Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 248! This is the last Tea Cup Tuesday of November.  Our year is truly gone by so quickly.  So much has happen to us this year and it is not over yet.  Many of us are getting ready for Thanksgiving this week, with grown children coming home and our houses filled.  Our family will be celebrating starting Wednesday and on through the weekend.  I know I am ready for turkey!

I have begun to set the table for my family.  We will have our first Thanksgiving celebration on Wednesday because we wanted everyone to be able to share in at least one turkey dinner without work interfering.  It always seems like we have so much to do during this season and so little time to do it.  It is so important to be with family when at all possible.  Some of my family I have not seen years because of distance. 

This week I am sharing two cups.  The first is this Bavarian tea cup that I have had for a very long time.  The necklace in the cup reminds me of all the "jewels" in our family.  

The last one is an Aynsley.  I am sure you figured that one out right away.  A stunning piece of china!

As we pause this week to give thanks for so much, our Nation, our families and our friends.  Let us not forget to give thanks to the  Holy One who has given us all these blessings.  Regardless of what we have been going through, we know that He is faithful!  Please continue to pray for our dear friend Terri and her son, who are struggling this week.  I would also appreciate your continued prayers for my son.  He is improving everyday.  As you can see, Noah and Sophia are eager for Christmas to come!

Please know how thankful I am of you and our friendship.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Hugs, Martha

First presented to the American people in 1951, polyester was advertised as a "miracle" material that you could wear for 68 days straight and still look good. While you probably wouldn't want to test the claim, you can't deny that polyester is durable and wears well. Its synthetic fibers also resist absorbing stains as easily as natural fibers.

When Emmett Till rode the IC Railroad south from Chicago in the late summer of 1955, Money was a more going idea. It was said to have a population of about 200, but gun shirts that must family t shirts have included all those who lived in the shotgun cabins out urban t shirts in the cotton fields. You can still find Money on the list of towns on the official highway map of Mississippi but there's no population provided.
