TEA CUPS AND NO LINK, IT HAS A MIND OF IT'S OWN!


Good morning ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 232!  Sorry for being late I am having a link problem.  I was ready yesterday, but the link was not cooperating.   I have a horrible time with codes.  I try very hard not to use them because, I always mess things up.  So, here is the plan. There will be no link this week.  Please just leave a comment and I will visit that way for this week.   I will try harder next week.  If I had continued this week, I would have taken my computer and tossed it out the window.  Don't know about the white areas on the post or if you see them, but that's it, I am done!
   



I have good news about our Terri.  She had a better week and was able to do a few things that she loves to do.  Thank you for your continued prayers for her and her son.  Our God is Faithful! 


Once again this week I will be sharing black and white tea cups.  I am still wishing  things would be that easy. Wanting my Grandchildren to live in world filled with peace.   The first tea cup I would like to share is this Mitterteich, Bavaria, Germany.  I love the crown shape pedestal it sits on.  Truly a beautiful shaped cup. It features a gold hand painted design, both inside and out.




The second cup is a Foley from England. Richly decorated with large roses on a black design.  



The last cup is call English Toile.  It is a newer cup and part a small tea set.  Black and white toile is always so classic looking. 




Here is a picture of our three grown children.  Each so beautiful, both inside and out!   I am truly blessed. 


Hugs, Martha

Martha: Your teacups are lovely as always. I am praying for peace too! After two times that didn't work, I switched to InLintz.

Sorry you are having troubles. But take time for a restful tea break. That is always what I have to do.

How wonderful to hear good news about Terri! Don't stress, I feel I'm joining the party just the same sweet Martha. I love the plate with the lovely lady figurines, such gorgeous vignette.
Yes, I wish my daughters and granddaughters would live in a safer and peaceful world too, but I guess this world has never been a peaceful one, there has been wars in every generation. Let's just pray we are away from it and that's it!
Big hugs,
FABBY

Hi Martha,
I especially love the teacup with the roses in it, but they're all beautiful. I certainly understand your issues with technical difficulties.
I'm happy to hear that Terri is doing better.

Your black and white teacups are terrific! I really like that interesting one with the circle pattern--so different, and the gold makes it so pretty. Beautiful pictures with the brooches, as usual. Have a great week :)

Love all your pretty tea cups and the jewels you use to accent them.
Gorgeous!

Oh, LOVE the B&W china! I had a lovely set, but downsized to a smaller home and it sadly had to go to a new home, too. Love seeing those happy smiling faces on your children, too. So wonderful that they let you post that on your blog - sure sign they love and adore their mama!

Now before I go and in case you don't know - I want to tell you about a great giveaway over at Jan's blog at Sew and Sew Farm. http://sewandsowfarm.blogspot.com/
Some LOVELY quilt panels and supplies!

And please do come back and see me again soon, too! Cindy from TheCranesNest.com

hugs,

Never seen a cup like the blue pheasant cup. I have made up my mind not to do the linky things, twitter, etc. It's all to much, I do have a life other than the Net.
Your family is darling. yvonne

Teacups with black in them are so rich looking and I must say the first you shared is my favourite.
I'm hit and miss this summer with the link parties but have done no obligation post reading.
