Tea Cup Thursday

I visited my local consignment shop and found two similar tea cups. I bought them both but still can't decide which goes with which. I keep switching them back and forth. Perhaps you can help me decide ?

Hello Lady B,
Your Shelley teacups are fabulous and how nice to find them both so close in patterns so that you can mix them up. Personally, I like the busy set together and the soft set together. But it's fun to mix them up. Thanks for sharing and have a delightful day.

I love Shelley, so whatever you choose will be awesome! I have that one in pink & blue as well. I love their chintz patterns!

Shelley teacups are so special, and yours are really pretty!
I suspect it should be the busy cup and saucer together, and the soft cup and saucer together, but who cares!
They look fabulous either way, and how lucky you have both to play with. :)

Shelley's are the finest, most delicate teacups. Indeed special. These were a find. I left them there in the Treasure Exchange for you. Ha.
I think they look perfect either way.

Thanks so much for your input. I really appreciate the good advice!

Beautiful teacup and great addition to your collection.

LOVE those teacup & saucers. I understand your match up problem. Hmmmm, you MUST own all four pieces then the problem is solved...
Have a fun weekend,

How can you go wrong? Mix and match! Either way you have collected enough of beautiful Shelley here that would make anyone green with envy. Beautiful!Congrats on your great find my dear.

Oh gosh! I see your dilemma! How about just decided each time you use them what you like best that day? Who cares, just go with what you like! Either way, they look amazing! I have not seen this Shelley pattern before, and I love it. I am always partial to a yellow cup! And you can't go wrong with Shelley!
