TEA CUP TUESDAY NO.17!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to another Tea Cup Tuesday. This is number 18! How time flies when we are having fun. Before I start, I want to thank everyone for your kind words, scolding's, and threats! It worked, I learned my lesson. No more dancing on tables for me. Seriously, I am so grateful for you. The "Mother" in all of you came out. It was so cute. I felt so loved. (You love me even when I act dumb!) God is good! I am feeling better. I can walk without too much pain. That is a good thing. Of course, everything feels great on muscle relaxers and Tylenol with codeine! I have been feeling groovy! I stopped the codeine today. It feels like I can stand it. Tomorrow, I think I will try to get of the relaxers. Thank you for all your prayers!
On Saturday afternoon, I received a package from Marie of http://amomentingrace.blogspot.com/. If you get a chance visit her blog. You will not be disappointed. She is the sweetest lady you can get to know. She sent me a package, for no reason at all. Can you believe that? The first picture shows the great books and the hankies and the spoon and of course the demitasse cup. She put a pink rose candle in the middle of it.
I was so happy to get it, her kindness made me cry. The cup is yellow with a pretty rose print. It is my favorite cup for this week and forever it will remind me of Marie! Thank you Marie! You are the best!
The next cup I would like to share is this angel cup. It is white with a square bottom and a square saucer with a hand painted, matching spoon. It has an ornate, broken loop handle. It is a new cup only about 15 years old. It was hand painted Lois White. This cup was a gift from the ladies at my church. The heart shape pin was one that was made by my sister, Nora for me. It is all vintage.
Cup number 3 is a Belleek, Limpet shape, yellow, tinted cup and saucer. It is a demitasse as well. Very delicate and fragile, what you would expect from a Belleek.
My last cup is not a tea cup at all but a coffee cup. Did I ever tell you I collect Fritz and Floyd? Well, I do. Most of my collection is Christmas stuff. I have a few FF, amazing teapots I will show you around Christmas time. This cup has a fairy shaped handle. It is white porcelain, very cute. I just like how it looks. The cups are all very different than what I usually show you. I hope you do not mind the change. I will be back to my China cups next week.
You know what to do, to join the party, just fill in "Mr Linky". Join early or late just join! Don't forget I still have that give away at the end of the month. Noah is going to pick a name. Tea Cup post number #16 will tell you what you have to do to win the tea cup trio!
I also have a few prayer requests:
