CELEBRATING STILL WITH TEA CUPS!

Hello Ladies! It is time for Tea Cup Tuesday No. 113. It seems all of blogland party's on this day. Terri and I are so glad to be a part of the fun. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was a Mother's Day weekend. I literally had every meal out since Friday night. I was lucky enough to spent time with all my Grandchildren, my three children, my Mother, my sisters and very close family friends. We were all honored as Mothers and showered with gifts. I must admit, I am a little tired today. I hope that your Mother's Day was just as delightful. Whether we have our Mothers with us, or whether they have gone to be with the Lord, they are still very worthy of honor. I have a Mother-In-Law who has gone home to be with the Lord. I always miss her on Mother's Day!
I hope you are ready to share your beautiful cups this week. I am excited to share this beautiful, vintage, Haviland, Limoges, France. It is a lovely teal color and features a wonderful pale rose design. This cup is a demitasse with a great shape.
Cup No. 2 is a Bavarian trio. It was the very first cup I ever received. It came from my dear friend, and I blame her today for the passion I have for tea cups. I have been trying to thin out my collection, only keeping the cups I adore and it is so hard. Look at the lovely handle on this cup, it is also scalloped like lace. Love it!
Cup No. 3 is a Coalport. The shape of this cup really adds to it's unique beauty. The colors around the edges are so vivid. I have had this for years and really can't remember when I purchased it. I am usually pretty good at remember where or who gave the cup to me. (Maybe I should start eliminated the ones I don't remember, that will at least help me not to feel so old.) It is so hard because, each cup I have, I picked because I love it.
The last cup I am sharing is a Royal Albert. So pretty!
I am also listing this vintage SADLER STAFFORDSHIRE TEA POT ENGLISH COUNTRY TUDOR HOUSE on the website today. You may not believe this, or I have over 100 tea pots. It's time! Please take a peek, it is so cute. Sending hugs to all, Martha

I love to choose my favorite in each of your posts - today it was the Coalport, probably because of its shape.
You had a great Mother's Day weekend - now rest up!

So Happy you had a beautiful Mothers Day! My Prayers are directing to Terri so she can get up and Smell the Flowers. So Sad to be under the weather when the sun is shining so brightly!
Love all your pretty things today BUT I have my EYE on your half dolls! Although I DO collect dolls "I don't have a single half doll". Not that I haven't admired them SO DEARLY and been tempted so many times. Hmmmm, just haven't brought one home, "YET"! hehe, you know how that can be!
Thank you for sharing...
Big Squishy Hugs to you,
Donna

Hi Martha,
You always favour us with so many beautiful things!
I do love your cups but specially the Limoges one and the Bavarian trio .
You know, Mother's Day here in Portugal is celebrated on the first Sunday of May, so it was a week before yours.
But it's a great celebration whenever or wherever it takes place!

Oh my dearest Martha,

Thanks ever so much for your prayers and for your kind words; (if I could have gotten back to you sooner to thank you, I would have)..,

..,(we had an 'incredible time' as of late, so I was away from my computer, also it was crashing a lot. ~ As well, our internet service service was cutting in and out for 6 days now; thank God the repair man came for our entire street today and fixed a loose link/wiring)..,

Your prayers and kind, thoughtful words of understanding were deeply healing. It really meant the world and all, and yes.., Thank you so much for your kind encouragement and offer to allow me to email from time to time.~ Sometime I will email you. Thanks ever so much Martha.

I do also pray for the comfort of your dear SIL who is also childless, my heart goes out to her as well. Yes, I also feel as if I know your heart, even though I also have not met you either.

I am genuinely delighted by the heartfelt outpouring of appreciation of love towards all precious moms this mothers day. Glad yours was enjoyable dear lady..,It is deed a gift of God and good to know that you are loved!

I love all of your amazing teacups; especially the Coalport one. ~ In fact, not surprisingly, Teacup Tuesday and the whole experience of Tuesday Teatime in Blogland is on of the highlights of my week.

Thanks for hosting and I will keep dear Terri in my prayers for a speedy recovery, the dear lady.

Blessings, hugs and cheers from Wanda Lee
