THE DIVA AND THE TEA CUPS!
Hello dear Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 103. Hope you are well. God has been so good to me this past week. It seems like everything I prayed for He was so Faithful and answered me. You know one of my top concerns on my heart was the fact that my precious "Sophia" could not tolerate her Grandmother. It did not make any difference what I did, it was instant crying at just the sight of me. On Saturday however, we had a break though. I sat on my daughter's couch, laid her right next to me and we had a long tough talk. We got some things out on the table, cleared the air between us (well I did, she is 4 months), I repented of everything (I was not sure what I had done to bug her and did not want to leave any stone unturned.) We talked about my lack of kissing her toes when she came into the room, about my insensitive comment about her hair always needing a bow. (I was gruel!) We got the hard stuff out. Like making comments when she spit up on me. (I know, how could I? She has such cute spit.) I repented of the comment about how I thought her head was a little to big for her body. (I knew that must have hurt to the core!) I am a sick woman. Then, slowly she began to come around. First she allowed me the privilege to kiss her cute little toes, then to play with her hands and to even kiss her when I wanted too. Then it happened, a first for this 4 month old, she waved "hi" to me. Our healing was complete. It was just her and I alone for over one and a half hours. It is true confession is so good for the soul. Although she spoke no words, I knew she must have forgiven me, because, she smiled her perfect smile and then tried to eat my face! Life is how it should be again! :) The moral of the story, never offend "A Diva"! It was also good to promise her, she would inherit all my tea cups. (A Woman has to do what she has to do!)
Just had to share this great report, because you have know of my monthly struggles with her. I will start with this Month's tea cups. The change has started for my home and some green and some "Easter" items has begun to show up their cute faces. I have started with a few St. Patrick's Day cups. My son does have a little Irish in him, from his Dad's side. My first cup is Royal Dover from England. The cup is covered in clovers. Very pretty.
The next cup is a Shelley. The name is "A Dainty Shamrock". A beautiful cup that only Shelley could do. You can see a star in the saucer. The cup is a muted color green, just stunning.
Before I go on the my next cup, I want to share my Belleek Tea Pot. I own the entire set, however, the tea pot I think is the best part of it. One of my favorite tea pots that I own. It is amazing!
My next cup is this amazing Earl of Coventry "Blind Earl" Pattern. It is part of the Connoisseur Collection. Please look at this cup carefully. Everything is raised in a 3 dimensional look. I feels like you can just pick up the stem of leaves with your hand. This is one of my favorite cups. The sad thing is I don't even remember where or when I purchased it. I am usually so much better at that. This old grey mare, she ain't what she use to be!
The last cup I am sharing this month is a hand painted Bavaria, demitasse cup. Please look at the handle it painted in a stem color. Just a stunning dainty design. I love it.
As you may have heard our Terri is on an Art Vacation. She will not be sharing a cup this week.
we must carry on without her. Here is out Mr. Linky. It is ready for all the fun cups we get to see this week. In the mean time. Let's Party. God is good! Hugs, Martha
