Hello my friends, welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 188! It appears that I just may be back among the living this week. My living room, dining room is almost done. All that is left is the chandeliers (still) and the jewelry. I can walk into the rooms and not bump into anything. All the major pieces are in place, yeah! I am beginning to add pictures and plates. My favorite part of this whole mess is the decorating and I will be doing that all this week.
During this very hard time for me, I have made some very serious changes in my life. (I know, here she goes again.) As I have been working at trying to find new places for my many collections, I am once again thinning things out. I have to, I can't leave this work to my children. The three of them are so different. My first daughter, wants me to keep a price on everything so she could have one large estate sale. My second daughter wants to keep everything because they were her Mother's and my son, well, he would just order a dumpster. Bless his little heart!
So, I have a very large collection of boxes ready for my website, Pretty Vintage Things. I hope by next week to start listing, just in time for Christmas shopping. If you could only see me, I would put a item in the box marked "to sell" then take it back out. I am a mess. I am happy to report 99% of the time, they stayed in the box! (Victory in Jesus!)
My first tea cup today is this lovely Aynsley, my all time favorite tea cup. I just love the gold inside the cup and well as the vivid colors.
This last cup is a Paragon. I think they make amazing looking tea cups. This is a very simple cup in a lovely light brown color. I paired it with a very vintage seed pearl necklace. Not sure why I like this necklace so much, maybe it is just the simplicity of it. What do you think?
I will be having some give-aways during the next few weeks. I regret to say, this is only for followers in the US. It is just too expensive for me to ship internationally. This Johnson Bros. cup is up for give away. The first one to ask for it will get to be the proud owner. Either, comment or email me, I am good with both.
My Grandson, Noah, won student of the month. Here he is with the principal of the school. The best thing was the award came with a free Ice Cream Sunday. My Princess Maya, did her first cheerleading this weekend and Sophia started ballet classes. As you can see they have kepted their Grandma busy. I also designed some costumes, The Fifth Dimension, to be exact and they won! I don't even know how many of you would even remember this group from the 70's.
Here is the linky for this week. I am having some trouble with it each week and Terri has to come in and fix it for me, as if she did not have enough to do. I am going to try it without listing the parties I am joining. I was told that might be the problem. For all you parties ladies, just know I will be there! Have a great week.
