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?
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!)
