Coming up roses

I have been really busy the past week
so tonight I am doing a lazy post.
Short but sweet :)

I want to join Martha's teacup party 
and here is a cup which used to belong to my little mother
but now belongs to my grandson.
He will treasure it.

It really is quite beautiful I think.
It is a Royal Albert, Old English Rose.
I have seen another  version of it 
but personally I like this one.
I think it was part of a wedding gift teaset
and this is all that is left. 

My little mother is doing well after her op 
and back to normal. Maybe just a little tired. 
Thanks for asking.

joining in with Martha at:
