Hello my tea cup loving friends! I am hoping everything is well with you. I wrote this whole long post for you today and deleted all by mistake. Oh well, maybe I was just too windy and saved you all. This is our last Tea Cup post for November. Next Tuesday we will be all about Christmas. I am going to show you some Teapots you have not seen, before they get put away. It is a little sad for me to put all these beauties away until next year. What will next year bring for us? What will change? How will I change? I am kind of glad this year is almost gone, it was not the best I ever had. I was depressed until September. I am grateful, for the joy He has now given me. I am so grateful that you ladies hung in there with me. Why you did, I will never know, but thank you for your faithfulness!

This post will only have one tea cup for me to share. It is this tea cup trio by Royal Kent, Staffordshire, England. I love the beautiful fall colors.

The next picture is of two California Pottery Teapots. Have I every told you I collect pottery? Well, I do love the look of vintage pottery. I have quite a large collection. Surprised? Let's not talk about it!

I am including a couple of pictures of vintage yellow ware. The first bowl is Watts wear and was in our home all though my childhood. My mother gave it to me a few years back. I just love it, because it reminds me of my Mom. The second one I forgot to look at the name before I put it up, sorry. I know they have nothing to do with tea cups, (sorry Terri) but I just wanted to share a couple of bowls from my collection.

Last, but not least is a Sadler Teapot. This teapot was given to me by my Mother-in-law, Twila. I have told you about her before. She was the best. Everything will all get put away until next year, when we celebrate God's blessings again on Thanksgiving. Next year, I will unwrap all the beautiful tea cups I have shown you the past month and be so surprised by their beauty all over again. That is the good thing about getting older. Everything is "new every morning".

You know what to do with Mr. Linky. Please don't forget to visit Terri, I am sure she has some amazing things to share with us.

The top picture is a tea towel holder I had up for a while. It too is saying goodbye! This Thanksgiving, know that I thank God for you, always. Martha

Aloha Martha;
Your teacups, bling and teapots are always eye-candy for me. And even though I only participate in showing my teacups once, I still stopped to visit you to see how you displayed your collection; of course always so beautifully. I'll be waiting in anticipation to see what you'll surprise us with next week with Christmas.
Hugs to you Martha.

Hello Martha! I can't imagine putting some away! But, I guess it would be like spring when the flowers begin to bud and to bloom - rediscovery!
You have an amazing collection - and I love pottery too!
So glad you're experiencing joy too! This has been a difficult year for me too - but, my faith in God has brought me through - we are transformed by the testing of the fires in our lives,
God Bless,

Tete said...

Martha- love all your teapots and pretties. Your collection is amazing.
Yeah Lord, return to me the joy of my salvation.
Glad you are in the sunshine again and that you know the blessings of your family and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours- Tete
