TEA CUPS AND THE MOTHER LODE OF ESTATE SALES!




Good morning and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 177! One more month of summer and then, we hit the ground running, holidays aka: Christmas! As you know our own Mrs. Terri is taking the month of August to create, so it will just be me this week. I will miss her lovely posts, but can't wait to see what she will do when she comes back. I began another scrapbook, will show it to you next week, as I did not finish it. I also hit the Mother Lode at an Estate Sales. All the pictures I am about to show you cost a total of $32, how could I pass them up? It would have been a sin! So, not to live with the guilt, I purchased them! Yeah! I know I said no more tea cups, but can you just blame me? I am going to give you a close up of them in this post. It would have been so wrong to leave them behind. :)








Let's get started, I am so excited to share them with you. My first cup is a Royal Albert "Señorita." I have wanted this cup for a while, it has always been too expensive to purchase. As you can see "all things come to those who wait!" I don't know who said that, but it is so true. I like the scripture that says "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart!" I am thinking this applies to tea cups too! I have a rather large collection of black and white tea cups, this one will be a perfect addition.



Just look at this second cup I got in that big haul. It is a Royal Stafford, "Rose, Pansy, Forget-Me-Not" pattern name. I know that at first it looks like a common pattern, but if you look closely at the rim design and the ring shape handle, you will see it is quite different. How could I pass this up? Tell me?


This next cup is my favorite of the five cups I found. It is demitasse and it is a Wurttemberg, Germany, Porcelain Rose Floral Design, with gold gilt. I wish the pictures could show how beautiful it really is. I just could not get them right this week. It is stunning. It was calling me by name "...Martha buy me!" What could I do?




Did I ever tell you I collect "Blue Bubble" Depression glass? I had a very large collection that I gave to my nephew. It serves 30 with all the extra pieces ever made for it. Every once in a while I see a piece or two that I can add to his collection so I pick them up for him. Our family is rather large and most of the large gatherings are at his home because it is the largest. Originally, this set was the only one that could serve everyone. He now has added new sets for the different occasions, but he still will use his Aunt Martha's set when the occasion calls for all blue.



I do hope you enjoyed my new treasures. I was so happy to spend the weekend with all my Grandchildren, including Princess Maya! We went to a small local theatre to see "The Princess and the Frog. Noah loved it, Maya said it was alright, but she was use to large stage productions! My little Noah hurt his foot on his bike. Sophia said she did not like it. (You can't please everyone!)



Here is the link for this week. I look forward to looking at all your cups. I am aware that many of the regular "party guests" are on August break, so us die hards just have to keep this party going! Blessings, Martha (Having trouble with link, sorry!)

Hi Martha,
I tried to leave a comment earlier and couldn't see a spot for it. I just love that black lacy looking teacup with the rose. It is absolutely gorgeous! What a wonderful addition to your amazing teacup collection. Thank you for hosting! Take care,
Karen

Hi Martha,
Your estate pieces are amazing and at such a great price, too! I love your RA's Senorita cup and saucer. It's just gorgeous.
Thanks for hostessing!

Wow Martha, what treasures you found at the estate sale! There is no way that you could pass all that up! The Señorita teacup is so unique. I love the lacy look of it. Thank you for sharing your bounty.

Betty Stapleton said...

Hi Martha, I tried to leave a comment too and so I came back to see if their was a spot, glad to see I can. I love all your goodies you got and really love the black Senorita, so gorgeous. God bless....

Veronica Roth said...

Oh yay! The comments are working! Martha your poor little Noah! It's so distressing when they hurt themselves, isn't it?
I love all your estate sale finds, the depression glass especially, but
that black lacy and red rose tea cup is spectacular. It looks like something out of that fairy tale. :)

Hi Martha, thank you for stopping by at my humble blog and leaving a nice comment. Wow, you have some nice collection going there. I love hunting for bargains and vintage things too. Can I join your tea party?
Yeah I think that quote about good things come to those who wait, applies to all things beautiful.

Have a good weekend.

Lovely pink glasswares - Happy Pink Saturday!

Susie Jefferson said...

You certainly are lucky - I go to sales and either don't see anything, or what I do see I get outbid for! What a wonderful collection. Happy Pink Saturday!

Melissa Bo said...


I love your collection of cups! =)
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

RobinfromCA said...

You really did hit a jackpot at that estate sale! I have a teapot that matches the second cup you pictured. Love that pattern!

racheld said...

What a delightful trove!! The Senorita cup is one I've never heard of before, but if ever there were mantilla lace, that's it.

Lovely collection of everything, and I'm glad to know the name of the Bubble pattern---my only piece is a 16" round platter, and not knowing what it was, I've always just said, "The Round Bubble Plate."

It looks fabulous with circles of strawberries, on which you've drizzled strings of white, milk and dark chocolate round and round.

Delighted to find your blog!
