Hello Ladies!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 233!   You are not going to believe this, it rained in Southern California!  The ground was wet for a little while, I was so excited.  It needs to rain a lot here, and every little bit helps.  I wish it would rain where my son is.  He is fighting the big fire near the California, Oregon border.  I do hope you are all doing well.  Summer is going to come to an end soon and my Grandchildren will be back in school.  I  have had the most wonderful summer with them ever.  

This weekend we were at an American Girl Tea Party.   Just the girls went, it was so much fun.  I wish I had invented that doll.  The place was full and it is huge.  There were
girls with more than one doll walking out of the door.   Each doll is over $100.  It is an amazing place. It has a hospital, beauty salon, various history sections, clothes to match the doll and little girl and the Cafe of course,  My granddaughters were no exception, they each have more than two dolls and plus clothes.  The price of the clothes is unbelievable.  Why couldn't I have invented that?  Tea was very cute, Sophia was unimpressed, but Maya was in her element.  Sophia just loved being with her cousin. 

I am sharing yellow tea cups today.  Starting with this lovely tea cup by Taylor & Kent.  It is has lovely mums and is just perfect for tea. 

The next cup is a Shelley.  Pattern name is "Heather." For some reason this cup does not look like a Shelley to me.  It is very cute.

Next I am sharing this amazing antique, stackable, Lord Nelson, teapot.  It as a gift to me from a missionary friend.  It is just so perfect.  I have never used it.  I don't want anything to happen to it.  That is usually not my style, I use everything, but this one is so special and hard to get.  I just can't bring myself to do it. 

Terri, has told me she is feeling improvement, for that we are grateful.  She has begun to do some the the things she loves. Thanks for your continued prayers.  We just might have her back for Tea Cup Tuesday very soon.  They are going to start the inside of my room addition this week, so I am going to be very  busy with that.  Have a great week.  Keep your fingers crossed about the Linky.  I was so frustrated with the Linky last week.  I think Noah could have done a better job.  Thanks for your faithfulness. Hugs, Martha



Beautiful 'American G'girls' Martha! The teacups are all gorgeous, and I'm love with the stacked up Nelson one...just darling!

I'm sure your granddaughters had a wonderful time at the AG store. I love your teacups, but especially the Shelley one with the scene. Your stackable set is so pretty and special.
Thanks for hosting and for the update on Terri.

Hi Martha,
Tea parties are so much fun with the little ones. I hope to have one with my little granddaughter next time she is home. Your teacups are lovely and I'm swooning over the stacked tea set! Enjoy your day, my friend, and thank you for sharing your pretties with us.

You inspired me to do a black and red Tea Cup Tuesday with your lovely black tea cups. Your yellows are lovely today. The Taylor and Kent looks like it has a round little baby belly. How adorable!

The girls look so happy at the American doll tea! Your teacups are always gorgeous, but I'm love with the sets with a scene. So different from anything I have. Thank you for hosting and Happy Tea Day!

Those two are such sweethearts, look at those SMILES!

Your china, as always, is gorgeous.

Good luck with the home improvement addition, just keep remembering the mess and inconvenience is SO worth it in the end.

Glad to hear about Terri. Sure miss her.

Thanks for hosting, dear Martha!

Hello Dear Martha....

The grandkids are getting so big.

I am very familiar with American Girl dollies. We have some around here, too, with my nieces' girls. They are SOOOOO expensive that it's not funny.

Loved all your photos on the post. Susan
