A CHRISTMAS MESS FOR TEA CUP TUESDAY!


Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 142! I hope all my dear friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am still eating turkey. My Thanksgiving was delightful. When Noah came in he ran to the kitchen and said "Grandma, I am so excited about Thanksgiving Dinner. I just want to remind you, I don't like, turkey, mash potatoes, gravy, stuffing or green beans. Otherwise, I will take everything else!" He was so sweet and happy about his Thanksgiving Dinner at Grandma's. Grandma was in deep trouble. It is always a blessing to have all my children and grandchildren together. My son-in-law comes in and just helps out in the kitchen. It is wonderful.



I have started to decorate for Christmas. When I decorate, my home looks like a tornado hit it. I have bins everywhere and half of everything is Thanksgiving and the other half the beginning of Christmas. It takes me all week to finish decorating. I hate that about me. I put something up and then change it again until I have it just the way I like it. On Wednesday, I am in charge of "decking the halls" at church so, my week is full and it just started. I have to confess the pictures you will see today are of December, 2010. I am hoping you will not remember them or mind a re-run. I have not put out my Christmas cups yet and besides that, like I said, everything is a MESS!



So here is a peek, let's just pretend, I have my act together! This great cup is a Royal Grafton. It is a beautiful. Love the red rose center.



My second cup is a Royal Stafford. It looks a lot like the first one only this one has a real deep red color to it. They are both beautiful. I love bring out red cups at Christmas time. Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Have a wonderful time peeking at all the wonderful homes and tea cups our friends are sharing today. Terri, I am sure will have something wonderful to share.





Haave a wonderful week! Blessings, Martha

Aren't grandkids fun??!! I had one that for years, wouldn't eat anything he called "green" which wasn't so much color as texture. He didn't like crunch! He finally grew out of it at about 14. But...love, is love! Who said ya gotta be organized???? If so...I'm in big trouble! Love your teacups, of course!

Hi Martha,
how nice when a family not only gather together for good food and events but also for work. That makes a real family that everybody helps. You must be a wonderful mother that you got them to that. Noah's quote made me laughing. How cute is that. Thank you that you had time to make a tea party although you have so much work.
Best greetings, Johanna

Little Noah is too cute, Martha! I love your red teacups. They are both so festive and magical for Christmas. Thanks for sharing and have a delightful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hello Dear Martha...Oh, I can identify with the mess 100 percent. I think most of us can!

Yesterday we got the tree entirely decorated but there are the boxes, the bags and mess still to be cleaned.

And I am not home today! Guess where I am? Taking care of my 8 week old beautiful baby granddaughter....my first! So I left the mess and who cares? I'll get to it eventually, as you will, too.

Take care, dear Martha. Susan

Hello Martha,
It does get messy before it gets better : )
I am still in the mess part of it too. But having fun.
I am so glad you had such a great Thanksgiving. I hope Wednesday goes well with decking the halls at church.
All three tea cups are stunning, three perfect cups for the holidays.
Hugs,
Terri

Both of your red teacups are grand! I tell myself I'm going to get ONE thing done a day for Christmas decorating and so far, I've been able to stitch to *my* schedule ... although I seem to be slowing down today! Happy Tea Day and thanks for hosting!

Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday bringing families together with FOOD! And if you're blessed with grandkids, even better!
Your red teacups are gorgeous! I'm going to have to go searching for some red cups for Christmas. They look so festive!
Have a wonderful week!

I love your blog and the beautiful photos. I have delayed getting back into my tea cup desires since I plan a major move soon. However, after seeing how beautiful you display your tea cups I went ahead and ordered 2 beautiful new ones so I can enjoy them now and ship them when I move. You are a blessing, Nancy Carr

Martha,

I too feel as t hough tornado hit my home! Plus I have been gone for two day mostly all day with various doctor's appointments and such so I feel like I am going about it EXTRA SLOW on this season!

However, when I got home it was almost tea time, so I make a nice hot cuppa, grabbed some Christmas pretties and took a couple photos to share today - seems like forever since I have!

Sorry I am late, but my heart was here earlier!

Hugs!

Michele

That Royal Grafton teacup is well worth a repeat performance, I love it !

I hope you're able to enjoy the decorating Martha, and by the way, what DID Noah eat at your Thanksgiving table ?
