TEA CUPS & ELECTION DAY! GOD BLESS AMERICA!




Hi Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 139! What a week this country has had. I want to thank everyone that let me know you are alright. I am so glad we have the worst behind us. Of course our prayers are still with you. I know so many have lost their homes and others are still without lights. I am going to save for a generator, it looks like that has helped so many. I live in Earthquake Country. I thought we might have a low turn out last week, but instead you came out strong. There is so much to say about just doing the things we normally do.



This first cup I am going to share with you is a Lefton. It is a beautiful hand painted, pedestal cup. Just take a peek at that handle.




I want to show you some fun very rare Lefton's from Japan wall plaques. One is Mother Goose and the other is a Witch. They are so pretty. I have them up on my website. Totally forgot I had these. Just had to share them before they sold. I am trying to thin things out for my children's sake.



My next tea cup is English Hammersley & Co. It features some beautiful buttercups throughout the middle of the cup. It too, has a small pedestal base. So cute!




The last cup for this week is this stunning Chintz Paragon. This cup is breathe taking.





Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Terri has a beautiful new cup to share with you. I love all the great cups you shared last week. Looking forward to what you are going to share today!


Praying for your safety and good health. May God Bless our Country and give us Wisdom to vote. Hugs, Martha

Beautiful cups Martha. I love how different they all are. The Hammersley is really beautiful, and the gold one too....all of them are lovely.
Do you use your beautiful cups every day? I try to rotate mine so they all get some use.
Those Lefton wall plaques are really something! Such art!
Hugs,

Martha all the cups are just gorgeous and I love your plates and that wall plaque of mother goose is just darling. What treasures!!! I came from Pink Saturday and saw the photo there. It just beckoned me to come. And I'm so glad I did. It's always a pleasure to visit your blog.
