TEA CUPS AND A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS




Hi Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 243!  Hope you had a wonderful week.  My week has had it's ups and downs but for the most part it was good.  Sophia started Pre-school and we were all not sure how it was going to go, but she loved it!  Not one single tear was shed, except maybe by Mom. She was saying good-bye in the parking lot!  I must say, no one in our family has ever had a child that did that! This is a picture of her first day at Pre-school. 

I have been trying so hard to get things organized and trying to give away some of this extra stuff.  I gave my daughter a huge bag of items to decorate her home for Halloween.  I still have too much.  Then, there was that little incident of last week's sale.  Since there were items purchased for various seasons, thing got just a little complicated. Today, I am sharing some of the fun items I purchased.  (You thought I would forget, didn't you?) Well, all the pictures you will see today are part of that huge sale.


The tea cups I am sharing today are also, part of that bounty.  The first cup is Bavarian.  Love the beautiful roses on this cup.  It cost me $1, how could I not get it? 



Cup number two is a Paragon.  I love the blues and the yellows in this cup. Who can resist a Paragon for $2?



This next cup I think is German.  I am not sure why I am so attracted to this style cup.  It is chunky and so perfect and only $1!



This next item is a Pumpkin Carriage.  The tree inside was also part of this sale.  The tree is really for Valentine's Day, but I thought it looks so cute in the Carriage, so the hearts are hidden for now.  


I also picked up a few birds.  Did I ever tell you I collect birds?  It's a problem, I know.    





This is just a sample of what I picked up at that sale.  Pray for me,  I could not help it.  Everything was so cute. I will show you more next week.  The items were not  as cute as my grandchildren.





Please continue to pray for Terri and her son, as well as my son.  Thank you so much for joining the party this week.  It is always a blessing.  MARTHA

I missed last Tea Cup Tuesday, and apparently the news about a great sale. Your tea cups are fabulous. Now I have to go see what happened last week!

Jill said...

Oh, Martha, no need to feel guilty buying those wonderful teacups at bargain prices. I love the blue Paragon. My favorite shape. The pink one is not normally my style either, but I would not have been able to resist as it is gorgeously pink. Thank you for sharing your lovely finds.

Winnie said...

What amazing finds!! I haven't ever been that fortunate to find treasures for that price! Love the shapes and how different they are. Your grands are precious!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Oh, that little belly on Sophia in the first picture is adorable!!
I'm continually amazed at the wonderful deals my blogger friends get on gorgeous teacups! Martha, no, you could not help picking up those cups for that price. I esp. like the ornate pink and gold one. Seems like something Marie Antoinette would have used!
You always make me smile! xo Deborah

Hi Matha,
your purchase is gorgeous and a steel of a deal. Really wonderful. And so are your grandkids. They look always happy. What a fun to have such children. I wish them all the best, as I do for your son and for Terri and her son. If yu talk to her, send her best greetings, from me, too. Thank you for sharing your treasures and for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Oh Martha! Sophia! Imagine not shedding a single tear for pre-school. That girl is a wonder. And adorable, too.

Your other grands are darling, too. Just darling.

Martha, I would DEFINITELY have purchased that gorgeous first vase and the cups---oh, most beautiful. You deserved them! Susan

Lovely tea cups - almost as lovely as your grandchildren - but not quite!!! Thank you for hosting. Prayers and best wishes to you, your son, Terri and her family.
