TEA CUP TUESDAY AND WE HAVE A WINNER!

Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 115! Hoping you had a great Memorial Day Weekend. Mine was very busy. We had a soldier come home from Afghanistan this week, so there was a big celebration. He is only 18 and has already seen war. It makes my heart so sad that this has happen, yet I praise God for young men like him who have made this great country free. I am proud of him and of all the great men who serve so willingly and give their lives that we may be free. My heart goes out to all the Mother's who have lost sons and daughters. I honor you and them today!
This first picture is a heart that Noah leaves on my dresser. He reminds me every time he visits that his heart is always with me. The first time he said that to me I tried so hard not to cry. As Mother's and Grandmother's our children are always in our hearts, no matter where they are. I wish mine could always be with me. Crazy huh? That's how I feel! Look how much Sophia has grown!
Anyway, I am in a good mood and ready for Tea. I will be sharing Chintz today. I know both Terri and I are late today, sorry. This first is a wonderful tea pot! It is a beautiful, antique, Lord Nelson, Chintz, stackable tea pot. Pattern name is "Rose Time." It was given to me by a missionary. I have had it for years.
This first cup is also a Lord Nelson, also very old. I just love the how the pattern is so vivid.
Cup number two is a Royal Standard. The flowers are a burgundy and violet. This cup is also vintage.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. From now on I will remove the linky on Sunday, it is causing some problems with my blogger. Sorry! We have a winner for my give away Journeyin' Lady. She is a new follower, who loves California Pottery, so this will be perfect for her. Please email me with your address.
These a few of fun things I picked up at an Estate Sale this weekend. The first one is the necklace. I just love it! Everything was under $10, I love that even more.
Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Martha

War is so incredibly awful but sometimes it's hard to avoid. In Afghanistan, the girls finally, thanks to NATO can go to school. He makes an important contribution to many. Awesome teapot. Cup number two is my favorite. I wish you a wonderful week! Zinnia

Hello Martha - so glad he came back safe. My son-in-law has only been home for a while, he hasn't told us everything - but I know he saw some terrible things. They are very dedicated to what they do and I truly appreciate them - they do need our prayers!
Love your chintz stacked tea set - gorgeous! Congratulations to your winner! I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
