BLACK & WHITE TEA CUPS, WISHING EVERYTHING WAS THAT SIMPLE!




Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 231!  It has been a sad week for the world, with changes that make me wonder if anything will ever feel the same.  I don't like to share sad things on my blog, but how could I not share how grieved I am. My heart goes out to all the families who have suffered loss from the terror of men, fire, war and rain.   The Lord's heart must grieve for His children.  My world has been busy with a continued summer enjoying my grandchildren.  For now, my Son is home and for that I am grateful.  He enjoyed his first helicopter ride into a fire and the grandchildren have enjoyed face painting and the L.A. Zoo.






Today I will be sharing black and white tea cups.  They are hard to find, but so well worth it when you do.  I start with  "Señorita" by Royal Albert of England.  With the red rose in the center, it is just stunning tea cup. 




The next cup is a Royal Stafford also from England.  All the black part of this cup is a flat black.  The gold design is all hand painted. 



The last cup is Clarence China from England.  My pictures do not do this cup justice.  Don't you think the cup is a great shape? I wish everything would be as simple as black & white!




So many fun parties happened last week, I am grateful that you continue to visit our little Tea Party each week.  Our dear friend Terri and her son are still very gravely ill.  Please do not forget them in your prayers.  She is very grateful, as am I.  Our God is still the God that heals.  Hope your summer continues to be filled with love and joy!  Hugs, Martha

What a lovely way to portray such a simple concept.

Yes, we are going through some hard and sad times in our world lately. Wish it was black and white at times too! Your teacups are stunning as every week, wow, what a collection you have dear Martha! Thanks for this lovely party and keep enjoying your time with families and thank God every minute of it!

I wonder He hasn't come back yet....Holding family very close right now...black and white indeed a metaphor. Thanks for hosting and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea.

My favorite is the black lacy one. Wonderful grandkids and collection....Christine

I try not to even watch the news anymore. It's depressing. I'm constantly stating that someone needs to come up with a Good News Station, and I don't mean any kind of religion....just Good Happy News! There's way more good things happening in the world, but we never hear about it, unless we search...online, I guess! If I ever become a millionaire, (not sure how!)I will make sure that kind of TV station comes to fruition! :)
Sorry ---- I didn't mean to get on my soapbox! I also wanted to say how adorable your grandkids are and that picture of your granddaughter is priceless! Your son is a brave man! And I will say prayers for Terri and her son. I had no idea they were ill.

BECKY said...

P.S. Well...I completely forgot to mention how much I LOVE the B&W tea cup sets! My favorites are the first one with all the lace design, and the last one with the beautifully shaped cup!

I love your Black and White Tea Cups. They are all so pretty; especially with the Red Roses. Each one so interesting.

Marta said...

Hello from Spain: Great pictures of your family. I'm glad your son is home. Nice pictures of your grandchildren. Great teacups on black. Very elegant. Keep in touch

Beautiful cups Martha! Thanks for hosting!

Hi Martha,
I love your black themed teacups, and I'm especially fond of the lace edged one. I'm glad your son is home and safe. Thank you for hosting your party. I'm still praying for Terri and her son.

KathyB. said...

I agree with you Martha, most things really are that simple but we complicate life in so many ways because we don't want to do what is right and good. That sinful old self so often wants its' way no matter the morality and sin reaps victory over the consequences of bad choices, often hurting so many beyond the bad choices & actions of so few.

It is good to remember & rejoice in all that is good especially in these times.

Your son is so handsome and brave, and the grandchildren look cute even painted !

Love the teacups as always. Thank-you for hosting this .

Karen said...

Hi Martha,
Sorry I am late to link up today. I am so upset with all of the sad events of the world too. Glad your son is back home safe and your grandchildren must make you smile. Children are such a great way to make us happy and forget our worries. Love that Senorita teacup! Sooooo beautiful! Thanks for hosting tea time Martha! Let's hope the news is better tonight.
Karen

Hi Martha, I am your newest follower, and have just linked for the first time with my vintage Quimper Soleil! Thank you for hosting. Your black & white tea cups are beautiful. The Senorita reminds me of the chapel veils we wore in church when I was very young.

So happy your son returned safely home. Prayers for all those in the line of fire, in whatever form their fire may be.
Best,
Rita C at Panoply

Hello Dear Martha...

The world is in such despair in many places. But we know how we can keep peace-----in our own hearts and through the Lord.

Thanks for your visits, Martha. I am also happy to see that you stopped by. Susan

Carrie said...

The black and white teacups are lovely! I really like that Royal Stafford set with the beautiful gold. Your pictures looks so great with the pretty jewelry (as usual!). Thanks for hosting and leaving such a sweet comment. Have a great week :)

The black and white teacups are really rather special, aren't they? Thanks for sharing them with us, and the photo's of the family. You will miss them once school starts again.

BECKY said...

Hello again Martha and everyone! I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to the other participants yet. Yesterday was very busy for me, and today and tonight will be, also. I promise to catch up, though, asap! Wishing everyone a beautiful, blissful day!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Oh I absolutely love those teacups. I have had a few teacups with black in them, but give away as gifts or sell them. I wish I hadn't now, seeing your pairings. How pretty.

Thank you for hosting. Hugs.

Marilyn said...

Thanks for visiting me at Delights of the Heart today. Love your black tea cups.

Hi Martha, I am with you. This whole week has been so sad and depressing! It is incomprehensible! We don't know where to begin. But for now, all we can do is pray, and I also would like to pray for Terri and her son. I didn't know they were ill. Thank you for hosting and I am glad I am able to join. You are blessed with such beautiful family.

Blessings,
Aida

Absolutely stunning, black and white is going to be my next collection for sure, I think it is sexy - after 50 floral tea cups sexy is nice, elegant, and lacy.
