MIXING TEA CUPS, FIGURINES & HALLOWEEN!
Welcome Tea Cup Lovers to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 85! Ready for another week of sharing our lovely treasures? Did you ever think there were so many tea cup designs? Every week, I see cups that I have never seen before. I know that is what Terri and I love about this party. This is our last Tuesday in October. I don't know about you, but for me it means, it is time for my home to get a whole new make over for Thanksgiving.
With that in mind, I have been moving things around my home this week, thinning out many collections. I have listed a lot of these new collectible items on my website http://prettyvintagethings.com/. Please take a peek, my way of going green!
This week while I was dusting, I had a thought, shocker I know, but listen to this. As you may know, I collect lady figurines (another shocker). This was my thought, why not share my figurines with my tea cups? I have some in every color. Before you say anything, I don't have as many figurines as tea cups, but I do have one or two. So I am going to combine the two. What do you think? Well, I am going to try it, if you don't like it let me know. I am easy.
This week my tea cups are in all different colors. The first one is this amazing vintage, Limoges. It is the most delicate pink and white. It is also, rather large. Most Limoges are a lot smaller. This is one of my favorite cups.
This next cup is also a Limoges. Look at the handle on this one. It looks like it is a sculptured piece of metal. So very delicate and another large one. Perfect, like only Limoges can do!
This next cup is new to me. I don't own any like it. It is made in Italy and although I have other Italian made cups, this one is different. It is made of clay. It is a very light weight, pedestal cup. The rose designs are very intricate, anyway I fell in love with it. Let me know what you think.
Last but not least, is this black and white English, Foley China. The pattern name is "Florence". The roses are brilliant in pink colors. There is something so classy about a black and white cup.
Well, here is this week's Mr Linky. Don't forget to visit Terri http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. She is going to be a Grandma again this week.
Have a safe and fun Halloween! Here is a picture of my Noah as a Cowboy. That boy loves dressing up.

I love the pink teacups, the first one especially. Martha, again you make me laugh with your self-effacing humor regarding your collections. You sure did a great job pairing your figurines with teacups. I like the change, teacups & figurines.
Thank-you again for hosting this teacup extravaganza!( oops, I mean Teacup Tuesday )
Your tea cups are all gorgeous! There is nothing prettier than a dainty tea cup.
Martha, what a simply wonderful idea!!I love the figurines with your tea cups. Oh, I think my favorite is the first Limoges - so sweet, with a blush of pink and the delicate floral pattern kissed with gold. And your figurine is as blushingly darling.
Oh, and the blues of your Italian cup with the figurine were very striking!
Can you believe I haven't even gotten anything out for Halloween. Oh, I'm looking forward to my time being my own.
Have a wonderful Tuesday,
Both your Limoges teacups are beautiful. The first is so elegant with the pale pink color and gold scrolls. The Italian cup has such gorgeous colors and shape and the Florence teacup is great too.
I loved seeing your lady figurines paired with the cups.
