GIVE AWAY AND TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 201!





Hello ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday, No. 201!  Hope you have had a wonderful week.  I have still not heard the final results of the heart tests I took last week.  I guess, no new is good news.  The grandchildren have been very sick, especially Sophia. Please keep her in your prayers.  My fireman has been sent out of town to fight fires, California needs it to rain.  I guess you can say, life has been a little stressful.  Can you believe we are more than half way through the month of January?  I have been working on my yard.  It is hard to know what to do, because our days have been 85 degrees around here.  Plants are confused. Rose trimming is going on regardless. I hope we will not be skipping winter this year. 




After the shock of sending my son off to fight fires in the middle of winter, I have started to craft.  I am working on a scrapbook for Noah and I am looking for a craft to do with ladies in the church whose skills very, a lot.  If you have any ideas, please email me.  This is a once a year event I do for about 40 plus ladies.  Love that I am starting to see some Valentine crafts on your blogs, as well.  Life just seems to move too fast these days. 






Have some fun tea cups to share with you today. They are not the ones I have been looking for, however, I don't think you have ever seen these before.  I have some beautiful clear Fostoria tea cups that I was wanting to share, but can't remember where I stored them.  Remember, I changed everything around this past summer, because of the remodel?  Everything went into different places and I have just forgotten where I have placed them.  The good thing is I have found cups I totally forgot I had. I am a piece of work! You must think I live in one of those Hoarder Houses.  I probably have hoarder tendencies (not admitting to anything), but really you can walk in my house, I promise. I just have too many collections to keep track of.  I am getting better, really. 




Today I am sharing pink depression glass.  I did not realize I had such a variety of designs.  These two cups are quite simple.  I don't know who made them.  I do know they are not Elegant Glass.  Each are very simple and different, perfect for a Spring day. 







This last cup is a Haviland Limoges.  Also a simple design, but can Limoges ever be simple?  Those that have followed this blog for anytime, know they are my all time favorite manufacturer.  I use Limoges whenever I can.  My everyday dishes are Limoges. 





Don't forget I am having a give away.  You can read what you need to do in order to win this cup on last week's post.   It seems I will run out of month before I can share all the January decor with you.  Here is a picture of Kyle and Sophia, you can tell she is sick.  She just wanted Uncle to hold her.  


Have a great week. Sending blessings your way!  Martha

Susan said...

Ohhhhh, Martha. Poor little Sophia. Oh, those rosy cheeks, probably from fever.

And your handsome boy fighting fires. Oh dear oh dear.

And waiting for heart test results.

My dear Martha, this is time to really, really realize that God is in charge. He is in control.

And Martha. HE WILL TURN ALL THINGS TO GOOD.

You and your sweet family will be in my prayers starting tonight. Hugs. Susan

I hope the baby is better soon and that your son is safe. I don't want winter to go away. I can't stand to think it is getting warm already.

I love the bird teapot and the Limoge collection is beautiful. The depression glass is pretty too! I have one tiny piece that I got in Paris many years ago.

Beth Laverty said...

Another LOVELY grouping of tea things! Thanks so much for sharing. I have a few Limoge pieces from my Grandmother which I love.

Hi Martha. Hope those grandbabies are better. LOVE the chicadee teapot! So cute! I have been reading about the drought condition, and we to the north are having the same lack of rain, but not the heat. Hope there is some relief soon! LOvely teacups, as usual. Have a great week and thanks for hosting.

Hi Martha,
I love your depression glass, Limoges and sparkly jewels today! So very pretty! Sweet Sophia looks upset ~ poor darling. My daughter who is 20 was ill last week and had trouble getting her energy back. We are having an outbreak of a flu called h1n1 here in B.C. I am sorry to hear about your need for rain. Hopefully the showers will come soon. Thank you for hosting tea today. Have a wonderful week! Karen

Awe, your poor little Sophia! I hope she feels better soon. I so hate to see little ones sick! And your fireman off fighting fires this time of year! You have had a stressful week with waiting for your tests to come back and everything else. God bless you, my friend.
Your teacups are lovely; especially loving the Limoges! Thanks for the chance to win your pretty teacup, Martha. Do take care.

Blessings,
Sandi

Martha,
I too, have "hoarder tendencies" but you can walk through my home as well, but I am going to have to get rid of some things....Etsy store, here I come! I love your tea cups...I have a small teacup fetish...really...small teacups! And I do have some pretty and fun larger ups, but not many. I have to limit myself somewhere, right? And I get to enjoy yours!, along with everyone else who shares on your blog!
such tea party fun here!
hugs,
Betsy
