TEA CUP TUESDAY NO.24!


Hi Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 24! I am so glad you could join with us. I am a little over the top today, because I have so many things going on. My brain feels fried. I know if I could begin this post, by the time I am finished, I would begin to feel better. Talking about good things always clears my head. At the top of this post is a Sader Teapot. I have had this teapot forever and as you can see it is well loved. I love the cute little roses all over it.




Cup number 1 and my favorite for this week is a hand number Stanley. I love the large roses and the broken loop handle. It has a deeply scalloped, waisted, footed cup and a gold trim. The outside of the cup is a very pale pink. Just beautiful.




Cup number 2 is a Royal Albert, "Blossom Time". It features cherry trees with vivid colors. It is eight-lobed, footed cup, and has a loop handle with a thumb rest. I have the dessert dish for this set. I just forgot to get it when I photographed. Like I said, my brain is fried. It is a common cup, that many of you have. The price for this common cup is $60. It is nice that even common cups can demand a good price. If you ever see one for less, buy it. It is a good investment.




Cup number 3 is a Coalport. It is called "June time". This beautiful trio has a lovely swirled, scalloped and loop handle. The saucer also have the beautiful swirl design. The colors are very bright and look like summer to me.




Last, but not least is cup number 4. It is made by Hankook, in England. It is white and has a round, swirled scalloped cup with a simple gold loop handle. I do not believe this cup is vintage. It is beautiful just the same.

My dear friend Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/ wants to do something special next week. So please stop by and visit her blog for the details. You know what to do with Mr Linky. Very easy just, fill in the blanks!

I would appreciate your prayers for me this week. I am making life changing decisions and I want the Lord's wisdom and guidance. I am also feeling afraid about the whole thing so, please pray for this fried brain. Thank you in advance for your faithfulness to me. Have a wonderful tea time.

Thank you for all your visits on Saturday. It was a special Pink Saturday for me. I still have not visited everyone yet. I will, love to talk with friends. Blessings, Martha

Hi Martha! I especially love your first two cups and saucers. The bold roses inside the cup are beautiful. The cherry blossom cup and saucer are so pretty too.

Making life-changing decisions always fries my brain too, I will pray for you to receive wisdom and discernment from God (Who is faithful) regarding your decisions.

BettyJean @ Shabby Tea Party said...

Martha, such lovely cups, Blossom Time is my fav and remind me of the Wallace Nutting vintage prints--specifically the ones of an apple orchard in Massachusetts "Dream and Reality", "The Way Through the Orchard", etc.I've enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog. I'll be back. Please visit me at Shabby Tea Party sometime. May our Lord keep you and bless you abundantly in wisdom and healing.

A Hopeful Heart said...

First of all, Martha, know that I am praying for you, for God's leading and wisdom as you make your decisions.

All your teacups are beautiful today (as always!!), but if I had to choose a favorite it would be Blossom Time. Even if it's common, it's not one I have ever seen before your post today.

Blessings to you, my dear,
Patti

Kathy said...

Hello, as always your teacups are beautiful and you display them wonderfully with the jewelery! I will certainly pray for you - I know how it is. I hope you have time to rest -
it is never wise to make a life changing decision when emotional or tired -
just knowing you're seeing God's guidance is the best thing and His plans are always the best.
God Bless,
Kathy
