Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 242! Our weather is finally cooling down a little bit. It is hard to think about Fall when we are still 90 degrees in Los Angeles. We are rationing water so the yards are barely staying alive. My week was very busy, but I did managed to squeeze in two very fun things. First, I was at a Scrapbook Convention (yes they have their own convention's) and secondly, I went to the best estate sale ever, by accident. Love it when that happens. The lady that lived there owned a local boutique. All her items were very cute and on the French Country side. I have a CRV and the back was almost full. The most I paid for anything was $5.00, $1.00 or $2.00 was the average price. Tell me, how could I pass that up? Impossible, right? So, I guess, I have backslided a little from "my less is best idea." I couldn't help it, really. My weeks have been so stressful for so long. I caved, it's true, I was weak. I couldn't help it. Thought I might have felt regret, when I got home, but I didn't. Have mercy! I will try to show you some of the loot next week. Still have not finished unpacking.
I am sharing two cups this week. The first one is this cute little girl cup that was made in Germany. I love how she is surrounded by red flowers.
My next cup is a Rosenthal Elfenbein tea cup. Pattern name Konfetti. It is so cute, looks like it is right out of the 1950's.
Also sharing some pictures of my Halloween porch. It is not scary because of Sophia, but it does the trick. The children love it. Noah is still changing who he wants to be for Halloween. Now, he wants me to make him Dracula. He wants fangs with blood. He is pretty "chicken little" so it can't be scary. That is my next job.
Please continue to pray for my son and well as Terri and her son. I can't wait until she comes back to join us. Have a wonderful week.
Sending hugs your way! Martha
