TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 181! HAPPY LABOR DAY!
Welcome ladies to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 181! This is our first Tea Party in September and Terri is back this week. We have all missed her, especially me. I feel like things are back to normal again. I do hope you are all having a wonderful Labor Day Holiday. My air conditioner went out Sunday night and it has been so hot here. I have to wait until Wednesday for someone to come out. I have been busy making scrapbooks and I have been asked to help do another wedding. This wedding is in Big Bear, California. I love helping my friends decorate for events. I will try to get pictures of my work this time. I am struggling with a headache today, so if this post doesn't make a lot of sense, you will know why. (It's the heat, I am sure.)
I have been rearranging my bedroom. This is a picture of what I have over my bed now. The sign was a gift from my daughter. I love it!
I have this wonderful cup to share with you today. First, I want to tell you it is a Shelley. It does not look like a normal Shelly to me. I have taken a picture of the back signature this time. To me it looks very simple and plain for a Shelly. Shelley are usually very elegant. That was the reason I purchased it a few years ago. Tell me what you think. The vintage brooch is made of sterling, however, the very odd part of it is, the rhinestones are plastic. Who can figure things like this out?
Cup No. 2 is a Taylor and Kent. I love the pot-belly shape it has. Really a perfect cup to share some Autumn tea.
This last cup, is a Hart China. It is very thin and fragile. Quite pretty, in a lovely cream color. I am considering putting it up on my web site, Pretty Vintage Things, only because I have so many tea cups. I really am trying to down size, but it is so hard.
These are my grandchildren in there backyard pool. Do you ever wonder how God must feel about us? If we as mere Grandmothers and Mothers can love our child so much that it hurts, how must He feel when he sees us? Does He smile when we just do something cute? I think so! As you can see, Sophia is a shoe girl. She thinks heels are for running. Have a wonderful week. Sending blessings your way. I am very grateful you stuck with me, during Terri's absence. You are the best! Martha
I am partying with these hosts as well~
