TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 28!


Hello Ladies: Happy Tea Cup Tuesday to everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week. My was a mixed week, with some wonderful times with my children and grandchildren. I also had so very hard times with doctors and personal issues. I must say as I reflect on the week. I am able to see the Lord's Hand in it all. I want to thank everyone that has continued to pray for me. I sound like a broken record. Regardless, I am grateful for my blog friends. I wish their was a way to meet face to face with each other and tell you how special you are to me. Maybe one day, God will make a way for us.




So much for me, let's get to the fun stuff! Tea Cup Tuesday No. 28! Can you believe that? We are some serious woman to keep this up that long! My first tea cup I would like to share is Aynsley tea cup. The cup is Corset-shaped with a coiled handle. I love how the leaves and stems come together to form a daisy bouquet. This is my favorite cup for this week.

The next cup, is a demitassi cup made in Germany. It is a beautiful pedestal cup with a Athens shape and a question mark handle. The gold is very heavy on this cup. It is just beautiful.





Cup number 3 is a trio, that looks like the previous cup grew up. However, this ornate cup with made in Japan. The gold detail is incrediable on this cup. It has a simple round cup with a loop handle.





The last cup is made in England, with a beautiful cream and green print. It is an Enoch Wedgwood cup. It is a waisted ribbed cup with a loop handle. It is just a wonderful cup to hold and use, with an Ironstone body




Your ladies are pros at Mr. Linky. Please don't forget to visit my dear friend Terri. Her sight is always worth visiting http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. Always filled with eye candy and sweet thoughts.



The tea pot and creamer are new to me. I purchased them at a thrift store for $6.99. It is a Royal Vienna. Very ornate design with a lusterware finish.

Well, that is it from my side of town. Hope you are all have a wonderful week filled with God's blessing. Remember you are loved! Martha

Oh, Dear Martha! Miss you so much. Love your cups with the gold...so elegante! I would feel like a queen sipping out of either of those cups!

How are you doing, Martha? I hope you are feeling much, much better. That diabetes stinks but it's treatable. Thanks be to God.

Take care, Martha. Susan

So many lovely cups but I think the second one, the demitassi cup, is my favorite tonight, it just has such regal quality about it.

I am so excited to be sharing with you for the first time this week also.

Thnx for hosting Kelsie

Hello Martha!
My heart and prayers go out to you for things to get better real soon! I'm so sorry to hear that there are troubles :-(
I must say that I am green with envy over this weeks selection of teacups! In a good way of course ;-) The one with the daisies is my favorite as is the darling froggie pin! I love it! Maybe you should start a vintage jewelry day!
Take good care Martha and God Bless!
Hugs and Smiles,
Lynn

Cup # 2 and cup # 3 are absolutely stunning! They would look very good together on the tea table too. What is the process of putting that much gold on a cup? Does this make them much more expensive?

I am praying for you and look forward to updates Martha, thank-you for hosting Teacup Tuesday.

The Real Me! said...

Oh my goodness! Those teacups are exquisite! Soooo beautiful. I would have a hard time picking which one I would want to use for tea!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Martha,
Green is my favorite color, so I love your cups! I do hope you start feeling better soon and that your troubles lessen.

Terri said...

Hello dear Martha!
((( hugs )))
I am pretending I am actually meeting you at you door, about to come in for tea.
Oh, I see it is a green tea day! Lovely. Look at your beautiful china and jewelry. So well paired!
I love each cup. I think my favorite of the day is the German demitasse. So beautiful with all it's gold trim and it's Athens shape.
Now, lets pour some tea and have a good chat.
(at least I wish we could!).
More ((( hugs ))),
Terri

here to stay, this is my fourth contribution and i look forward to it so much. i have also found some really beautiful blogs by sharing.

A Hopeful Heart said...

I love all your green today, Martha. next to pink, green is my favorite color. Like you, I think the first one is my favorite. And I love the little green frog you have photographed with it. Not only do you have a beautiful teacup collection, but your collection of jewelry is lovely as well. I went through several years of not wearing much jewelry...now I have turned a corner and like jewelry again...I'm wishing I hadn't stupidly given so much of it to the thrift store.

With love and prayers,
Patti

Aloha Martha;
As always your teacup presentation is absolutely beautiful! You pair the teacups with the perfect piece of jewel, I just love it.
I've been off line for a while, lot's going on, hit a slump, now, just getting over a nasty cold. But I have posted (3), this month so, I would like to invite you to check it out, I have a book give-away, (anniversary blog month).
I've just gone through your posts and noticed the lovely keychains. Where can I buy one?
By the way, you dear friend are in my prayers. God is in each and everyone of us and when we have a conversation with the Great One, things just seem to lighten up.
