Hi Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 295!  Hope your week as been wonderful, mine has had it's ups and downs.  Can you believe this is the last week of January?  Is it because I am older that time seems to just run out so quickly?  I am a "baby boomer" and it does not help that a lot of people that shaped my adolescence have died recently.  In some cases younger than me.  Makes me think about a lot of things.  For instance, do we ever finish our work as a Mother?  I wonder, do we want to? 

This will be the last week to share black and white tea cups, I always have more cups than time.  We have to start thinking about Valentine's Day.  I want to start with this Bavarian cup from Germany.  I believe I have always favored this cup because of the crown pedestal.  It is the only cup I have ever 
seen like it.  The rich black, white and gold leafing makes it that much more special.

The next cup is a Clarence from England.  Love the shamrock decor with the gold leafing on this cup. 

I sure hope you have been safe with this awful weather we have been having.  Los Angeles has been cool and sunny, typical winter for us.  My grandchildren are enjoying a day at Knott's Berry Farm.  They are always ready for fun.  Take care of yourself, please continue praying for my son.  Improvement is so slow.  I admit it has been hard on me. I think I am coming to the realization that I am his care giver and that makes me so sad for him.  All any of us can do is trust God with those we love so much.

Thank you for joining the party.  Please feel free to sharing something about tea or anything that just puts a smile on your face, both are good.   Looking forward to visiting. Hugs, Martha

HI Martha,
Both of your black and white teacups are so pretty and so and unique. I've never seen any like them.
You and your son are still in my prayers. My one son is still here with me, also. Mothering is a lifelong journey, isn't it?
Thanks for hosting, Martha, and may you have a good week with your grandkids. They sure add joy, don't they?

Hello Dear Martha,

I pray that God will give you the strength you need to care for your son while he needs you most. Your teacups are divine today! Love, love, love the black. I will email you soon my Dear Friend! Take care of yourself. Karen

Hi Martha, your black pedestal German tea cup is soooo unique. I've never seen one like that either!

So sorry about your son and your realization - that's awful and I am sad to learn it. Hugs.

Your grandchildren are adorable, even when screaming, haha.

God bless. Hugs. ♥
