SAVING THE PLANET ONE TEA CUP AT A TIME!



Hello my tea cup loving friends! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 84! I still have to show you picture's of my Sophia Lola. I wish you could hear her squeak. She loves to eat and sleep. She curls herself up into a little ball when you hold her. Here is a picture she posted on Face book and with her Uncle Kyle. "Happy Birthday to me!!! I'm 10 days old today." She is so smart.




Today I have some interesting cups to share with you. This first one I call my Jetson Tea Cup. It is a Winterling, Bavaria, Germany. It is trimmed in 24 KT Gold. Now, don't you think this is a cup that Jane Jetson would be using?





Cup number 2 is the Royal Kent, Made in Staffordshire, England. Love the colors on this trio. I forgot I own it.



My next cup is a very special, favorite of mine. It is part of a complete set my late Father gave to my Mother when they were very young. It is a Homer Laughlin, Virginia Rose pattern. My Mother gave it to me and I gave it to my daughter Vanessa, when she got married. I love giving china sets for weddings to immediate family. Vanessa is my sentimental child, and I know she cherishes it. It is trimmed in Platinum. She gets this cup when I am gone. Right now, it reminds me of the special times at home, when I was young!




We are still having hot weather here in So. Cal., I know that many of you are starting to experience Autumn. We just may have a hot Halloween night this year. I have been in a rearranging mode. So the whole house looks like it has been turned up side down. I take pictures to show you the new look.

Here is this week's Mr. Linky. Don't forget to visit Terri, not only is she sharing some amazing tea cups, but if you are lucky, you can join one of her wonderful art classes. You have to take a peek at what she is teaching. News just in, she is about to be a Grandma too! God is so good! I want to thank you for making this party so special. You are so appreciated. I feel like I am part of many of your lives. Wonderful isn't it?



I have listed many new things on my website http://prettyvintagethings.com/. Please stop by and take a peek. Giving "Vintage" for the Holidays helps me and the planet! Don't forget to let me know if you follow my blog, blog followers get a discount. Have a wonderful week.

Hugs, Martha

Those are cute pics of Sophia Lola and Kyle.

The teacups are all lovely. The "Jetson" cup is quite unusual. Your Mom's Virginia Rose china is such a pretty pattern. It's nice that it is being passed down in your family.

It's still quite warm here in GA too.

Terri said...

Oh she is so very sweet! If I was holding her I wouldn't want to put her down. I am sure you feel that way Grandma! Next week I will have my grandbaby to hold too : )
Your cups today are beautiful. I love all, but the second cup with the yellow and pink roses are my favorite of the day. And yes, Mrs. Jetson would have used htat cup!
Hugs,
Terri

Hello Martha,
Your little grandbaby is so precious. I remember when my granddaughter used to 'squeak' too. My son had sent me a video and she squeaked when she had her bottle. My son called her 'Daddy's little squeaker'; so adorable! She is ten months old now.
About your teacups, they are lovely as always. It's nice that you pass down your special teacups to family members. Thank you for sharing and I wish you a delightful day.

Blessings,
Sandi
