Hello Ladies!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 210!  Easter is just around the corner, how is that possible?  What happens after you get to 60? Does life just goes on speed?  I am still in the mist of a remodel, a very slow process.  Maybe next month it will all be done. During the remodel, I see time, slow down!  Hope you are having a great week. I have begun to put Easter decor around me home. Love this time of year.  

Before I start, I want to give a short disclaimer to all you wonderful parties ladies, that I join every week.   Do you notice I hardly ever list those parties at the end of the post?  Well here is my reason.  You know I always have trouble with my link (like last week).  Without Terri's help, it just does not work.  (Like last week!)  I have always said Terri is the brains in the family.  It also seems that every time I make a list of all your lovely ladies parties, my post goes haywire.  It is like it take on a life of it's on and I don't know why.  So, in order for me to play,  I can only join the party on your home page. If this has kept you up at night, if you ever wondered why?  This is the answer,  I  always join your party but do not add the link at the end of the post,  to save my sanity.  I hope to one day be smart enough to work this out, but so far, my lights are on, but no one is home. Please do not get offend, I just can't figure it out.   Thank you, for being so faithful to this party.  

Now let's talk tea cups!  I am sharing some fun violets colors cups today.  Starting with with  this lovely Royal Albert, pattern name "Sweet Violets".  Beautiful.  

This next cup is a delicate, Leneige.  It is a demitasse cup that is wafer thin.  So very stunning, pictures do not do it just.

My last cup is a unsigned beautiful, violet cup.  I believe this a Made in Japan cup.  Not the highest quality, but lovely just the same.

My home decorations are starting to change to Easter.  Here are just a few glimpses of the transition.  Hope to show you the Elza dress next week.  We are having fittings this week.  

Of course I can't have a post without my Grandchildren.  Always a blessing to me. 

Have a wonderful week. Remember to be kind to yourself.  Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha,
I love Spring/Easter too! Your wee kiddies are sooo adorable. Almost as sweet as your teacups. Lol. Thank you for hosting tea time today. I wouldn't have a clue how to do the link-up party.
Have a wonderful week. Talk soon.

Hi Martha, I keep meaning to find a violets cup; they're my daughter Kerstin's favourite flowers and the second name of one of her children. So sweet. I love bunnies and so also love spring time decorations. Hope your renos are coming to the end. Big hugs from Mexico.

Definitely a violets kind of week, isn't it? I agree technology is a boon or a pain, depending on what it's doing any particular day! Love your teacups! Have lived thru a couple of remodels...they take forever!!! Thanks for hosting!

Winnie said...

Such lovely teacups you shared today Martha. Love your Easterscape (is that a word?). Snow here tonight, can't wait to decorate for Easter. Your grands are just darling!

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Dear Martha,
aren't Violets so cute flowers? I love the scent as much as the color. And your tea cups are a wonderful little collection. I haven't seen not one of them before. Really amazing that there exist so many different tea cups with Violets. You will see here very seldom a decor with Violets. Thank you for sharing this great china and your sweet Grandchildren. Always a delight to see them growing up. Thank you also for hosting this party.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hahaha - Martha - you need someone to sit with you and show you how to link up with everyone. Not hard - but there is a procedure.

As to violets - always a welcome sign of spring and lovely in the yard or on teacups as you have so well illustrated here. I think I like that demitasse best!

Find your favorite post from this month and join me at my All Things Bright And Beautiful Link-up - launching this week for the first time - it's a monthly event giving you a chance to "encore performance" an older post or link in a new one that illustrates a line from the hymn verse. Enjoy!

Lovely violet teacups. The first one is my favourite.


Hi sweet Martha!
Your spring post is stunning with the violet teacups, as usual. I'd love to find some dishes in lilac...I haven't seen anything yet! The best of course are all your handsome grandchildren!
Thank you for hosting this lovely tea party.

Lovely post as usual. I enjoy seeing the violet tea cups. Hope to have the "real" thing in my yard soon. And your beautiful grandchildren. Such a treat.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Kathy said...

Beautiful, beautiful teacups, Martha - love the violets! Your grandchildren are marvelous - their smiles could melt the heart! You're truly blessed, I am delighted to join the party - albeit we had iced tea!

Beautiful cups, and love the hand
painted dish. I used to China paint. It's a lost art. Those photo's are darling of your Grand Children.
Easter can't come soon enough for me.

Hi Martha,
I love all your teacups dressed with violets. They are so sweet and I'm swooning. I adore your Easter decor, especially the little nest filled with flowers. Your grands are adorable, too. Yes, I was just thinking yesterday, how time just flies by. One month starts and then it's over in a flash! Thanks for hosting and enjoy your week before it's gone!

Hello Martha,
I am really late visiting. We're having some crazy weather right now. Your violet teacups are so pretty and I love the bird's nest at the top of your post. Always fun to see your grandchildren's smiling faces! Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day.
