TEA CUPS AND SOME NEW CONFESSIONS!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 122. I hope you have had a change to visit some of the ladies that were involved in Karen Valentine's party, Where Women Create! There are some amazing craft rooms to see. I seriously did some coveting this weekend, and I am just in the "C's". I am going to have to do some serious repenting before this is all over. It will probably take me all week to see it all.
This weekend I did a yard sale with my daughter. I do not like doing them because it is so much work getting ready. However, since I need to prove that I am not a hoarder (to myself at least), I spent the week getting ready for the big event. I decided to just work on one room, thinking I have enough in any room to avoid making a mess in the entire house. Much to my dismay, I found collections I had forgotten about! (Don't say a word, I know!) I am just going to tell you about one, as I begin to cope with the new found treasures. I collect(ed) vintage salt & pepper shakers, lots of them. You really need to pray for me. I am not a Hoarder! Some of them are very cute and others, who knows what I was thinking. I will be selling them on my website, if you are a collector. I also found a huge amount of antique post cards. (Why, Martha, why?) It was so hot this weekend, I made more work than money.
My cups this week are in the green colors. This first one is an Aynsley. It was a gift from my sister-in-law. One of the most favorites gifts she has ever given me. Love the daisies, they are her favorite flower. It has a corset body with hand painted pedals all over it. Just stunning!
The 2nd cup is Paragon. I love the muted, mint green color on this cup. The Paragon has become one of my favorite designers. I found a new Paragon this week that I will share next week with you. They have such stunning designs.
This next cup I purchased this week for $1.49. It reminds me of Rachel Ashwell's taste in tea cups. It is unsigned, very delicate and thin. Love the pretty pink roses. This cup is handpainted. Notice the two lady bugs figurals? I found a whole collection of them this week that I forgot all about. Apparently, I have all kinds of bugs in pins & broochs. I am in so much trouble.
Here is Mr Linky for this week. Terri and I thank you for your faithfulness each week.
I have added a few pictures of my front yard that just looks beautiful right now. Have a wonderful week! Sending lots of hugs, Martha
