DAZZLE THE EYE WITH TEA CUPS!
Hello dear Tea Lovers! Thank you for joining Terri and I again for another Tea Cup Tuesday, No. 66, to be exact! Hope you had a wonderful week. It was full of parties in Blogland, which is always fun. I am excited to share that Wednesday, I start watching my granddaughter, Princess Maya, for the summer. I get her once a week. It is so wonderful to be able to see her weekly, I just can't begin to share the joy I am feeling. So get ready for some pictures of her next week.
Before I start sharing my tea cups for the week, I want to show you a picture of a scrapbook, I just finished for my Mama. Did I ever tell you I scrapbook? Well, I do, and it is so much fun, but very messy. Tell me what you think? I have been thinking of adding some scrapbooks to my website. All anyone has to do is add your pictures. It seems that scrapbooking is so personal, I not sure if they would sell.
Anyway, to start with today I am going to share this wonderful Portrait Trio. It has I mark, I usually don't show marks, but I am this time in case anyone recognizes it, you can let me know. I think trio's are amazing! They are quite pricey, so I don't have a lot. I love portrait anything. Next week I will try to remember to show you my Cameo collection. They are just stunning.
This next cup is Made in Japan, by the Yokuto China Company. It is one of my all time favorites! It is handpainted. I did not add any bling, because it just did not need anything to make this cup more amazing!
These next two cups are Coalport. They are the same pattern. The only difference is one is a demitasse cup. They are a rich Royal Blue. I forgot I had them, so it was like Christmas then they came up this week. Now, I remember I have had them for years. Now, it is all coming back to me! :) (They say the memory is the first to go. Not true, I know that for a fact!)
The last cup is the giveaway cup. Next week will be the drawing. I will let Princess Maya pick. Let me know if you want your name to be added to hat! I have added a lot of pictures of paper weights, this week. You guessed it, I collect paperweights!
