Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 261! Hope you are all well and ready for another week.  My week has been very stressful.  I have been waiting on results for myself, (Do I have a supper bug?), my sister-in-law is about to be staged for Cancer and my Mother has a spot on her liver we are waiting to hear about! God promises never to give us more than we can bear.  So, here I sit, trusting God for the women in my life.  There is such a "alone" feeling in waiting.  Don't you think?

I will be sharing green tea cups today.  I am trying to keep my self busy, while God has me on a "holding" pattern. This first cup is a Paragon.  It is more mint green than the picture reflect. Paragon cups are always amazing.  

Cup number 2 is a Regency.  Love the shape of the cup.  It is a very pale green.

The last cup is a green depression glass.  You will notice the portrait pin with this cup.  It is a recent find.  I love it. It looks so delicate to me.  It is very old. It is enameled and cost me $10. 

My home has begun to change with the colors of green, in hopes that Spring will come quickly for our Nation.  So many people are covered in snow.  We have had a little bit of rain here, which is nice for us.  On the top picture you will notice I added more plates to the wall.  Love the look!

Here are pictures of Noah with his Dad and Sophia with Uncle!  We are gathering to watch Sophia do here Ballet Recital today.  Life just goes on!  Thank you for joining my party.  As you have notice, I am trying to post earlier for you.  I appreciate each and every one of you wonderful, gifted ladies.   Sending hugs your way!  Martha

Dearest Martha, I am keeping you and yours in my prayers. Leaving your frights and concerns at the feet of Jesus will get you through anything.

Love your new pin and those green teacups. I actually gasped at the Paragon one, oh my word it is STUNNING.

God bless, thanks for hosting. Hugs.
