Hello, and thank you for visiting me for Tea Cup Tuesday, boy I don't know where the last week has gone, it has been a busy week, we got our son back to college and the weather has been so hot here, you would think that it is July. The tea cup that I am sharing this week is the last one that I purchased at the Antique Yard Sale Trail. It is a very delicate cup and I love the forget me not flowers on it. There is no name on the bottom of the cup just the number 1723, the lady that I purchased it from, thought it was made in Bavaria. I love the gold trim and the blue, pink and green on the cup. Thank you for visiting me and please click the tea cup button on my side bar and visit all the other beautiful tea cups today. Thank you Martha and Terri for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday, I have really enjoyed being a part of it. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Thank you so much for joining me for Tea Cup Tuesday. Here is another tea cup that I purchased last week. This tea cup is very different than any tea cups that I own. I believe that the flower on the tea cup is a fushia plant, which I really love and I also love is the shape of the tea cup. The bottom of the tea cup states that it is a Royal Albert, one of my favorite makers of tea cups and the name is Chaucer and the date is 1983, which is one reason I purchased it, it was the year that my first child was born. Thank you Martha and Terri for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday. You can click the button on my right sidebar and visit all the other ladies beautiful tea cups. I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Hi Everyone, thank you so much for visiting my blog for Tea Cup Tuesday. This week I am sharing with you a cup and saucer that I just purchased on Friday, it was the annual Antique Yard Sale Trail here in Michigan. My son his fiance and I left Friday morning and drove from Port Huron, MI to Harbor Beach, MI. It is along Lake Huron in the thumb of Michigan. We had a great time, but boy was it hot. I found three cup and saucers and here is one. I love the colors and the cup shape, it is different than any I own. I love the fancy trim in aqua and of course the roses, the name on it is Fascination by Royal Standard, made in England. Thank you Martha and Terri for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday and I hope you have a wonderful week.

Hi everyone, thank you for visiting me today. I had so much fun with Cassandra's Petite Bead Swap. I have already shown what I sent and received and now it's time to show you what I made with all my beautiful beads. First thing I did was to put all the beads together, they all went together beautifully and then I started creating. I wanted to make something dressy in silver and then something more casual in antique gold. So I decided to make two necklaces and two bracelets. The first necklace Karen sent me a pair of beautiful rhinestone earrings so I just had to use them and then Cari sent me the large rhinestone that I used on the bracelet. Sarah sent me the silver french bracelet piece that I used on the silver bracelet and the mother of pearl star. I love how everything turned out. I want to thank Karen, Cari and Sarah for all the wonderful beads and beautiful pieces that I had to work with and the beautiful boxes that I will treasure and thank you Cassandra for hosting this wonderful swap, I really enjoyed it. I hope you have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri
