TEA CUPS AND ROSES!
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
