HONORING FATHERS AND ADDING TEA CUPS!
Hi Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 118! I hope you had a wonderful Father's Day Weekend. Father's Day is always a little melancholy for me. My Father has gone to be with the Lord and I don't think I miss him more than on Father's Day! I was blessed to have such a wonderful Dad. We celebrated and honored the Father's in our family. It was a very peaceful day. Here is a picture of Princess Maya in the guest room. It seems like she is growing right in front of my eyes.
I have been busy changing decor around the house as well as making a Jedi Cape for Noah, who is now into Star Wars. Did I tell you I have started a Bible Study with the lady that lives in my back guest house? She has no knowledge of God and whom He is. She has never heard of any Bible stories or even the 10 Commandments. It has been a blessing to watch her desire to know more about Jesus grow. I feel, I am the one who is being blessed to tell her. I will keep you posted.
I will be sharing a couple of Red Transferware cups with you this week. I have always wanted a whole set of Transferware, however, so far, I have not been able to find them at a price I can afford. This first cup is a Mason's, Vista, England. Every time I have ever found Transferware in red, it always has a lot of crazing. Not really sure why. Maybe because they are so well used. The Blue Transferware does not seem to have as much crazing.
This pretty white tea cup trio is a Wedgewood. It features a rose garland design around the edge of each piece.
Cup No. 3 is a Adderlay also from England. I love the crisp white color with the slate blue design. This set is also a trio. I just love it. Not sure if I recently shared this one, anyway, it is worth a second look. Don't you just love the large Eagle brooch?
The last cup is from Palissy Pottery, England. The cup is call "The Source of the Thanks". Very beautiful rose pattern design. One of my favorites.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Thank you for sharing all your beautiful tea cups and stories with us each week. Terri and I look forward to them each week.
Looking forward to taking at peek at all your beautiful cups. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Martha
