PRAYERS FOR BOSTON AND A FEW TEA CUPS!
Hello dear friends: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 162! Posting a little late today, I had my grandson over for the day yesterday and to be honest he wore me out. He is into Star Wars these day and I was Darth Vader yesterday. Can't tell you how many times I was lasered and limbs removed yesterday, believe me, bad guys never make it. He did tell me I am the best Grandma in the world, even though I am old. By the time he left, I was exhausted and Boston, was the only thing on my mind. I went to bed thanking God that my family was all fine. As I prayed for the families that were involved in that horrible event. I even got to talk to my son, who is well into his Fireman training. He will be a first responder in a couple of weeks, like his brother-in-law who is a police officer. I have family serving in the military. Without the peace that only God can give you, I don't know how anyone can make it through the times we are living in.
My first cup today is this Royal Dover from England. Love the shape of this cup.
Cup No. 2 is a Duchess also from England. A very simple, and classic cup. Still deciding if this is a cup, I will be putting up on my website. Like I said I am trying to thin my collection down. I am teaching a Bible study next week about an organized home. (This is at the request of the Pastor's wife.) The hardest study, this almost, could have been, but not willing to admit to yet, hoarder, (I prefer Serial Collector) could ever do. (WHAT DID I JUST SAY?) So, I am trying real hard.
This last cup is a Royal Albert. This is my favorite cup this week. The shape is just wonderful. You can get a large amount of tea in this cup, which is a plus for me.
My Internet was down for most of last week, so I did not get to visit all of the parties. I am planning to stop by everyone's party this week to look at all you pretty things. Terri and I just love to look at all your tea cups. Thank you for being so faithful, even when I am not. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha
