Jan 5, 2015


Hi Ladies and Happy New Year!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 253! I do pray your New Year will be filled with God's Blessings for each of you.  January is the time of the year when we reflect about the previous year, maybe make some changes for the new year.  For me it is a time of closure and new beginnings.  2014 was a year that brought many changes to our family, especially my son, my prayer is that 2015 will bring healing to this home, especially to him. My hope, is to continue to get organized in my home, that my life will be easier because of it. 

I always love to have a give away in January.  It is a time to celebrate 6 years of blogging and a way of saying thank you for following this little blog.  It is hard to believe that I have been doing this that long.  I believe I have been doing this tea party with Terri for over 4 years.  The first cup I am featuring today is my January give away!  Limoges is number 2 of the top five tea cups that are collected by ladies like us.  You know Limoges is my favorite, so I wanted to give you something that was special to me.  All you have to do is be a follower and let me know if you are interested in having your name in the hat. Drawing in 2 weeks.

The very next cup I am sharing is one I have coveted for a long time.  I know that many of you own one. It is a Royal Chelsea.  I love how the gold looks like it just melted on the edges of each piece.  So I don't have to name, names, I just want to say, I sorry for coveting you tea cup.  I found this tea cup at an Estate Sale this weekend. I was jumping for joy when I saw it was under $10, I had to get it. Could not help myself.  I am trying so hard not to buy any more tea cups.  To me each cup is a piece of beautiful art.  Sure hope you forgive me, (you know who you are). 

The last cup I will be sharing is this Coalport.  It is vintage, as thin as paper and just an amazing shape. I will be taking part in a all week prayer group starting today.  If you have anything you would like me to pray for, please just email me.  I promise to keep it private, between God and I.  Sending lots of hugs your way!  Martha

Hi Martha...so glad you found a Golden Rose! Gorgeous, isn't it? Great giveaway. Thanks for hosting and have a great week!


Hey sweet Martha, thank you so much for the lovely giveaway chance. Your new teacup is gorgeous, I don't have one.
Yes, the new year always brings new things and we always want to do wonderful changes and I am one of those.
Thank you for the great tea party and here to wish you a wonderful and very blessed 2015.

Hi Martha. Oh you always have such lovely teacups each week, thank you so much for hosting!

That is a VERY generous giveaway! Thank you so much! I would love to enter, but I would rather someone whom maybe doesn't have any Limoges to win it.

I would love if you would add my sisters' health to your prayer list: Teresa and Mary Beth..esp Teresa, who is suffering and very worried.

Also for my cousin Carol who is learning to live without her love, as she is a recent widow. It's got to be so difficult, they were together for so so long.

Thank you, and thanks to your prayer warriors! HUGS!

Hello Martha, More beautiful cups for us to admire. I would love to go in the draw for the teacup but as I don't live in the U.S. I wouldn't ask you to mail it to me if I won. So good luck to everyone, I'm sure it will go to a wonderful home.
Happy New Year to everyone at your place.


Karen said...

Hi Martha,
Your teacups are lovely today! The Royal Chelsea is stunning. Since I won your giveaway last year I want someone else to be the lucky person! I will continue to pray for your son and for you too dear friend. Wow! Six years of blogging - such an accomplishment! I am just nearing only two years in April. I am so thankful that we met through blogging. Thank you for hosting tea time today! Take care of yourself. Karen

Denise said...

I just love the Royal Chelsea! I know how it is to promise oneself not to buy any more teacups--It is hard or impossible to do, especially when walking through an estate sale and great finds just happen.

Sylvia Cannon said...

Hi Martha,
I love all three of your teacups for different reasons. I did link up, but my link is not showing up. Maybe it will in a bit.
Please don't enter my name in your generous giveaway as I won the last time.
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Happy New Year, Martha! I love Limoges too and I would be thrilled to win your pretty teacup! Of course, I am a follower. The Coalport is very unique and it is a beauty. I adore the creamy white colour. All lovely teacups today. Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Ooh . . . yes, please enter me, dear Martha, I adore Limoges! What a generous giveaway.
I continue to lift up your son's health to our Lord, and pray for complete healing for him.
What a wonderful way to start the year, by taking a week to pray fervently for others and the New Year. Blessings to you as you lift up your praises and petitions.

Vickie said...

All of those teacups are beautiful! I would love to be added to your give-away. How did you know roses are one of my favorite flowers?!

Thank you for hosting these Tuesday get-togethers. I enjoy having that focus for my blog.

Lovely tea cups as usual. I have had that Royal Chelsea set though I think I may have sold it. It was a favorite for sure!

Faith Hope Cherrytea said...

Wonderful Find, Martha! and a great price - enJoy every minute and cuppa!
I luv your giveaway cup ~ I am almost sure it's a match to a dinner plate I picked up in a charity shop during my stay in AZ after my course this autumn. Obviously it's a delight! Thankyou for your generosity <3

Every BEST wish for blessings in this new year to you and yours.


Marta said...
