Ladies, welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 229! So glad you could join us. I trust you all had a good 4th of July. I am aware that for many of you, the weather has been awful. Here in Los Angeles we have been HOT! I am thankful that we have had no big fires directly around us. We live in the foothills and are surrounded by mountains. Our family went to visit the new police station my Son-in-law works at, on the 4th. He is our policeman. I sat in a holding cell, rode in his police car and visited every place you do not want to be in, at a police station. It was a little unnerving to realize that our Son-in-law works such a dangerous job. It wasn't until I was in the police station that it really hit me. My daughter tells me I live in a safe bubble. Maybe I do, and I am so thankful for that safe feeling. I am also grateful for men like Kevin that are called to do that.
I have removed all my red, white & blue at home. It is always a little sad, like Christmas, I love to decorate for this holiday. Today I am sharing some pink tea cups starting with this demitasse Limoges. The pattern name is "The Ardennes," Theodore Haviland, Limoges, Frances. I only own 2 of these demitasse cups, however, I do own the entire dinnerware set in the pattern. I am so lucky. I put it on layaway about 20 years ago and I am so happy I did. It would be out of my financial reach now.
The next cup is also a Theodore Haviland, Limoges. Name of pattern is unknown. I have a small serve for 8 of this pattern. Sorry about the shadow.
Last but not least is this stunning Shelley, always a wonderful choice.
The picture at the top of the post is some of the lids on the Limoges dishes. They were just to beautiful not to display them.
Please continue to pray for our dear Terri and her son. She is still having health problems. Here is this week's link. Wish me luck. Hugs, Martha
