TEA CUP TUESDAY, PINK TEA CUP MARKED "666 1/2" SCARY!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 176, our last one for July. I do believe Terri will be taking the month of August off. She has caught the creative bug so she will direct her attention to many other things. I am sure Terri will share with us all her new creations when she returns. Starting next week, it will just be me, I hope you don't mind. My son, Kyle, sent me this picture last night. He told me not to worry about the fire, he was fine and protecting a small community near Yosemite. "Ok, I won't worry about the fire that is at his BACK!" He is doing what he loves.
I have been at Estate Sales this weekend, too much fun! I will share some of my treasures today, most I will share next week. First, I want to show you the newest Word Scrapbook I finished this week. I am trying very hard to give these as Christmas gifts to those who have not already received a book from me. I purchased this one a few years ago and I am barely getting around to it. Does anyone else do that? I buy things with the best intentions and they just get put aside. I am not sure how much I like working Word Books. I do have one for Noah who loves to be called "Brother." I tend to fill them with embellishments and there is not a lot of room for pictures. Still very undecided about it. I feel like a "scrapbook making machine" right now. I have to work on them while I am in the mood to do them. (Moods can quickly pass!)
I did find a lot of treasures this weekend, like I said. I have been trying very hard to thin out my tea cup collection. When I saw this one I just had to get it and the price was perfect $3. It is not marked, I believe it maybe German, but not sure. It does have incised on the bottom the numbers 666 1/2. A little weird, might have not purchased it if I had noticed before. I could not get a good picture of the mark. The cup looks like it has blue jewels all around it.
I am sharing a few similar cups today. As I was pulling them out, I realized I have a few more than I thought in this style. I must be attracted to this type of cup. This next one is a mustache cup. I love this cup, one, because it is so beautiful and two because it is a "pink mustache" cup. I love men in mustaches but I have trouble seeing a guy using this cup.
Cup No. 3 is a "Forget Me Not" cup in that same style. This one is a little heavier that the first two, but special just the same.
I am excited because I was, once again asked to contribute to the Shabby Lane Shops Magazine. You can get a copy by visiting the shops or emailing me. I am their "want to be" thrift store decorator! I have also been features in their Shabby Lane Marketplace Virtual Vendors Show. It is a nationwide, virtual shopping mall. Please check it out here. I would love for you to visit! http://www.shabbylaneshops.com/pages/marketplace.htm
