Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea cup Tuesday No. 132! I bet you were wondering where I was yesterday. I had doctor appointments all day yesterday and came home and fell asleep. So sorry! It looks like we have all begun our Autumn Season decorating. Things have finally begun to change in my home. Getting ready for the cool weather and of course the Holidays. I have been helping our church get ready for a 90 Anniversary. I want to make things look special for them, at the same time, I have my son, Kyle to help. I want to thank you for your prayers, unfortunately he did not score high enough to be hired. His score was a 95, that tells you how hard it is to be a Fireman in California. He was given the opportunity to reapply in January, 2013. In the meantime, his is working on his EMT Certification. Please pray for him, it is so hard.
As promised, we have a winner of our Tea Cup Contest. Drum roll please . . .Mom Wald of http://momwaldsplace.blogspot.com. If you do not know this lady, let me introduce you, she is amazing. She always leaves wonderful comments. (You know the kind that you like to re-read, that's her!) When you are sad, she always lifts you up. When you are happy she shares in your joys and encourages you on. I am so glad Noah (Ninja) was able to stop long enough to pull her name out of the hat. Mom Wald, please email me so I can send you our treasure. I plan to have another give away at the end of next month. (I have been watching Hoarders lately, so that always encourages me to give away or to sell.
My cups this week are so cute. This first one is one of my favorites. I had coveted this cup for years, but it was always too expensive. Finally, about 3 years ago, I found one at an Estate Sale in Pasadena. I was so excited. It is a beautiful gold inside the cup as well as on the saucer. It is an Aynsley of course. Don't you just love it?
This next cup is this cute demitasse cup from Japan. It has this little bird sitting on the handle. I just love this cup. I have owned it for years. I am sure it is not very valuable, but how can resist the birdie?
This last cup is an orange color Bavaria tea cup. Color is very bold, and to be honest, sometimes I love it and others times, I wondered what I was thinking when I purchased it. Today, I like it. (Don't say anything, I already know.)
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Again, sorry for being so late. Will be visiting you all this week.
Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Martha
