FOR THE LOVE OF FAMILY & TEA CUPS!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 123! It almost does not seem right to talk about tea cups today. My heart has been broken because of what has happened in Colorado this weekend
My son, Kyle, went to Batman on Saturday. It made me nervous. Can you just imagine sending your children to a fun time at the movies and your life changes forever? Feeling helpless, all I can do is pray for the families and pray for our Country. We need to turn our hearts to God.
I had the Princess Maya this week again and we went to see the Cleopatra Exhibit. Before we left we had a little bet about whom was the most beautiful, Cleopatra or Maya. She was very worried and looked very hard to see if we could compare. She was unaware that there are no pictures or statues of her. They were all destroyed. So we compared her to this statue and voted, Princess Maya had to be the fairest, after all, Maya still has a head. It was so much fun playing with her. The Exhibit might have been a little over her head, but it was a fun time with her anyway.
I will continue to share green cups with you today. There is something so soothing about the color green. It has been in the 80's here, that is hot for Los Angeles, so it also helps keep things feeling cool. The first cup I am sharing today is a Mustache Cup. It reads "Think of me", it is Bavarian. The cup is also Lusterware, however some of the Luster is gone. It still is a favorite just the same.
Cup No. 2 is a Paragon, remember the one I told you I purchased this last week? It is was purchase at a Thrift Store for $6.00. I love the golden color on this one.
I do not think I have ever shared a picture of my dining room. So I thought I would do that this week. Since, I am feeling unsure that tea cups are appropriate today. I hope you don't mind. If you think of it, please pray for me, I guess I am not coping with this as well as I should be. (I never do!) I think I just need a good hug too! Anyway, I don't think I have shown you my dining room since Christmas.
I am currently hosting two Japanese visitors in my home. They speak very little English and I speak no Japanese. So it is interesting, they will be here two weeks. They seem so sweet to me, Ayako and the little girl is Ericka. We spend a lot of time smiling. She has a great smile, it blesses my heart.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Sorry for the melancholy post. I will do better next week, I promise.
Have a wonderful week. Hugs your family just a little extra today. Here are my hugs to you! Martha
