CELEBRATING ST. PATRICK'S DAY WITH TEA CUPS!



Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 209! Hope you are having a fun and safe St. Patrick's Day.  We are in the celebrating mood.  We had an earthquake and everything is fine, reason enough for me, yeah!  God is good.  I bet you didn't think that Mexican's celebrated St. Patrick's Day, but with a husband name Kelly, how can you not?  My son has a party to go to and I will be sharing my Irish tea cups.  Today is also Princess Maya's birthday. Do we need anymore reasons?  She is on her first week long school field trip and having a blast.  Her Mama is just trying to make it through the night! This is a picture of them both. 


Before I start, I want to share the invitations I have made for the wedding shower I told you about.  It is shape like a bride dress and  on the back, the information is done in calligraphy.  I think they are very cute.  What do you think?


Now down to business of Irish tea cups.  This first one is a Shelley.  It is a demitasse, as delicate as you can find.  



The next cup is a Royal Dover. Also quite cute, but the Shelley has it beat!



Of course, the tea pot on  is a Belleek. It is amazing looking.  



 Have a wonderful week.  Remember to love yourselves!  Not sure if Terri is going to post today. She is celebrating her birthday!  Happy Day my sweet friend (another reason to celebrate)!   Sorry, no pictures on my link. Have to wait for Terri.  She is the brains in the family!  Hugs!

Irish blessings to you all, Martha

Hi Martha,
Your shamrock teacups and teapot are just lovely! I stopped by to link up but it is telling me your link up is closed. I am on my way to have, hopefully, a good night's sleep so I will have to wait till morning now. Hope you can get the kinks worked out. Don't you just love computers when they do this to you? Have a lovely week and yes, Happy St. Patricks Day!

Blessings,
Sandi

Wonderful Belleek teapot! I just loved how you paired the cups and teapot with beautiful brooches--extra sparkly in each picture ;). Thanks for sharing your Irish teacups and teapot and thanks for stopping by my blog :). By the way, the invitation was beautiful!

I LOVE the bridal shower invitations. How many did you make ?

Your daughter & granddaughter look like you, and also look like they're having a lot of fun together.

Your Irish shamrock teacups are so pretty but I covet the tea pot !

Glad the earthquake did not cause any damage , goodness, an earthquake could wipe out a priceless tea-cup collection at your place !

I love all the teacups but that teapot! Sigh! I love them so pretty. I am searching for "reasonably" priced Lily of the Valley teacup. Sigh! SO cheerful visiting you here. Hugs, Anne
