Hello Ladies! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! I love Mother's Day, I have a wonderful Mom who is my rock. It is always so much fun when we gather to celebrate her and all the Mom's in the family. It feels like Christmas. We share gifts with all the Mom's and lucky me, I got two tea cups! I needed them sooo bad! Now I get to share them with you, on Tea Cup Tuesday, No. 61!
The first tea cup is one of those gifts. It is from the Bradford Editions. It is called "Topaz Tulip" by Lena Liu. I did not even know Bradford issued tea cups. I love the bow on the handle of this one. The background is a very pale teal. Like I said, "I needed a tea cup!"
Cup No. 2 is also a Bradford Editions, 1996. It is called "Circle of Joy, Floral Greetings" from Lena Liu. It features a purple pansies with a butterfly in the center. This one too, was also a gift I needed badly!
Cup No. 3 is one I have had for years. I don't believe I have ever shown you this one. I have a few that are similar, but not quite the same. It is, of course, a Haviland, Limoges. Teal and pink roses, just stunning.
The last tea cup I am sharing this week is called "Ferncroft", by Royal Worcester, England. It is a trio, very sweet! It was a thrift store special a couple of years ago.
Did I ever tell you I collect lady figurines? Well, I do, I have several around the house in different colors. The top picture is a Josef. I think they are my favorite items to collect. I know that is shocking, considering the number of tea cups I have. I just love how they can make any spot look so romantic.
I am going to end this post with some pictures of Noah. He is into costumes and dress up these days. The three costumes in these pictures are some I made for my son, Kyle who is now 21 years old. Looking at Noah in these costumes reminded me of my son so much. Noah looks so much like him. He is just too cute to not show you.
You know what to do with Mr. Linky! Have a wonderful week. Don't forget to visit Terri's blog. You never get disappoint with your visit there. Hugs to all, Martha
