Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 190! I am also celebrating over 900+ followers. Who would have ever thought? This simple little blog about tea cups, jewelry, decorating and Grandchildren would have that many followers. Thank you dear ladies for your faithfulness and friendship. You have seen me in the good times, the bad times and the ugly times. You are all so very special to me. As many of you know, I have been have troubled with my Tea Party link. Blogger just seems to not want to accept it. I am going to try once again to join up with Terri, but if I can't, please take the time to sign in with both of us. I know that is one extra step for you, but Terri and I are still committed to do this party together. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

With Halloween behind us, it is time to start thinking Thanksgiving and Christmas. I will be hosting my first Christmas party on the first week of Christmas. So don't be surprised if Christmas decorations come early this year. My home is almost normal. One chandelier is up, one more to go. Curtain are up, a little unsure that they might just look a bit to feminine. Please give me your opinion. The guys here have not even noticed. Sound familiar?

It is so wonderful to know where my tea cups are, in the various colors! I can't begin to tell you how freeing that is. I also have a large pile of items I have begun to put up on Pretty Vintage Things! So very proud of this woman. Who says hoarders can't change? Not me! Here is my first tea cup for this week. It was so much fun to open boxes and find beautiful things, I had completely forgot about. This cup is all gold. It is made in Bavaria, Germany. The gold is brilliant and make this cup that much more special.

The next two cups are demitasse, Castleton tea cups. Notice the pretty design of each of the cups as well as the floral design details on the other one. I must have had these cups for over 30 years. My husband purchased them up for me in Oceanside, CA. There was a set of 12 full size for each design. I have since sold them, and only kept one of each to remind me of the moment.

In honor of 900 plus followers, I am having a give away! The give away is this Hammersley Tea Cup Set, made exclusively for Princess House. In order to win, you must leave a comment here. For extra chances please comment on my Facebook page. I will run this for two weeks. Good luck.

My last picture is of my daughter Vanessa. She truly is a Wonder Woman and I am so proud of her.

Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Martha

I love the detail on the rim of the saucer of the second cup.
As for the femininity of the curtains, if the guys have said nothing then they are perfect.

Hi Martha,
I love your Bavarian teacup, your ruffled drapes and the teacups your hubby found at Oceanside California. That is one of the few places that I have been and it is just amazing there. I would love to be entered to win your Hammersley teacup. I found the cup and creamer on one of my treasure hunts but the cup had no saucer and I have been searching for one. The pink flowers are so pretty. Your daughter is so lovely and I hope that you are enjoying having your home back again after your renovations. My restorations have just been completed and it is difficult to live amidst boxes for months. Have a wonderful week.

Once again, beautiful cups, especially the gold - well all of them really. Congratulations on hitting the 900 followers mark, a real achievement.
I too have a lovely daughter named Vanessa, mother of three and a hard worker.
And if the boys haven't noticed the curtains I would keep them. They're pretty.

blessings, Diana

I love looking at your teacups! That gold one is fabulous!
And the curtain looks so good - not too much either. I think your guy will be ok as long as he doesn't get tangle up in it!!
Good luck with your party!

those cups are awesome-I believe tea should be drunk in lovely cups...I just bought one in a lovely consignment shop for myself a few weeks ago-lovely purple flowers-perhaps I should blog about it as part of my thankful series ? I am not here for the party; I just came by "just because" :)
