TEA CUPS WITH THE GLAMOUR OF CAMEOS!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 102! For some weird reason, I keep deleting this post. It's not pretty getting old. Hope your week has gone well. I am still struggling with this Kidney problem, but otherwise, things are good. Sophia has decided she might just like me after all (at least the last 3 visits were good.)
Noah is coming over to have time alone with Grandma. He does not want to share me with his sister or his Mom and Dad. He wants "alone time" with Grandma. I think God also looks for alone time with us. I have to do more of both.
Noah has also picked a winner for this month's giveaway during his visit. It is Mom Wald Place. She has a wonderful blog filled with great collections. Please email me so I can send you your cup.
My house is in change mood. It is getting ready to greet March. However, I am still sharing more pink rose cups this week. I have so many and I often forget to share them. These first two cups are Chintz. I love Chintz anything. This first one is a Royal Standard, from England. The roses are a dark pink with lilac flowers in between.
Cup No. 2 is a St. George Chintz, also from England. This one is not vintage, but a new cup. Love the little thumb rest on this one.
Cup No. 3 is a very special vintage, Schumann, Arzberg, Pierced, Reticulated, Bavarian Tea Cup Trio. It is so beautiful. I love the pierced dessert plate.
My last tea cup is a Royal Kent, Made in Staffordshire, from England. The roses are so beautiful. This one too, is a trio.
Did I ever tell you I collect Lead Crystal, knife rests? I think they are so pretty, so they give lots of items a "rest" in my home. Only the Victorians could think of knife rests and make them so beautiful. They look lovely with my Cameo collection.
I want to share a little of my love for Cameos before I end this post. I forget about these beauties. They are simply something to behold.
Here is this week's Mr. Linky. Be sure to take time to visit Terri, she has some amazing tea cups to share with us.I am featuring this wonderful Antique Chintz Teapot for sale on my website. If you are interested in the beauty take a peek. It is lovely.
That top tea cup is a hand painted Lefton. It is so beautiful inside.
Have a wonderful week. Please pray for my family, we need a physical healing. Hugs, Martha
