TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 319!


Hello Ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 319!  What a very bad week in the news for us.  I do hope you are all safe.  In Los Angeles, the Santa Ana winds are in full gear, which means fire danger is extremely high, always worrisome for me. I did find out what is wrong with my back, Spinal Stenosis.  I have both the Cerebral and Lumbar types.  There is now a plan to give me some relief, yeah! So what I plan to do, ladies,  is continue with the party each week and when I can't, you will know why.  Just wait for me, please, thanks.


I am joining the Enchanted Rose, tea cup exchange.  I am so excited about that. I have only been in one exchange, years ago put on my our friend Terri.  It was a blast! 


This first cup I am sharing is this antique Limoges, demitasse.  It is this very pale peach color on cream.  I have a set of 4 different colors,  They are almost wafer thin.  





Then you are a tea cup collector, it is hard to pick favorites.  I try only to purchase those I really love.   This next tea cup is an all time favorite of mine.  It is an Aynsley of course,  these pictures do not  do it justice. 





Busy week for me, working on Sophia's Tea Party and Halloween Costumes for all the grandchildren and a few of the adults as well.  Here is hoping we get cooler weather.  Have a wonderful week.  Here are the parties I am joining this week.  Hugs, Martha

I AM BACK!





Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 318!   I bet you have been wondering where I have been? Well, here is the story.  It has been difficult for me to sit for a long time on the computer due to back pain.  Not really sure what is going on with it, but hope to find out next week.  I am so sorry for not getting back to you earlier.  I have considered no longer hosting the Tea Party, except for the fact that I would miss so many of you. Just not sure what to do to be fair to you.  Open to suggestions.   




Just can't believe we are now decorating for Autumn. I must admit, the summer weather is never one of my favorite things. I hate the heat.  Being in a drought area, it is so much harder to enjoy the outside.  I have begun my indoor decorating.  I will be sharing some Autumn tea cups for your viewing pleasure :)!  This one is a Royal Albert.



This next cup is one whose signature I do not recognize.  It is all hand painted and very light weight china.  


I will be having a Tea Birthday Party for Sophia in a couple of weeks.  She wanted to used real tea cups so I have chosen 12 pink rose design, demitasse cups, like the one above.   I was not sure that I had 12 cups in pink rose, but I realize that I had a few more than I needed.  I will make sure I take lots of pictures for you. 
Both my little ones are playing baseball this season.  Noah is a Catcher and Sophia is in Tee Ball. Please pray for Terri, she is so very ill, as is my husband.  Terri did want me to tell you she would be back! Looking forward to visiting as many as I can this week.  Thank you for your friendships and notes to check on me.  You can see why I just can't leave this party.  Here are other parties I will be joining:

ENDING SUMMER WITH SOME TEA CUPS!



Hello Ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 317.   Sorry about last week, my grandchildren spent the night and decided to make all kinds of forts and sleeping areas around the bed. To make a long story short, I went sailing across the room, right into my desk.  I didn't poke my eye out because, well,  I must be learning to fall.  (Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?)  It would have been very funny, if I was able to move.  See that pretty face in the picture? That's Sophia, she starts school tomorrow.  I am very proud but a little sad at the same time.  Where does the time go?  All three of them start school this week, summer is officially over. They are excited about there new adventure.  





I am sharing this pretty "English Chintz," Queen China tea cup today.  I always have had a soft spot for Chintz.  Don't you just love the porcelain brooch?  It is a favorite as well. 








This next cup is an RS Prussia.  You can't see it in the pictures, but it has a pearl like finish.  It is so very pretty in person.  The pictures do not do it justice.  



Thank you for your faithfulness to this little blog.  Please feel free to share anything pretty you want us to see.  I would also like you to included our friend Terri in your prayers.  She has been having a rough time physically.    Here are some of the parties I will be joining this week:
