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:

Teatime Tuesday - Tuesday Cuppa Tea - Friends Sharing Tea - Share Your Cup Thursday - Inspire Me Monday- No Place Like Home - Share Your Cup Thursday at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olsen - The Charm of a Home - Tea in Texas - Thelma's Days - Bella's Rosas Antiques - Friends Sharing Tea at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog

DEPRESSION TEA CUPS FOR THE PARTY!


Hi Ladies!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 316!  Hope you have all had a great week and have managed to stay cool in this hot weather.  My mother is still sick, I would appreciate your continued prayers.  Not sure about pictures today, my son up dated the program and of course, I am having trouble learning all the new stuff.  This post just might be very short because of it.


I want to share some depression glass cups.  I have always loved depression glass, unfortunately I don't own a lot.  I will start with this common peach color cup.  It is a pebble design.


This next cup is Blue Bubble, it is part of a service for 20.   Always have love this set!  I recently gifted it to my nephew who holds large parties at his home regularly.


Everyone has at least one green cup, it seems that this is one that is easily available.  I have a few of these because they are perfect at Christmas time.

This is a lovely yellow color.  I have other colors, but I have been at this over 3 hours.  My back has had enough.  I really have to learn this new program.  Here are some of the parties I am joining.  Please feel free to post anything lovely.  I love to look!  Hugs, Martha

HAPPY TEA CUP TUESDAY!


Hello Ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 315!  Have you notice Terri has been joining us these last few weeks?  This tea party started as Martha and Terri's Tea Cup Tuesday and I am so happy to have her back when she can.  She is such a dear lady. I love her so.


I live near the Sand Fire, that has been in the news. so things have been "hot, cloudy, with chances of a lot of ash."   It looks like it is snowing ash at my house. We are far enough away that we are not threaten, but close friends have.  Please say a little prayer for us.  The temperatures have been in the high 90's, just awful for the fire fighters.  My mother has also been very sick.  I hate to see my Mama sick. She looks so little and fragile.  Please keep her in your prayers.  



The cups I am sharing today are first this Castletown, USA.  I own the complete set with the Teapot.  Very sweet cup!





The next cup is this all gold, Bavarian from Germany.  It is so elegant.



Do hope you are all doing well.  Trying to stay cool during this very hot summer.  Here are the parties I will be joining this week:
