Hi Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 125! As you can see, I am very late with my post this week. Please forgive me. I will make my post short and sweet, I promise. As many of you may know I have had Japanese exchange visitors in my home for the last 2 weeks. Monday was the big "good-bye" party. We were treated to a barbeque and a beautiful program featuring the Japanese culture and foods. It was a long day and this morning we sent them off to LAX This is the first time I have had my home and my time to myself. It must say, it was a wonderful experience. I had the honor of introducing one young man to the Lord! He was a Buddhist and I feel so blessed to have lead him to Jesus. All the long hours and drives were worth it for this one young man.

I was lucky enough to find a couple of very pretty tea cups this week while I was out and about. This first one is a beautiful Duchess tea cup with roses. What is it about roses that make us love them so much? Did I ever tell you I collect pictures of roses? Well I do! I will share some with you today, because I have a lot of them already in the camera. But first, the Duchess Tea Cup. It is made in England by a smaller, less famous company, yet there is no mistaking the high quality of their pieces.

This next cup is a Mudd Pie. It is really ceramic, not porcelian, I just love the roses on this cup. It did come with the sugar & creamer as well as the tea strainer. Very cute!

These next pictures are of one of the many rose picture frames I have around my home. I love roses.

Here is the linky for this week. Thank you for your faithfulness. Have a great week! Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha....I love roses, too. They are the #1 most popular flower, I read. Lovely new cups and rose pictures! Glad your visitors came and are now gone. It's so NICE to have the house back to yourself, isn't it? I LOVE privacy. Susan

Such pretty teacups, but even more precious, your time with Japanese exchange students. We have hosted many exchange students for japan over the years and although it makes for a busy time, it is so well worth it!

Love the teacups, especially the "mudd pie" one. I love all things roses also.

Hi, Martha. I'm glad to see that you posted for tea time. I love the Duchess, but my favorite is THE MUDD PIE all because of those beautiful little roses. It just looks so sweet. I'm glad you had the experience with the Japanese exchange visitors. It is especially wonderful that you had time to talk about our Lord. I am thankful that his heart was open. God is good.

bem vinda ao meu blog, é a primeira vez que me junto ao outro blog e foi um prazer, adoro porcelanas e artesanato.

Witnessing to your guest is the most important thing you can do. Hurray!

I just discovered "Duchess". The funny thing is that I discovered it with a cup just like yours, but a tennis set. It is so lovely that I simply had to blog about it before putting it into the shop.

Your rose pictures are very beautiful. Antique flower pictures cannot be had in this area for love nor money. You are blessed.

Praises again for you and your guest!

I have a favorite teacup from Mudd Pie in blue. It is actually a teapot sitting on the saucer and the lid for the pot becomes the cup. I am so bummed that the teacup part broke.

I have been working on my English garden for 14 years and I doubt if it will ever be finished.
