TEA CUP TUESDAY & GIVEAWAY!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 158! Hope you are doing well. I am running late, something that has become a bad habit. I could look for someone to blame, but why? I am trying to get ready for Easter and the families parties. I am also in charge a of large craft day for my church this weekend. With a little luck I will do a tutorial later on for you. We are making tassels out of vintage salt and pepper shakers. I am planning to make that as my give away for the 800 plus followers, winner. I will start taking names this week with this post. All you have to do is follow me on here or on my Facebook. Just let me know you want to play, enter as often as you would like. I will run it until April 2nd. I will have a picture of it next week for you. Trust me they are so cute! I am trying to get Easter Baskets together for my grandchildren, I love doing that. We are gathering at my sister's home, her house is the largest and it has a big pool. I can't wait until you post some of your Easter Basket ideas. I want to do something different for the Grand kids. I know I can count on you for different and wonderful ideas.
This week I am sharing my St. Patrick's Day Cups. (Better late than never.) I hope you enjoy them. I am starting however with this wonderful old, Belleek Tea Pot. I have had this for years, it has that wonderful old mark. Look at the handle, it is just stunning.
Cup number 2 is this Shelly. I don't own a lot of Shelly, simply because of the cost, not because I don't love them all. This cup is very fine porcelain. It feels like you could crush it with your hands if you hold it too tight. It is an old cup, so that is part of the beauty of this wonderful china.
The last cup I am sharing is this Royal Rover. It is very pretty, for some reason, every time I see it, I think of a Royal Albert. My husband and son both have Irish blood in there veins, so does that make this Mexican an honorary Irish? :) Ok, any reason to party.
I am going to be teaching for the next couple of months for our ladies group. Topic? How to keep an organized home. Not easy for a Serial Collector, maybe the pastor wife is trying to tell me something! Have a wonderful week. Say a little prayer for me. Thank you for your support and care. You are so good to me! Blessings, Martha
Here is the Linky for this week. As usual, Terri has her act very together and I hear we are going to see some new cups. I can't wait to visit!
