TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 163! SPRING IS IN THE AIR!
Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 163! We are all breathing a lot easier since last week. It seems like anything that could happen to this beautiful Country of ours, did. Those two young men who did that awful thing in Boston, looked like kids. It is hard to imagine they could do such a horrible thing. Lives wasted and for what? Pure evil. Glad it is over! Nothing can stop this Country, we survive!
I have decided to do some serious spring cleaning. I need to make space for my son's new Fire Fighter Gear. Believe me when I say that is not easy to do in this house. Two large bags going to the Goodwill and a bin full of new things for my store. I cleared about one quarter of the closet today, still have a long way to go, but it's a start. I am so proud of myself. You can even imagine how hard it is for me to do this much clearing out.
I am ready to show you some fun cups this week. This first on is a Mikasa, Terrace Bloom. I don't know if you know this, but I collect dish sets. Shocking, I know. I have two sets of everyday dishes, one is a Mikasa. They are strong and beautiful and easy to use everyday. I think this cup was intended more for coffee. It is so pretty.
This next cup is a Hammersley & Co. You can always tell a Hammersley by the fine quality of the piece. This one is a demitasse cup. Love the thumb rest on this one. I had a boss years ago that was trying to cut down on his coffee. He would always use demitasse cups for his coffee. It was funny to see a big guy with this tiny little cup of coffee, but it worked for him.
The last cup is my favorite this week. It is a MZ Austria antique tea cup & saucer. The pattern name is Julie. It has a Art Deco design, with a delicate rose design. Very pretty. Looking forward to visiting you all this week. Terri has some stunning tea cups to share this week and a give away! Wishing you God's best! Martha
