TeaCup Tues

The hydrangea are hanging heavy on their limbs. Time to bring some in to dry and keep some color in the room for the winter. I thought I would show a few of my pitchers this week along with my featured teacup. You can see I also have quite a collection of very old doilies. The doilies and pitchers, other than the large one holding the hydrangea, are from hubby's grandmother's house. 5 generations of the West's were born and lived their whole lives there. So many treasures. I wish they each would tell their story.

Here shows a portion of the old silver. This napkin ring has an elegant W for the West name. These collections sit upon a 1930's bureau. My hubby's grandparents wedding gift to each other.

This is my second teacup Tues. I have Martha to thank for inspiring me to go through the collections I have put away for safe keeping.

I have displayed this pretty teacup from Japan in my living room with the hydrangeas and my father's pocketwatch. I found the watch yesterday...I will treasure it always.

Sharing another Golden Rule I'm trying to instill on my children:

"Eat what has been given to you because you are truly blessed."

Thanks for visiting my blog. You have so many wonderful things.I love pitchers and doilys.

To have things passed down from Family members are a blessing. I was not that lucky, but I am doing it for my Grandchildren.

Thank you for visiting me for the tea parties yesterday...and for your lovely comment. I'm thrilled to meet you and to return the visit.

I LOVE all your vintage treasures!! Especially that silver. I am in a love affair with silver these days.

I agree about wishing all our memorobilia could tell their stories. Oh, the joys, tears, and trials they have undoubtedly seen.

Blessings to you,
Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)
