Aloha to you all;
I hope everyone one had a wonderful July 4th celebration! Here in Hawaii there's always several fireworks' displays throughout the island. But we love every little excuse to have family over to celebrate anything.
Okay, tomorrow is Teacup Tuesday, and I vowed to participate, so I'm posting it today. I have two cups to share, one modern island style and one from the past.
This is, obviously, my island-style tea for one. There is a licensing company here in Hawaii that have a selected variety of artists that produce beautiful useful artwork, this is one of them.This particular set was given to me by a dear friend, Elena. I love using this when I'm home alone and I want to pamper myself with a cup or two of tea. I love the leaf effect of the saucer; can you tell I love nature.
This lovely piece, I bought about 20 years ago for my mother. I was visiting one of my s-i-ls on the mainland and of course I go antique hunting. Not that I know much about antiquing, I just buy what moves me. But I saw this, with all its worn gold edges on the saucer and floral motif inside the cup, I fell in love with it and I knew my mother would love it too. My mother transitioned about a year and a half now and I was lucky to have this back. Though I don't use it, I remember her when I see it.
Thank you Terri and Martha for having Teacup Tuesday.
