A CELEBRATION OF A SPECIAL DAY LASTS ALL WEEKEND!






Hi Ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No.  The big wedding I have been working on was this weekend.  The Bride looked beautiful, the venue was very cute and there was fun for all to have.  All three of my Grandchildren danced until the wore themselves out.  The picture below is of them dancing with parents.  I kind of cropped Maya's Dads' head off,  Noah's Mom is also missing, sorry.  The grandchildren always distract me. It was so wonderful to spend the weekend with all my children.  



My room addition is in full swing, yeah!  It had slowed down to a crawl, but thank God we are back in gear.  It is so hard to believe it is June already.  We are going to blink and it will be Christmas time, have mercy.  This month I was the featured member on Etsy.  I have been selling on Etsy for years, this is a big first for me.  I will be changing my home to a red, white & blue decor.  It always feels like summer's officially here when those colors go up.  




I will be sharing red, white and blue cups the next few weeks, starting with this trio.  It  is one of my favorites cups.  As you might remember I collect portraits, so to find them is tea cups is so perfect.  They tend to be pricey so I do not have many.  This first cup is a Royal Vienna, Portrait, Tea Cup.  It is 24Kt gold trimmed, featuring a lovely portrait design.  Most of Royal Vienna portrait cups are just out of my price range. 




This next cup is a cream and burgundy color and was made in Germany, US Zone.  I have taken a picture of the signature because my eye can't see it as well as I use to. 



The last cup is Red Transferware, by Palissy Pottery.  I have just recently started collecting Red Transferware.  It is Sandi's fault over at Rose Chintz Cottage.  She has an amazing collection.  I just fell in love with Transferware because of her. If you get a chance please visit her and you will see some stunning stuff!


I was lucky enough to win a $25 gift certificate from Kimberly at JOYtobheld.etsy.com and this wonderful hand made tag.  Love that it has a tea cup. Stop by to visit her when you get a chance. 
Great news, I believe Terri is back home this week so I should have a better link.  I am so sorry about last week.  I just have so much trouble with this.  That is the main reason I do not list who's party I am following, it always makes my link so wacky.  Have a wonderful week. Thanks for loving me regardless of my lack of talent!  Hugs, Martha

I love the red, white, and blue theme. And there's nothing more handsome than a man in a military uniform!

How exciting that you were featured on Etsy. Hope it brings much new business your way.

The addition sounds exciting! More room to display your beautiful collections, right?

Have a beautiful day.

Love,
Patti
