TREASURE HUNTING MY NATURAL TALENT!
Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No 72. I am so sorry about last week's Mr. Linky, I really not sure what happened. I am sure it will be better this week. I hope you are all having a great week. I have some new cups to show you this week. I tend to get stuck on certain cups I love and forget all about others. I am getting ready for a large tea party so, I am sure you will be seeing cups that I have not shown you before.
My week is very full so I am writing this on Sunday. For you Scrap Book ladies in Southern California, I have joined the yearly Shop Hop. This year plans to be extra fun. I was a part of it last year and it was amazing. If you are a Scrapper at all, look for it at your nearest Scrapbooking store, who knows we might just meet! Worth the $12 to join, you get so many perks, not to mention the fun. Here I am with Johnny! Can life get better?
Now for this week's beauties! My first cup is this stunning cream color Florentine, by Royal Ducal. This cup has an embossed floral and fruit design. It is so classy looking. I have quite a collection of cream or white cups. Totally forgot about them until recently. I will post all white next week and share them with you. I have two of these, one I am putting on my Website.
The next cup is a Shelley. The pattern name is "Heather". It doesn't look like a Shelley does it? Interesting cup, I am not sure how well I like it. I picked it up at a Thrift Store for $1.49. How could I resist? A woman has to do what she has to do! I just had to buy it! I looked it up on Ebay and it is listed for $58. Not a bad deal.
Cup No. 3 is a Sadler. I didn't even know Sadler made tea cups. I knew about Tea Pots because I have a collection of them, but tea cups was news to me. I love the shape of this cup. It works great for coffee too!
Last but not least, is this Queen Anne, pattern name "Nottingham Lace". I grow Bearded Iris so this one caught my eye. The prettiest part of this cup is the gray lace it has on the background.
Well, here is this week's Mr. Linky. I do thank you for your faithfulness once again. I have taken a few pictures of the new "color" in my home now. I have been working very hard at thinning things out around my home. This is my problem, OK, I am confessing I have a problem. I only buy things I really love, so selling them gets a little tough for me. (Is that a Hoarder statement?) Oh, no!
Be happy and don't forget to visit the Traveling "Terri", who know what wonderful treasures she has in store for us. Oh, and don't forget to visit my website please!
