TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 7!










Hello Ladies: It is once again Tea Cup Tuesday, yeah! I love looking at all your cups. I think so far the ones I could like to collect the most are, the Shelley Cups. I am going to keep an eye out for them. However, each week you surprise me with new beauties! I can't wait to see what you are going to do this week.

As for me, I will be sharing 4 different cups. The first is an all gold cup, Bavaria, Germany. Everything is gold, including the saucer. I have had it for a long time, so who knows where it came from, but I think it is so pretty. The next one is a Castleton China, called "Sunnyvale". It is a demitasse and has a pedestal bottom. I have quite a few of the Castleton China cups, each one is so different and pretty. You will get to see them all soon. The next one is a bowl cup, by my favorite marker, Haviland Limoges, France. It is so beautiful, with small dainty roses. I forgot how much I liked this one. (I know, they are just cups! Get a clue, Martha!) Sharing tea cups makes me want to go to Ebay, if you know what I mean. The last cup is a Lefton, hand painted pedestal cup in pale yellow. It is also one of my favorites. I said that already didn't I? The roses are stunning on this cup. Cups are my favorites collectible!! What is that old saying? " I never met a cup I didn't like! LOL! Therapy, I know! They are so fun to look at! Don't forget to visit Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. Terri is the brains of this outfit!




All you have to do to play, is fill in the box and Mr. Linky does the rest! Thank you so much for joining the fun!

Once again, I want to add my list of prayer requests. Please let me know, if you need to be added to the list.

I love tea cups too, they make me feel like such a lady. When I was a little girl I had a real hard time going to school and leaving my mom everyday so when I got home we would have tea with the good china to give me something to look forward to during class. Such good memories. I would love for you to check out my blog if you get a chance. God bless!

Martha~What a wonderful teacup collection. Each uniquely beautiful. The gold cup style was one I've never seen before...very regal.
What caught my eye was the added sparkle of the vintage brooches paired with each tea cup were stunning. I would love to see that collection too.
I hope you can stroll by for a visit, your company will be nice.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Martha, thank you for stopping by HFTS. Welcome as a new follower! Now I've found you too. I seem to have more teapots than teacups here, but love seeing the ones you have to share. The Limoges soup is my favorite. Love those delicate handles and the beautiful gold garland detail. Your photos are lovely. I'll be back often

Great photos and blog! I love your teacups. You have a beautiful collection. I have a few and just may have to join in one of these days. I love pink as well, but must say lavender/purple has always been my favorite. By the way, I designed your ivory plate stand when I worked as a product designer - excited to see it used in such an elegant way! Connie

Jillian said...

Identity theft is horrible, it happened to me and it took years to straighten out. I hope you are able to get this taken care of quickly. On a much lighter note your tea cups are so beautiful! I hope you a great week!
