TEA CUPS AND A BUG STORY!
Hello Ladies! Happy Tea Cup Tuesday No. 36. I have to tell you something funny that happened. Remember when I asked for prayer for Noah, a few weeks back? Well, everything started with an upset stomach. I remember telling a friend, when Noah was nearby that, he has a little bug in his stomach and that he would feel better soon. We have just figured out, almost a month later, Noah thinks he has a real bug in his stomach. His poor Mom and Dad tonight have to figure out a way to get the "bug" out tonight, so he will no longer be upset. You see, he thinks about it ever so often and he begins to feel sick. Wouldn't you, if you thought you had a real bug in your stomach? I feel so bad for what I have done to my poor grandson. Did I learn my lesson today. Please pray that he will forget about it. Poor little guy, it must be awful. But, at least we have finally figured it out!
As I have I been thinking about this week's post, I was smiling because I am surprised at how many tea cups I own. That is pretty bad, I put them away at the end of the month and forget about them until next year. I have been taking bins out from my basement marked "Thanksgiving Decorations" and I have found so many fun November decorations. It is crazy, isn't it? I don't remember what I own, unless it is right in front of my face. I am going to have to do some serious selling on Ebay! I feel like the turkey who said "Have Mercy!"
I am still finding tea cups! It is like going shopping without spending money. I must admit, it is a lot of fun! I am moving on before I talk myself into therapy, again. This first tea cup is so beautiful. It is a hand painted cup that was Made in Japan. I have another one that is similar to this one, but this one is the best! It is a pedestal cup, all gold on the out side with the stunning roses, hand painted on the inside. It has a broken "D" shape handle and the saucer is also hand painted. This week's favorite for sure!
Cup Number 2 is a Royal Minster cup. It is a mixed swirled cup with a scalloped top. It has beautiful burgundy colored fruit. A very fun find. It just says Thanksgiving all over it!
Cup number 3 is a white demitasse cup from Denmark. It is very similar to the one I showed you last week. This one has a very different design at the bottom of the cup and the saucer. It too is marked hand painted. Notice the handle how dainty it is.
Last but not least, this rare Taylor & Kent cup. It has a scallop shape with a matching scallop saucer. It has a looped handle. The colors are very fall like. I have put up more Thanksgiving decorations. Isn't fun to change everything around. I must admit, my favorite decorations are Christmas ones. I can't wait to see those tea cups! Please don't tell anyone I can't remember what I have in storage. I don't want people to think, well you know. I just don't want them to think!
You know what to do with Mr. Linky. Please don't forget to visit Terri. I am sure she will have something amazing to show us from her recent trip. The tea pot is part of a Lusterware set I have.
Love the colors for Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful week. Please don't forget to pray for the little Noah and for his Grandmother's mouth! Blessings, Martha
