Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday, No. 175 ! What an exciting week! The world got a new "Prince" and I got a new great nephew! He was born on the same day and almost at the same time England's Prince was born. I will get to hold him in a few hours. Issac C. Hess came into the world today making my sister a Grandma for the first time. Here is a sneak peek at the perfect boy!
Today in blogland, we are celebrating "Christmas in July" tea cups with Sandi. I am sharing a couple of my favorites with you today. First I want to show you the new Altered Scrapbook I am working on. It fits in perfectly with today's Christmas theme. I really want to give these books away for Christmas. I have started early in order to get everything done. Wish me luck. What do you think? This one is very different from the one I showed you last week. I am not quite done yet, but you can see how it its taking shape. I have a lot more embellishments to add. If you have any questions on how to make these, just email me. I can walk you through it.
Now, for our first Christmas in July Tea cup. When I decided to join this party I thought how very fun to share Christmas Tea Cups early. I forgot one thing, I have all my Christmas Tea Cups in a storage unit. It is a big thing to get into it and look through the endless boxes. I was lucky enough to find two that for some reason, missed the storage unit. This first one is English, made by Duchess China. I just love the colors on this one. It is almost fall colors instead of winter. Very cute, one of my favorites. (I have a lot of favorites!)
This second one is a Made in America piece. It is called "Old Ivory" by Syracuse China. This is a very elegant tea cup and comes with a dessert plate. I have only recently began to purchase tea cups with dessert plates. I don't know what I was thinking before. They are so much easier to use when you add something sweet.
I am still learning how to do things on my new computer. I like how I can make the pictures large. I can see them better. I just have to show you a picture of Noah and Sophia. They were sailing this past week. Noah, looks like a pro!
Terri and I are so grateful that you continued to join us each week. This week I am linking up with Sandi at http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com. Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful cups.
