is the special occasion." 

I'm linking up with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday!

This is my favorite of all of my collection. It belonged to my maternal grandmother.  I really don't know anything about its history.  It has no markings.  I wonder if it may have been purchased in France, as my step-grandfather was stationed in Paris after World War II with NATO.

I love the pink color and the shell shape.  I think it's a demitasse cup, as it's smaller than a teacup.  You can't tell in the picture, but it's so thin and translucent that you can see light through it.

Sorry that this picture isn't better, but I had to show you the tiny shell feet!

Thanks for visiting, and have fun checking out the other posts on Sandi's blog!
