LAST TEA CUP TUESDAY OF 2010!
Hello Tea Cup Lovers! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 42! Can you believe this year is about to end? It seems like it just started. Time to think about storing away your beautiful Christmas decorations. Do you put yours away early or do you wait until after the 1st? I have already begun to put my Christmas away for next year. It will take me all week. I like to start January 1st, ready for the year. January marks the beginning of my 3rd year of blogging. Wow! The places I have been to and the people I have met thanks to blogging. It really has changed my life. I will have a giveaway to mark the occasion (next week)!
So, are you worn out from Christmas? This woman was a "party animal"! Today, was the first day that was not filled with things to do. I did get a surprise visit from a dear friend, which is always nice. I do want to show you these Christmas mugs, close up, before I put them away for another year. The mugs are made by Waterford. Can you see the detail on the birds, the feet are hand painted onto the handle. I told you I was on a handle kick.
Want to know something funny? I am learning to dance, (to Lady Gaga no less). Don't laugh, son Kyle has this new thing on his TV, computer, I don't what it is on, to tell you the truth, but I am learning to dance for exercise. It is so much fun. The whole family has been doing it, including Noah. I laughed so hard, my face hurt! OK, back to the tea cups. This next one I may have already shown you, but I love what it says on the cup. "Forget Me Not", a good saying for this time of the year.
The next tea cup is a hand painted, angel cup with a square cup and saucer. Even the spoon has been hand painted, so lovely. The pin is also handmade with vintage buttons and lace. The beautiful Tea pot at the top of the post was a gift from my sister, Nora. I just love it. I really "needed" a new tea pot. It is my favorite. Before I close, I have to tell you the Grandchildren gave me a puppy for Christmas. The dog is a black Cockier. Noah, named it Red and Maya named it Blackie. So, to make the everyone happy. His name is "Red-Blackie". Merry Christmas Martha!
Well I know I have had a lot to say, so I will stop. Here is Mr. Linky for the party. I can't wait to read all about your cups and your Christmas. Please, make sure. if you link up to this post, that your post is on tea cups or tea pots and not your "store". Thanks, love you lots, Martha
