TEA CUPS AND GOOD THOUGHTS!


Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 239!  Hope your week was good.  As for mine, I spent the week worrying about everything. In fact, if you would have sent me an email, I would have worried for you and saved you some time. I worried about my children, grandchildren, husband, sisters, the weather, the world news, my grass, you name it and it was covered this week from every angle.   I can't stand that about myself. I think I have gotten better as the years have passed, but really Martha?  I even worried about a Bible Study on Daniel I am doing right now, really? Sometimes, I wonder how God can put up with me.  I know He does, because of His Grace, but really?  When will I learn?  Everything turned out fine.  Doesn't it always?  God is good to me. Thank you ladies for coming back each week. I know I am a piece of work, but you are good to me too!






Well, one good thing that happen this week was, I stayed home.  Because of that, no new things came home.  Nothing went out either.  It was a draw.  I also have a very clean house, however, I was not in the mood for any company.  Doesn't that figure?  I think I have had a rough few weeks, I need to just get pass it.  Most of my Fall decor is up, so that was good.  


So today, no new cups, you are going to see oldies but goodies. Starting with this Limoges tea cup.  It is not the normal Limoges with all the detail, very simple,  but lovely just the same. 



The next cup is this hand painted Angel Square Cup by Lois White.  It was a gift years ago, when I  worked as  a school principal.  It has the cute little spoon to match.  




The last cup, is one I do not recognize the signature.  However, if you notice this hand painted cup's design goes all the way around the cup.  It is very lovely.  




My Princess Maya recently earned her Bronze Award, while Noah and Sophia were happy just wearing their crowns. 



Hope you have a wonderful week.  Terri had a very good week and looks like she is improving slowly, praise the Lord!  Please continue to pray for Terri and me.  There is a scripture that reads: Martha, Martha you are anxious and worried about so many things...
The next part of that scripture reads:  Mary has chosen the right thing. . .  Luke 10:41.
Want to know something funny?  My middle name is Mary!  Go figure!

Sending Hugs your way!
Martha

Martha, you are too hard on yourself. I loved the hand painted set you showed.

kitty said...

Martha, I'm a worrier,too, but you make me laugh! I guess we're all a piece of work and we're lucky that God loves us just as we are! Your teacups are so pretty and I especially love your angel one that was gifted to you. Thanks for hosting and may you have a worry-free week!

Jill said...

Sometimes when we stay home, it can be surprising what one can get done. I enjoyed seeing your oldies but goodies. All are pretty. The square angel cup set took my breathe away.

Mom Wald said...

Turning worry into prayer is what we are supposed to do. The hard part is then trusting that He will do what is best. Being human is hard enough without being hard on yourself! Virtual Hugs!

Oh, Martha, you always bring a smile! Sometimes it is difficult not to be a worrier but that is when we must trust God to work it all out. I love your Limoges teacup and the angel set. Such pretties! Thanks for your visit and have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Martha, I love the angel cup and the beautiful plate in the third photo. I tend to worry, too. I know better - He says to cast our cares on Him - but we are human. Take care, and hugs to you dear lady, Beth

Hi Martha, Thanks for having another lovely party for us this week....hugs, Penny

Hello Martha
Now you're taking, oldies but goodies - I recycle my teacups often because I don't have a large collection.
The worry never goes away for caring about family, that's what makes us the motherly people we are.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday, may I ask that you include a mosaic another time for the theme of this party please?

Ruth Weston said...

Worry is our natural condition, isn't it? Good thing there is Phil 4:6-7...a favorite scripture of mine. Love your teacups...new or not and the family is growing fast! Thanks for hosting and have a brighter wee in Him!

Martha, thank you so much for stopping by my blog yesterday. It was wonderful to hear from you. I have missed you.

Your grands are absolutely beautiful! How blessed you are to have them and to have them living so close to you. I cannot believe Sophia is that big already! Seems like she was just born last year!

I, too, have been struggling with worry lately. That is nothing new for me---I've been a worrier all my life. My middle name is Ann, but it might as well be Anxiety.

Wishing you blessings this lovely Tuesday.

Love,
Patti

Millie said...

Delightful pics of lovely cups and saucers today. Love that square cup!

Karen said...

Hi Martha,
I am so glad that you stayed home and avoided treasure hunting. Lol! I am trying to visit the thrift stores less but my worrying stops when I am focused on looking for pretty things. Yes, I am a worry wart too! That's what my mother used to call herself when she worried. It is nice to rest at home too and your teacups today are definitely oldies but goodies! I didn't realize that you were a school principal. How I would have loved to work with you in a school. You would have loved all of the children, I'm sure. The wee ones need so much nurturing and you would have been perfect! I hope that next week your worrying subsides. You always make me smile Martha! We are a lot alike with our worrying and teacup addiction. Blessings to you my dear friend! Thank you for hosting tea today!

Beautiful china and even more beautiful grandchildren- they sure give you lots to be proud of, Martha! Thank you for hosting! Hugs!

Carrie said...

Hi Martha! You choose such lovely cups to share today--especially the hand painted one. You had me chuckling at "grass." I'm a big worrier too, and you have way more people to worry about than I do! We are coming up on a whole new season and maybe the changes (including to your décor) will help give a new perspective. Have a great night, and I hope this week is more peaceful for you :)

Bernideen said...

Martha:
I always admire all your cups and saucers but if someone actually painted those cherubs - that is amazing! I recognize the cup and saucer shape as one from Maryland China Company. Thanks for linking!

Stephanie said...

Hello dear Martha! Your tea cups are simply lovely! Wishing you a beautiful day!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Martha, I'd love to give you a big hug right now. You are such a dear! I love that you are so honest. I have to keep telling myself that the Lord has it covered, whatever it is.
Love that cherub teacup, so unique and pretty!

Somehow it all works out. I don't know how but it does!

We do have to guard our minds. I had a rough day Monday - practically lost the whole day - I wasn't feeling well and had a few things niggling my mind. I think we all have those days and isn't it wonderful to have the grace of God to turn to!? It is kind of like coming out of a really bad headache isn't it - I hope this finds all well for you today - thank you for hosting and sharing,
Kathy

Susan said...

My dear Martha....Love the grandkid photos! Cannot believe how they are growing up!

I know how easy it is to slip into worry mode. But, as you know, our Lord said, "Do not be anxious about anything." Wow, how hard it is to follow that advice!

Hope this week is being good for you and that you are peaceful and happy!

I had no idea you were a school principal once! That is one tough job! Hugs to you. Susan

bj said...

Oh, dear, sister friend, some days I might as well go back to bed for all the worrying I'm doing. Don't know why some days are worse than others. All it takes for me to get on a worry binge is just one little negative thought.....sometimes I can stop it in it's tracks..other times, I spend half the day on my knees.

eileeninmd said...

Your post is lovely. The tea cups are so pretty. I your little Maya is a sweetie! Take care and have a happy weekend!

Jacoba said...

Once again such beautiful teacups and things on display. Gorgeous grandchildren! Comes rain comes shine, Martha, don't worry.

Diane at My Cottage Garden said...

You have lovely things. Thanks for visiting my blog.

the woolly dog said...

A cup of tea in the Limoges tea cup would be lovely please. I think worrying must be a natural state for humans, even though we know it will have no influence on the outcome, personally I think it's all planned ahead and we just have to think it will work out whatever the outcome. Take care. x

Wilma said...
