Hello Tea Cup Lovers! Happy Independence Day! We live in such a great country, regardless of our flaws, we are so blessed to be Americans! This is our 69th Tea Cup Tuesday for Terri and I! The week has been so hot here. Regardless of the heat, the long weekend was well received and enjoyed! Family, two barbeque parties, and even antique shopping with my favorite Sister in Law, these were just a few of the things that we did this long weekend. I also got to visit with two friends from out of state, both did not know the other would be in town. You know how much I love spending time with my family. I even spent some time working on my kitchen and getting my craft room ready for the big "Where Blogger's Create" Party that is coming up soon. This is the third year and I have not missed one yet!

I have yellow tea cups to show you today. That is the new color of my kitchen this month. I do hope you like it. Did I ever tell you I collect anything Cottage? Well, I do and I am sharing some of them today in my kitchen. I have some that are pricey and others that are not so pricey, I just love the look, they tickled my fancy. I hope you enjoy some of the pictures I have taken of them throughout my kitchen.

This first tea cup, I think is amazing! I love just to look at it. It is a Paragon, Chintz pattern, with dark pink roses. Don't you agree it is gorgeous?

Cup No. 2 is a demitasse, yellow depression glass. Yellow depression glass is a little harder to find. This one is made by the Anchor Hocking Glass Company.

The last cup I want to share is a Royal Albert, pattern name is "Day Break". I only have about a dozen yellow cups, I wish I had more. They are happy cups for some reason. I look at them and feel a joy. Weird!

Here are some fun items I have added to my shop this week. Please stop by and take a peek! I want to thank all of you who have stopped by to see me. Don't forget, I offer a discount to my Blog Followers!

Here is Mr. Linky, you know what to do! Don't forget to stop by and say hi to Terri, you will not be disappointed!

I am off to see the Fire Works! Blessings, Martha
