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.

Did I ever tell you I collect cottages of all types? Some are teapots, salt & pepper shakers, butter & cheese dishes, others, like these are just figurines. I have put some vintage Suffolk Cottages on my web site because I just have too many of them. I want to start filling my web site, preparing for Christmas. It is just around the corner you know.

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~

Hello Martha,
I am so glad to be back and I think I have figured out your computer issue. I will e-mail you.
I love all your tea cups today! I love seeing how you decorate too. The grandchildren must have had a fun summer with you. Sofie has real taste : )
I hope you had a lovely family weekend.

Karen said...

Hi Martha,
I love your elegant teacups again today and your rich green hanging plates. I have some similar to them. Your wee grand daughter's legs are so pudgy and cute. My children also had those legs. Love them! Have a wonderful week and thank you for hosting! Take care,

Tazas y Cuentos said...

Hello Martha! Lovely teacups! And I like how you match them with those brooches, so nice.
Wonderful photo of your grandaughter little legs with those red sweet!

You've shared some unique teacups this week, I've not seen a pot-bellied one before but imagine the design would keep the tea hot. Love the butterfly pin.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Martha,
Your teacups are truly unique but I am loving the Shelley! I love a teacup with a scene on it. I have never seen a pot-bellied teacup before and it really is cute. Thanks for sharing and Happy September!


Bernideen said...

You always show such lovely pieces and your signature touch of vintage jewelry! This is very lovely! Thanks for sharing at Tea In The Garden!

Martha, beautiful treasures and wonderful lovely teacups. Thank you for sharing the Pictures.

Greetings from Germany


I love those princesses pictures! The teacups are so pretty, specially the one with the mums on it! Thank you so much for the lovely tea party.
Big hugs,

NanaDiana said...

I know exactly what you mean- to love those kids/grandkids so much it hurts your heart. Aren't we blessed?

I used to collect cottages, too, but had so many that I had to part with some of them. I still have a few packed away that I need to get out and display. Your collection is just gorgeous- xo Diana

Love the crown.

Kathryn Ross said...

Blessings, Martha! Joy to you and all things beauty - which I can see you regularly have your fill of! I have the Shelley cup and love it - such a gentle country scene with fall colors. The pot bellied one actually says "Christmas" to me - perhaps it reminds me of a Christmas ball ornament. Blessings to you and yours!

Hello Martha, Hope you are feeling better and getting the a/c repaired by now. I love all your pretty glass bottles, and the plates over your bed. Your grandchildren are precious. God does love us so much. So much that He sent His only Son to die for us! Thanks for your testimony, Martha. Have a blessed day!
