AND THE WINNER IS . . .
Hello Ladies: I can't believe I am actually posting on time today. Happy Tea Cup Tuesday No. 161! I have so much good news to share with you. Our family is almost ALL better, improving daily. Thank you for your prayers. My son, Kyle, had his dream come true, he has been hired in Ojai, California as a Fireman! He is walking in the clouds. He has studied and worked so hard. I know I have shared from time to time about him, but it has finally happened for him. I just have to thank God. If that is not enough, I also won a couple of give aways this month! If you would have told me this last December, that things would be going so well, I don't think I would have believed you. All I can say is God is Faithful even when we are not. Here is a picture of the lovely give away I won from Rhonda from A Little Bit of French, http://alittlebitfrench.blogspot.com. Rhonda has a blog and a store that always make you slow down take a second look and wipe the drool from your month. She is so talented. Look what I won! Thank you so much Rhonda. I will show you my other win, next week.
As promised, I too have a give away announcement today. The winner of my 800 plus followers give away is . . . Jocelyn from Just A Little Southern Hospitality. I have followed her blog for a few years now. I am glad her name was drawn by Noah. I may have to get Sophia to drawn the names from now on, that perfect Grandchild is reading now and doing 1st grade work in preschool. Handsome and smart, what more can a Grandma ask for? He likes to make dates with me (I take him to the movies). He is so cute. Anyway, side tracked, Jocelyn, please email me with your address and I will send your goodies to you!
Did I ever tell you I collect Fenton? Well I do, I realized this month, that I have a lot of Fenton in Teal. I have had many ladies ask me how many tea cups I have, to be honest, I don't know. I pack them away with each month's decorations. They go under the house and do not come up again for a whole year. A little over the top, but so you know, and all fears are calmed, I am not a Hoarder! That's my story and I am sticking to it.
The first tea cup I am sharing today is a Haviland Limoges. Limoges is my favorite china. This is a very old lovely Teal Rose demitasse cup. Despite the age it is in perfect condition, no crazing at all. Pieces were always elaborately fashioned and embellish with gold. That is what is amazing about Limoges it can look new, no matter how old they are. I will show you my dinner dishes next week. They are amazing, over 90 years old and they look brand new.
Cup No. 2 is a vintage Paragon. It is part of a set of four that I own, each cup in a different color. It is part of the Antique Series, Georgian. Very lovely!
The last cup is a Royal Albert, pattern name Hyde Park. Love the combination of teal and pink roses.
Thank you for joining this party that Terri and I have each week. We are so grateful for each of you. I know you have been praying for our family. Just want you to know God has heard your prayers! Have a wonderful week, filled with His blessings, Martha
Here is Mr. Linky for this week.
