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:

PS - Hope the music was fun!

Too hard to pick a favorite this week. I love angels. I think you had at least one taking care of you last week, besides the cute paramedic (wink).
Be patient as you heal.
Blessings, Pam

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Martha, you sweet thing! See how much you're loved? People like Marie send you presents in the mail just because! I love all your lovely teacups and they are so pretty each one that it's hard to pick a favourite. I'm so glad you're feeling better, and you are so thoughtful to ask for prayer on my behalf too!

BECKY said...

Hi Martha! My goodness, I miss a day or so of blog posts, and so much is happening! You and I have a lot in common....on the "unfortunate" side of things! I, too, am a "faller"! I'm kind of clumsy and bump into things fairly often, and have also taken some falls...but NEVER as serious as yours! I hope you are aaallll better soon! AND, I too, rode in an ambulance once, due to a migraine! Another thing that's not too fun to have in common with someone! :o
Love your teacups...Will try to participate today!

Denise@alloverroses said...

Oh Martha so glad you are feeling better. Shame on you for getting on your table! Everything in life is a lesson isn't it? I do dumb things all the time and pay for it later. What a sweet sweet lady to send you such a beautiful gift. Your second cup is gorgeous. I love cherubs! Enjoyed the music too! Your posts are always wonderful!

Moments of Grace said...

Dearest Martha,
How kind of you to post photos of the little teacup. It just seemed to have your name on it when I looked at it and I wanted you to feel the blessings of the Lord.
And, oh, the angel cup is soooo lovely. I could hardly believe it was handpainted. You do, indeed, have a beautiful collection.
God be with you today, my friend, and send great blessings to you.

In Grace,
Marie

Appleshoe said...

Hello Martha- You have such an amazing collection, each one is so unique. I love your Aynsley teacup; Aynsley is among my favorites. Your angel cup is darling with its matching spoon. I'm sorry to hear you were injured but got a smile out of your song choice "Go Ask Alice". On bad days when my Ehlers is acting up I often listen to this song as well. Take care.

parTea lady said...

That was a lovely and thoughtful gift from Marie. Your teacups today are beautiful. I really like the angel cup with the matching spoon. Seeing all the pretty jewelry was great too.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Thank you for inviting me to your Tea Cup Tuesday! I have posted my yellow depression glass tea table.

You have the most beautiful collection of tea time things! I really like the little angel tea cup and saucer!

Dearest sweet lady Martha,

I especially love the angel teacup and saucer!

I hope you are feeling better my dear!~ Take care and I will gladly pray for our dear friends in need!~ (I have been feeling run down, much like last summer, so your prayers would be much appreciated as well Martha)!

You are truly blessed with wonderful blogging friends. How sweet of Marie to send you this beautiful cup. Of course, my favorite is the square one with the ornate handle and matching spoon. Love the detail on it. Happy Tea Cup Tuesday to you, dear friend.

Bella said...

Hi Martha ~ I am glad you are feeling a little better. Tylenol with codeine is good stuff. LOL I just LOVE the tea cups with the jewels - beautiful! At your suggestion, I am joining you for the first time. I will keep everyone in my prayers.

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Hi Martha,

Hope you are doing better sweetie! I love the picture on that tea book!!! I was wondering if you could please tell me what the book is about. I would like to purchase one. The angelic tea cup is beautiful. I have never seen anything like that. thanks for sharing your pretties today!

A Hopeful Heart said...

What a gracious and generous friend to send you such a lovely gift. I think no-reason gifts are the nicest kind.

I love the cherub teacup. I don't have any square teacups and saucers; in fact, I haven't even seen all that many. It's very pretty and unique.

Glad you're feeling better. Again, thanks for being such a warm and gracious hostess.

Blessings,
Patti

bj said...

Thanks so much for the invitation to join you on Tea Cup Tuesday. The reason I've not joined you before is that I thought I had to show only tea cups each time. As i only have ONE REAL teacup, I didn't feel I could join you.

Your cups are just beautiful...especially love the angel one.

Jacoba said...

Dear Martha,
My goodness!, how unfortunate you have been and in such agony with your headache and the remaining pain of your fall. I most certainly will pray for you and the friends you listed, may you all be in good shape again soon!
The reverse side of your story is that I just love your humourous style of writing and describing things.
Your cups are wonderful and I am learning a lot here on china (and the rest). I never knew what a 'demitasse' was, although I understand the word as such.
I do not know which one to choose as my favourite: the angel with the spoon is extraordinary, the coffee cup is also so nice, but I am attracted to the lovely floral pattern just the same.
How wonderful to have a such a collection!
Have a nice day and do look after yourself.
Jacoba

BECKY said...

Hi Martha! I'm checking back on my blog buddies today, now that I can concentrate a little better. My son, Scott, is safely back home!! Yay! Just wanted to say I love your play list. I love seeing what kinds of music others enjoy. I have about 8 different play lists and change them around, according to my mood. You have a lot of the same ones as I do, on a couple of mine! Have a wonderful July 1st!

Sares said...

Always such beautiful tea cups. I hope you're doing better sweetie after your fall. It sounded like you took quite a hit. Have a Happy 4th of July and give Noah extra kisses!
