Hello Ladies: So sorry I am late! Hope you had a great week. Are you ready for another fun Tea Cup Tuesday Party? It is number 26! I sure am ready! I had a hard week. The personal decisions got harder and I found out I have diabetes. Now I have to poke holes in my body to test my blood every day. I am scheduled for classes later this week. The doctor heard a heart murmur so, it going to get looked at today. I am having some problems with my vision, which started this whole mess! Talk about a little stressful! Good grief, Charlie Brown! I need to get it together!
So, the first tea cup I am going to share with you is this week's favorite. It is orange and gold. I am not a orange person, but lately I have been drawn to that color. It is Noritake China, with a broken loop handle. It has a scalloped top, all very heavily gold leaf. It has a pedestal base and is just beautiful.
The second tea cup I am going to share is a Stoke & Trent! It is a very light china with a pale pink inside and a white and silver and gold out side. It is a bucket shape with a square, French handle with thumb rest. It looks like the design was hand done, with heavy gold and silver flowers. A very different kind of cup.
Cup No. three is a Royal Worchester, demitasse cup. I wish you could see it close up it is 3-D. You can feel all the leaves branches and flowers. It has a simple loop handle that is shaped in a green branch. It is just a simple Bute shaped cup. It can hold it's own with the best of them.
I know I usually show four cups, but since I am running so late, I will stop at three. Please forgive the high noon start. I just have so many things going on, I feel like my head is going bust! I just could not miss the party, however.
I know that Terri has started on time and the party is well on it's way. Thank you for stopping by. You know what to do with Mr. Linky. On the top of this post I have a picture of my give away. I will have Noah draw the name on my birthday, September 23. Please let me know if you want in! Thanks for praying for me. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha
