Feb 3, 2014


Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 203!  February, the month of Love!  I started today to change my home over to February colors.  It is always so much fun to decorate for February.  I still am not getting the right lighting to take pictures with all the changes I have made.  As you can see the pictures are a bit dark,  it also doesn't help that it is clouding outside too.  Good news, Sophia is doing so much better. Thank you for your prayers. It rained yesterday for about 20 minutes in the Foothills.  My plants were so happy.  Maybe we got a quarter inch, maybe? Better than nothing, which is the norm for us. 

I spent the day with Termite Inspectors.  Thought it might be a good idea to have it done before you see me on the  evening news.  "Woman found on bed, no walls, Termites had eaten all the walls, news at eleven!"  It would not be pretty, so it got scheduled for next week.  No tenting, because of Grandchildren and dogs, so things should be easier than normal.  

I am sharing some fun cups today.  The first one is this Royal Albert, "Señorita."  Love the black lace with the red rose.  Can a tea cup look sexy?

This next cup is also the same color, black with a red rose and with hand painted, gold details.  It is a Royal Stafford from England.  It is just stunning and perfect for use in the month of February.

The last cup is also black and red.  It is a Foley from England.  Pattern name is "Florence."   I did not realize I had such a large collection of black and white tea cups.  I will share more of them next week.

Here is a picture of Sophia calling her Daddy on the phone, while Noah is having a "Star Bucks" break (apple juice). Do notice Sophia's heals!   Terri and I were so happy at the large group that joined us last week.  Hope we have another fun party again this week.   Here is the link!

Sending hugs, Martha

Those are the perfect selections for Valentines Day and very unusual with black! I think the Phantom would have loved them too! Ha!


Oh those teacups are adorable, you have the most amazing ones and what a collection. That Little lady in high heles is gorgeous too! I love the Señorita cup, so special! Thank you for hosting this lovely tea party.

Terri said...

Hello Martha,
Lovely tea post! Your cups today are so classy and dramatic! I love them all and Florence really catches my eye.
I am so glad to hear Sophie is feeling better. That is a relief!

Susan said...

Hello dear Martha...Your cups are especially gorgeous this week. Oh, that black "lace" one is the bomb.

So glad to hear of Sophia's recovery.

How about any news regarding your heart tests?

Lovely post, Martha. Hugs. Susan

Love the black lace teacup! Yes Sexy but also elegant!

Snap said...

Martha, glad to hear Sophia is much better. Love the black and white with splashes of red -- all of these teacups are romantic. Senorita really grabbed my eye. A great start to Valentine's Day. Happy Tea Day!

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Dear Martha,
what a luck that termites dont eat tea cups. At least your collection would be safe.
Whow, Señorita is really a sexy tea cup. So very Spanish with the black lace mantilla. The next cups are very pretty, too but in a different manner. I love to see the differences. So cute to see your grandkids growing. Have a great time and thank you for sharing and hosting this event.

First of all I don't know why my photo isn't visible (at least to me):(. I love your tea cups-especially the one with the black lace-wow! Now I'm dying to get out to hunt some teacups to add to my very small collection. Oh, gorgeous ruby glass pieces in your table vignette too. Adorable grandchildren :)

Linda @ Friendship Tea said...

Beautiful, beautiful teacups!!

Two Cottages And Tea said...

Beautiful teacups to celebrate Valentines Day and what sweet grandkids! Thank you for hosting!

Karen said...

Hi Martha,
I am so pleased to hear that Sophia is better. Such a sweet pic of her and your grandson. You really made me laugh today with your comment about the lacy black teacup. Lol. It is a beauty! The Florence is magnificent. I love the pink roses on the inner cup. Thank you for hosting today!
Have a wonderful week! Karen

Marta said...

Hello from Spain: a collection of tea cups are fabulous. Tiu collection is awesome. I am happy that Sophia is better. Nice pictures. Keep in touch

Kerrie said...

Hi! I love the teacup and saucer with the black lace on them! I have never seen any like that before. Have a most wonderful day!


Thank you for having me again at your lovely tea party dear Martha!

The Charm of Home said...

Hi Martha,
So glad to hear Sophia is doing better! That is a sexy teacup! I was thinking the same thing.:) My favorite is the Foley, it is gorgeous!
Thanks for hosting!

allisamazing said...

What a delight to the eyes - all those beautiful teacups! I am going to pull out some of mine and join in next week!

KathyB. said...

It is good to read Sophia is doing much better. ( and that you had a termite inspection so we'll not be seeing you the news regarding termites ! )

Your black & white teacups are really bold, with the sweet touches of roses and lace, yes, I think you showed us a teacup one could consider "sexy".

Denise said...

I love the Royal Albert Senorita. Now I want one! Thank you for your post.

Cindy said...

Absolutely, a tea cup can be sexy, your lacy one sure is. Although this is the most sexy one I'v ever seen, the lace is breath-taking.

I noticed the little high heels, (smile) Handsome he is having a cup.
You sure have plenty of tea cups and lovely pictures to share, thank you.

xinex said...

You sure have a lot of romantic teacups, Martha. And your grandkids get cuter everyday....christine

Thank you Martha and Terii, for hosting one of the biggest tea parties online. It's always nice to see what other bloggers prepared for tea.
Good to hear you had some rain, us here in OZ just sweating from extreme heat with no rain forecast.

Have a good week.



Dee said...

First I have to mention I am still smiling at Sophia heels :) and that I am glad to hear she feels better. The lace tea cup is one I have never seen before...stunning. Also I found something I collect similar to you...I have a few of your perfume bottles pictured on the tray in photo two.

Cindy said...

Martha, I've been out on the hunt for this lace tea cup or one like. I fell in love with it. Can you tell me where you got it ccousineau@eastlink.ca
