Hello Ladies:  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 228!  Hope you have had a wonderful week. I know the weather across the country has been horrible.  Please keep save. Los Angeles will be starting a wind and heat event. Never good for us.  We had some major events happen this week. First, I want to tell you about Terri. Her and her son are in need of prayer.  They are both struggling with health issues and need us to cover them with prayer.  She is going to try  and post sometime in July, if she can.  Terri is a strong and amazing women, I know God will work a miracle for her family.  Any details really need to come from her, what she needs the most is prayer and we can do that!

On a lighter note, Noah, received his "yellow belt" in Karate and my "Hot Shot"  Son, got to give his parents a tour of the station and many unanswered questions were answered.  It was a great family day and we all enjoyed our education in fighting forest fires.  

The Fourth of July is just around the corner and like many of you, plans are already being made.  I want to share some fun cups in the Red, White & Blue colors once again.   The first cup is a beautiful Aynsley.  The colors are a cream, dark blue and a stunning red rose center. 

The next cup is also an Aynsley.  This time with a white, blue and red design. Both Aynsley's have these amazing handles.  They look like ears.

The last cup I am sharing is a hand painted cup with stunning red roses and blue and gold design by Nippon.  My pictures do not do it justice at all. 

Here is a peek at the rest of my Grandchildren.  As you guessed, I am doing the Linky again. I just hope it is as good as last week.  Have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July!  

Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha, What a lovely family you have. Darling grandkids! All of your teacups are so beautiful and I like how you display your lovely jewelry with them. I certainly will pray for Terri and her son! Also for your son who has such a dangerous job. I've met Smokey the bear here in my town. My cousin use to work for the D&R and that was one of his jobs to be Smokey! His son fights fire's also and has flown out west in the past to help
fight them.
Blessings, Nancy

Hi Martha,
I love all of your teacups this week, especially the Nippon. I am very worried about Terri and her son. I will keep them in my prayers. I am sorry that I am linking up late but yesterday was Canada Day and I had a lot of company throughout the day since we live on a Castle Park where all of the July 1st activities take place. I want to show you some wedding pics but mine are not as good as the photographers. Happy Summer! Karen

You have such cute grands....each one has beautiful eyes. I love the way you added sparkle to your cup photo's with the pins. you do a real nice vignette with them. I have been tempted to start collecting cups again after visiting your blog...I just do not have the room...maybe in the future,,,till then i will just visit and admire yours.
