Lucy, you have some explaining to do!"  Isn't that the truth?  So sorry about the last couple of weeks. Do you remember my telling you about my picture problems? Well, my computer only got worst!  I took the computer to the Apple Store,  who said I have to back it all up before they could do anything.  My son, typical guy, said he would do it for me.  It was on his time of course.  It finally got done and my beloved son said, "I can fix it now."   It still not completely working right, but I can finally get some pictures again,  just very slowly.  Anyway, welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 288!

I want to thank you for the emails, checking on me.  It is so nice to know you were missed.  My son in law is finally out of the hospital and is improving slowly thank God.  My sweet son is still dealing with PTSD issues but a lot better than he has been.

I bet you think I forgot about the Johnson Brothers trio give away.  I did not forget and the winner is . . . Fabby of Fabby's Living.  Not sure how long she has been a follower of this blog, but I do know it has been a very long time.  She is an amazing woman and always sets a beautiful table.  Fabby, please email me your address and I will ship this trio to you. 

I am sharing three cups this week, because of the problems I have  there will not be a lot of pictures.  The first is this lovely Shelley.  Love the fall colors on this great cup.  For some reason, it does not look like  a Shelly to me.

The next are these two demitasse cups perfect for Fall.  They are both made in Japan. Well, I better not push it or I might not have a
post again.  Have a wonderful week.  

Love you all, Martha

Hi Martha. Glad you computer seems to be behaving again! What a apain! The Shelley is a pattern called Heather, and the shape is called Cambridge. Actually one of their most popular shapes in the 1950s and 1960s, but since the 1990s Dainty has been the most popular. Tastes change...Love your fox! Nice to have you back, thanks for hosting and for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
