TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 5!










Hi Ladies! Ok, it is Tea Cup Tuesday and time to party. My sweet friend Terri, just sent me the code for Mr. Linky. You know what to do, simply add your name to Mr. Linky and party on! There is lots of tea cups to see. Please say a pray for Terri. I know she has not been well. Please don't forget to visit her first at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/, she is the best. Get to know her, you will love her like I do.

With that said, I am still in the green mode. My first tea cup is new. I purchased this one off Ebay last week. After I saw all the Paragon tea cups you shared last week. I just had to get one. It was only $4.95 and it is a beautiful mint color. Just love the rose in the middle. I have to behave myself this week, no coveting. Isn't coveting a sin? On Holy Week no less!

The second cup is a demitasse. It is Bavaria and all hand painted. It is so dainty and pretty. It too, is mint green with little pink roses. The last demitasse cup is also Bavaria. It features three ladies in a yard setting. You know I just love things with ladies, so this one really caught my eye. These two cups I have had for years. This last one. with the ladies, is a olive green color. A favorite because of the design.

So, Ladies, I want to thank you for playing and sharing your favorite tea cups. Please tell your friends, I would love to have so many people playing that it takes two days to look at all the tea cups and read your great stories.

I will be picking a winner for the Susan Rios book this week. So comment away!

I also want to thank you for your continued prayers. My family also needs a miracle. Remember this, there has to be a death for a resurrection! Blessings to you. Martha

Hark...is that a fairy bunny I see??? I think this chick is quite smitten. Your tea cups are very charming but baby, I'm drawn to that wee little bunny. I collect bunnies too.

God bless and have the best day!!!

Imagine my surprise when I came to your blog to invite you to join a Tea on Tuesday that I participate in, and I saw this post. You have so many gorgeous tea cups, I would not know which ones I could/would pick first. ME? I'm a mug kind of gal (grin).

If time, feel free to check out our Tea on Tuesday and have a HAPPY, happy Easter, dear.

Patricia said...

I forgot to ask - Can anyone join Tea Cup Tuesday? I would like to take part.
