Twyla on Tuesday

Hello ladies!
You know I love sharing my collections with you. 
I love old prints in antique frames.
This little girl is one of my favorites.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned my cup collection.  I like to play with them and
arrange them in different vignettes.  All these cups are from the late 1800's and early
1900's, made in Germany.  They are so beautiful and a thrill to find one.

This is a really large one!  A perfect place to gather some of my favorite vintage sewing items
and old handmade lace.

I so appreciate you coming to spend some time with me today.
It's been a long month for us.  First, my dad had surgery and a week ago my husband's
back went out.  It is keeping me preoccupied and I really miss visiting you all as much as I like.

Hopefully, things will get back to normal soon and I can spend as much time in blogland as I like.
I found this cute planter in an antique booth a couple of weeks ago. 
Who could resist the sweet little doggie faces?

Wishing you all much happiness!

Good Morning Twyla & Lindsey,

I love your cup collection, as I used to collect them, too. I had a Persian mother-in-law in my first marriage, who would not drink her tea out of anything except "fine china." Well, I started collecting them, but didn't want her using them, as she was prone to slippage, and broke a lot of glass items in my house. We went to "Dillards" and had her pick out her very own cup (at a heafty cost of $50), but at least it was hers and could take her abuse. She passed about 9 years ago, and I turned her cup into a memorial under glass for her daughters. She may have broken many of my dishes, but that one is still around, a testiment to her.

I sincerely hope your dad and your husband are well on their way to full recovery - and I always just LOVE sneaking a peek at your lovely collections!
Thanks for making the time to share with us today. Love, Heidi

Twyla, I thought you had been very quiet lately. I am glad to hear your loved ones are on the mend. When I visited the antique mall yesterday, I saw so many things that made me think of you. My eye is now drawn to beautiful Victorian postcards and images because of your wonderful collections. Now I must add cups to the list! Thank you so much for sharing. Elizabeth

Jacqueline said...

Love the cups...makes me smile big. I was wondering where you landed or ended up. We were hearing from Lindsey but not you and I'm so happy you are back.
Stopping by for a short wave and I'm off to visit the hot tub...yummy!

Hi Twyla!
Hoping your father is all fine and completely recovered now and I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's back! Hoping he can get some relief lickety split.
Oh my gosh, loving all the pink. One of my hearts desires is a pink china tea cup for my morning tea. What a wonderful collection you have and your little china pups made me grin from ear to ear.
Happy week to you!
