LOVE IS IN THE AIR!
Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday! February is upon us, with Valentine's Day just around the corner! Next to Christmas and Easter, it is my favorite month. Love is in the air and we all act just a little foolish. I love it! I was with Noah at Target this week and he was willing to pass up a toy for himself to get a Princess wand for his mother and me (3 in a package, one for him too.) He told me his heart would be broken in half if he could not buy this with his own money. (He has no money, he's three!) When I finally said yes, he wiped his tears and said "Grandma, you are so useful." Isn't that what we all want to hear from a man? When we got home, he hide them so he can give them to us on Valentine's Day! It was his big secret. He told his Mom all about it, but she could not guess what the gift was until Valentine's Day! He is so cute! Right then and there, we all decided we had to take him on a date for Valentine's Day!
While I am think about celebrating, we have a winner of the 4th Blog Birthday! Drum roll please . . .Brenda of http://downmemorylalalane.blogspot.com/ Down Memory La La Lane. Brenda is new to blogging and has recently started joining us for Tea Cup Tuesday! Congratulations! Please email me with your information!
I will be having another Giving Away next week. To celebrate 700 plus followers. This will be open to just followers, so if you are not a follower, this week is your chance.
This is 98th Tea Cup Tuesday for Terri and I! Can you believe it? I thought I would show you this wonderful Tea Set by Aynsley. It reminds me of love. It was purchased for a Wedding Shower, I gave Vanessa and her husband, so many years ago. They were so in love. Her husband told me yesterday, that he loves Vanessa more today than he ever did when he first married her. A Mother cannot ask for more!
What says "I love you" better than a rose? This next tea cup is a Taylor and Kent, Longton, England. I love the single huge rose that covers this amazing cup. It is so very rich looking. Love the white with the pink center, almost like candy!
This next cup also features a beautiful single rose. It is a common set you might have seen. It is by Roy Kirkham, Redonte' Roses, Made in England. I am lucky enough to have the tea pot too. Since I usually only buy my cups at estate sales and thrift stores, I do consider myself lucky to have both. I purchased the tea cup first and a few years later, found the tea pot.
Did I ever tell you I collect Vanity Boxes? You guessed it, I do! It is my fourth largest collection. I going to be sharing them with you this month.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. You know what to do. Please visit Terri, she just put a new face on her blog and it is beautiful. If you have not had a chance to purchase the new Shabby Lanes Magazine, take a peek. I have a two page feature it in I would love to have you read. Here is my lastest listing, on Pretty Vintages Things! Great for Valentine's Day!
May your week be filled with love. Hugs, Martha
