Which would you pick?

These are three teacup and saucer sets done in the three colorways of RJR‘s A is for Anabelle fabric collection.  Which would you pick?  I am not normally a green person, but the green colorway is causing my heart to flutter…

Teacups and saucers have popped up at sundry times at Ivory Spring… because we are somewhat serious about teacups and such over here.

  1. Green is my VERY favorite color, but this time I have to go with the pink. As a side note, I wish I was there to have tea with you.

  2. Oh dear, I’m not sure I can pick. If it were me, I’d probably use all three colorways in the same quilt. :-) If I have to say, I’m torn between the pink and the green.

  3. Weel, you know that they really aren’t my types of fabrics but,of the three, the green would be my favorite. Now make up those teacups in brights and I’d be there!

  4. Blue has always been a very soothing color for me. However, the green looks delicious. But then, the pink is la-tea-dah! I wonder how lavender would be like…

  5. I’m in love with all three, but the green you like is super cute.

    As to your cups and saucers, the Spode Blue Italian sets my heart aflutter!


    Sheila :-)

  6. Boy, tough choice is right – but I think the green gets my vote, even though I adore pink! Beautiful teacups Wendy, I miss my collection – but only sometimes, as it was a pain to dust, lol!

  7. Green’s my favorite. I think I like it because it would coordinate more easily with modern home decor. I also like the suggestions other readers have made regarding combining the green with pink in one quilt. They’re all lovely, though!

  8. i am partial to the pink and white fabrics

    it would be a tossup of the white and go tea cup verses

    the pink ones. one could add so many accents!

  9. Like them all though the pink and green are great. Love all your photography – you may have another career there…as if you ever have the time !! :)

  10. I like the green teacup but I love the pink. I just love the color pink. I also love the Lady Carlyle teacup, would love to add it to my teacup collection.

  11. I love them all, I’d have a hard time choosing. It’s lovely in the blue or the green. You have some gorgeous teas sets and treaures, I love the silver spoon big time.

  12. I have to tell you that I’m loving the fabrics and I’d pick all three lines.

    As for the teacups. even though I collect them, I’m not sure if I like them in quilts. It’s not you, it’s me. I’m weird. I don’t even like Sunbonnet Sue or House blocks. But, I have to confess, that after seeing the pink teacup applique several times, I’m beginning to think it is adorable.
