Hi Ladies: Did you remember, Tea Cup Tuesday? Sure you did! I bet you thought I forgot, not true. Terri and I have been under the weather this week, so I am very sorry for the late notice. Please pray for us both, our bodies have been misbehaving. Remember it is easy to take part, just fill out Mr. Linky in the box and it will do the rest. That is it! You can join anytime of the day you want. We promise to visit and drool!

I love this day! I can't wait to see your tea cups. In case you have not guessed it already, I have a thing for tea cups and tea pots for that matter. Here are a few of mine. I wanted to show you the Irish Belleek Shamrock set I have. It is incomplete, a yard sale find, twenty bucks! Not bad if I do say so myself. It is still March so I just had to show it to you before the month was over. Like I said it is Belleek and is so fragile, it feels like you can just squeeze it a little too tight and that is it, goodbye cup. You can see right through it too. It is very pretty. All three pieces have the 2nd black mark, so they a quite valuable, I am told.

The daisy tea cup is Aynsley and it almost looks hand painted, it has so much detail. Trimmed in gold at the bottom and the handle. The second demitasse cup and saucer are my favorite of this bunch. They are Earl of Coventry, Blind Earl. I am not sure if you can see it, but everything on the tea cup and saucer is three dimensional . It is just stunning!

Did I tell you I collect insect pins and brooches? Several years ago, I saw an article in Martha Steward's magazine about these fine little pins and just had to start my own collection. The frog and the butterflies are two of my favorites. The frog is iridescent. The butterfly pearl is real and the jade is also real. I just love beautiful things, it makes me smile just to write about them. Weird, weird, weird, I know, therapy!

Thank you so much for being a part of this party. Don't forget, I have a give away at the end of the month for the Susan Rios book. All you have to do is leave a comment and become a follower. Blessings, Martha

I love the Irish Belleek Shamrock! I had my brother keep my mom's when she passed since it was more masculine looking out of all the teapots she collected. They are such fine works of art! Being half Irish I must say I am glad you shared that! lol....I do hope you are feeling better. Take care, can't wait to see what you'll be sharing next week. ~Theresa

Hi Martha,

I loved seeing all your beautiful China and insect brooches.
The Irish Belleek Shamrock is a beautiful set, and I know how thin and pretty it is.
Sorry to hear that you have both been unwell and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Happy week.

Tara said...

I would love to see all your teacups together one day! You could set up for an enormous tea party and thrill us all with your little china beauties! I do hope you are feeling better. We do NOT like it when our Martha is feeling ill, because we know you only complain when it really hurts. Take care my friend and enjoy this beautiful Spring Day!
