Earlier this year I came across a photo of this teacup and decided I had to have one like it. Alas, it was $75 and I wasn't willing to pay that. So I trolled eBay for most of the year until I found one for a much more reasonable $14.99, and then I made the purchase.
Now can you guess why I just had to have this particular Royal Albert teacup? Was it the pretty chintz pattern or the nice swirly handle design?
No. I guess you could say it just had my name on it!
