HAPPY HALLOWEEN! TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 86!




Happy Halloween Ladies! We have made the costumes, baked the cookies, carved pumpkins, watched the parade and collected candy! It is all over except for tonight when the kids come to the door. Noah was Captain America and Sophia was pink bones! Maya was a Lion Tamer! I can't believe all I have done in the last few hours. I feel so blessed to share this with my Grandchildren. Must admit, I got a slow start to this post because I am tired already.





My cups this week are all the same shape. The first three are made by the same manufacturer. They are American Made and just stunning. Pattern name of these two is "Sovereign" by Castleton China. I can not believe I sold a service for 12 of these beauties. What was I thinking? This is a standard and demitasse size. Look at the handle of the little one. It is almost the same size as the big one. They are a light cream color with gold trim.




The next cup is also a Castleton, pattern name "Sunnyvale". Love the delicate flowers on this one. Notice the shape is the same as the ones above. Interesting!




Now look at the next cup! Doesn't it look like the other three? It is a RW, from Bavaria. This one is all hand detailed, with a rope like trim.




I am adding a fifth cup today. It is a Belleek. I just love this demitassi cup. It is a cream color with a pale yellow center. Beautiful, if I do say so myself. Did you notice some cups had figurines and some did not? I think this big plan of sharing all three things is not going to work. I don't think you can see the tea cups as well. This post is all about tea cups. So, if I can, I will share the figurines with my cups. I do think the plan failed.




Have a wonderful week! Don't forget to visit the new Grandma, Terri. She has managed to purchase new cups to share with us. I can't wait to see them. Here is Mr. Linky for you to do your thing!





Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha dear,
Your grandchildren look so adorable in their costumes, especially Pink Bones! I love that Superman is playing the ukulele, made me laugh.
I know exactly what you mean about being tired, but our grand babies are just so much fun to be with, right?
I love your teacups that you share with us,it's especially nice when you display them with your jewels or figurines.
TFS and hugs to you.

Martha, good day...

Your grandchildren are beautiful, and isn't it fun to watch them dress up in their favorite costumes. They take it so seriously, and that's the best part.

Your cups, as always, are stunning. I love the figurines posed with them. They add to the charm of it all. Of course your pins are always a delight to me. I really like the way you match everything so well.
