TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 1 AND NO. 43!
Hello My Tea Cup Loving Friends! Our first Tea Cup Tuesday of 2011. I am very excited to see what God has for us this year! My last post was straight from my heart to you. It is funny because I wrote the post thinking that only my regular followers would read it. You understand me and my foolishness. As luck would have it, I had more new visitors than I have ever had at one time. So the new followers, now think I am nuts! Oh well, such is life! (They would find out sooner or later.) I do want to thank you for all those wonderful comments you left! They touched my heart. I am having a give away this month in honor of two whole years of blogging. This pink cup, with the cute little feet and the bling are what you can win! So, I am not repeating myself, the rules on the December 31st post!
I have spent the last week putting away Christmas (almost done!) It is always a little sad to say good bye to a whole year, but we have a new one to look forward to. What joys will it bring us? Blessings and more blessings are my prayer! It was such a mixed bag last year for me! January is the month that gets decorated in White, Black, Silver and Crystal at my house. A big change from all the color that was used for Christmas. It helps bring me back to reality! White is peaceful and after last month, peaceful is good!
The cups I will show you today are my winter cups, (ok, white cups). Along with the white cups, I do add a little black & white cups too. My black and white cups do not come up very often so I am going to start today with them. (What other month can you use black & white, anyway?)
So, my first cup is this very pretty and different. It is a black and white with gold trim, Clarence tea cup from England. It has this great square, round shape. I love it, what a surprise!
These next pictures are of a English Toile set. It comes with Tea Pot, sugar and creamer, tray and cup and saucer. I love toile stuff, I don't use it enough. If you look closely, you will also notice the beautiful, white, Aynsley, Tea Pot! You can click the picture and it will get bigger. Noah was playing with the heart today and he asked what it was. So I told him it was a paper weight. He quickly took it and put it on top of all his drawing. He is just to cute!
The last picture I am sharing with you are the two white tea pots from Poland and the white cup and saucer, with sugar and creamer. Both these are vintage, Coalport. They looks like someone run the tea cup through a crinkler! I do have a lot of white cups to show you this month.
Here is Mr. Linky, you know what to do with it. Please do not put your stores on the link just post about tea cups and tea pots. We can do that other stuff at another time. Don't forget to visit Terri. She is amazing and always has beautiful tea cups for us to see. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha
