Hello Ladies!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 276!  Hoping you all had a wonderful Father's Day! My Dad has gone home to be with the Lord, so many years ago. However, I can still remember his wonderful smile and how he always smelled like a cake.  He was a baker, the bread smell was always a part of our home.   Some days I miss him so much!

We celebrated at the Cook Home this week.  My husband is bless to still have his father alive and doing very well.  I took a picture of my son, my husband and my Father-in-Law with this new lens my son purchase for a trip he is taking.  Everyone was suppose to make a funny face.  Not everyone got the memo as you can see.  It was a very fun day, Grandpa is in his  late 80's and is still going strong. 

I am sharing only two cups this week.  They are both "Father" cups.  The pink is so very Victorian and is most likely a coffee mug.  

The gold cup is a Mustache Cup, always a favorite of mine.  They are both quite old, but have survived very well.  

I want to share some very good news.  I hear from Terri.  She and her son have begun to make some improvement.  It was so wonderful to hear from her. Please continue to keep her in your prayers, they are not out of the woods yet. We are however, grateful for any improvement, not matter how small.

As I have shared, my Grandchildren will be with me most of the summer. This was Noah's first baseball game, and Sophia is having tea with friends.  The last is a pictures of Maya and Sophia making a strawberry pizza. 
 I am  so excited to spend extra time with them.  They grow so fast.  Isn't weird that we never feel any older, except when a part of the body is not working as it should?  Which happens to me a lot. 

Here are a few parties I will be joining. I don't think Sandi is partying this week.  Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha, I've never seen such nice mugs for fathers before. I'm used to seeing the plain old square like heavy mugs. Yours are certainly treasures. So cute to see Sophia having a tea party. Your post is very timely as I'm missing my dad today as well. Very touching you included a photo of your dad. Blessings for a good week.

I loved seeing all the pics of everyone, Martha. My dear Dad and my beloved are both gone from my life, but they live on through my four children. Thank you for hosting your lovely party, and have fun with those grands. I'm here in Florida with two of my seven grands, staying at a beach house. Fun!

Martha, Your family looks so happy and so loved too! The tea party with all the little friends on the kitchen floor is just so special. It reminds me of times with my children long ago. I'm missing my dad too. Your cups are so wonderful--I don't often see old cups with "father" on them. Linda

Hello Dear Martha....Your grandkids are growing up before our very eyes. Just yesterday Noah was a little baby and Sophia was just born! Oh my. How time flies. I can hardly believe it. My daughter just found out she's having TWINS. Can you imagine? God is so good. Have a beautiful weekend! Susan
