Hello Ladies!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 257!  Hope you have all been well.  As many of you know, I have been sick since the day after Christmas.  Maybe this week, I will finally be on the road to recovery.  I have not had much energy to do much, which is depressing for me.  Don't to hate to look at things that need to be done and not have the energy to do it?  I have not even been able to have the strength for my Grandchildren.  I have had to cancel twice.  (You know I am sick when that happens.)   Went to church to get prayed for, so healing should be coming soon.  

Thanks for bearing with me about the link last week.  I think I finally know what the problem was. After I get the linky issue fixed I am going to work on adding the parties I follow on Tuesday.  One problem at a time, is all I can deal with right now.   

I am going to be sharing more black and white tea cups this week.  I think they are perfect for February.  February?  I missed all of January, just trying to stay alive :)    This is my first cup, for this week.  It is a  black and gold Mitterteich from Bavaria, Germany.  Look at the crown shape pedestal base.  It looks like it was cut with craft scissors.

This next cup is a Clarence, Made in England.  The shape of this cup is what makes it so cute. 

I also wanted to share some of my fun collection of half dolls.  I think they were made into pin cushions.  I just love how they look as is.  

Hope you have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Hi Martha, I am so sorry you aren't feeling well and said a prayer for your healing. Your teacups are lovely as always! Have a blessed and healthy week!

Happy Groundhog Day, Martha! I hope that you feel better soon so that you can start enjoying 2015. Your unique black and white teacups are so much fun!

Oh Martha, I hope your health is restored soon! I was sick for nearly two weeks in Jan, still have a lingering cough, and I know exactly what you're talking about. I can see how those who chronically ill can become depressed. Perhaps I learned a bit of empathy from my own situation, but I am now happily starting to feel more like myself again, and I like myself much better well! I felt so do-less through much of Jan, first just relaxing in the post-Christmas organization, but then bored to tears with not wanting to do anything and not feeling like doing anything. What a conundrum!

Your teacups in B&W are beautiful!
A prayer and virtual hug for you from

Your teacups are lovely and I especially love the last one with the clover design.
Hugs and healing prayers sent to you.

I can understand it is so hard for you to be ill when you are used to being extremely busy and enjoying those grands!! I shall continue to pray for your continued regaining of strength. I do love the heart in the first picture. And the white with pink roses tea set AND the black and white tea cup with the clovers. Feel better dear friend.

Cherie said...

They are utterly beautiful and you take such lovely photographs too. I am inspired. x

My Cottage Diary said...

Hope you are feeling better, Martha! Just wanted to say that one of my childhood memories is a cake my grandmother made for my birthday that had a half-doll like yours on top of a long frosted "skirt" made of cake. I was thrilled by it! I don't know if it was her idea, or if it was the thing to do at the time (early 1950s). But if so, that might have been a use for your half-dolls, too. Many blessings to you and yours, Bess
