HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TEA LOVERS!




Happy Valentine's Day Ladies! I hope your day is filled with love ones. Today we are celebrating Tea Cup Tuesday No. 100! We are still loving it as much as the very first day we started. This red rose tea pot and cup is a Lefton, American Rose. I have the set and it is stunning.





I don't know if you have heard, there is a lot of worry about what is going to happen to us on March 1st in Blogland. Will we all lose each other? I hope not. Why can't things be simple? I am adding a new way of following this blog in hopes of not falling off the face of Blogland. I would appreciate you adding your name to both of the links. We will see which one will work the best. If you have any information about this let, let me know. Have you discovered Pinterest? I am so hooked! Look on my side bar and check it out, if you have not been there. I warn you, it is addicting!



On to the cups, this first cup is a square Angel Cup. It was hand painted by Lori White. I received it as a gift from my church several years ago. Love the square shape and all the Angels that decorate even the spoon.




This next cup is a Theodore Haviland, Limoges, France demitasse cup. This cup has the most beautiful rose design on the edges.



The next cup is unsigned. It looks like someone just ruffled the edges on this dainty little cup. That cute card in the back was made by Terri. She has more talent in her little finger than anyone I know.



This last cup for this week is this stunning Paragon. It is part of the Antique Series and is called "Gainsborough." I love cups with couple scenes on them. This is part of a four series set. Each one in different colors. I just think they are amazing looking.




I have been working on this great little project for my Sophia. I have had such good comments about them that I have decided to add them to my website. I hope you like them. They are handmade shoes for infants. What I am going to try to do is make them each one of a kind. I am taking orders, so if you would like a pair, please let me know. We can discuss colors when ordering.




Remember I am having another give away. You can look at last week's post to view the rules. Here is the cup you can win!




Here is this week's Mr. Linky. You know what to do. We leave the linky up all week so, if you are busy on Valentine's Day, come by the next day. I hope you enjoyed the Spanish love songs, they are my favorites. May your week be filled with love! Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha,
congratulations to you and Terri for 100 posts Tea Time Tuesday. And you have still new cups to show us. Whow. The first two sets are my favourites. The one with the raised pink roses are absolutely stunning. And the little baby shoes are too cute. I am sorry that I have no little one to buy such cute shoes. Your grandchildren are both cuties. Thank you for sharing and for hosting this wonderful event.
Happy Valentines Day, Johanna

I have a weak spot for Lefton, and your American Rose set makes my heart pitter patter.

Your wee little shoes are adorable! Your friend is obviously not the only one with a lot of talent.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tea Cup Tuesday No 100! Congratulations!! That is sure a milestone!!
Martha, I love your Lefton, American Rose!! The large rose just makes me envy this beautiful set. Whew, eye popping! Even the the little rose knob is precious.
Your square cup is very sweet. Who doesn't like a chubby cherub! Some day what I would like to see is that figurine behind it. lol...
Your sets are just delightful today and I love the card from Terri. And you are right about her talent!!
I love your stunning Paragon. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the set. This one is very beautiful and I like to soft colors.
I LOVE your little shoe project. That is such a sweet set and will look great on your Sophia.
Happy Valentine's Day, Martha.
