TEA CUPS AND FAMILY, CAN IT GET ANY BETTER?
Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 119! I know I am very late, sorry. My day got away from me. Hope you are all having a wonderful early summer. I know for many of you, fires have been in the front of your mind. I am so sorry, I am praying for you. It is hard to think of the simple things when friends are suffering such devastation. Sometimes, however, doing what you normally do is the best medicine. Please know you are not alone.
I have started my weekly, one day of watching Princess Maya. I have been so thrilled to have her. On Wednesday I will be taking both Maya and Noah to the movies to see Brave. Never taken them both alone, it should be a lot of fun. I must confess, I take a good nap when they have all gone home. Last week we went swimming at my sister home.
I do want to start sharing my cups. I am late and don't want to be left out of the festivities. My first cup is a vintage Coalport. Just look at how this cup is crinkled like you would do paper. Lovely!
Cup No. 2 is a antique, Bavarian trio. This is the set that started it all, about 25 years ago. It was given to me my a dear friend. It was love at first sight. Because of this cup, I have not stopped collecting and now own about 500 sets. (I am not a Hoarder, I am thinning out! Keep calm!) I am only keeping the best of the best and precious gifts from dear friends, of course. As you can see, I am doing so much better than then when we first met! (Say, yes, Martha, you are doing so good!) Thank you!
Cup No 3 is a Royal Albert, from England. It is call "Forget Me Not." It is so pretty and don't you just love the blink?
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Please visit Terri, I have already done so and her cups are beautiful, as usual!
I am happy to announce that I have been featured in the Shabby Lanes Magazine. You can find it at Target or email me and I will direct you to the site where you can purchase it. It is a fun new magazine and I am proud to be a regular part of it.
Have a wonderful week ladies. I will continue to pray for the safety of your homes. Hugs, Martha
