Hello dear friends! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 236! Really hope you are all doing well. My week has still been a little on the stressful side. Doesn't seem like the older your children get, the more you seem to worry about them? My Son is still dealing with the trauma of the last fire. My daughter may have to deal with putting the family dog to sleep. (Noah will take it the hardest, as will she.) He has just not been able to get better, no matter what the Vet. tries. Sophia had her ballet recital this weekend. She did so well, standing there holding her grass skirt. She was by far the best "stand there and don't move" dancer I have ever seen. The whole family came out for her 2 minute stand. We were so proud! We all went to lunch and had ice cream to celebrate. The cousins went to a drive-in movie later that night to continue the celebrations! Did your family ever put you in the trunk of a car, to go to the drive-in? We did it all the time when I was young.
Well, I promised a give-away this week, just to celebrate our longevity. It is a numbered Bavarian tea cup. It is part Lusterware, with beautiful roses. I do hope you like it. I don't think the picture does it justice. All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment here. Extra chances if you follow Pretty Vintage Things on Facebook. Just let me know. I will have Sophia drawn on Sept 9th. That gives you two weeks to play!
As you know, I am still on a quest to "not" be featured on Hoarders. I have continued to clean things out, this time it is in my kitchen. I just started there and have already made my first trip to the thrift store. (Three bags filled with pots and pans, thank you very much!) However, as luck would have it, I did find a couple of tea cups while I just dropped things off. (Really, I wasn't looking, well maybe a little!) This first tea cup is one of those cups I found on my last "drop-off" trip. (Remember, 3 bags full of things I gave a way.) This tea cup does not have a signature. It is wafer thin, in wonderful pastel pink and blue colors. How could I resist? Really?
This next cup is also from that same trip. It is amazing looking. The signature reads "Sorelle." Hand painted. It has such vivid colors. I couldn't help it. Your right, I need prayer.
Have a wonderful week. Please remember Terri and her son in your prayers, as well as our family. It seems like each one is going through something hard, that only Jesus can fix. Thank you for your faithfulness.
