Feb 1, 2016


Hello dear friends and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No 296!  I must admit before I get any further with this post, I have not completed my Valentine Decorations for 2016.  I am going to use some of my previous year's pictures.  I just running late, but by next week it should be all up.  I have taken the January decorations off. 

Have you noticed what Google did?  Some of your followers will be removed if you follow them in different ways.  When I first noticed it I thought some of you had just abandoned ship. I turned 64 recently and the song by the Beatles came to mind: Will you still need me, when I am 64?  What a great relief when I found that I was not abandon, because of the year I have had.  Hope you have had a good week.  My has been real good.  My son is getting better everyday, I am just so thankful to God for that.  I feel like some of my old life is coming back.  I made a costume for my Princess Maya, she wanted to be a Greek Goddess.  What do you think?  I hope she likes it. 

The cups I am sharing this week are both Lefton.  I really love some of their hand painted cups.  This first one has insides completely painted with large roses and the outside is gold leaf.  It is an amazing piece.  It is one of those rare cups  I only decorate with, I don't want to risk breaking this one.

The second cup is a pedestal, pink Lefton also hand painted. Just beautiful,  don't you think?

Have a wonderful week.  
Please feel free to post anything you would like to share, especially if it has tea cups.  Blessings,  Martha

Loveliness and never a problem sharing old pics - I did it too - pretty is always nice to see. Quit feeling so guilty, you are a dear and much too hard on yourself.

Thank you for the party, and blessings to you and yours, sweet friend. ♥

Dear Martha:
What a beautiful dress and so meaningful. I am not at home in Co but rather in a moving process so I am responding to you at the grocery store coffee shop. We closed on our retirement home last Friday in Missouri. Hope you are well. Your teacups are lovely as always!
