Hello dear friends! I hope you had a wonderful week and a ready for another Tea Cup Tuesday. Terri and I love to host this fun event every Tuesday. This week also marked the end of our Easter Tea Cup Swap. I hope you are all getting your baskets ready to ship!

Before I share my cups I just want to let you know what I did this weekend. I was invited to "Paris in a Cup", by my friend Sharon who I met through our blogs. This amazing tea house knows how to do a High Tea with lots of glam! I was met at the door by Sharon, who knew me immediately. The event was so much fun, I felt so blessed to have gone. We listen to wonderful ladies who encouraged us in every aspect of business. They gave us answers to questions I did not even know I needed to ask. This sign was a door prize! I couldn't wait to hang it up over my kitchen door.

One of the speakers was, Jacqueline de Montravel. She is the Editorial Director to Romantic Homes, Cottages Bungalows & Victorian Homes. Romantic Homes my favorite magazine. Along with being the main speaker, she was there to promote her new book. I really wanted to buy the book, but I just paid my property taxes, and in California, that is a major bill. So I held it and just talked to the sweet lady. We got to talking about tea cups and she mentioned that, in August they were going to dedicate the magazine to people who love Tea cups. To make a long story short, she wants to come to my home to interview me and take pictures of my tea cups!!! I was standing there trying to be so calm, inside I am jumping up and down. Maybe she was just being nice, but today she emailed me!

I am not sure why I feel God has been blessing me, but I am so grateful for it all. As you can see by my pictures, the house is beginning to look normal again. The first cup I want to show you is one of my favorites. It is a Limoges, of course, it is so light and almost see through. I love the scalloped edges.

This next picture is of a Bunny Tea Pot. It is a Royal Albert. Just perfect for Easter!

The next tea cup is a Lennox. It is hand painted and numbered. It is a demitasse. It never had a saucer. It is so beautiful!

I am also sharing this two cup vintage, Sadler Tea pot. Love the violets and they are perfect for this time of year.

This last cup is a Haviland Limoges. It is not a trio, but I wanted to show you how easy you can mix and match Limoges. As you know, I favor Limoges. Can you see what I did while taking these pictures? I broke it. So sad, oh well. I will always remember how beautiful it was.

Last, but not least I have reached 602 followers. To celebrate, I want to give away a tea cup. This pretty green cup with the pedestal base is the prize. All you have to do is leave a comment, as often as you like, take my button for extra points and at the end of the month, Noah will pick your name out of a hat. Just let me know so I can had you the the hat. Thank you for your faithfulness!

Here is "Mr. Linky". Thank you for being a part of Tea Cup Tuesday No. 57! By the way, I still can not figure out my new website. It's still pretty! Hugs, Martha

Hello, this is new follower Orchid. What splendid cups they are. I am grateful to have chance to see all these marvelous items through blogging.
