Hello Ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 187!  So sorry about last week, I know I just bailed, but my life has been just crazy.   My house is getting better, but understand, I have been at this a few weeks.  I force myself not to go completely on tilt.  I have to tell myself, it is getting better.  It still needs the chandeliers installed, pictures hung, items put back in their new place and of course,  more dusting, but it is getting better.  I feel so selfish, because in the large scheme of things, this is really nothing.  It is really NOTHING!  I remember when my husband started the remodel in our kitchen, a few years back.  I felt catatonic, the mess was so bad, so in retrospect, I have been doing well.  It is getting better.  Have I convinced you yet? 

The most wonderful thing happen this weekend. Sophia celebrated her second birthday.

It was a Princess Party.

All the little girls were dressed in their favorite Princess dress and the boys were Knights and Kings.  Sophia wore a Snow White costume and when it came time to blew out her candles, she changed into another Princess Dress.  She looked so cute and just took it all in.  Princess Maya looked wonderful in her princess dress, while Noah was the Knight in shining armor!

This week, I am sharing my tea cup cabinet.  It is almost filled, and back to normal.  You can see many of the cups I have shared throughout the years.  I promised to picture a special tea cup next week. 

I want to thank you so much for following my blog and being so faithful to Terri's and my tea cup party.  I do so enjoy and appreciate each and everyone of you.  Each week it seems, we see a tea cup, we have never seen before.  Have a wonderful week.  I look forward to seeing what you have to share this week.  Here is the linky and just some of the parties I will join this week.  Remember this - things are getting better! :) Linky will be late this week, please some back later. Thanks, Martha

Hugs, Martha

Sophia is so precious! Two! Love it! I've been through this before - those things/renovations you have to live through do put added pressure - but keep your end goal in mind and check off your list the things that are getting done - it is marvelous how many teacup designs there are out there- awesome - so delighted to join your party - no LINKY yet - will return. Have a blessed week,


Oh my Word, is this 'teacup heaven!!!' Happy birthday to adorable Sophia and hugs, to all the other cutíes! Renovations are a bit stressful because there's so much work to do until it's finally done. Like Kthy says, your end goal is what counts and we realice it, we're soo happy we started doing it! I will come back later for the party. Thank you so much in advance lovely lady.

If I were a little girl going to that party, I would want to be a knight or king, not a princess!

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Dear Martha,
what a sweet post. Love to see your grandkids growing. They are all so cute. I can imagine the problems of the renovation. But when everything is ready you will have the finest rooms for Christmas. Wait and see!
Best greetings, Johanna

So glad to hear things are getting better! Having fun times with your dear grandkids I am sure help so much. Your China cupboard looks wonderful with all your pretty teacups!

Hi Martha,
I missed you last week. Your teacups shown today in you cabinet are delightful! I don't know which one is my favourite ~ they all are! How cute to see the kiddies behind that frame. At first I thought they were actual photographs. Have a wonderful week. Take care,

NanaDiana said...

OH- What a week or so you have had. There are times when real life just gets in the way of blogging. Those children are ALL just beautiful. They really complete your life, don't they?

Beautiful china!!!!! xo Diana

What beautiful princesses and knights you have.
Love the pictures of your cup cabinet too, including some princesses in there as well I see.


Susan said...

Hello my dear Martha....Oh, I'm glad things are normalizing. It will all be worth it in the end.

The grandchildren are darling. Sophia? GORGEOUS. Future Miss America!

Sending lots of hugs your way. Susan

Jocelyn said...

Martha, the photos of the children standing behind the picture frame is too adorable, what a sweet idea.
I love all your tea cups too :) lovely post

Antiques And Teacups said...

The idea of total disruption...a shudder! Hang in there...it's got to get settled for you soon!

Terri said...

Hello Sweetie,
Your grandchildren are so adorable! I love those pictures of them. Happy Birthday Sophia!
And just look at all those gorgeous tea cups! Wow!
I am glad your home is coming along. Soon you will be comfortable again.
I am not sure you have received any of my e-mails? Karl was able to work on your post last night and I think it is working now.

What darling grandchildren you have, Martha. I'm glad to hear things are coming along. Your teacups are lovely and thanks for sharing them. Hope you're having a lovely day.

une armoire très bien remplie
que de belles tasses à thé
un vrai trésor
et ces petites sirènes en faïence
sont merveilleuses
j'ai fait également un billet avec le bouton de Sandy

You have an amazing collection, Martha. I hope your house is getting better and it is easier for you now. Your grand kids are such cuties. Happy birthday to the princess,

Oh - my dear - do NOT jostle those tables! I can just see all those beautiful works of art tumbling down in a host of shards! To be honest - my teacup cabinet looks like that, too. And, I'm always a wreck when I sort through it or worse - add something new! Challenging, to say the least. Take heart - one day at a time will do it and you'll be settled before you know it!

Sophia is a Doll!! Sounds like a fun party, like the frames :)
And love all the pretty tea cups!

I have never had an agent show my occupied house in the manner you are stating. An agent must state the appointment time and window of showing and get approval before showing the property. If they did what you said I would be Yelling at their Broker!!!! I do not believe you have an factual evidence to back up that statement..

McConnell did so with the understanding one piece shirt that Trump would support the bill, allies said. But the president changed course abruptly the next morning under intense pressure from conservatives, and the House never took up the Senate's bill, instead passing legislation to keep the government open and supernatural t shirts fund Trump's wall. The legislation had no chance in the Senate attack on titan shirt.
