Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 153! Hope you had a wonderful week. You may have noticed that I did not get to visit you last week. My computer is failing. My son has ordered a new one for me, it should arrived this week sometime. I hope it is not like my phone, to smart for me to use. I have finally learned to answer it and text. I can take pictures, I just don't know how to view them yet. I know, I am so slow at learning new things. Hopefully, this computer will be easy. I am posting this with my old computer, keeping my fingers crossed. I noticed last week when I posted on the ipad you could not leave comments. Hopefully this one will be better.

Well, do you feel the love in the air? Valentine's Day is almost upon us. I have some fun cups to share this week with you. Did I tell you Sophia likes to pretend she is drinking tea with me? I have a demitasse cup for her on the coffee table and she has tea every time she visits me. For someone that had so much trouble liking her Grandma, I can proudly say "Sophia Loves Me!" It took her over a year, but she did it. She hugs me, calls me on the phone, and gives me kisses. I worked very hard for that one's love, you remember? Noah was a piece of cake compared to her. I need to bug my other daughter for a current picture of Princess Maya, I have not shared one with you lately.

This week I am sharing rose cups. What says "I love you" better than roses? This first one is a Lefton, pedestal, handpainted cup. I love the gold on the outside and the pattern on the inside. Just perfect!

Cup No. 2 is this Stoke on Trent, Pointons. I almost forgot I had this cup. It is a lovely pale pink on the inside with a gold and silver rose pattern on the outside. Look at the lovely handle, just stunning!

This last one is a Schumann Arzberg, Germany Bavaria. It is so pretty. I love the dessert plate to this one.

Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Our winner of the lovely Sadler teapot was Carmelina, from Creative Carmelina. Please send me an email with your address to marthasfavorites@aol.com. I am having trouble receiving emails, so you might want to wait until the end of the week to send it. I will have my new computer by then. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Lovely post Martha! I love all three of your tea cups. The gold pedestal is stunning, the cup with pink inside is perfect retro look, and the last one with the cut out work on the plate is beautiful. Lovely sampling of your beautiful collection.
Your grandchildren are getting so big! Oh my, they do grow up fast!

Okay...I will send you my address again, Martha. I was wondering why I hadn't heard back from you!

Dear Martha,
not easy to chose what is the cutest on your post. Noah is such a handsome young man and little Sophia will have lots of fun and love with your in the next years. You really deserve the love of your grandchildren as you are a wonderful grandma. When Sophia is old enough to treasure your wonderful china collection you will have many wonderful tea times togehter. I love the tea cups you share today. Roses are my favorites.
Thank you for sharing your treasures with us and for hosting this sweet tea event.
Best greetings, Johanna

So lovely! The cup with pink inside is charming...have a blessed week with your family! Good luck with the new computer :)

I completely understand the computer problems. Ours is getting old, and shows it's touchiness often, leaving me uncertain about posting, e-mails, etc. Just an all around prima donna, making me aware of how dependent I have become to it. How would I ever be able to enjoy your beautiful teacups if my computer got cranky and quit?

Lovely teacups, but what i love most about this post is that your granddaughter has tea with you , and she LOVES you !

Sarah Coller said...

You have some beautiful things, Martha. Thanks for sharing them. This is my first time linking up with your party.

I'm hosting my Homemaking Linkup Weekend and would love to have you join, if you'd like!

Have a great day!
Mrs. Sarah Coller

Good morning Martha,
Your teacups are all so pretty.
I have been having computer woes off and on since before Christmas. Whenever I think they are ironed out, more pop up. I tried to visit you last night but I couldn't get into your site. Anyway, I'm here now. Thanks for sharing my friend, and have a lovely Valentines Day.


Two Cottages And Tea said...

Such pretty teacups, I don't think I could choose the one I like the best! Your Grandchildren are darling! Miss mine so much while I'm being a snowbird in Florida. Hope your new computer is easy to use! Thank you for hosting your lovely party and happy Valentine's day to you.

Susan said...

Hello Dear Martha..Oh my GOSH, Noah and Sophia are growing up before our very eyes.

It seems like yesterday that he was a big wide-eyed baby doll and now? He's a handsome young man! Holy cow.

And Sophia? Darling girl. Your heart must be so filled with love.

All your teacups are so pretty, too, Martha. Susan

Dear Martha,
Your teacup & saucers are beautiful.My favourite is the lace pattern dessert plate and rose teacup. Love the pretty jewellery accents. Thanks for hosting. Your grandchildren are adorable. Have a nice week.

Pellie / Penny said...

Martha I loved you post - you grands are so precious.

Love all the tea cups you presented today - I think the last one would be my favorite.


GardenOfDaisies said...

Your rose teacups are so pretty. I love the one with the lacey saucer edge. I am slow at learning the new technology, too. So much easier for the younger generation who pick it up as little kids.

Veronica Roth said...

Pretty, pretty Martha. I love gold on anything and so especially love the second cup. Funny how Valentine's has inspired a lof of the gals to find their pink cups. I found one too. :) Hope your Valentine spoils you rotten.

Lady Linda said...

I can NEVER pick a favorite on your site! Everything is always so pretty. I hope you get your computer soon...we just have to have them with our blogging and all!
Thanks for always posting such pretty things Martha.

Annesphamily said...

I am always wondering if I could ever have a favorite here! Your tea cup collection is spectacular! Love them all! Thanks for sharing!
