TEA CUP TUESDAY & PRINCESS MAYA'S BIRTHDAY!





Hello ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No.157! So glad you could stop by, even after last week's post. I have to say, you were all too much. I could feel the love from my blogger friends and I am so glad I shared. I started a list of prayer requests just for you. So many of you shared what you were going through and I was just amazed at the strength that is out there. You truly are amazing women. Life for me has continued to be trying, husband was moved to another hospital because of phenomena and a dear friend of over 30 years went to be with the Lord on Saturday. Somehow, we are managing to continue living our lives, trusting the Lord for His good things. I have some new pictures of my Princess Maya, we spent Saturday together. She is going to be 10 in a few days. I think her smile can light up an entire room. Already she knows what her style is and what she likes. It is like talking to a small adult. The first picture is of my daughter Monique, my Mother, Maya, Noah and Me. The pictures were taken in the dark on my phone. I am so sorry they are dark.





I am sharing this wonderful cup by Leneige. This antique shape demitasse cup and saucer is European, but that is all I know about it. It is very fine porcelain. It features beautiful violets, my flower of the month. Did I ever tell you I collect violets? Violets on everything, plates, jars, cups and vases. I just love the way they look at Easter. I have been trying to thin things out this past year, but as I have begun getting ready for Easter the violet items multiplied as did the bunnies. There are bunnies everywhere.





The next cup is a Royal Albert. It is very simple, yet so very stunning, as only a Royal Albert can be!







This last cup is a O & E G Oscar & Edger Gutherz & MZ Moritz Zdekauer, Royal Austria China Tea Cup and Saucer. It has this gorgeous green and rose garland design. I am selling it on my website for my friend. I just had to pretend it was mine for a moment. It just screams Easter!



If you want me to pray for any request, I will add it to my list. You can email me at marthasfavorites@aol.com or if you feel comfortable, leave it on a comments. I just noticed, I have reach 800 followers, since I always have a give away to celebrate a 100 new followers, look next week for a new giveaway. I will make it special for you. Don't forget to visit Terri, she always has beautiful cups to share. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Hi Martha,
life always has a micture of good things and difficult things. Its nice to see your grandkids develope so nicely. You have a strong family and that is much worth in difficult times. The shared tea cups are wonderful. Violets are seldom in tea cups and therefore your collection is really a treasure. Thank you for sharing this spring feeling and for hosting the party, even when the link is not working yet.
Blessings to you and yours,
Johanna

Your teacups are stunning Martha - so many pretty vases at the top too. You are in my prayers for your husband as well. Sympathy to you for the loss of a friend as well!

How are you sweet lady Martha, with the loveliest tea party, #157!! What a wonderful party Princess Maya had, she deserves it. Many blessings for her. I love that RAlbert cup, it's simply stunning! Yes, life is very trying, we all go thru so much at once sometimes.. we just have to evaluate and put it in the scale. I am so sorry about your friend, how hard that is. We also lost a real sweet friend with cancer 2 months ago, she has been more than 30 years our friend. She passed away at 63. Than, there's so much more; sad family issues we've gone thru. We weren't promised a rose garden, but only an imperfect, beautiful life. Your grands are growing up beautifully, along with the lovely ladies in your family. Thank you and big hugs,
FABBY

Hi Martha,
I’m glad to see a post from you today because I’ve been thinking about you and been hoping you are ok, and I’m sorry to hear of your loss. I loved seeing a photo of you and your family and your violet china collection is lovely. My daughter Kerstin loves all things violet, it is her favorite flower, and her second child has Violet in her name, Isla Violet Gray, but we just call her Bunny...lol. I’ll continue to ask God for His blessings for you, (in my own way). Congratulations of the number of followers. Stay well, until next time.

LELO said...

Hi Martha!

I saw your blog and I want to follow your teacups posts! I collect antiques and hope to share some experiences here!

Well, I know that all (or most of all) your followers are ladies, but O guess that there is some space for a guy who loves teacups.... isn´t?

Thanks for sharing your teacups and know that your family is in our prayers here, in Italy.

:D

Hello Martha, it is marvelous to join together in Christian love and to share - it does give us strength and comfort. Love that you're putting together prayer requests.
I chuckled when I saw your selection of teacups - I chose ones to match the wild violets I picked in our lawn the other day - spring inspirations! I hope you have a blessed week. I appreciate you sharing and hosting,
Kathy

Lovely post Martha! I love violets too! Happy Birthday to Princess Maya. I will continue to pray for your husband. Being a new follower, I don't know what is wrong with him. I do however know that prayer works! My husband is a recent survivor of pancreatic cancer. We Praise God every day!
Love to You,
Danette

Hi Martha,
I hope the situation will be like the first photo you share, the photo was a bit dark but smiles on all of your faces and the lights at the background light up the photo.

I like the first cup so much.

Thanks for sharing!

Love,
Felicity

I got your e-mail Martha. I am so sorry we are having this mail issue! I have been sending e-mails but no luck getting to you. Karl seems to think it is o.k. on this end now. But who knows? Maybe once I return home later tonight I will be able to try again. This seems to be the only way to contact you for now. I hope you day goes very well.
Lots of hugs!
Terri
