PRECIOUS MOMENTS WITH CHILDREN & TEA CUPS THE ICING ON THE CAKE!



Hello ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 206! I am late! I first want to apologize for last week.  I had linky problems, as you noticed. You could not leave a comment and I could not link back to visit your posts.  It was a huge pain.  I finally just remove the link altogether. If I have the same problems this week, I will go back to the old link without pictures and you may just have to visit both Terri and I to add to your link.  Hopefully, I can get it fix and that won't happen.  I don't like to give you extra work.  I know your time is precious. 


Now, the reason why I am late.  I was at Disneyland with my all my children and my grandchildren.  This is a picture of the three grown children altogether.  They are hard to keep still enough to photograph so this is special to me.  We plan to celebrate several birthdays all together. It is so much fun to go there with your Grandchildren. Nothing make this Mama as happy as having all my children around me.  The feeling is amazing.    If you are ever lucky enough to go to Disneyland with your Grandchildren, don't miss it.  It is worth every penny for the memories. 



 I am also in the process of planning a large wedding shower for the middle of next month.  It is going to be a tea for about 60 ladies.  I will share it all with you.  I will be starting the invitations this week. Stilling working on the Disney Frozen costumes for my granddaughters. (Yes, I will show you pictures!)  My home is still under construction to repair termite damage.  They are working on my back deck and storage area, of course it is going to rain tomorrow.  It never rains in California!  So, the answer to this long drought, is to have your precious holiday items exposed to the weather and it will rain.  Why didn't I think about this before?



I am sharing two amazing cups this week.  The first is this Haviland Limoges cup.  It is a large cup, maybe it was to be used for coffee?  I just love it.  Look at all the detail. Amazing, that is all I have to say about that!



Cup No. two was a gift from my best friend's mother.  It is a Lefton.  Just look at the pedestal base.  I have several Lefton's and each one is so special and different.  



Well, have a wonderful week.  I promise to visit all this week to make up for last week. Hugs to you all, Martha

Hi Martha,
I am so pleased that you got away to Disneyland with your sweet family. You look so very happy in the pics. That pedestal teacup is absolutely gorgeous! So amazingly beautiful ~ I have never seen one like it. The flowers remind me of American Beauty but the shape is so much more elegant! Thank you for hosting with Terri today. Have a wonderful week! Karen

Martha, what a fun time it looks like you had at Disneyland! Just beautiful teacups too! Thanks for hosting!

I wondered why I couldn't comment last week. I am very fond of the Lefton teacup. I am enjoying seeing all the various tea cups with pedestals.
Thanks for sharing yours.

Hello from Spain: great dinnerware. I understand your happiness with your children and grandchildren. Disneyland is a fabulous destination. Nice pictures. Keep in touch

Hi Martha,
What a wonderful time you must have had! You all look very pleased to be there. Love your teacups today. Pink is always a favourite with me. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely week.

Blessings,

Oh, Boo, Martha! I messed up on cropping my image and now I have a big blank box. Well - it has the teacup YOU sent me!!! I'm sorry I messed that up. Now, it will be a mystery to everyone without a nice thumbnail. Anyway to fix that? I suppose it will show up the same on Terri's, too.

Anyway - a big thank you for the teacup! It went so nicely with a book I also received in a give-away. A perfect teatime post - tea and books!

Now - as to your cups - gorgeous, as usual. Love the pinks as we're ready for some spring pink with too much snow - more on the way tonight. Enjoy your rain - and glad you too great joy in visiting a happy place with your family!
Joy!
Kathy

SOOOOOO happy you all got to go to Disneyland. How wonderful.

The cups are gorgeous. You have such an awesome collection.

Sending lots of hugs to you and your family. Susan

Hi Martha,
I am back.
Hope all your families are in good health. I did not have time to catch up with your posts.

Your grandchildren are so pretty. I bet you had good time with them in Disneyland.

I love all your pink cups, I would like to get those too ha ha.

By the way, hope you enjoy the cup from Royal Albert-- senorita. It is a pretty cup, isnt it?

Take care,
Felicity

Gosh that's so lovely! Last time I was in Disneyland with all three of mine Chloe was about 2yrs old and Jonathan and Kerstin were 14 and 12. Wouldn't that be something to hope for one day; all three of them plus the grandchildren. :) I love the two little cups and But must tell you that my heart was lost to the elegant bust with the chains of pearls and the beautiful broach. There's something so Olivia de Havilland about it. Hope your preparations for the shower go well as well as the work on the damage. And if you can't beat 'em, then go have a little dance in the rain. :) Big hugs my friend. :)

Disney with the whole family would have been fun. I like the two pink teacups shared and I'll bet you enough teacups for all 60 women at the shower.

Terri said...

Hello Martha,
I am so glad you had such a lovely time with your family at Disney! You are so right, having all your family around you at one time is amazing!
Your two cups today are so very lovely! Stunners!
I hope you have a good week, and that it rains well before your tea and not during your tea!
Hugs,
Terri

What a wonderful trip! Lovely tea cups - as usual! Can't wait to hear more about the tea for 60! Yikes! Happy Teacup Tuesday!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

I love how dainty the white teacups with a flower only inside are. Good luck for you very big tea party!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Looks like you had so much fun with your family! Hosting a tea for 60 is a lot of work! so kind of you. I love the pink tea cup, and have always wanted one with a pedestal base, so elegant.

Beth said...

Hi Martha, I love your tea set, and your Lefton teacup. Beautiful! You have beautiful grandchildren and I'm so glad you got to spend time together at Disneyland. Precious memories!

Disney fun shows in every smile....great memories and thank you for sharing them with us. I went to lunch yesterday at a wonderful tea room in Techumseh Michigan. They had a lovely assortment of tea cups for sale and on display.

Hi Martha - Just a note on your blog to mention that I have gotten two spam emails from your email address this past week. You might want to check into that. Sorry if you've been hacked - what a horror to straighten such a thing out! Let me know what comes of it. I get the emails wanting me to follow links that are very suspicious - your photo even comes up as from Martha's Favorites. Sorry.
Joy!
Kathy
