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
