Hi: I am back! Happy New Year Ladies! It seems I have been AWOL for a couple of weeks. I think this is the very first time I have done that. It is a long story, but one that will has to wait. I ask only that you would keep our family in prayer, it seems we are all going through one thing or another. I know God will give us Grace to see it though. I have read all your New Year's Resolutions in the past few weeks. Mine is to work on learning to give more forgiveness and grace to others. So much of America's problems would could be avoided if everyone just practiced these two things.

Along with celebrating Tea Cup Tuesday No. 149. This month marks my Five Year Blog Anniversary! I would have never thought that I would be blogging for five years. My life will never be the same because you. I have made life long friends that have changed my life forever. To celebrate this big event, I am having a give away! (Did you hear I won Terri's give away?) I have only been trying for years, YEAH! (Thank you my dear friend!) This give away is open to followers only. Every time you comment on my Blog, Facebook or Pretty Vintage Things website, you will have your name entered. The drawing will be held at the end of the month. I do hope you like it. It is a vintage Sadler Tea Pot!

This week I am going to share some wonderful tea cups that I will be selling for a friend on my website, Pretty Vintage Things. I had a problem with coveting some of these beauties. If you see any you like, let me know, I do give discounts to friends.

This first one is a pretty Lefton China footed teacup with gold trim. I believe it is a green chintz pattern. The background looks like green crackle, and has all over flowers of blue, orange, yellow, and purple with green
leaves. I am a big Chintz lover, so this one is just what the doctor ordered.

The next one is Lefton. I love pedestal teacups. This one is hard for me to resist. It has a 50's look to it.

This next cup is a also a Royal Albert from the Hyde Park Series. I love the teal color and the pink roses.

This last one is Royal Sealy, Japan. Love the pink color with the lusterware back and cute little feet.

Here is Mr. Linky for this week. (I HAVE TAKEN OFF THE LINKY TO SEE IF THAT FIXES MY COMMENT PROBLEM. LINK UP AT TERRI'S, I WILL CHECK YOUR TEA CUPS FROM THERE THIS WEEK.) Looking forward to getting back to visiting and seeing all your pretty tea cups. Don't forget to visit Terri. She has faithfully kept the party going. Today, we talked on the phone for the first time, she has the sweetest voice! Thank you so much for five faithful years. I feel so blessed to have you in my life. Have wonderful week.

Blessings to all. Martha

Today I am joining these tea parties!

Hi Martha,
So glad that you are fine and back blogging again. I did pray for you and your families though I did not leave comment previous days.

It must be nice working on an English garden and making your home comfortable.

Keep up the good work and take care!

The tea cups are wonderful and I am down sizing some of my collections also. The chintz one is my favorite of the ones you have pictured

I think every family I know has some difficulties in them , health related
