TEA CUP TUESDAY SALUTES OUR VETERANS!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 140! I do hope you are all well and that things are beginning to get back to normal for most of you. I must confess, due to the Veteran's Holiday, I forgot it was time to post our Tea Cups. My children were over today, keeping me so entertained. Sophia has begun taking many bold steps. She is so tiny, it is so funny to watch her walk. We took a trip to Stats today with the kids. For those of you who do not know about Stats, it is a must see store here in Pasadena. They had the store decorated so amazingly. The kids just loved it and the fact that, free cookies were part of the bargain just sweeten the deal! You get to see so many ideas for Christmas decor all in one huge store. As always lots of fun, but I am tired this evening.
I have three large parties to plan before the second week of December is over, so I must get myself in full Christmas mode. Today's cups may be the last Thanksgiving cups you will see until next year. I am sharing with you only Haviland, Limoges cups this week. The first cup is an amazing Haviland, Limoges. It starts like a normal cup, but the wow part, comes with the saucer which is shaped like a flower. This is a stunning cup and an all time favorite of mine. You can see why!
This next cup is also a Haviland Limoges. It is a very large cup, maybe used for a coffee cup. I hope you can see the handle and the beautiful craftmanship that has gone into this cup. The cup, of course, has been hand painted like only Limoges can do it.
This last cup is a simple Limoges. No fancy anything, expect maybe the top of the handle almost looks like eyes are looking back at you. I think this vast difference in Limoges' styles are just one of the reasons why I love all Limoges cups. Each one is so amazing all on its' own.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. I just heard from Terri and she has a planning to show you another beautiful cup this week. I love how she pictures her cups. She has such a great eye for pictures and cups for that matter. Terri is an amazing friend. Although we have never met, I love her so dearly, I feel like we are family. Please take the time to visit her today.
Here are a few more pictures of vignettes around my home. Looking forward to visiting everyone. I love looking at all your pretty things. May God bless our Veterans who serve our Country so bravely and their families, who give more than we will ever know. Hugs, Martha
