Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 127! Hope you have had a good week and that the weather has been better in your area. We are still hot, but getting better! My week was amazing! I had a lot of creative time, which is always good for the soul. I spent the week moving around my bedroom to make more room for things. I like to change things around. I think I could still use another couple of bedrooms but, it is what it is. I have started crafting for the Holidays. Everyone loves to get handmade things, I just need to work faster.

I have some wonderful cups to share with you today. My first cup is a Royal Albert. I think I have seen it in a few parties before, I just love it. The colors are wonderful for Autumn for those of us who must drink in the proper color tea cup for the season :). Love the gold and the way the pedestal is designed. Just lovely! This cup is new to me.

Cup No. 2 is a Paragon. I am a big Paragon fan, it is so regal. The large Mums are a rich plum, pink, and yellow. This cup was also a fun new purchase this weekend. I really scored this week.

My last cup is a Candlewick, Depression Glass. I have a rather large collection of Candlewick, most of it given to me by my Mother-in-Law, Twila. It always reminds me of her.

If you take a peek again at the top of the post, I am having a give-away. This is the cup I have choosen to use. The cup is a Queen Anne, from England. The pattern name is "Nottingham Lace". Colors on this cup are vivid with a beautiful gray and white lace background. I have also added some bling for you. What would life be like without a little bling? What do you have to do to enter you ask? Simple, just do one of the following: be a follower, "Like" me on Facebook or leave a comment on my website. Each one you do will give you another chance at this great cup. Enter as often as you like. Just let me know on the comments. I will have Noah pick a winner on September 24th. That's the day after my birthday! The give away is my way of saying thank you, for stopping by!--the lurkers, pinners, party ladies, friends, family, followers and commenters—you are all awesome!

Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Looking forward to what you have to share this week. Terri has had some amazing give aways, don't forget to take a peek at her blog.

Hugs, Martha

Howdy Martha,
I love that Queen Anne's cup at the top with the lace and orchids I believe they are. It is different than any teacup I have and I would appreciate being included in the drawing. Thank you.
As you can see, Lady B and I have a giveaway too. It is our first one. I only made it two weeks and I see you have made it a month. I wonder if I should have done that too??? Come visit us.

RockMom said...

I have just come upon your blog via Pinterest. I always try to visit the original sites of things I post so the rightful owner can be credited. I am so happy I did this time.
I love teacups. I used to go to our little local 2nd hand store just to grab the latest and finest of the old tea cups.
Right now all my cups are packed cause hubby and I moved back to California a while back.
You inspire me to go 2nd hand shopping again.
Thanks for the post!
Take care!
