REMEMBERING A SPECIAL DAD AND YES, TEA CUPS!
Hello my tea cup loving friends! Hope you all had a great Father's Day weekend and are ready to share your treasures with us this week. I lost my father about 15 years ago and somehow on Father's Day, it always feels like it just happened. I wonder what would Dad say about my life now? Would he be proud of who I have become? I know for sure, he would love playing with his Great-grandchildren. Dad was a man who loved his family. His family was always first in his life. Somehow, I knew, if Dad was around, everything was going to be ok. I know because of his example, I can trust in a Heavenly Father, who will never leave me nor forsake me! I guess you realize I am still feeling a little tender about Father's Day, even yet!
So before I break into tears and someone comes in and thinks I have gone crazy, on to the tea party! The first tea cup I am going to share with you is a Adderley, from England. The pattern name is "Blue Chelsea". Love the slate blue design on this trio.
Cup No 2 is a demitasse cup. It is marked "RW", Made in Germany, US Zone. It is a simple cup with gold trim.
Cup No. 3 is an Aynsley. I am sure some of you could spot a Aynsley right away. The colors are dark blue, brown and cream. It is very pretty.
The last cup is also an Aynsley. I love that the design is in the middle of the cup. Those cups are some of my favorites. This cup is on a white background with a light blue, floral design.
Keeping with the Aynsley theme, the white tea pot is also a beautiful Aynsley. It has a stunning simple design which just makes it so special.
Did I ever tell you I like to collect "4th of July" things? Well, you guessed it I do! This week I have taken pictures of little vignettes around my house for this month. In my never ending desire to prove that I am not a hoarder! I hope you enjoy them.
