MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH TEA CUPS!
Hello Dear Tea Cup Lovers!
Are you ready for another wonderful week of sharing tea cup treasures? I am writing this post late Sunday night because I know I will not have time on Monday. I hope that your Valentine Dreams came true for you. I just love feeling loved. Who doesn't? I thank God for February the month of love.
I want to thank you for all those positive comments on my up coming web site. So you know, I will not only be selling tea cups, but also thinning out some of my many collections. If you ever see an item on my blog that you would like to purchase, please email me. I am not saying I will sell it to you, however, you can make me an offer I can't refuse! I am always looking for something new to add to my collections and something has to give. This is my way of "staying healthy" (you know what I mean).
Now that Valentine's Day is behind us and our feet are back firmly on the ground, let's look at the Tea Pots and cups I am going to share this day after Valentine's Day with you. Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/ and I have hosted 49 Tea Cup Tuesday. We both just love it!
I would like to start off with a relatively new Tea Pot set I purchased at the Thrift Store for $6.99. The tea pot and sugar and creamer are one of my favorites. When I first saw it on the shelf it was so dirty but I thought it might be Belleek because of how delicate it was. However, it turned out to be a Jolie Fleurs. The pattern name is "Mann". Interesting isn't it? The body is a white china with delicate pink roses as a design. Just beautiful as can be. A true treasure.
The next one is a hand painted rose cup and saucer and was Made in Japan. I normally do not care to much for cups that are Made in Japan. This one however, is a looker. All gold on the out side and completely Hand painted on the inside with a pedestal cup.
This next cup is from Schumann, Aazberg, Germany. It is decorated as much on the inside as it is on the outside. Usually, one side gets more decorations than the other, but not on this cup. Have you noticed the handles? Both this cup and the one above have amazing handles.
This next cup is amazing. First because it cost me $2.49, and secondly because it is a Shelly in mint condition. This was a Thrift store find. I think I mentioned this cup a while ago, but never posted a picture. The flowers on the cup look like cherry blooms. The pictures do not do this one justice.
This silver tray was also purchased at the Thrift Store. I really scored that day. It is sterling and costs me $2.99. It is so beautiful and dainty looking.
Before I put Mr. Linky up for you I want to show you the "Stylish Blog Award" I recently won. Never thought of myself as stylish so I am very honored to get it. The award came from http://gorightinmygarden.blogspot.com/. I am not sure of her name, but I am positive of her wonderful skills in gardening. You must stop by her post. It is truly amazing. Thank you for thinking of me as "Stylish" anything!
You know what to do with Mr. Linky. Thank you for your faithfulness! That amazing Valentine at the top of the page was made for me by Terri. That woman is so talented. She never stops amazing me. I was feeling very tender and the kindness made me cry. Thank you, Terri! I love it! Hugs and Kisses, Martha
PS: IT IS TUESDAY AND NOAH IS VERY SICK WITH A HIGH FEVER. HE HAS THE CROUP. YOU KNOW HOW HORRIBLE THAT CAN SOUND TO A MOM. PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM LADIES! THANK YOU, GRANDMA MARTHA
