On the bottom are the words Royal Standard Fashion. I don't know that any other of my tea cups are "Royal Standard".
This next three are all Royal Albert; this one is Pacific Dogwood pattern. I already own Royal Albert White Dogwood pattern which is not that much different but the shape of the cup is very different.
I had a lot of trouble photographing the cups and getting a lot of glare. I tried different backgrounds but nothing really worked. This pattern is Brigadoon. The thistles are blue and light purple.
Here I did manage to avoid that glare and I see that I forgot to take an individual picture of Laurentian Snowdrops, a teacup I already have. Now when you come for tea we can have matching cups!
Incidentally, the aqua throw was another of my finds this morning, at a different gs. It is so soft I will enjoy having it around my shoulders while I watch TV next winter. The throw was a dollar!
I'm not too sure exactly where this little pillow will end up but I liked it because of the ribbon embroidery on it. At least I think that is what it's called. The moss green fabric really sets it off.

Lastly here is my latest "cheese board and dome". I forgot to take a before picture. The base was wood grain so after DH sanded it I wiped on a thin layer of white paint which quickly dried and I gathered a few nature objects from the sunroom to display. That big holey thing is a seed pod BTW and the teeny weeny one to the left is a wasp nest. The rest are just quail eggs and a few feathers.
When I got home from garage sales of course I had to have tea and cake but after that I looked at how I could rearrange my cupboards to make room for the new cups. This lead to a couple of hours of changing things around which can be a lot of fun. I was not rushed and took my time. I managed to find half a dozen small serving bowls I rarely use that were taking up space and out they went into the box of give-away stuff. Now I intend to have a restful evening and hope you have one too. Granny M.
