LARGE ROSE TEA CUPS FOR TEA CUP TUESDAY!



Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 151! Last week was so fun and so many of you joined in. Terri and I are very grateful. Terri worked long and hard to fix my Linky problem. She is so smart. I hope to start one of her classes very soon. Take a peek at the classes she offers, they are amazing. This is the last week to add your name to the hat for my teapot give away. All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog, Facebook or Pretty Vintage Things. Just let me know you want the teapot. Every comment gives you another chance to win.



A couple of weeks ago the magazine Shabby Lane Shops came out and I have a two page article in it. This is the fifth time I have been asked to contribute. My pastor's wife had picked up a holiday issue and she was surprised to find me in it. My articles are always on how to decorate with vintage treasures, definitely something I love to do. The magazines can be found at Target, Barnes & Nobles or you can order them through me, if you are interested. A lot of very talented ladies add to this magazine, ladies much smarter than I. I am sure you would love it.



The first tea cup I am going to share is this amazing Stanley, from England. I love large roses on tea cups. These roses look like they have just been pick from my garden.



The next one is a demitasse with a large rose design. I have a set of 6 they are from Germany. No other mark is on them. I have had them forever, not sure why I purchased them other than the large cabbage rose design. I have used them a few time as tiny vases. They look so very cute filled with roses.


The last cup I am going to share this week is this Taylor & Kent from England. It takes your breathe away for sure.



Have a wonderful week. I will be spending it with my Grandchildren, so I know it will be great. Sophia, called me on the cell phone and said "I lofe you Grama." I knew exactly what she was trying say! It made my day. You remember, she was barely talorating being in the same room with me a few months back? I knew if I just keep trying, she would love me. Have a wonderful week. Here is Mr. Linky. Blessings, Martha

Hi Martha, I would love to win that beautiful teapot, but as I am on the other side of the world it is a bit far to expect you to send it - and it might get damaged. So good luck to everyone who has entered your draw.
I absolutely love the demitasse cup and saucer, just gorgeous. Lucky you.
Have a good week,
Diana

Cynthia said...

HOLA MARTHA

GRACIAS POR VENIR A VISITARME A ARGENTINA.

ES UN HONOR PARA MI, HACE MUCHO QUE TE CONOZCO JUNTO CON TERRI POR MEDIO DE PRINCESA NADIE.

NUNCA ME ATREVI A DEJAR MENSAJE POR EL IDIOMA, YO NO TENGO PROBLEMA PORQUE PUEDO TRADUCIR, NO QUEDA PERFECTO PERO ENTIENDO BASTANTE.

YO NO PUEDO COMPARARME CONTIGO, NI CON TERRI NI CON NADIE DE TUS SEGUIDORAS CON RESPECTO A LAS TACITAS DE TÉ, PERO TRATO DE DARLE MI TOQUE PERSONAL Y POÉTICO PARA MEJORAR LA FALTA DE PORCELANAS.

UN BESO AMIGA.
ME QUEDO COMO SEGUIDORA.
BENDICIONES.

Dear Martha, thanks for your comment, I am honored of your compliments, since you're an experienced and refined collector. I always visit your blog to learn: it is only natural that your articles are published in magazines such prestigious.
I set to do some disclosure on the topic, because, at least for my readers, tea and beauty attached to it, are poorly understood. I have a nice little collection, and I decided to share it with everyone :-)

Dear Martha,
I don't know what is more worth: your publication in that beautiful magazine or the sweet words from Sophia. But both is worth to congratulate. We all know that you are a special collector with a wonderful collection and so much knowledge about each piece. I love how you decorate with the jewelrys and lovely vintage things. The article in that magazine is lovely to see, especially for people who are not introduced to blogs yet. They do not know what they miss.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Martha, such lovely posts! Carmelina will adore the soft pinks in the teacup and your thoughtfulness. She is very kind and deserving of this treasure! I will have to start collecting a few teacups so I can join your fun party! xo Pam

Johanna said...

Hi Martha,
I don't see a possibility to comment on the newest tea time, so I do it here. Carmelina will be delighted, I am sure. This tea pot is so lovely and she is an romantic soul, too. And what a pretty tea cup the yellow one is. I love the outstanding ruffled shape and the bright sunny yellow. How nice to have such a help like Noah for computer problems. But Martha, I am really impressed that you can post from an iPhone. You are really a Modern Martha! Thank you for sharing this treasures and for hosting the sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna
