I thought I would include this little gem. I think its timely since Fergie was excluded from the wedding. This commemorates Andrew and Fergie's engagement. It is dated the 19th of March, 1986. The bottom says Wilton's Dorincourt with the name John Pierce. it also says "This loving cup No. 60 of a limited edition of 100. The inside of the cup says " Created Duke of York 10.00 a.m. 23rd July 1986." The initials on the front are joined red circles in front of a gold anchor. Don't you just love history??

Well, Im back from Florida and hope to stay put for awhile. Speaking of Florida, I went to a darling tea room in Delray called TeaLicious. While I was browsing the shelves, I came across this treasure! It is a commemorative teacup from Queen Elizabeth's coronation on June 2nd, 1953. It is gorgeous, and the flowers in the center are the English Rose, the Scottish thistle and daffodils (Northern Ireland perhaps?). Oh yes, I see a shamrock! It's always so much fun to discover a new treasure.
