LOVE IS IN THE AIR THIS TEA CUP TUESDAY!


Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 150! Wow! Thanks so much for your continued support of this fun event. It was a pleasure visiting you last week, it's amazing the different tea cups we see each week. I hope you remember, I am celebrating my fifth year of blogging and will be giving away the lovely Sadler Tea Pot that you see on the top of this post. I will also be including some bling for you viewing pleasure along with the tea pot. All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog, or on my Facebook, or my website www.prettyvintagethings.com. Please let me know that you want your name included in the give way. Enter as often as you want, each entry will give you another chance to win. The drawing will happen at the end of the month. As I reflect on the past year of blogging, I am so aware of the love that my family has continuously given me and how much your friendship has encouraged me. God has been amazing to me. I am not the same person who you met five years ago. Again, thank you for your friendship. You will never know how much it means to me.



Have you noticed love is in "the blog air?" So many of your blogs are already including Valentine Decor. I just have to join in. It is my third favorite holiday, next to Christmas and Easter! It is so fun to decorate my home for it. I started this week. Kisses, hearts and lots of love are beginning to appear everywhere you look. I know it will please Noah, who is always looking forward to the next holiday and recently complained I left Christmas up too long for his taste. Look much he has grown lately. It is hard to believe he is only 4 years old. He even lost his first tooth!


The very first cup I would like to share with you is a gift from my best friend, Deby. It is a Lefton in a pedestal design. Love the color and the pale pink roses.



Cup number 2 was also a gift from my one of my dearest friends, Terri, a couple of years back. The cup is KPM, Royal Ivory. The cup reminds me of Terri every time I see it. Unfortunately, I still cannot take as good of a picture as Terri does. I have this wonderful new camera that my children gave me for Christmas and still, her pictures are so much better. I will have to keep practicing.



The very last cup is a Haviland, Limoges. It has this lovely pale pink background and of course, it is hand painted. These three cups are so special to me. They are perfect to begin Valentine's decor with.



Once again I am having trouble with Mr Linky. So, what I will do is go to Terri's post to see who I need to visit. So, sorry for problem, it seems that when I put up the linky it does not let me have a "comment" section and everything goes to the middle of the page. If any one knows how to fix it, please let me know, thanks. Have a wonderful week! Terri and I always look forward to being "wowed" by your homes and of course, those lovely tea cups.


Blessings, Martha

Apparently there's a bug for scheduled posts, if you're on Wordpress. When I do my parties I publish them immediately, that seems to help.
Hugs,

Hi Martha,

Noah is a cutie despite he grow to a handsome young man. Thank yu for sharing all your treasures with us and for hosting this nice event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Martha,
Pink is a suitable colour for love, we wish "pink dreams" to mean people should dream of their love... ;)
So your pink cups were a very good choice... and beautiful, too!
My favourite is the last one, really exquisite that Haviland tea cup!
Thanks for sharing all your beauties... which includes your darling Noah, of course... :)
Thanks for hosting, dear Martha
Hugs

Bookie said...

I would love any Sadler tea pot so please put my name in your drawing. I love the winter blue of your blog today!

Terri said...

Oh I love your post! I love each tea cup too. I think you are doing fine with your new camera. The images are clearer. What kind of camera did you get?
Noah really does look like he has grown. And, his face looks more mature. Not long now and he will be in school! Time flies!
I haven't done any Valentine decorating yet...I hope I get to do some before too long.
Have a good week : )
Hugs
Terri

Hello Dear Martha...Put my name into the hat, okay?

Oh my gosh, when I first discovered your blog, Noah was a baby. Just a baby! Now he's a little man---so grown up. How time flies.

Martha, don't ask me why, but I cannot open ANY of the entries today. When I click on them, it says I have invalid credentials for viewing them. It asked for my name and a password. Well, Martha, I dont have a password for Mr. Linky. Very perplexing.

Hope you are well. I know you are happy as you sound it.

Take care, dear Martha. Susan

Oh Martha, I adore your teacups you have shared this week, WOW!

I always loved the pinky girlie ones best - wow Deby and Terri (is that our Terri, by chance from the party?) are kind and thoughtful for those pretty teacup gifts.

LOVE your last one too.

Yes, your g/son is getting so big!

Sorry about your linky dilemma, hate technology sometimes!

HUGS!!

Dear Martha!
I have neglected commenting on your tea cup posts.
It is always a favourite with me to see your gorgeous bling pieces displayed alongside your pretty tea cups.

Wow! I must have you enter me in your giveaway. Please! That is a stunning tea pot...and as I've been drinking more tea than coffee lately, I am in real need of a pot!

So glad I stopped by....and I hope you will visit with me as well.
I'll tell you why in my next comment.
