Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 182! Remember I told you last week, my air conditioner broke down during our heat wave last week? Well, I did get it fixed within 48 hours. That was great for this woman, because I can really lose it in the heat. God was good, someone came during a holiday. All is well again on the earth and at home! One little problem however, there was damage to my living room ceiling and walls. So they have to be painted. What is the big deal you ask? Well take a look, this is a picture of just one of my cabinets in that room. I do not have good light today, to show you a picture of the entire cabinet. However, here is a little glance at shelf or two. I have two large china cabinets in the living room alone. There is an arch connecting the living room from the dining room, so really both rooms need to get painted. I have two more china cabinets filled to the brim in that room as well. Just thinking about it, makes me want "my Mommie!" I am giving myself a few days for the heat wave to go away before I start the project from "hell." Pray for me, I need it; more importantly, my family needs to survive me.
Oh well, have some fun tea cups to share with you today. I am also going to share some recent finds for your viewing pleasure :) This first cup is a Johnson Brothers, Friendly Village, The Ice Box. It is a common tea cup used in the fall. I love cups that tell stories. It is made in England.
Cup No. 2 is an orange colored cup from Brazil. In my efforts to thin things out, I will give this cup to the first person to ask for it. Just email me. It will be one less cup I will have to pack away while the workers paint.
The next two cups are both from Japan. I just love the one with the bird on the handle. They are both demitasse cups. You can see my cameo collection under the cup. All this has to be packed away to paint. I am in so much trouble. (Don't think about it, Martha.)
Of course, this week I found just a few new pieces, I did say just a few. See the ballerina in front of the Limoges plate, at the top of the post? Lately I have been drawn to very small figurines. (Why, Martha? Why?) They are so cute. Look at the little orange one that matches the larger one. How could I say No?
Also found this great vintage napkin holder. Don't you just love her? I think she would look great with vintage hankies. Did I ever tell you I collect vintage hankies? They too, are also stored in the living room. Ouch!
Ok, this is the last of it, for this week. These are two, vintage, crystal perfume bottles, signed by the designer. I have this thing for perfume bottles, I guess you know. The more I listen to myself, the more I am sure I need prayer. All these little goodies cost me only $10. I only buy things when they are super cheap. I hope you give me points for that? I just thought of a great plan! You can all come over and help me next week! We can have a work day! Great plan don't you think? I'll feed you lunch! :) Think about it!
Here is a picture of my two grandchildren. They always make me feel better.
Thank you for listening to me today. I needed your ear and a place to just confess my collecting situation. Have a great week. Here is the link and also a few parties I am joining this week. Blessings! Martha
