CHRISTMAS TREE AND TEA CUPS!





Hello friends!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 196!  Well, Christmas is almost here and I think everyone is in high gear, in efforts to get everything done.  I have decorated my last home this weekend and attended two parties in 7 days.  Can you be a "party animal" at 62?  Last year at this time, my husband was very ill and I can tell what condition my mind was in because, I did not put Christmas items away were I usually do.  So, I have been missing a few important items. My children's Christmas stocking for example, have still not turned up.  I know I can replace them, but I made them for each child as our family grew, adding husbands and now grandchildren.  I need to find them. My children have had them since they were born.  I am feeling my age this week. Thank God for a tea break, now and then.




The first tea cup I am sharing this week is Depression Glass.  It is Cranberry glass and I have a service for 18 of this set.  I love it.  I own three set of dishes that I can use for Christmas, this one is my favorite.  We use it for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day breakfast every year.  I know it is not one of the most beautiful depression glass you can find, but for me it holds so many memories of special meals.   They are also perfect when you have a large group that is joining you for a meal.  





My next cup is also depression glass.  I love to mix green and red depression glass during Christmas.  They are a perfect match. 





My last cup this week is a Nikko, Made in Japan, pattern name "Happy Holidays".  It looks very much like the Copeland. Spode, Christmas Tea Cup. Love the handle on this one. 




Here are a few more home decor, pictures I want to share with you.  I love the way the Christmas tree turned out this year. 










My Noah and Sophia left with their parents for a few days to visit their Aunt and Uncle. Flying on an airplane has become old hat for them. Each have their own iPad, too funny. At their age,  flying on an airplane was never even in my thoughts, let a lone a reality that happens regularly. 




 Princess Maya was in her annual parade this weekend. They had their PJ's  on for the parade.  


Terri and I look forward each week to visiting your homes and seeing all those amazing tea cups.  Thank you so much for your faithfulness.  I appreciate each and every one of you.

Blessings, Martha

Martha, I have a whole set of Nikko Happy Holidays Christmas china that I bought many years ago. I love this pattern, and display it on my hutch every year. Love your depression glass. It's perfect for any season.

Oh dear Martha, your tree is simply stunning! Your children are adorable, so cute, they remind me of my g'girls, flying like taking the bus for me when I was a kid...and with their Ipods, lol! I love your pretty depression cups and of course, all your teacups! Enjoy this lovely holiday season.

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Hi Martha,
youir house is beautifully decorated. Love the depression glas cups and the Copeland cup. All looks very Christmassy. I wouldn't thought about flying in a airplane when I was child, either. Thank you for sharing this tea party and have a blessed time.
Best greetings, Johanna

Ruth Weston said...

I love the jewel colors of depression glass. So pretty! Your tree is lovely! Glad the kids travel so well. Isn't it a blessing this is such a better Christmas than the stress last year? Merry Christmas! We are blessed!

Terri said...

Gorgeous Christmas decorations Martha! I am sorry to hear you are missing your stockings. I understand how important they can be. Full of memories, like your red depression glasses. We have items like that too, that hold special meaning during the holidays.
I hope you have a great time at all your parties!
Hugs,
Terri

Hello Martha - I love your beautiful Christmas decor! The teacups you chose to share this week are perfect - I just adore your grands - they're so sweet! Imagine being so grown up at that age! I do appreciate you hosting and sharing,
Kathy

Veronica Roth said...

Martha, your tree is so lovely; I bet the children love to come see the decorations. Do they look forward tot hem each year? My children did and still do. I love the green depression glass cup the most. I've thought about collecting some green glass like that but haven't got around to it yet...lol...but then I think maybe there isn't enough space for a new collection. Wishing you loads of love and peace in these next few days of frantic Christmas preparations. :)

NanaDiana said...

Martha- Your depression glass is gorgeous. I have a few pieces of the red. Wonderful pics of the kids-in the end, that is what Christmas is about, isn't it? Blessings- xo Diana

Cindy said...

Hi Martha - Ok I'm convinced I have to have more depression glass it is amazing. I love your mantel it is decorated just perfect. And your tree, I love it dolls everywhere, I used to collect dolls but they were a lot larger. I don't think I flew at that age either, but they have a lot to keep them busy, cute. Merry Christmas

Bookie said...

Martha, your trees and décor are just wonderful...so beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Karen said...

Hi Martha,
Sorry I am slow to leave a comment today. My daughter drove me to visit my mother today so I am slowly recovering. I just love the red and green depression glass. Wow you have an amazing collection. Where did you get these treasures? Were some your mother's? Thank you for your visit and thank you for hosting with Terri today. Talk to you soon. Karen

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The red depression teacup is like a ruby on the tea table. I have not seen it at any of our antique shops.
Beautiful decorations at your house and I wish you a Merry Christmas.

Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

tags:Bolsos Michael Kors Rebajas,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors El Corte Ingles

L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

tags:Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Michael Kors Örhängen

La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
