Hello ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 106! Hope you all had a wonderful week. Thank you for your prayers, I am feeling so much better. Had a very busy week, the craft class went beautifully. Had a very large turn out which made it that much more fun. I still have not put everything back from the class. I was so exhausted, will have to start that processes today. Saw Princess Maya in her first play. She smiled from ear to ear the whole time she was on. I personally think she was the best actor in the program. That's all I am going to say about that!
I am so happy to announce that I have been published in the Shabby Lanes Shops Magazine for this quarter. You can purchase it at places like Joann's Fabrics or Micheal's. I think that all the book stores are carrying it now. My tea cups were featured and of course, this great Tea Cup Tuesday Party! I was so excited!
Have some fun cups to share with you this week. This first cup is one I recently purchased. Rarely buy tea cups these days, for various reasons you already know, but I could not resist this one. It is Foley Bone China, England. The pattern name is Century Rose. Found it at a thrift store in Pasadena. It was a thrift store that looked like an antique store, but with thrift store prices. The cup is so beautiful. Love the roses that cover the inside of the cup.
This next cup is not really a tea cup, but a bouillon cup. It is a Haviland, Limoges. As you know Limoges is my favor tea cup maker. Just look at the design on this. The saucer is almost shaped like a small bowl. One of my favorite cups to bring out in the Spring. The small flowers are enameled, stunning!
Cup No. 3 is this Stanley, from England. I love cups with extra large roses and this one feel like you can just put your nose against it and smell the flowers.
This next cup is Lusterware. I would guess it is Made in Japan, although unsigned. I collect portrait cups and just fell in love with this one a few years ago. It is not really a high quality cup, it's just beautiful to me. I picked this one up for $1.49 and I love it!
The last cup is a Stroke on Trent, Point One, from England. It is very delicate china with a heavy gold and silver leaf design. Just look at that handle, It really does not photograph as beautiful as it really is.
I am so glad you could join us again this week. Here is our Linky. Terri as usual has a beautiful cup to share with us. Please visit her, when you get a chanceI want to end with a picture of Sophia and Noah. She is sitting in a high chair, eating food already. What happens to time? I keep reminding myself to take in every moment I can with them, they grow up so quickly. When you are young and raising your children, you do not realize this. I try to tell Vanessa to take it all in while she can. Time just moves so fast. Have a wonderful week.
