Hello Ladies: Happy Tea Cup Tuesday No. 88! It is confession time for me. I am almost embarrassed to share this with you, but here goes. I have a good size closet in my bedroom. Every once in a while I make the decision to empty it all out and rearrange one side of it. It is a good time to go thru clothes I have not worn in a year, maybe remove some shoes that I have not worn in a while, it is all a good thing right? (So far, A+ Martha!) I have a pretty big closet. So I sometimes put things in there thinking, when I get a minute, I will put this away where it belongs. I am so sure some of you do the same thing, right? Ok, so I am clearing out one side of the closet, when I find a rather large bin.
The bin I found was clear, large and quite heavy. I couldn't even think of what I stored in it because, I always, mark my bins. This one was unmarked. My first thought was some craft project that must have started and forgot about. However, you would not believe, (I don't believe) what I found. Do you remember when I told you I only had one Italian Made Tea cup? I lied! This bin with full of tea cups, many of them Italian, including a Tea Pot! I am talking about a 40 tea cups! Tea Cups I did not remember I had. As I unpacked them, some were familiar and some were a complete surprise. (Go ahead and say it!) Martha, you are a piece of work. Just look at this table!
I am an organizing freak! I apparently, just organized these tea cups out of my life for years, maybe! My poor children, when I die, it is going to take them a year to clear out this place and I AM NOT A HOARDER! Before you say anything, to my credit, I decided before I fell in love with them, I am going to put them on my website. I have too! (Ok, I might keep one or two, but that is it!) Everything else is going to be sold! I promise!
When Noah came into the house and saw them on the table, he said "Grandma are we having a tea party?" (He loves tea parties. He takes his with only apple juice.) As we sat drinking "tea," I showed him this tea cup. I wanted him to see the little bird handle. Noah looked at it and said "Grandma that is so very precious!" You have to love this boy! He is only 3 years old!
Another tea cup I found is this very cute demitasse cup. It is Made in Japan by the manufacturers that produced those Head Vases, Nasco. Very cute.
Last tea cup this week is the orange color. I really don't recognize the signature.
Did I ever tell you I collect turkeys? Well, you guessed it, I do! I will try and show you some of my collections during the month.
Here is Mr. Linky. Don't forget to visit Terri, not only will she have some amazing tea cups, but she is always ready to teach us something!
I promise I will show you all the tea cups before I sell them. Don't forget I give followers a discount when you purchase on my website. I hope you have a great week and enjoyed taking a peek at my "new" tea cup beauties! I am still in shock! What else could be in this house?
