Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 111. Hope you are all doing well and have your tea cups ready for another fun week. I have been doing better, however, Noah's big surgery day is Wednesday. Please pray for him and the rest of us. I get teary eyed just thinking about him. My daughter, who had surgery over a week ago, is doing wonderful. Thank you for your prayers. One more to go! I will be watching Sophia that morning. Thank God she loves me know! She even hugs me! She will help me be sane that morning.
As I promised you last week, I am having a give away! It will end in the last Tuesday in May. Noah will do the honors! I am giving away a tea cup that is California Pottery. It is bright yellow, perfect for the coming Summer. To be included in this give away. You need to do one of the following, follow me on Facebook, sign my guest book on Pretty Vintage Things and of course, be a follower. Let me know in the comment what you have done. You will get your name in the hat for each thing you do. Enter as often as you like.
I know I am late again this week. I have still be exercising, (just call me a Jock) so I am going to have to change the time I write my blog. I come home so tired. I try to do better next week. The first tea cup I would like to share with you is an Aynsley. Love the handle and the simple outside design. You can spot an Aynsley right away. Love the way the scallops turn into hearts.
Cup No. 2 is a Royal Albert. The pattern name is "Rosedale". It looks like a Rosedale, is a perfect place to live. The red flowers are enameled.
My next cup is a Paragon. It is part of an Antique Series, pattern name "Georgian". I am not sure the pictures show the pleated edges of this pattern. It is very vintage looking, just beautiful.
This last cup is Foley Bone China. It always reminds me of Terri. It is just her style don't you think? A beautiful teal color with lots of gold gilding. The saucer is almost bowl shape. Love the handle.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week Thank you for your faithfulness. I love Tuesday in blogland, so much to see. Here is some vintage costume I will be listing this week! Have a wonderful time partying!
Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha,
Once again, you have shared some wonderful teacups! I'm glad all is well and surgeries are going well too. Take care, my friend.

I pray for you and that the surgery will go well for Noah. I read with relief that your daughter is recovering well from surgery. Teacup from Aynsley's so sweet. The lovely blue color appeals to me a lot. On your Georgian cup is the foxglove flowers that catches my eye. Foly Bone is a very aromatic cup with its gilding and rich ornaments. Bless you and your family! Zinnia

I have "liked" your page on FB...not to be included in your drawing...just cause I love you and want to!!

I'm quite sure Sophia gives you hugs!! Who wouldn't want to give you a hug!!

What's up with Noah? Hope his surgery is a complete success and that he recovers quickly.

Have a great day.

Love and hugs,

Oooh I think my favorite this week is between the Anysley and the Foley! Wow, they are stunning. And the others are very beautiful as well.
I am keeping Noah in my heart and wish for his very best outcome and recovery.
