Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 141! Hope your week is going well. I know we are all busy getting ready for our Thanksgiving Dinner. We actually have two Thanksgiving Dinners to eat. First with our children for lunch and then they go off to their Mother-In-Laws homes and we go off to my Mother's. A very busy, and full day with lots of food and family. We start early and end late. I feel so blessed to be able to have family to share this special day with. The best part is that I love them all so much.

My week here has been awful! My car was in the shop for a large car repair, and on Sunday night we had a rain storm. I was home alone and the storm blow some breakers so I had to do out in the middle of the night and try to figure out which ones had tripped. Finally got it going, however, in the morning I realized that my tank less water heater had also blown a fuse or something. So I am waiting for the electrician to arrive Tuesday morning, so we can have hot water again. Talk about stressful. Not quite sure what went wrong, I just hope it is cheap to fix. Please pray that it is, I have Property Taxes due in a few weeks.

I have some pretty tea cups to show you today, starting with this Bavarian, all Gold tea cup set. It is so pretty and feels wonderful to drink out of.

This next cup, I sure you have guessed it, is a Paragon. It has this very subdued tan color and design. I love the roses on it.

I have been blessed to meet wonderful ladies, like Terri, who is so special to me. I wish you all the blessing God has for you. I want you to know how grateful and thankful I am to know each of you.
My hopes are that God will continue to grant you all the blessings He has for you.

Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Please visit as many ladies as you can. I know we are all very busy this week.

Lots of hugs, Martha

Oooo, Martha - when it rains it pours - no pun intended! May you know the Lord's hands lifting you up in the repair of all these things - not the least of which the taxes where I think we can all concur.

Love the Paragon tan rose cup - that would get a prize spot in my tea cabinet to be sure!

Be ye overflowing in Thanksgiving this week for all the goodness of the Lord!
