Hello Ladies: I cannot believe I have not posted in a week. I have had a full week of birthday celebrations and doctor appointments and of course, Noah. He is not feeling well this week, so I am sure my week will be filled. My refrigerator broke while I was at Disneyland. Everything had to be thrown away, because I did not open the refrigerator until the next evening. What a mess!
I promised to have Noah pick the winner of the blue portrait plate. He is always good at doing something for Grandma, especially when he gets a treat afterwards. So, the winner of the plate is Doni at http://faithgracecrafts.blogspot.com/. Doni is a beautiful, Christian lady who has an amazing blog. Every time I visit, I find it hard to leave. She is also very faithful to included me in her prayers and I will be forever grateful to her. So, if you visit her before I can email her, let know she won! I want to thank everyone for your faithfulness to my blog, especially lately when, I have not be well. I am still amazed at how, I can just email you and ask for prayer and it is done. It is like have a 24 hour prayer chain. You have blessed me more than you know!
How do you like the tea pot? I just love it. It was one of the gifts my mother gave me for my birthday! It is so pretty. I told her I really needed a new tea pot. "Like a whole in the head!" she said. My mother's heart has changed so much in recent years. She no longer buys me just the practical things, but the things you just like to look at.
Tea Cup Tuesday No. 30! Can you believe we have been at this for 30 weeks? How fun! This week I want to share cups with a message. The first one is this week's favorite. It reads "Present". It is German, in fact all of the cups I am sharing this week were made in Germany. This one is extremely ornate with a wonderful fancy handle.
Tea cup number 2 reads "Forget Me Not" It has a yellow and pink flower on each side of the writing, with a wonderful branch shape handle. All four cups have the same coffee can shape.
Cup number 3 is a moustache cup, the reads "Father". It is a large cup with a loop handle.
Last, but not least is the pink "Father" cup. I had the matching "Mother" cup, but I killed it getting to the "Father" cup. I am sure another one will find it's way to my house. This cup is the largest of the four. It has a very large loop handle with a thumb rest! It always amazes me, when I find pink cups made for men. They must not have had the same hang ups we have today.
Anyway, that is this weeks group. Hope you enjoyed them. You know what to do with Mr. Linky! I did start to make wreaths for the fall, top picture, so I have done a little bit of something useful. I have just been told I have been featured on http://homefurnituredepot.net/blog_awards/index.php?id=29191. It is a Home blogs of other blogs, anyway take a peek! Take care of yourselves. May God richly bless you this week. Martha
