TEA CUPS AND PRAYERS ABOUT SANDY!
Ladies, welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 138! I pray that you are all well and that the storm that is hitting the East Coast does not cause you too much hurt. It looks so bad on TV, I have to turn it off to give my mind a rest. I will pray daily for you that God has mercy. It almost seems wrong to do a post on Tea Cups when so many families are suffering, but I think too that it is almost better to do the things that are normal. I am praying this evening for all that have been hurt by this storm.
I have a confession to make. For the last 6 weeks or so I have been just a little off. (No jokes!) I told my daughter today, that I think I am finally feeling normal. I think that I have been under a lot of stress and did not even realize it. I usually love to decorate my home each month and this October, my home just did not seem normal, nothing looked right to me. So this week, I took all the Halloween things down, much to Noah's dismay, and put up November. Today I finished, except for the front porch (I don't want to world to know I have lost it, just you.) I feel so much better. I am not even sure why. I was a costume machine this month. Among my creations were Darth Vador, Princess Leia Organa, Jedi Luke Skywalker, The Hulk, and a Gypsi. I love to make people happy, but on top of that I made a Crown for Sophia and was in charge of a huge 90 Anniversary for our church! It was a formal luncheon. Oh, did I tell you I started to Homeschool this lovely young lady 3 days a week. She is the sweetest thing. You can see why I was having a melt down and did not even realize it, until it was over! I am so sorry. I feel like I just had been going through the motions to survive.
I have a some fun cups to share with you today. This first one is a vintage, Shelly. To me it does not even have to look of a Shelly, maybe that is why I like it so much. It is so different.
My next cup is a Johnson Brothers, The Friendly Village, The Ice House. Love this cup. It just screams Thanksgiving!
The last cup I am sharing is a demitassi, Hand Painted, Made in Japan cup! I think it is so cute!
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. As usual Terri has something fabulous to share with us, so pop over and say Hi. If you look on my side bar you will notice the new Shabby Lanes Magazine. I was asked again to contribute. I feel so honored. I am told you can find the magazine at Michael's now. If you are interested, just press the link or I can let you know how to get it. It has so much useful information. I will continue to pray for your safety this week.
