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

Hi Martha..you are ahead of me for Mother's Day...just beginning to plan! Your teacups are lovely as usual. I have only one smallish china cabinet, and it is always hard deciding to keep what stays or not...and my daughter/dial are like yours...want it all or nothing! Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week!

Hi Martha! I'm sorry you've have sciatica pain. I know from my one son how terrible it is.
Your Sadler teapot is so pretty (sigh!). I just love it, and all your pretty teacups. Maybe your granddaughters will want them someday? I hope that somebody will want mine, too. Thanks for hosting and Happy Mother's Day to you!

So glad you are feeling better. Yes, days of celebration seem to come more close every year. Your teacups are lovely. You are blessed you have your mother and I am sure you will come up with the perfect gift. Love your pics……...

Hi Martha,
I am so sorry about your sciatic pain. Please don't think about parting with your teacups yet. Enjoy your pretties Dear Martha. You are still young and have plenty of good years left. Oh my that Sadler teapot is a beauty. Love the pink and flowers in it and all of the pinkish teacups. Hope you feel better every day. Blessings, Karen.

Sandra said...

I would be like your daughter that would want to keep things just because they are a special memory. Your tea cup collections would be such a treasure for any family members. Wishing you a Happy Mothers Day and hope you are feeling well with little or no pain.

I hope you are better soon from the sciatica, it's so painful!
Your Sadler teacup is darling. you have the best ones!
Yes, my mother is the same, I don't know what to get her, ever! She's got lots of sweaters, blouses, earrings and dishes, which she says she doesn't have a place to store it... there she's right about all of us too, lol..
Hope you have a better week.

Such beautiful pictures! In the first picture, are those lids for vanity jars? I was given a box full from a friend and I think they are just gorgeous. I don't know what to do with them. Yours look pretty displayed, whatever they may be! My youngest daughter is the same as yours....she wants all my stuff and my oldest couldn't care about any of it!

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

Hi Martha, sorry you have been experiencing pain lately. Your collections are always so beautiful. Thanks so much for hosting and have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Margie said...

Love the teacup with the cute little feet! Hope your sciatica improves so that you can enjoy Mother's Day weekend. Thanks for hosting and Happy Mother's Day, Martha!

Susan said...

Hello Dear Martha....How happy I was to hear from you. So sorry you haven't been feeling well. I know what you mean about collections but it's so hard to break them up, isn't it? Take care, dear Martha. Susan

Nora @ Teacup Tales said...

Such lovely pink teacups and the Sadler teapot is a beauty too! Collections are meant to be enjoyed and used. Recently I've been gifted with "unwanted" teacups from others. I can't imagine giving them to Goodwill as mine hold so many memories so I'm glad they thought of me.. Guess not everyone feels the same way about teacups.
Enjoy your Mother's Day and best wishes for good health this weekend!

Beth @ Conversations from my House said...

Lovely post today with so many pretties! I understand about time to "thin out" Not only my teacups but several other things as well. I am presently working on thinning out my fabrics by using them up.

Tea in Texas said...

Martha, Your Sadler pink teapot is adorable with the flowers? I also love the Lefton cup in saucer in the hand painted pink.Hope your Mother's Day was fabulous!

Take care!
Pam

Thank you for the party.
Have a very blessed week.
