HAPPY TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 9!
Hello Ladies! Happy Tea Cup Tuesday. This is number 9! Before I share my tea cup stories, I want to give you an update on the continuing saga of my life. Today, I receive a call from the police department in Florida, who had arrested someone who had one of my stolen checks. Good you say! No not good, this woman received my check as part of a secret shopper program. She thought she was being paid for reviewing the bank's teller. So now she has to defend herself from charges of stealing, when she did nothing, but maybe act a little unwisely.
In the mean time, I have found out that this is happening from China! So, how did China get my information? Only God knows. Now, the icing on the cake, they just got into my new account today, the one that is only days old. I just do not know what to do. I would join "Life Lock" but I have to wait until I have a safe account to pay them with! God help me!
Now that I have that off my chest, back to Tea Cup Tuesday. Normal things, nice things, things that don't make me want to cry, kind of things. The four tea cups I want to share with you this week are all pink. The first one is a very old demitasse cup. My husband brought this for me years ago. I bet he doesn't even remember. I will have to remember to ask him. I just love the faded flowers, it shows this cup was used and loved. The second one is part of my everyday dishes. It is a Mikassa, and it called "April Rose". All the dishes, as well, as the cups have this beautiful raised design on them. I love the single pink rose. The next cup for your viewing pleasure is from my favorite company, Haviland Limoges, France. It is of course a soup cup, but when I have had teas and need extra cups, I will include this one and always get a great response because of it's beauty. The shape of the cup is very different too, like a clover. The design on the cup is raised at the flowers, just stunning! Last but not least, is the pedestal cup. It looks like a more expensive English cup, but it is not. It is Royal Sealy China, from Japan. I love that the inside of the cup is fully decorated and that the saucer is open cut. I think it is just so dainty, don't you?
Well, I feel better, just talking to you about my cups. Thank you for letting me blow off some steam here today. Just remember to fill in Mr. Linky and you all set. I would appreciate, you putting our button on your blog. We had 26 people last week, I am hoping more people will see it and join. It is so much fun looking at your beauties.
Don't forget to visit my friend Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. Her cup is amazing as always! Please say a little prayer for me, that I will stay sane! Happy Tea Cup Tuesday and blessings, Martha
