MORE TEA CUP TREASURES!
Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 33! It is time again to share those tea cups. I have read that some of you are taking them out of storage just to join us, others are buying some to play. Tea Cup Tuesday is just of wonderful time with friends. I have made the best of friends through this party. Who would have thought God could use tea cups to minister to one another? I have to say, some of my dearest friends are ladies I have meant through blogging! So take time to visit one another, you never know when you will find a best friend.
I have spent the weekend, putting things away in my "pink" craft room. I love how it is coming along. I will show you more pictures on Friday. Right know, on to the tea cups!
The first cup today is a Paragon. They are famous for the beautiful center design. This one is a lovely mint green with a broken loop handle and a thumb rest. It has a beautiful Adelaide shape. This cup is this week's favorite!
Cup number 2 is a vintage Coalport. It was made somewhere between 1891 and 1920. It is a bouillon cup in the Indian Tree pattern. It too is a Adelaide shape with a broken loop handle and thumb rest.
My last cup this week is made by Syracuse China in New York. This cup was made in 1944. The colors real fit that era. The cup style is Chelsea shape with a broken loop handle. For some reason, it reminds me of my Grandma, not sure way.
On the very top is a pair of Bavarian tea pots recently purchased at the thrift store for $6.00. I really scored that day. I even found two Weiss, vintage necklace for $4.00. I love it when that happens. I get all excited and can't wait to look at my treasures at home.
Not sure if Terri is going to post this week, she is in England. It is a tuff life, but someone has to live it! Hope you are having a great time, Terri! I know this is a short post for me, but I have to finish my craft room. You know what to do with Mr. Linky. Remember you are special to the Lord and to me! Blessings, Martha
