TEA CUPS AND EVERYTHING ELSE!
Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 126. This post is going to be all over the place. It is hot! Can't seem to make myself go outside, except to water by poor plants. It is suppose to get a little better this week. I hope that is true. I hate the heat! Being inside a lot causes me to look inward. (I usually don't like what I see.) Do you ever have that happen to you? Thinking deep things like, why do I find some things so beautiful?
Why do bugs and earthquakes scare me? Do others think I am crazy? When you have blogged as long as I have, who you are is very clear. You really can't fake it. Why do I love tea cups? Why do I hate to cook? I am sure glad I don't get deep very often. It gives me a head ache. I have been going through my home looking at the things that make me feel good just to look at. As you have probably figured out, roses give me great comfort. Why? I don't know. The Lord calls Himself "The Rose of Sharon," even God loves roses.
Did I ever tell you I scrapbook? Well, I do! I have so much stuff I could open my own store. I took a class this weekend to learn how to do "pop up" cards. It was so much fun. I decided to open my home up for weekly scrapping parties. Anything to keep me from deep thinking! This is what I did this weekend. I hope you can tell that they are 3 dimensional. If you are in my area on Wednesday, email me, and join our scrapbook gathering.
On to tea cups! Here is my first tea cup. It is an Aynsley. I love this set. It reminds me of my daughter, Vanessa. I have the tea pot with the sugar and creamer. It has two cups to this set, just beautiful!
My next cup is this simple pink depression glass. I love depression glass, especially the pink color. Ok, that's not completely true. I love the green, the cranberry, the yellows, blues and amber colors too.
Can you see the differences between the two cups depression cups? Look at the edges on this next set.
The last cup I am sharing is a Limoges. You know how I feel about Limoges. I want you to take a look at the plate on this one. It took me months, about 10 years ago to pay for this set on lay-away. (The only way my husband would let me have it.) It is a service for 12. It is breathe taking! My daughter Vanessa wants it, when I go home to be with the Lord.
Well, ladies, here is Mr. Linky for this week. I will try hard to get a give away together for next week. Please visit my dearest friend and partner in tea cup partying, Terri. She is always so ready to show you something beautiful!
Please visit my website, Pretty Vintage Things. I have listed a lot of new items this past week. Try to keep cool. Hugs, Martha
