Hello my tea cup loving friends! It is time for another Tea Cup Tuesday Party! Have any of you received your Easter Tea Baskets yet? I know mine is on it's way and I can't wait to show it to you! I am so excited, I feel like a little girl again at Easter, waiting to open her basket! Can't wait to see yours!
My week was pretty uneventful, worked a lot on the web site, maybe learned a little more about it. Still not ready to show you, but it looks good! All my children were over Saturday, to watch Grandma try to learn her web site as Brandon, my dear Son-in-Law patiently tried to help me. Emphases on patiently and tried!
As I told you last on my last post, Noah broke my camera. Now I am trying to learn my son's camera. It is much more advanced than mine. Just another thing I have to learn. It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks. I did have a wonderful time with my children on Saturday. On Thursday I had a visit from a member of the family and it was so painful, I cried for two hours after he left. I knew I was going to get hurt, it just always surprises me somehow. My sister-in-law gave me the "Family" frame at the top of the page. Praise the Lord for wonderful family members!
Ok, let's talk tea cups! The first picture is of a tea pot and tea cup by Roy Kirkham, in England. The pattern is called "Redoute' Roses". It is a common pattern you see everywhere, but I just love the roses. I am not sure what blog I got the idea of putting pearls to look like a drink from, but I know it was one of you. I want to give you all the glory, so please let me know if it is you. (They say the memory is the first to go.) Not true, I know for a fact other things went first!
My next cup is from my favorite china house, Limoges. It is a demitasse. What can I say, I have never met a Limoges I did not love!
This cup is one of my favorites. It is a Paragon, Chintz. It is just breathe taking! I never talk to much about my vintage jewelry. It really is my first passion. I love this brooch. I use my vintage jewelry to decorate everything and never grow tired of their beauty.
My last cup is a Colclough, from England. It is a gold and white Chintz. Look at the stunning bracelet, it is a Julianna. I don't have many of her items, they are like Marian Haskell's, very expensive. This bracelet was purchased at a Goodwill for $4.00, did I score or what? Why is it as women we need to be surrounded by beauty? I like to open my drawers and cabinets and see the beauty even in places not normally looked at.
Just need to remind you of my give away it ends next week. You know what to do with Mr. Linky. Please keep your post's tea related. This is our 58th Tea Cup Tuesday! Terri and I want to thank you for your faithfulness!
Wishing you all the peace that can only be found in our Lord Jesus, as we celebrate His death and ressurection!
