Hello ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 309!  Hope you have all been well and that the weather has treated you alright.  We have been having beautiful days here.  I am in the middle of doing some major yard work.  We have a very old and very large Sycamore tree that has died.  My son is going to cut it down tomorrow.  I am so sad to see it go.  The back yard is going to look so different without it. 

Today I am sharing an Aynsley Tea Cup, perfect for the summer holidays

During June and July I decorate the house in Red, White and Blue colors.  It is perfect for the summer.

Please feel free to join the party.  I love to visit and catch up.  Last week, because of Memorial Day, I forgot to post.  "The old grey mare, she ain't what she use to be."  Here is a list of the parties I will be joining this week.   Hugs,  Martha

Teatime Tuesday - Tuesday Cuppa Tea - Friends Sharing Tea - Share Your Cup Thursday - Inspire Me Monday- No Place Like Home - Share Your Cup Thursday at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olsen - The Charm of a Home - Tea in Texas - Thelma's Days - Bella's Rosas Antiques - Friends Sharing Tea at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog

Hugs, Martha

Hi Martha! You made me laugh with the song...the old gray mare!
Your teacup is a beauty and so is all your decor for June and July. It's sad to have a tree cut down. It's kind of like they're part of the family and it's hard to part with them. Maybe you can replace it with something else? Thank you for hosting and for making me smile!

What a pretty teacup, Martha. It's sad to see a tree cut down but when they die, we don't have much choice. Maybe plant another in its place? Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful week.

I agree; it's hard to lose a special tree and especially one that's a big part of your yard.
I'm impressed you have already decorated for the next two months. I really like the idea of sticking to red, white and blue.
Your Aynsley is such a rich royal blue. Hard to find that color on teacups.
Have a wonderful week.

Hi Martha,
I love your vintage Aynsley teacup and the colours are perfect for the summer holidays. It really feels like summer here on the west coast. Thank you for hosting Tuesday Tea Times. Blessings, Karen

Hi! Never have dealt with a dead sycamore tree just live ones. They are beautiful. The leaves were what got me after they fell off the tree. We'd have so many leaves to rake.

Lovely tea cup.

Your home is so red/white/blue festive. Love it.
Blessings to you,

Oh just ask my husband how I moan, wail and weep when trees have to be cut down. It is SO sad.

Then there's my neighbor who had the biggest healthiest tree in the front yard and a new neighbor told them it hides their house too much so they cut it down - that was 3 years ago and their front yard is STILL just dirt - they never put sod down or anything and every year they say they will fix their yard - but now it is bright and not shady and not private - what fools. I was so upset I couldn't even discuss it with them.

I am sorry about your loss.

Love your pics - thank you for the party! Hugs! ♥

To come here always means to find so much ancient charm, blessed be, my darling Martha !

I'm so sorry to read of your Sycamore tree, but I have to admit that I'm overjoyed, on the other hand, by being hosted at your so lovely vintage party ...

Hope your week is off to a good start I wish you much love for your days to come, with sincere thankfulness

That is a beautiful teacup Martha! Thanks for hosting!

Margie said...

Lovely teacup, Martha. I've always been a fan of the Aynsley designs.

I'm sorry to hear about your dead Sycamore tree. The Emerald Ash Borer (an invasive pest beetle) has killed millions of ash trees here.

Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week!

Love the teacups! A wonderful idea to decorate in red/ white /blue!

Patti said...

I'm so sorry about your tree, Martha. It's so sad when a large, beautiful tree is cut down. I once saw an article that likened trees to friends, and I must say, that is how I feel about trees.

Anyhow, beautiful teacups, as always.


P.S. Check out my new blog, Embracing Home, if you have a chance. I'm loving being back in blog world.

Dear Martha:
This week is crazy as we had company so I am late arriving to say thanks for sharing and linking to my BTTCG Blog Party. I love your Victorian ladies picture and you saw I have some of these. Your post is very pretty as always and I always enjoy your collections and jewelry accents!

Bernideen said...
