WELCOMING SPRING WITH TEA CUPS!
Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 105! As I start this post I write with a heavy heart. This week three of my friends have lost someone they loved dearly. One was a young pastor of mine who had a massive heart attack at age 55. It is hard to deal with that much grief. Mexicans believe death come in threes. That is what happen this week, weird huh? My heart is also heavy for two of my children. One is getting ready to go into surgery while this other is weighting out a life changing decision. No matter how old, they never stop being our children and I am still wishing I can just give them a kiss to make it all better. Also on my heart is my dear sister-in-law will also be heading for the operating table in a few weeks, for a very serious surgery. I ask for your prayers for us this week as we seek God's direction and the peace that only He can give us.
Easter is coming and next to Christmas, it is my favorite holiday. Christ and His Resurrection Power! I take comfort in that He will never leave me nor forsake me, regardless of what is going on around me. My Princess Maya was 9 years old this week. She will be making her acting debut in a community theatre this weekend. She is going to be in the WIZ! I am so proud of her. I will try to get as many pictures and I can to share with you next week.
I will be sharing some Easter Tea Cups with you this month for your viewing pleasure :) ! Did I ever tell you I collect Easter Rabbits? Well, you guessed it, I do! I am going to try to feature some the next few weeks. The very first cup I am sharing is this gorgeous Aynsley. It was giving to me by my sister-in-law and it is just one of my favorite cups. It has a daisy design which is her favorite flower. Amazing, don't you agree?
Cup No. 2 is this Queen China, English Chintz. The colors of this tea cup are very different, you don't see Chintz cups without roses or in greens and yellows to often. My Mother purchased the cup that for me, years ago.
Cup No. 3 is a Royal Chelsea, Made in England also. It just screams Easter! Love the colors on this one.
My home is always so filled with different colors these next three months. Spring to me just says only different pastel colors will do.
My last cup for this week is a Limoges. It is a Haviland, France my favorite. I don't have very many Limoges that are not in the pink colors so this one is rare for me. Love the delicate design that only Limoges can do. My every day dishes are Limoges the design of the dish is the same however, my dish set is in the classic all white. I have a service for 15 and every time I pick up a dish to use, it makes me feel so special. As a fun note, I picked up this rather large serve for $1.49 a piece about 5 years ago at the thrift store. God was smiling at me that day!
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. I can't wait to see what Terri has in store for us after her recent trip. I did not get around to visiting a lot of you last week because of what was going on here at home. I will make it all up to up this week I promise. I have been selected to teach a craft at a Women's Conference at our church. It is my very first. I will be making Tussie Mussies. I am so looking forward to it. Like I told you, I am addicted to Pinerest and I have found may fun example there. Wish me luck. I have a large group signed up to take my class. Pictures next week.
Have a wonderful week. Hugs to all! Martha
