THE BIRTHDAY, THE CROWN, THE TEA CUPS!






Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 135! I hope you are all had a great week and are ready to start our week sharing our amazing tea cups. Sophia celebrated her first birthday this weekend. She was being very cordial to everyone. I think she loved being the center of attention. She was held mostly by her Daddy, so she was happy. Her Uncle Kyle, who if you ever watched "The Seinfeld Show", we are sure he has "The Kavorka". He can attract any woman or child with just his smile. He was lucky enough to hold her attention the longest during the party. Remember I told you I was making her a crown? It came out very cute. She loved it for all of 15 seconds. :) It never stayed on her long enough for me to get a picture. She looked very cute and the family was all happy that she was in our lives. This crown was very easy and fun to make. I have sold a few on my website. They are a little on the costly side, but well worth it. I have posted some pictures at the bottom of the post for your to see!




I have some fun cups to show you this week. I want to start with the Chintz gold and rose Paragon. This yellow cup is stunning and is one of my all time favorites. I love the gold pattern on the inside of this set.



This next cup is a Hammersley, from England. I love the perfect buttercups flowers on this beauty.




Last but not least is this Lefton. I just think this cup is perfect. Love the high pedestal and the very ornate handle. The roses are all handpainted. I have to tell you, tea taste better in this cup. When I drink from it, I know I am having a great cup of tea! Things like this just happen with beautiful cups! :)





Well here is our Mr. Linky for this week. Looking forward to taking a peek at all your beautiful treasures. If you decide to try and make a crown, email me, if you get stuck.



Hope you have a wonderful week! Blessings and lots of hugs, Martha

Oh Martha she is such a CUTIE! What a precious sweet angel! And her Daddy is super handsome and happy and proud!

Your teacups are gorgeous.

Sorry you couldn't get a crown picture - maybe one day you shall.

Thank you for hosting!

Hello Martha,
I love your new Autumn look!
And all your tea cups too! Your Hammersley is shaped just like my Rosina! I have a Hammersley but not one shaped like yours. Beautiful!
I would have guessed it was Rosina and I would have been wrong!

Happy Birthday to your sweet Granddaughter! She is a real cutie!
Your crowns are gorgeous!
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Martha,
Sophia is such a cute little girl. No wonder that everybody is proud about her. The idea with the crown is gorgeous. She must have felt like a Queen.
Your tea cups are wonderful, worthy for a Queen, too. Thank you for sharing all the delights of your life. Have a blessed season.
Best greetings, Johanna

Miss Sophia looks like a princess and that first tea cup looks like her crown when she becomes Queen. (very sweet and adorable a yet regal at the same time)

Great crown there Martha.. this will be a keeper for years to come!

warm hugs,

Cotton Peony
