HE IS RISEN!
Hello Ladies: Once again, welcome to Terri and Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday No. 160. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I have been under the weather, however, who could not be happy on Resurrection Sunday! God is so good to me, I feel like our whole family has turned a corner and that God has only good things for us. Just look at these precious Grandchildren, these pictures catch their personalities perfect!
Monday I began the two day process of putting away Easter and choosing the next month's colors. You know I have been trying to thin out some of my treasures at home. Here is a peek at just one shelf on this huge china cabinet to let you know what a challenge I have. I purchased this monster at an estate sale. My little, 90 pound, mother and I were going to put it on top of my CRV and bring it home. To make a very long, funny story short, it took 4 men to move it very slowly. I have every inch covered with treasures. I have 5 china cabinets so (even though I am not a Hoarder) I have my hands full.
I have picked the color Teal to work with this month. As you can see, I have a lot of items in this color. So my first cup this week is Foley, from England. This cup is so ornate and beautiful, the saucer is like a small bowl. It is just beautiful. It reminds me of Terri. This is definitely her taste, don't you think? Can't remember where I got it, maybe Terri gave it to me! Remind me if that is true Terri. ("The old gray mare, she ain't what she use to be!")
Cup two is a gold and teal Chintz Colclough. Teal and pink look so good together.
Cup No. 3 is this gorgeous Aynsley. Love the shape. I paid $3.49 at the thrift store for this amazing beauty. What is it about a cup that was acquired cheap that makes it that much better?
The last cup is this amazing Crown Staffordshire tea cup. It is teal with gold leaf roses. It also has a bowl like saucer, just lovely.
Next week is the big give away. Last chance to enter is this week. Please let me know if you want to be a part of the give away.
Have a wonderful week. Remember we are God's children and He loves us. Blessings, Martha
