Hi Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 178! So sorry about last week's link. I just could not get it to work. It took out my comment section, the whole right side of the blog and did not show the linky. I felt so bad. I hope this week's will work better. I am really starting to miss Terri!! Today is the start of another week, keep your fingers crossed for me, that it will work. Because I did not have the link, visits to your teas were very scarce. I did have a fun time joining several parties last week. I not quite sure how to add additional links to the party's I am joining. I guess I need to learn. Thanks for your patience. Terri, I miss you!

My son was home for 3 days this week. We were so happy! It was his birthday, so his sisters surrounded him all weekend. He also spent a lot of his time trying to get his sleep pattern back on track. He was working nights so he has had to get back to days. The first thing he said to me when he got back was "Mom, I had a great time!" I told his Dad, he must have dropped him when he was little and did not tell me. (He denied it!) We are so glad that for now, he is back to work on regular schedule. I had all three of the Grandchildren together. It was a blast for me. Here is a picture of Princess Maya and Princess Sophia's legs. They both have a thing for shoes!

I am sharing some of my favorite lady collections today. Hope you like them. I was reminded this weekend of all the collections I have. (I think it was in a good way?) If I ever had to moved, it would be so scary, collections are everywhere and I have been thinning out, really! My Sister in Law, told me I need to get rid of a lot. Of course, it needs to go her house. She would be glad to help me get rid of my problem and put it in her house. :) She is so helpful!

On to tea cups! My first tea cup is a Mitterteich, from Germany. As you know I love items with ladies and this one fits me perfect. It is a demitasse cup.

My next tea cup and teapot is a Franz. I picked them up at an antique shop a few years ago all for $35. It came with the matching spoon too, however, it broke. It's replacement cost is more than the whole set cost me, so it is spoon less right now. I think it is just amazing.

My last tea cup this week is a Coalport from England. It is on the simple side, but I really love the colors and I love the color green. Look at that cute little thumb rest!

Well, here is crossing my fingers for everything to work alright with Mr. Linky. I just have to add a couple more Grandchildren pictures. (I am Grandma, I can't help myself!)


Hugs and blessing to all. Martha

Hi Martha,
Your teacups are so elegant. I love the green coalport. Your grandkiddies are so cute. I love the wee girl's cheeks. Just adorable. Thanks for the visit and hosting the fun party today. I wouldn't have a clue how to do a linky party. You are very computer saavy! Have a wonderful week! Take care,

Well - love the ladies, Martha! Nice little collection. I have a few, too, and perhaps that would be a nice theme for a post sometime. I have to say, though, that the Franz set was jaw dropping beautiful! Quite the work of art - and a steal at $35! How do you find the deals! As to perfect grandchildren - I have one of those and will be visiting her next week! Hope I can make it to teatime while I do . . .

Kathy said...

Perfectly elegant ladies - the first makes me think about Marie-Antoinette - since I just read/reviewed a book about her gardens! Lovely-gorgeous teacups - so whimsical! Your grands are marvelous - such beautiful smiles - you're quite blessed,
I appreciate you hosting and sharing,
