Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 174! Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July holiday and that the weather is getting better for you. So. Cal is going through another heat wave. I am really not a heat person. I prefer the cooler weather, can't wait until this passes. It has been a crazy week here. My Grandson, Noah, decided it would be good to go visit his cousins in Idaho with his Nana. The plan was for him to stay 10 days and Nana would bring him home. Well, it just did not work out that way, after 3 days, he missed his Mama and wanted to come home. So Monday has been spent trying to get Dad to Idaho to pick up Noah. He did stay 3 days and I am very proud of him for that. I am even more proud of my son in law, who had no problem, just going to get his son and bringing him home. It will be a very expensive 3 day visit for the family. (Don't tell anyone but, I missed him so, I am glad he is coming home.) His Nana wishes he would have stayed longer. I have a perfect fix for this, just have her move back to So. Cal. Sounds good to me, and everyone wins. I can share! Here he is eating ice cream which seems to have made things better.

Here is my first cup for this week. It is a Stanley, from England. I love the large roses on this. The inside of this tea cup is a very pale pink. This is one of the first few tea cups that I purchased when I was just starting my collection. So glad to own it.

Cup No. 2 is a Foley also from England. Aren't the roses in the middle just stunning? This too is a cup I have had for years. I forget about it, so glad I remembered she was mine today.

I am making this post short because my Fireman is home. I have not got to see him much this past month and a half. It feels good just to have him home with me. I will be posting later on this week as I will be a part of the the "Where Bloggers Create" 2013 Party. I have joined this fun party every year. It is always fun to see the wonderful and creative spaces. I get so many ideas. My space never looks the same after the party. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Hello Martha,
Beautiful roses tea cups! I love them!
I am not surprised that Noah became so homesick. It is good to hear that his father was great about going to get him. He was very brave to go on that trip at his age.
I look forward to seeing your WWC post! Yay!

I'll bet you'll be glad to have him home! But difficult for the rest of the family, I am sure. This is a roses week! Lovely teacups...but then, yours always are!
Have a great week!


Hi dear Martha!
I love time with grands, they're so unique and make our lives so happy...Noah became home sich that's soo sweet, lol! Beautiful your rose tacups, I adore roses anywhere, specially in tea sets. Thank you for the lovely party.


Thank you so much Martha...I have never planned or think about it, the shawl just appeared and I decided immediately! I bet you have great shawl-runners, etc. Big hugs,


Oh, the Limoges are the salad plates in aqua-blue from a set mother gave me several years ago. The tea set is antique Bavaria-Germany with aqua flowers too. I know you like to know, that's why I'm mentioning it. Big hugs,

Hello Dear Martha....

Ohhhhh, little Noah was homesick for his California family. Well, Idaho is far away! Wowsers. He was brave to go as long as he did.

Your cups today are gorgeous. I love anything with pink roses, that's for sure!

Take care, Martha, and stay cool. Here, it's been so hot and muggy that I hate to leave the air-conditioned living room. ha hahaha Susan

Dear Martha,

Your teacups - as usual- are stunning. I think they're lovely!

Sorry it didn't work out with Noah - it's hard to travel and be in unfamiliar territory - a shame, the other Gma needs to know him, too. Maybe next time.

Hope you enjoyed your Fireman.

God's blessings.

Thanks for hosting.

Hi Martha,
Thank you for hosting with Terri today. You do have the most beautiful teacups that I have ever seen. The roses with the gold trim make them so rich and elegant! Where do you keep them all? I need to buy another China Cabinet - how many cabinets do you have? Thanks so much for sharing. Have a wonderful week. Take care,

Hi Martha, I love those rosy tea cups. Now that I'm in England it's all about the roses. The roses are just so beautiful here this year. I'm so glad your fireman is home safely. What a wonderful young man. You must be so proud. I missed this Tuesday because I was flying thru most of it but I hope to have some lovely tea cups next week. Hugs for now. :)
