Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 110! Can you believe we have been doing this so long? Hope you had a good week. Sorry for the late post. My Noah is having surgery and he had post opt today. So I had to watch Sophia. She loves me know and hugs me. PTL! It only took her 6 months. I have been a little under the weather. My blood sugar has been low since I have started exercising. (Yes, I am still exercising! I am so proud of myself.) I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Guess I am going to have to do the thing I hate to do and that is call the doctor. Yuk! I was complaining to my daughter today about how tired I get after exercising, she so sweetly reminded me that I had not exercised in 55 years! I guess it will take some time.
I have some fun cups to show you this week. Not sure I have ever shared them before. The first two cups I am sharing are both Limoges. They are so very different. This first one has a wonderful shape and is so wafer thin. It feels like my hands can just press too hard and break it. It is very old, so obviously, it is strong enough to survive. It is so beautiful.
This next cup, again is a Limoges, it too is vintage, but feels heavy and strong enough to do some damage if need be. This one as well as the first one is hand painted, with heavy gold gilding.
Cup No. 3 is a vintage Chintz. It is an antique Lord Nelson. You just can never get enough Chintz.
I was lucky enough to go to an Estate Sale this weekend. Didn't have a lot of money but I found these two items I just could not live without. The first is this beautiful, vintage rose, needlepoint pillow. Did I ever tell you I collect vintage, needlepoint pillows? Well, you guessed it I do. I have a lot of them. I take them out for different seasons. When I found this beautiful rose pillow I just had to have it. I was lucky enough to get it for $5. It is unbelievably beautiful. As someone dear to me said "Good, that is just what we need, one more pillow!" I just think you can never have enough pillows!
Well, here is Mr. Linky for this week.
I just have to share this last piece I purchased. It is a c 1900 Blue Flow tray! Not sure if I am going to keep this or sell it yet. I just think it is stunning!
I was planning to have a giveaway set up. We will have to wait until next week. Terri and I have been partying for over two years. We need to do something special. Don't forget to visit my dear friend, Terri. You will never be disappointed!
