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

Hi Martha. Such beautiful cups. Love them all and it always is a treasure finding cups like these at thrift stores. One wonders who they belonged to, did they have tea parties and how did they hold their tea cup, with the little finger up out and away.:) Awesome. Nice to see you. Take care and hope your Easter was wonderful. It is really about the Ressurection after all and he is always with us.

Oh my goodness Martha, I love your hobnail. I'm addicted to that. And, gosh, those tea cups are all so beautiful, I don't know what one I love more. I think it might be a tie between first Foley and third Aynsley. I hope you'll have a lovely week this week and I'm looking forward to seeing more monster china cabinet treasures. Hugs

Hi Martha. What gorgeous teacups! I love them all! Couldn't possibly choose a favorite! Your grands are growing so quickly. Isn't it amazing? Glad you are feeling better and had a wonderful Easter. We are blessed, aren't we?

Terri said...

Beautiful Martha! Your grandchildren look like little sweeties! I am so glad you are feeling some relief.
Your cups today are magnificent! I love them all, especially the corset shaped floral Aynsley!
I honestly can not remember if I gave you that cup or not. lol!
Once, I saw my good friend all dressed up and I said "Oh! I love your earrings! and she said "well, you made them for me!" and I was flabbergasted! I had no idea! lol!
So, I am not to be trusted for memory : )
Hugs of LOVE,

Hi Martha,
I really love your grandson's hair style, he looks like a little gentleman in that style.

I love the Foley tea cup--the first one, it seems that it's a very old tea cup.

Love the picture frame with the drawing of the lady as well.

Dear Martha,
Noah and Sophia look so cute and happy. I can see that they make you happy and you make them happy, too. Your collection is always wonderful to see. Don't give to many of your treasures away. I love that you can chose from such a rich choice. All the cups are wonderful, each is a treasure. Thank you for sharing your wonderful collection and for hosting this event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Martha, I too love the color Teal, or Aqua. I wear it a lot. But do not have any china. Guess I will have to remedy that. Your tea cups are gorgeous!
