Teacup Thursday with "Miss Spenser's Blog"

Through blogging I have become"acquainted" with some great people who love all things tea like I do! Two of those are Donna Hardin and her daughter Spenser who operate "Miss Spenser's Tea Room" in New Virginia, Iowa not far from Des Moines!  Some of my Colorado Springs customers who now live in Des Moines go there for tea!  I know it is lovely!  I know Spenser is a talented harpist and presents theatricals that women love!

Donna asked me to share a cup and saucer today as part of her "Teacup Thursday" posting!  I bought this cup and saucer from a customer last year.  It commemorates the visit of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip to Canada in 1959. Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations ( )has shared that she remembers this day when the Queen visited Canada when Sandi was a little girl.  She will never forget that the Queen waved to her! Imagine that thrill!

Sometime on my trip to or from Minnesota, I'd like to stop at Miss Spensers -- love your teacup!

That is a wonderful cup and saucer! I remember that visit too. I was only a little girl at the time but the Queen waved to me. She bears an uncanny resemblance to my mother on the teacup. Have a lovely day.

One of the tea shops that I visited a few years ago had a Queen Elizabeth cup, similar to yours, and my younger sister saw it and said "Oh you need this one!". So I had my tea with the Queen that day. (that shop had each customer pick their own teacup from the shelf.. that was really fun!) I have a small but growing collection of QE II things, so I need to find a teacup like that. I have always felt like she was my Queen. I am American, but I lived in Canada when I was young and sang "God Save The Queen" in school.

I was quite young during that visit and don't remember seeing the Queen. The commemorative cup and saucer is lovely.
