Hello Ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 217! Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I know sometimes this day can be hard.  Maybe your Mother is gone or you cannot see her for what ever reason, so I do hope you enjoyed your day!  Mine day was one of the best Mother's Day ever!  My children and grandchildren were in church with me.  Nothing makes me happier.  I received an amazing pink sapphire and diamond ring from my children! I was shocked to say the least!  Of course, I also received roses and bath items as well as some much needed tools for my garden.  All the way around I scored!  Lunch and dinner was so special with family.  Wait, I saved the best for last!  My Sophia got "Dedicated to the Lord"!  Like I said the best day ever.  Look at this picture, she looks like an angel. 

I was also lucky enough to get some amazing tea cups at an estate sale this weekend.  I was so excited, I could just squeal.  Then I got home and thought.  What I am I going to do with all these new tea cups?  I am not a hoarder!? Ok, so to solved the problem, I put at least a dozen up on my website. I was so proud of myself.  I got rid of more than what I brought in.  I did it quickly so I would not change my mind.  I am trying to keep the tea cups that have roses as part of design or my absolute favorites.  I was good.  I felt better, see, I told you I am not a hoarder.

I am going to share some of those new cups today.  Starting with this amazing Aynsley.  Tell me, how could I pass it up?  It was only $6, it was practically free.

This second cup is a Royal Cauldon.  I love the simplicity of it. 

This last cup is also an Aynsley.  It too was only $6.  Isn't just beautiful?

I also picked up this wonderful Limoges, hand painted plate! 

Have a wonderful week.  Hugs, Martha



Beautiful collection of teacups dear must have the largest and most gorgeous onesof all! Hope you had a wonderful M'sDay.

Your new teacups are beautiful, Martha, but not nearly as beautiful as your Sophia.

oh my - I want to go to that estate sale! What beauties! I'd love to have seen what you put on your website - all gone now? Must have been lovely! I would have taken them all home, too, and then tried to convince my husband that I am not a teacup hoarder. Yes.

Your grandchild looks adorable! I love the teacups, and I like how you dressed your bust with a crown and jewelry. It sounds like Mother's Day was wonderful! xoxo

Hi Martha,
I so happy that you had such a wonderful Mother's Day! That is so special that your children got you a ring - Wow! The pic of Sophia is so precious. She really is a darling! I love your estate finds. The Aynsley and Royal Albert Moss Rose are my favourites. I have found a few pieces of Moss Rose recently. Have a great week! Karen

Martha, you certainly had a fantastic Mother's Day! The princess does look like an angel in her photo. You scored big time with all the beautiful cups and saucers. They all are keepers with each one so different. Have a lovely week!

Oh that Sophia is a doll! Thanks for hosting and congrats on her special day!

The Aynesley is stunning and your Mother's Day was a true blessing for you. Your family was so thoughtful, but I think they know they have a very special mother & Grandmother.

Hi Martha,
I made it around, lol. Lucky lady to find all those tea cups. This was a wonderful time for you and Little Sophia looks like a doll in her dress - you must be so proud grandma. Thank you for sharing this tea party

Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson said...

Oh my, she is a little angel! What wonderful estate treasures. Love all that you kept! Happy to be joining the party today.

Carrie said...

She's so cute! You found wonderful tea cups--and did a great job showing your non-hoarder tendencies by listing the tea cups!! That is more will power than I have. $6.00 is definitely a good buy for those two beautiful teacups. I think that pink and gold one with the rose is my favorite :) Thanks for hosting!

Susan said...

Dear Martha..Sophia is, indeed, an angel. She is just the prettiest darling and your heart must be soooo filled with love.

So happy you did well at that estate sale. Your new cups are the pizazz! Susan

Dee said...

I love the way you accessorize your tea cups to photograph them. You could be a photographer for a magazine. And what can I say about little Sophia ...she is adorable...cute as a button. :) Her dedication picture is a treasure.

Bernideen said...

You know Martha I finally found out how you feel when your linky party doesn't work. I could never get it to work this week even when I did it over and over. I never did get it up!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Lovely cups! My favorite is that pink Ansley one. I've never found such a cup for only $6. Great find. Your granddaughter is just precious. I'm glad you had such a beautiful Mother's Day, Martha.
