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
