TEA CUPS & ANGELS!
Wow! What a weekend! I think I cried off and on for most of this weekend. I don't you how you felt about it, but to me it was like 9/11 had just happen yesterday. It was so bad the commercials made me cry. God Bless this great country of ours. To be honest with you I was glad when 9-12 came. A relief that nothing awful had happen to us by some crazy person. I know God says "Let not your heart be troubled", I confess, I like my ducks all in a row. When things are not in my control, I come a part. My family was everywhere but home on Sunday, which made the day even worse for me. There is a Scripture that reads, Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about so many things, but only one thing is needed and Mary has chosen what is best! I know I have not quoted that exactly, but I wish I was more like Mary. The funny thing is, my middle name is Mary. My heart goes out to all who suffered so much that day. As a Nation, we suffered with them.
Moving right along. Hope you are having a great week so far. It is Tea Cup Tuesday No. 79 and Terri and I are looking forward to seeing all your treasures. I love that I can change my thoughts to what is of no importance, in comparison to what we just re-lived. I thank God for His Mercies that are new every morning. So, Ladies, what did we find that has inspired us this week? I have been in a creative mood this week. I have made these cute angel candle holders to sell on my website. Didn't they come out cute? I have had these angels for a while. They have been waiting for the perfect, vintage cups. They look so beautiful with the candles glowing. Did I ever tell you I collect Angels? Well, I did, I have stopped now. One day, my husband was counting them and he got tired and stopped. I knew then, I needed to stop too! I still have too many.
I have notice that a lot of you have begun to change to fall colors. I think I better get in gear too. I love Autumn, the leaves falling and those amazing colors. Most of all I love the cool temperatures. I am tired of the heat!
Here is my first tea cup for this week. It is a Mustache Cup. It is a R.S. Prussia. I have had it for years. It is strong and sturdy, like a man's cup should be. The Old Lady Tea Pot, is English. It belong to my Mother-In-Law. It is special to me because I loved her so.
My next cup is R.C Rosenthal, hand signed, Kronach, Germany. It is so 50's looking. The colors are orange, blue and brown with a cream background. They remind me of when I was a little girl. This is a demitasse cup. Beautiful!
My last cup is a Noritake. I love the details on this cup. Even the orange looks so pretty. I am not an orange color person. However, it seems that for next few months I am surrounded with those colors. Noah has already complained that I don't have Halloween Decorations up. "Granma, your are late!" I have my orders.
Before I say good bye, I have to tell you of another first for me. I am on Facebook (note the button). I am not sure what to do with it. I will learn, so please be my friend on Facebook. My picture looks like Tim the Toolman Taylor's neighbor! (You only see the eyes.) It was a mistake and I don't know how to fix it. I don't know how to post on Facebook either. (I know, I am a piece of work!) I do know I need friends and help!
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Terri is always so faithful and getting it ready for us. By the way, she is teaching a class. When you visit her, check out her class. I will be putting a button on my blog in the next couple of days so you can get there directly. Terri is amazing!
Love one another! Hugs, Martha
