ROMANTIC TEA CUPS JUST IN TIME FOR SPRING



Hello Tea Cup Lovers! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday, No. 104! Well, we have had our time change here in the West Coast and we are ready for what Spring has to bring us. Noah celebrated his fourth birthday this week. He went to Disneyland, got to spend the night in a Suite, followed the next day by California Adventure. At school they had a Birthday Party for him and a Family Party was given on Saturday. So he is all birthday party out! He said it was the best birthday of his whole life. (He is only 4!) I pray that God will give him many more wonderful years to celebrate his birth. He is such a joy to my heart. We spend the day today, playing with all his new toys. He always has to have extras for Grandma. (Some one has to play the bad guy, and that is always me!) We had a delightful time together.



I have a lot of wonderful tea cups and tea pots to share with you today. I want to start with this stunning Shelley. It has a beautiful Cherry Blossoms design. I love it, nothing says Spring like the Cherry Blossoms. It has been my hearts desire to see these beautiful Cherry trees in full bloom in Washington DC. High on my Bucket List! In the mean time, I will have to be satisfied with the beautiful tea cups.





This next cup is by Royal Albert, "Blossom Time". Filled with vivid colors this cups says Springtime all over it!





Cup No three is also a Royal Albert, England. It is the beautiful Lily of the Valley, flowers in white and blue. It say Easter all over it. I wish I could grow Lily of the Valley flowers. I really should try, my garden will grow anything.





The last cup I will share this week is this Paragon. Paragon Tea Cups are fast becoming one of my favorites cups. This mint green with the rose in the center is a perfect example of the beauty of Paragon's. Beautiful!





Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Our wonderful Terri is back from her art retreat. Can't wait to see what she has to show us.


Did I ever tell you that I collect R.S. Prussia? The top plate is one from my collection. I will have to point out others in the future.

Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha,
You have the best times with your little guy! He's a handsome little fella and just full of personality.

What a lovely line-up of pretties you have for us this week, I have the same Shelley teacup and yes, it is the perfect cup for Spring! I have always loved Blossom Time and I've been keeping an eye out for one.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

I noticed that your blog also has involuntary placed a box with colored dots in your post. If anyone else sees this, DO NOT click on it.

Now for my comment....Happy Birthday to Noah. A BIG four!! He's so adorable. Since I have girls, I am always the "bad witch." LOL. At least that leaves them to the heroes and princesses.

The shape of your Cherry Blossom cups is just wonderful. I really like it. The Blossom Time is STUNNING!! The Lily of the Valley is my favorite because I love the blue. You have them all dressed up so nicely. The Paragon is DIVINE!! It's very RICH looking.

I just love having tea with you. Everything is so beautiful.
Hugs,
Brenda

The Shelly Teacup is divine, and then there were more and more and more beauties! Sigh...

I just "read" a book about R.S. Prussia pieces. Amazing! Your teapot is one that I could easily live with, easily.

The teacup fairy visited my house late yesterday afternoon. She is a wonderful creature. I cannot wait to share. Thank YOU!

Oh Martha! You are tantalizing us with all your gorgeous cups! I love everyone of them. The Shelley's coloring and pattern is so beautiful, and the teal/mint one is a real stunning. Just the kind I collect!

Hi Martha,
Congratulations to Noah for this important birthday. It was for sure a party like for a little king. It made me laughing, that it was the best party in his life! I am sure there will follow a lot of nice parties, too. At least as long you accompany his life, there will be always fun and love. Your tea cups are again real treasures. So sweet and springy. Thanks for sharing and for hosting this fun event.
Best greetings, Johanna

P.S. The RS Prussia plate is really pretty. I hope you will sometimes share more with us.

Sares said...

Hello Martha! It's been forever since I have come over to say hello and I've been thinking about you and praying all is well with you and your family. I can't believe Noah is 4!
Pretty cups, they always are. My favorite is the last one, followed by the pretty pink tree cup.

Sending hugs to you sweetie!
