HONORING OUR ARMED FORCES AND SHARING TEA



TO THOSE WHO SERVE, THANK YOU!


Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 272!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I have been putting up my "Red, White & Blue" as well as spending time with my children.  Having lots of fun with my yard.  We have had a cloudy last couple of weeks so that makes the yard work even more wonderful. My SIL has been very ill so it is hard to celebrate when someone you love is so sick. Chemo is so hard.  We have family members and dear friends who served or are serving in the Armed Forces and I honor them today. 



I will be sharing blue cups this week.  I don't have a lot of blue maybe a dozen or so, but each one is beautiful.  I am starting with this Coalport.  Love the handle of this beauty.



The next cup is the demitasse size of the same pattern.  I would love to have a complete dinner set of this.





My last cup is a hand blown and hand painted demitasse from Italy.   Love the dark blue color.  



I am also sharing some the changes in the decor I have begun to make.  




Thank you so much for following this party.  I appreciate every one of you.  Looking forward to seeing what you have been up to this week.  Hugs, Martha

Happy Memorial Day, Martha! Your blue teacups are stunning and I always enjoy seeing your jewelry. I am so sorry about your sister-in-law. Chemo really is hard, I know. God bless her! Always nice to see your little ones. Have a wonderful day.

You sure do know how to celebrate, Martha- everything looks so red, white and blue perfect!

Your grandbabes are the most wonderful, though - so nice you are so close to them. I love that. I never knew my grandmothers, both passed long before I was born....and I am not yet a grandmother. Hoping to be though, our youngest gets married in August!!
