$5. Three footed tea cup find…

922292219223
My daughter spotted this little treasure under a bunch of other tea cups at the thrift store.  Was really excited to show me and I of course had to purchase it.  Still can’t tell if they are a matching set, but she was so sweet about finding one & the excitement in her eyes was darling!  Love that she will always search for a three footed tea cup with me in mind!   xoox, Tracie
Thanks for visiting & check out to see where I am linking up to this week!!!!

Hi Tracie,
thats so sweet that your daughter found it and thought of you. It's beautiful! I've yet to see one of those 3 footed tea cups but the next time I go to the antique mall or the flea market I'll keep my eyes open for one. I hope your weeks is a good one.

Hello Tracie,
Your new cup is so pretty! How sweet of your daughter to keep such a keen eye out for your favorite type of cup!
The cup and saucer sure do look alike. The roses seem to be the same. But you never know without matching the backstamp, and even then, it is not for sure.
But they look fab together!
Hugs,
Terri
