I AM LATE TO A VERY IMPORTANT DATE! TEA CUP TUESDAY!
Hello Ladies and welcome to Terri and Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday No. 165! Sorry I am running a bit late today, I have had a busy week with the grandchildren and as you know, everything always stops when they are in the house! Noah went to his first Angel Game with his favorite uncle, while Sophia had her life changed with a new pair of shoes. She loves walking around with these heels.
I have to show you the wonderful giveaway I won from Ruthie Miller. For some reason, I cannot seem to get back on her site to let her know I got them. It is a wonderful buffet of all things tea. One of the most fun prizes I have ever seen offered and I won it. Thank you so much, Ruth, please let me know how to reach you. I threw away the box and I just want to say thank you so much. I just love every piece.
Did I ever tell you I collect Lefton? It is one of my favorite china. I am aware they are not of the highest quality, but the pieces are so cute. I have so much of Lefton, just because of the whimsey look they have. This first cup is one of my favorite. I know I have shown this one to you a couple of times before, but it is worth seeing again. It is completely hand painted with a pedestal shape cup. It is breathe taking.
The next tea cup I want to share is a Royal Standard from England. It is a lovely Chintz cup with dark pink flowers. It has a great ruffle shape cup. Lovely!
The very last cup is a very old BCM from England. Look at how full the design is. This Chintz cup is brilliant. It is my favorite Chintz cup. Very few companies can match the total detail that this cup has.
I am late also, changing my house over for May! I still have the teal up. It seems the older we get the faster time goes by. Don't you find that true or is it just me? Anyway, here is Mr. Linky for this week. Terri has a lovely tea cup to share with us. As for me, I have a lot of parties to visit.
