OVER THE MOON ABOUT THESE CUPS!
Hello Tea Cup Lovers! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 32. I am so glad we are getting new people to join us very week. When Terri and I started this party we were not even sure any one would come to play. Now look at you! Party animals, that is what you are. I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. My painter is here for my "Pink" craft room so I am so excited. I also want to thank everyone for your encouraging comments about my new store web site. I hope it will be ready for November!
This week I am excited to show you some awesome tea cups! (I know, I am weird. I get excited about tea cups.) These beauties are so stunning! Most have been stored in the basement, just waiting for fall to come around. It feels like they are brand new, because I have not seem them in so long. (I am weird!)
My first is this orange and gold beauty by Noritake. It has this stunning ruffled edge that looks like lace. I may have showed this to you at the beginning of the year when I first found it at an estate sale. It is worth looking at again. It is my favorite cup this week, although, this is a tough week for me to choose, because I really love them all. The shape is Adelaide shape and the handle has a coiled loop. The colors are vivid. It takes my breathe away.
Cup number two is also a favorite of mine. It is a trio by Nippon. It has a hand painted gold, Moriage Porcelain Jeweled design that is outstanding. With a simple round cup shape and a loop handle. The pictures do not do it justice. These cups fetch a pretty sum with collectors. I have had it forever. I can't even remember where I purchased them, only that I brought 3. I only have one left the others have been given to precious friends.
Cup number three is a Haviland, Limoges trio called "Autumn Leaf". This is the only cup I own with a ring handle. You do not see them to often. This set is perfect to display now. I would love to see any ring handle cups you may have.
The last cup is a vintage Coalport. I love the flowers on the inside of the cup. It also has a lace like rim. A wonderful cup to use in the fall. It is fun to put out some of the vintage jewelry I own. I tend to have favorites and use them a lot. I am trying to show you others I collect.
Here is this week's Mr. Linky. You know what to do. Please try to visit as many ladies as you can, you will not be disappointed. Some cups with just make you drool. Say hi to Terri, when you stop by her post at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. Last week her cup was just amazing!
I have also included more decorations around the house. Did I ever tell you I collect pumpkin decorations? I am not big on witches and demons for Halloween, I prefer pumpkins. Have a wonderful week. Hugs and blessings! Martha
