TEA CUPS, SCRAPBOOKS AND ESTATE SALE FINDS!
Welcome Tea Cup Tuesday No. 175! Our summer is going by so fast. Before I share some tea cups, I would like to show you a baby scrapbook I just finished. I made this fun book for my nephew, who will be having his first baby this month. It includes some pre-baby pictures as well as room for new ones. This is my fourth scrapbook in 2 months, I have been on a roll. I have just started a new one today. I am working on Christmas gifts, and at the same time, clearing out photos.
This week end while I was out and about, I found the most beautiful coffee table. Although I love the coffee table I have, it is too large. This is the second one I have purchased for this spot, however, my daughter took the other one and now she is taking my old Queen Anne for her future home. This new table is about 1 1/2' shorter and fits so much better. It was a steal. I am so pleased with how it looks. What do you think?
Now for the tea cups. This first one is one from Italy. It is hand blown and painted, so very pretty.
Cup No. 2 is a Royal Albert. Pattern name is "Forget Me Not."
The last cup I want to share is a Mikasa. It is one of my favorite china makers. It is strong and very practical. The pattern name is "Arbor Terrace Bloom."
Had to show you a picture of Sophia and I. She just wanted her Grandma. Can you tell how much I am enjoying her? I was so tempted to photoshop my wrinkles off. They are what they are. I feel so much younger than what I look like. :) Have a wonderful week. Terri and I look forward each week to visiting all the wonderful places you take us too. I am so early, not sure why! Blessings, Martha
