HONORING OUR ARMED FORCES AND SHARING TEA



TO THOSE WHO SERVE, THANK YOU!


Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 272!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I have been putting up my "Red, White & Blue" as well as spending time with my children.  Having lots of fun with my yard.  We have had a cloudy last couple of weeks so that makes the yard work even more wonderful. My SIL has been very ill so it is hard to celebrate when someone you love is so sick. Chemo is so hard.  We have family members and dear friends who served or are serving in the Armed Forces and I honor them today. 



I will be sharing blue cups this week.  I don't have a lot of blue maybe a dozen or so, but each one is beautiful.  I am starting with this Coalport.  Love the handle of this beauty.



The next cup is the demitasse size of the same pattern.  I would love to have a complete dinner set of this.





My last cup is a hand blown and hand painted demitasse from Italy.   Love the dark blue color.  



I am also sharing some the changes in the decor I have begun to make.  




Thank you so much for following this party.  I appreciate every one of you.  Looking forward to seeing what you have been up to this week.  Hugs, Martha

LOVELY CHINTZ TEAPOT AND TEA CUPS!



Hello my friends!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 271! It is Monday and I am so tired today.  I have been in the yard most of the weekend so it is a good tired.  My back yard is getting an awning added, it is looking so pretty.  A little expensive, but it will be well worth it, when the summer heat waves come.  I am a yard lady. I feel the presence of God in the garden.  My sister in law has been very ill, please keep her in your prayers.   



Went to a yard sale this weekend that was amazing.  I will share next week things I purchased. Now it is time for the tea cups.  I will be sharing pink Chintz cups today. The first one is a Royal Standard, Made in England. Love the wave design.


The next cup is a Saint George, also made in England.  This one is a trio.  



The last cup is a Royal Stafford, pattern name "June Roses."  There is something so beautiful about Chintz cups.



Looking forward to visiting you this week. Thank you for being so faithful to this Tea Party.  This party is open to all.  Please feel free to share anything tea related items.  Have a wonderful week.  Here are some of the parties I am joining this week. Hugs, Martha

TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 270!


Hello Ladies:  I do hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day!  I celebrated all weekend, ending today with a trip the Disneyland with the grandchildren.  Remember, I told you how hard it was to gift my Mother?  For the very first time since I can remember, she liked my gift.  She did not ask for the receipt, she was just happy.  Who could have guessed?  A simple coin purse by Coach would make her so happy.  I still can't believe it. 




I had a wonderful time with the Grandchildren.  I was able to spend time with all three.  Heaven on Earth for me. 





Sharing two cups this week.  The first one is from Austria.  It is very fine china and looks like it was made during the Art Deco Era.  So pretty!





The last cup is from Germany.  It looks very regal.  Love all the gold trim.  



Thank you for joining my party each week.  I love to see all of your beautiful tea cups and homes each week.   Please pray for Terri, I have not heard from her.  Hugs, Martha
