TEA CUP TUESDAY & LAST WEEK FOR GIVE AWAY



Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 101! I will still be sharing with you more pink cups this week. Noah has informed me that Valentine's Day is over and I need to redecorate. This is how he put it "Grandma, is it still Valentine's Day? No, let's change it people." The child is three! He sure keeps me on my toes. His Dad got on his case for calling me "People." I sure love that boy! Despite my orders, Valentine's decorations will stay up another week. I am sure I will hear about it. I have been feeling very crafty this week. (It is Pinterest, I am addicted.) One of the items I made was this wreath. It was made with vintage bling. I think it came out so cute. It is far prettier in person than these pictures show. If you are interested in how to make it, just email me and I will tell you how.



Before I start sharing my cups, I just had to share this great tea pot. I picked it up at a thrift store, a few years ago. I love the lips. It only comes out in February.



My first cup is this Schumann, Arzberg, Germany beauty. It is very ornate and reminds me of the Flintridge China I own.





My next cup is a Haviland Limoges. I have the complete dinner set, service for 12. I am giving this set to my Princess Maya, when she gets a home of her own.




Cup No. 3 is also part of a set. I know, I know, how many sets do I need? Anyway, it is a Johnson Brothers tea cup Made in England. Love the delicate rose design of this piece. Although, Johnson Brothers tend to craze very easily. The quality must not be high, but I love the set anyway.




Cup No. 4 is also part of a set. (Let's not talk about!) Love the shape and the roses on this one. It is Hankook China. It is a newer set. The leaves are hand painted in gold. Great set!




Did I ever tell you I collect vintage paper weights? Well I do, I especially love the ones with flowers on them. They are getting so much harder to find these days. I also collect Fenton, in every color. I love this dark pink dish. The red bowl at the top of this post is also Fenton, Buttons & Bows.




This is the last week you will have to enter the give away. Remember it is only for followers. Please see the first post for this month with the give away information.




Before I give you this week's linky I want to show you this "Useless Piece of Junk, I can't live without." I have a lot of things that fall into this category. I not even sure what it is. Maybe you can help? It is very pretty. It is two pieces put together. What do you think it is? I am going to put it in my shop this week, I think. I have had it forever. Believe it or not, I am thinning things out!



Here is Mr. Linky. You know what to do. I heard Terri has a beautiful new cup to share this week. Have a wonderful week. You are treasured by me! Hugs, Martha

I also love those with the big rose that's on your header, just fabulous and the lips...oh well..I didn't link, as I didn't have a tea party, but daughter's new home.
Have a terrific week.

Terri said...

I am sorry I don't know what your cherub piece is. It is really something though! I hope someone can share with us all what it is.
All you cups are totally amazing! I think I have to say the Limoges is my favorite today. I am always partial to the dainty sprays of flowers and gold touches!
A wonderful post! And Noah, as usual, is his funny self! Where do they get this stuff???
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Martha, this is my first visit here. You have some very pretty teacups and the teapot with the red lips is a hoot! I love Limoges and Bridal rose patterns for their delicate softness. Have a great day! Pamela

Charlotte said...

Your grandson is a doll! Only three years old? He already has an eye for details...like his grandma?

Your teacups are beautiful...the first one has a very lovely gold design and looks gorgeous with the flowers!

Marianne said...

Noah brings back many fond memories of my son when he was that age. They really do keep us on our toes. That was adorable.

Blessings,

Oh Martha I do love all your beautiful tea cups. My little collection is so small. I really love it here. Thank you for this beautiful opportunity! You are such a doll! Have a great weekend!

GardenofDaisies said...

Martha, your rose teacups are all so beautiful! And I don't know what the "useless piece" is, but it looks Italian to me. Maybe Capodimonte? Sweet cherubs anyway. :-) It reminds me of a carved statue my FIL had.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Dear "People,"

Love your pretty cups and that table is gorgeous!

I can't even believe you made that wreath, that's amazing! You should make another one and do a step-by-step tutorial!

Beautiful post.

One more week for the Valentines, eh, People? I actually giggled out loud reading that, so hilarious!

Hugs,

Michele
