CELEBRATING VALENTINE'S DAY ON TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 297!




Hi Ladies!  Can you believe this?  I am on time, my Valentine Decorations are all up and all  in spite of having my laundry room painted and up dated.  I shocked myself.  Want to know the best part? I am telling you anyway, my son is better than last week!  Praise the Lord, he is healing with out the help of any medication.  God is so good.  He is even eating dairy food again. Amazing how prayer can work miracles. I can't wait until I can tell you that he is off to school and work again.  



I am sharing pink, Lusterware tea cups.  This first one is a footed beauty from Germany.  Too cute!



The next is a Lusterware Mustache Tea Cup.  Don't you just love the fact that it is pink?



Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays.  I do hope yours will be wonderful.  


The painting on the wall was a gift several years ago, on Valentine's Day from my husband. It is my house before all the flowers took over.  It looks so simple and plain.  Now my home is filled with roses and flowers.  Just shows you what time can do with a  garden. 


Have a great week. Below are some of the parties I am linking too.

Blessings, Martha

IT'S GETTING BETTER ON TEA CUP TUESDAY!


Hello dear friends and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No 296!  I must admit before I get any further with this post, I have not completed my Valentine Decorations for 2016.  I am going to use some of my previous year's pictures.  I just running late, but by next week it should be all up.  I have taken the January decorations off. 





Have you noticed what Google did?  Some of your followers will be removed if you follow them in different ways.  When I first noticed it I thought some of you had just abandoned ship. I turned 64 recently and the song by the Beatles came to mind: Will you still need me, when I am 64?  What a great relief when I found that I was not abandon, because of the year I have had.  Hope you have had a good week.  My has been real good.  My son is getting better everyday, I am just so thankful to God for that.  I feel like some of my old life is coming back.  I made a costume for my Princess Maya, she wanted to be a Greek Goddess.  What do you think?  I hope she likes it. 




The cups I am sharing this week are both Lefton.  I really love some of their hand painted cups.  This first one has insides completely painted with large roses and the outside is gold leaf.  It is an amazing piece.  It is one of those rare cups  I only decorate with, I don't want to risk breaking this one.




The second cup is a pedestal, pink Lefton also hand painted. Just beautiful,  don't you think?




Have a wonderful week.  
Please feel free to post anything you would like to share, especially if it has tea cups.  Blessings,  Martha

SAYING GOOD BYE TO JANUARY WITH A CUP OF TEA!





Hi Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 295!  Hope your week as been wonderful, mine has had it's ups and downs.  Can you believe this is the last week of January?  Is it because I am older that time seems to just run out so quickly?  I am a "baby boomer" and it does not help that a lot of people that shaped my adolescence have died recently.  In some cases younger than me.  Makes me think about a lot of things.  For instance, do we ever finish our work as a Mother?  I wonder, do we want to? 







This will be the last week to share black and white tea cups, I always have more cups than time.  We have to start thinking about Valentine's Day.  I want to start with this Bavarian cup from Germany.  I believe I have always favored this cup because of the crown pedestal.  It is the only cup I have ever 
seen like it.  The rich black, white and gold leafing makes it that much more special.



The next cup is a Clarence from England.  Love the shamrock decor with the gold leafing on this cup. 


I sure hope you have been safe with this awful weather we have been having.  Los Angeles has been cool and sunny, typical winter for us.  My grandchildren are enjoying a day at Knott's Berry Farm.  They are always ready for fun.  Take care of yourself, please continue praying for my son.  Improvement is so slow.  I admit it has been hard on me. I think I am coming to the realization that I am his care giver and that makes me so sad for him.  All any of us can do is trust God with those we love so much.



Thank you for joining the party.  Please feel free to sharing something about tea or anything that just puts a smile on your face, both are good.   Looking forward to visiting. Hugs, Martha
