Hello Tea Cup Ladies! Welcome to our 31st Tea Cup Tuesday. It is almost mid-night and all I could think about is Tea Cup Tuesday! ( I have not posted yet!) I just came home from a wonderful, Broadway Musical. The stars of various musicals like Rent, Wicked, Evita and Guys and Dolls, sang these wonderful Broadway songs to raise money for cancer. I was hobnobbing with the stars, well kind of, we were under the same roof. Did I ever tell you, I love musicals? So I was in heaven! It ended with one of my favorite songs, "Seasons of Love" from Rent.
So here I am trying to get my act together for Tea Cup Tuesday. Have you noticed how many different tea cups are out there? We had some new ladies join us last week, with some amazing cups. It never fails I am always repenting of coveting after visiting your posts.
I discovered this week that I have a great deal of autumn and Halloween things. As I was removing the bins from the basement, they seem endless. It did make me feel better when Saturday, at the church rummage sale, I left the house with 8 bins fill of things to sell and only came back with one. I am always checking myself, for the Hoarder problem. I gave myself some serious points for the clean out. However, as I am opening the bins for Halloween, I noticed so many cute things, I struggle to think I need to thin some of these things out. I haven't even been to one holiday boutique yet! You know how those can gets to you!
The good news is I had stored some autumn tea cups. Today you will see some of the cups that have been stored away for just this time. The first cup I and sharing with you is this orange Lusterware from Japan. This beautiful trio only comes out in October. It has a white Luster inside with a simple loop handle.
Cup No. 2 is also a Lusterware, but this time it is Haviland, Limoges. An antique, demitasse cup, with dainty yellow roses inside.
Cup No. 3 is this week's favorite! It is a Paragon, the shape is a Glasgow, with a great broken loop handle and thumb rest.
You know what to do with Mr. Linky!
I hope the you will take the time to visit as many ladies as you can this Tea Cup Tuesday. Be sure to visit my partner in this party Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. Terri is an amazing woman, with so much talent and the biggest heart.
I have added a few pictures of my Halloween decorations. Enjoy your week. Blessings to you all. Martha
