Hello dear friends, welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 238! Lots to share today. I want to start with a confession. I did not do well this week, as far as my quest for taking things out of my home. Nothing was taken out and a few more things were added. I was doing so well, too. It was my first big hiccup in the plan. I will show you what I purchased, but first I have to show you this wonderful gift from my Son-in-Law, Kevin. He made this amazing shelf for me to store the Grandchildren's toys. They have their own spot in the living room and in the bedroom. The bedroom was over flowing so he made this for me. It made me cry, when I read the back. That message will be there forever! I love him so much!
On my many travels this week, among the things I found, was this beautiful tea cup by Regency. It has this very interesting handle. I don't think I have seen one like this before. I have been trying not to buy tea cups any more unless they are amazing. I thought this was on the amazing side.
My next cup is a Paragon. Relax, I had this one. In fact, I totally forgot about it. (One of the reasons I do not want to buy more,) It has beautiful colors. Perfect for this time of year.
The next tea cup is the cup I am giving away! We have a winner! Kitty, from Kitty's Kozy Kitchen. Anytime I visit her blog, she has such great goodies that I get so hungry. So Kitty, send me an email with your address and I will ship your cup out this week. Congratulations!
Now for a few of my new found treasures. This vase came from a thrift store. If anyone knows who made this vase, please let me know. It is signed by hand, AAG 82. It is very old, but I do not recognize the signature. The style looks like a Tiffany. It was only $40. I never pay that much for anything. I am a "under $10" lady. Please email me if you think you know. Thank you!
A hand painted Nippon Vase was also part of the treasures I picked up. It is so stunning. I did not take good pictures of this one.
A few hand painted plates for my Laundry Room which I am going to paint a very light blue.
Starting to feel a little guilty so I will only show you one more thing, maybe two. This beautiful pink depression glass set and this Fenton Bowl. I will show you more next week. I have to behave myself. They were so cheap, I couldn't stop myself. I need prayer, I know.
Changing the subject and talking about prayer, my son is doing so much better. Praise the Lord and thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray for Terri and her son. She had a hard week. Tea Cup Tuesday is so different without her. I miss her. Thanks for not judging me!
