A TEA CUP TUESDAY ALMOST FORGOTTEN!
You are not going to believe this, well maybe you will. I forgot it was Tuesday! What is my problem? How could I forget Tea Cup Tuesday No. 40, no less? Well, my only excuse is "The old gray mare, she ain't what she use to be!" I have been doing too many things lately. One too many parties, and still going. So ladies, this post will be a little different. I am going to make you hunt for the teapots and tea cups.
I do remember I promised to show you some of my kitchen decorations. I will do that too! I want to start with a Christmas Tea cup. The only one I am going to show you today. Not because that is all I have, but because I forgot it was Tuesday remember? The cup is a Duchess and it is call "Winter". It is pictured with two of my other favorite things to collect Christmas pins and shoes. This cup does have a very winter feel to it. I love the colors. Then again, I am a color person, in case you did not guess that already. I just love the saying on this ornament.
These next pictures are of a Lefton Teapot, cream & sugar, and a Coffee canister. I love the red roses on this set. I know there must be cups out there, I have just never found them. Do you have a tea cup to sell me?
See my China cabinets over my counter? That's where I keep my Limoges! My favorite of all dishes, Limoges. If you look real carefully, you will notice two, English, Granny Tea pots on top with some of my Yellow Ware collection. I know I told you I collect Yellow Ware, didn't I?
Did I ever tell you I collect Christmas Trees? Well I do, all types. This one with the angels, (also something I collect) is one I made a few years back. At one time I made things and sold them. Don't you just love this Charlie Brown type tree with the bells?
I think I have been confessing to too many collections this post. I always feel so, so GUILTY. What can I tell you? I am a thrift store junky, I need help, I confess! While I am in the mood to confess, the glass jar, at the top of the post, is filled with vintage glass ornaments, something I also collect. Ok, I am going to stop confessing before I get bad dreams about my collections. (I collect Snowman too, that's it, I am done!)
Without any further delay, here is Mr Linky. Remember, regardless of how crazy you think I am, I still love you! Blessings, Martha
