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. Remember I give discounts to my followers are all the items I sell on my website Just send me a note.

Hugs, Martha

wow, Martha, congrats on your newest publish - that's GREAT news!

And your post and newest teacup - absolutely gorgeous. All your teacups are beautiful - but nothing is quite as beautiful as the pic of those sweet grands. Priceless!

You are SO RIGHT about time, and when younger not knowing the value of it - especially with babies. ah, the wisdom of age.

Lovely post, lovely lady!

Happy Tea Tuesday!!

You must be so proud of Princess Maya and how sweet your grandchildren are.

Have a lovely week

Terri said...

Oh Martha! You spoil us today with the most gorgeous selection of tea cups! Each one is beautiful, and I couldn't pick a favorite. The cups with the large roses are really something special! I can see why you love them so.
Noah and Sophie are adorable, and Maya looks so pleased with herself, and for good reason : ) I am sure she was the best in the play!

How exciting ... published!!!! Love your teacups and bling, but especially like the pink rabbit! Happy Tea Day!

Brenda said...

Hi, Martha. i really love your post today and congratulations on the magazine!! I can't wait to get a copy. There is a Joann's Fabrics near me. I'll have to take a look. I'm so happy for you.
You Princess is delightful! She has the most beautiful smile and I know you are very proud of her...and so you should be. I bet her performance was simply wonderful!
Your tea sets once again are GREAT! I do love the one with the bigger roses. I am finding these more and more attractive. Your portrait cup and saucer are just so beautiful. Such a great find.
I just can't believe your Sophia is already eating foods. It wasn't that long ago when you announced she was born. And I always love seeing little Noah. These children sure bring a smile!! The photo is so cute of them!
You are right about how time flies. Hold on to every moment and make lots of memories!

MomWaldsPlace said...

I look forward to your Tuesday post all week Martha. The Stanley is my favorite this time, although, as usual you made it very hard to choose.

I have been studying different shapes of cups, and the evolution of teacups. You have such a variety today I was able to test myself.

Your Little Miss looks like she had a splendid time. Your grandchildren are blessed to have such an involved and supportive grandmother.

Happy Spring!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Zinnia said...

I missed that it was possible to comment when I visited you last. Congrats to get published. You are so cute and lovely tea cups. Especially when there are flowers. I love it when there are patterns even inside the cup. So that I can see it when I drink my cup of tea. Or that the inside has an anna color than the rest of the cup. I wish you a wonderful weekend! Zinnia

Nann said...
