TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 41! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Hello my Tea Cup Friends! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 41! I am hoping to show you as many Christmas Tea Cups as I can before they get all put away for next year. The month of December has been so filled with joy! I am almost sorry that it will all be behind us in a week. I am still not done Christmas shopping and I have to finish a scrapbook. We had our annual Christmas Cookie Baking Party with the entire family this week. My nephew, Tim, introduce his new girl to the family tradition. I do love this part of Christmas, rushing from one place to the next, shopping, family, friends, parties and of course Jesus the reason why we do it all! Please take a minute to listen to this first song and just imagine you were Mary, the Mother of our Savior! Wow!
As you know I have had a few ups and downs lately, but I really think it has to do the diabetes. I am very new to this disease and still need to learn how to keep my sugar in balance. I am suppose to do it with food and exercise only. It is not easy, the parties do not help. I would apprecriate a prayer for me about that, thanks. Now, let's get right to the tea cups! This first one I wasn't sure if it would photograph at all because of the colors. It is part of the Christmas set I am going to use this year. I have two sets of Christmas dishes and this one won. I will show you pictures of the table all set when it get closer. The set is burgundy depression glass and it is etched with flowers at the end. Not sure if you can see it, but it is quite pretty. Not as fancy as some, but I love it.
The second set is a cream and burgundy set that is German by Komgt pr.Tettan. Please take a moment to look at the handles on this cup. I have been on a handle kick lately. Some of the handles on these tea cups are just stunning.
Tea Cup No. 3 is a Palissy Pottery, Staffordshire, England. The pattern is called "View Near Hurley Berks". I hope this year to find a set of this red, transfer ware. I just love the beautiful colors.
I wanted to show you this picture that Noah took of me. When I really try hard, I take awful pictures and this one by Noah was not bad. He also took about 10 pictures of the inside of my trash can. I am not going to think about that too long, thank very much. (Me the trash can, no, I won't go there!)
I am also including a few more Christmas decorations around my home. I want to wish you all a wonderful Christmas. I pray God will richly bless you. I also pray that you will be surrounded by people you love. Remember God is love. Here is Mr. Linky. Please don't forget my dear friend Terri. She always has a treat for you each Tuesday. Here is her address http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. Before I say good-bye, I would also like to ask for prayer for my dear blogger friend, Patti. God's knows what she needs. Thank you and love to all. Martha
