CELEBRATING MOTHER'S DAY!
Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 305! Hope you have all been safe. The weather has not been too kind to many of you. It kind of puts things into perceptive, when you see so many people suffering from floods and winds. Los Angeles has been the same, sunny and beautiful. Sorry about last week, I have been having trouble with my sciatica and sitting has been a problem. I am somewhat better today.
Can't believe we are about to celebrate Mother's Day this week. I have to get my act in order. Adore my mother but she is so very hard to shop for. She never needs or wants anything. Do you think we will all get to that point in our lives, I hope so? This teapot is an old Sadler.
This first cup is not vintage, but was purchased at a tea house in Pasadena, CA. I loved the little feet on this one. It was made in England.
This last cup is a handprinted Lefton. They are always so pretty and this one was a gift from my best friend's mom. I have been thinking a lot about what I am going to do with all these cups, what a chore for my children. I must own at least 2 or 3 hundred. "Huston we have a problem." I keep thinning out, but it seems never ending.
My youngest daughter will want to keep them all just because "they were Mom's." My oldest simply says " Put a price on everything Mom!"
I have to work this out. Have you even started to think about your collections? I will be 65 this year, it has been on my mind a lot, so have the calls from Social Security for that matter. Maybe that is why, Social Security does not let me forget my age.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day! You deserve to be good to yourself. Thank you for visiting, I look forward to looking at all the "pretties" you will post this week. Hugs, Martha
Have a wonderful week. ladies. Here are some of the parties I will be joining late!
