BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS!
Hello Tea Lovers! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No.48! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your favorite football team won. Our day was fun and loud here at home. I loved that Darth Vader commercial. The little boy reminded me of Noah.
I have big news! I am excited to tell you that at long last, I am working on my own web site. I have always wanted to have a brick and mortar store of my own. It looks like this is a close as I am going to get. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy about my new adventure. It is a dream come true for me. I am hoping that by next month, I could be open for business! The plan is to start with just thinning out some of my collections. That will keep me busy for sometime. (You will not be able to call me a Hoarder anymore!) I want to selling my things to you! Please wish me luck, I have so much to learn. I am a little afraid, (ok, very afraid), I don't want to fail, I want to make a profit (very important). I am told it is a lot of hard work. However, it has been a long time desire of mine my heart and I am not afraid of hard work. Ebay fees are killing me and I just cannot get a hang of the Etsy site. Please pray I can learn what I need to learn. If you have any suggestions, PLEASE let me know. I know nothing!
Enough about my dreams, on to the tea cups! Have you noticed we have had a lot of new ladies who are sharing their treasures? It has been so much fun to watch. You never see the same cup on any Tuesday. The way you ladies fix your pictures, they can make you drool (at least I do). This little black cup is a Lefton, too cute! I have had it forever, I don't even remember where I picked it up. Love the little legs.
My next tea cup is one of my all time favorites. It is a Taylor & Kent. I purchased this at an Estate Sale in Pasadena a few months ago. I have told you before that my limit is no more than $10 per tea cup, this cup was $6. I was going to put a piece of bling next to it, but I just could not. It stands alone in it's beauty.
I love tea cups so much, I bet you are thinking this chick is "weird". I guess I am. I am just hooked on tea cups. Look at this next one. It is a Royal Chelsea with amazing pink roses and the painted gold all over the cup. Look at that handle! Too cute!
What about this red and gold Royal Stafford? I paid $6 for this cup too! Did you notice the pedestal base? It is shaped like a crown. The pin in this cup is vintage and hand painted on a piece of porcelain. It is beautiful close up.

I took more pictures of tea cups than I should have so I am stopping here. I know I am running late with "Mr Linky", my day got away from me. Remember to keep that sense of Romance in your home. Thank you so much for joining our party. I love visiting you and I always love to stop by for some tea.
