Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 184! In spite of what is going on, I do hope you are all well and ready to face a new week. I am 3/4 of the way done with packing the living room and dining room. I feel like I have got a lot done. My home is in total havoc. Most of my china is in my bedroom. It is like a maze to get to the bed. However, the end of packing is in sight! Preparing for paint could start at the end of the week. I hope to fix some of the little things that have been bugging me in there for a while. The first thing I am going to do is add a new chandlier, you can never have enough of chandeliers in your home. That should light up that dark spot in my living room, fixing a problem that has been going on for a while. When it all gets put back together, I want it to look very different. I am due for a change. My son, sweet, beloved, thoughtful, ever thinking about his Mother, decided to bring a new young lady to the house yesterday. Of course, because the house looks like it has be ransacked by a blind thief. Walls filled with nails and holes. It was a great first impression, if I do say so myself.
Today is my birthday and my family is taking me to Palm Springs this weekend to celebrate. My mother is even coming, it should be so much fun. Spending the weekend with all my grandchildren is like Heaven on Earth for me.
I have discovered something that I did not know. I always thought, that if I had one color tea cup and must have at least a dozen of similar color. Well, guess what? Not so! As I was putting away my black and white tea cups, I realized I only had 6 black and whites. (I am slipping!) I am going to share these 4 cups with you today. These are cups that I had out, and were easy to get a photo of.
Let's get started. I have another free item to share at the end of the blog. Just for the asking. Cup number one is a Royal Albert, Señorita. You remember I picked this one up a few months back. I thought I would start with this lovely laced cup. Stunning don't you think?
What do you think about this wonderful German, Bavarian tea cup? Just look at the foot of the cup. It is shaped like a crown. Love it!
Then of course we can't forget the Royal Standard tea cup from England. I love the matted finish on this stunning cup.
Here is the tea pot I am giving away just for the asking. Let me know if you want it. Have a wonderful week. Here are some of the parties I am joining this week.
