GIVE AWAY AND PRETTY IN PINK TEA CUPS!


Hello Ladies!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 267! Hope you had a wonderful week. The weather across the country has been awful and I am so sorry.  We had a couple of Earthquakes and still no rain. We might get some sprinkles at the end of the week, we hope!  I continue to feel good, for that I am so grateful to God.  I am back to trying to downsize my endless decorations.  I try to do a little every day so I won't get over whelmed.  God has been very good to me.  I have a large storage unit and my goal is to eliminate that and no longer need to have one.  (Please note, I am not a hoarder.  I just have those tendencies!)   I really have to focus, to get everything done, I get so distracted.    As I get older I have realized just how distracted I can become.  It is not pretty!



I am going to continue to share more pink tea cups this week. I think I could share pink all year long and not finish showing you all of them, (that is how bad I am!) Ok, change subject.  Here is the first cup I am sharing.  It is a vintage Lefton.  I must admit, Lefton is quickly becoming one of my top three favorites to collect. (No, change that, I have stopped collecting, now I remember.)  Who can blame me?  This cup is stunning!



My second cup is a Shelley.  How can you not love Shelley's?  Even the very simply designs are amazing! Look at the ruffles on this one.



The last cup for today is also a Lefton.  It is perfect. 



I have been feeling so well, I even had the Grandchildren this weekend.  Life is good! 


Thank you for your faithful following of this blog.  Please continue to pray for Terri and her son.  They are not doing well.  Here is hoping the link works.  I miss Terri, she alway did them for me. Still having a give-away, it is the first cup on the post. Please check last week's post for details. 

 Hugs, Martha

GIVE AWAY AND PINK ROSES!




Hi Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 266! Hope you had a wonderful week. My was on the quiet side, and I felt good.  It has been months since I have felt normal.  I don't know what happened to me, but I am better, Praise the Lord!  You don't realize how sick you have been until you start to feel better.  I was even up to watching Sophia this week, which always makes my heart smile.



I am getting ready for a large church event where I will teach ladies how to make cookie boxes, should be fun.  Sandi will not be having her tea party this week, due to a death in her family.  Please keep her in your prayers. 


I will be sharing pink tea cups this week.  I am going to try and share some you may not have ever seen.  My first cup is this amazing Royal Chelsea.  Love all the gold leaves on this tea cup.  It almost looks like a Aynsley. 




My next cup is a Foley from England.  I love drinking tea and having those roses to look at. 




This next one is called "American Rose" by Royal Albert.   How can anything beat a pink rose?



As promised I have a "Give Away" this month, it is this unsigned, vintage, demitasse cup.  I will be adding a treasure or two each week until the give away, May 4th!  All you have to do is be a regular follower of this blog.  You will get an extra chance at winning for following me on my Pretty Vintage Things Facebook and every time you comment.  Just let me know what you have done.  Good luck!  


Thank you for always being such faithful followers of this little blog.  Have a wonderful week.     Here is this week's link.   Hugs, Martha

SAYING GOOD BYE TO EASTER!





Hello dear friends and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 266!  Hope you had a wonderful Easter with your loved ones.  Our weekend was full and mine, near perfect except for one thing, my Sciatica was out.  Most of the week I had to use a walker to move, but today things seem to be better.  I do hope you will forgive a short post today.  Sitting can present a problem for me and don't want to irritate something that has finally begun to heal. 




I am sharing a Franz Teapot and Tea Cup today.  It is an amazing piece.  The china is very fine. I owned the spoon to this set as well, but broke it while hand drying it.   Oh, it hurt!  Tried to replace spoon however,  the cost was $45.00.  So, I said to myself, "Self, you have lots of other spoons."   I did not pay that for the entire set!




I am going to try to get my act together for another give away, next week.  Keep an eye out for it.  Hope you are having a wonderful week.   Here a few pictures of "fake smiles for the camera."  The Grandchildren were just too busy to take a picture.  They had so much fun.  Since Grandma was in her "happy place" they decided to do the egg coloring on my antique oak table.  Thank God for pain killers. Look forward to visiting you!  Hugs, Martha
