It has been sometime since I've joined Terri of Artful Affirmations and done a Teacup Tuesday post - but not very long since I bought my last teacup. Just this last auction I went to I picked up this lovely one.
I love the softness of the roses on this cup. So delicate to behold.
Set with my rose FTD teapot it looks feminine and in need of my favorite tea. Don't you agree?
It is a Lefton Teacup .But I am not sure how old it really is. One day I must purchase the book about Lefton China.
For decades, Lefton has produced china that makes great gifts and collectibles. Lefton china was founded in Chicago in 1941 by George Zoltan Lefton, who had arrived from Hungary two years before. George Lefton admired delicate Oriental pottery and at the close of World War II he headed to newly occupied Japan to strike a deal to import Japanese made pottery under the Lefton name. The following year the first of these products arrived in the United States, bearing the mark “Made in Occupied Japan.” The quality was good and the price made the china accessible to most Americans.
Have a Wonderful Teacup Tuesday.

Pellie has an Upper Respiratory Infection, whatever the heck that is? I just thought she had a cold., but what do I know? Any whooooooooo she doesn't feel like spending much time up out of bed so I best make this short.
It's another Rainy, cold day here in my little corner of the world, so all I can do is look out the front door at the world as it passes by. Not really much to see - an occasional car , a school bus or two and the mailman as he makes his appointed rounds. Drat!!! No mail for us today.
Today is National Clean Out Your Computer Day, yet i don't foresee Pellie celebrating that one till she's feeling better.
She made this cute little picture before she got sick - so I just thought I'd share it with you. I like all the kittens in it.
I'll probably do my vising later in the day - cuz now I got to go nap with Pellie.

It is cold and rainy here in my neck of the woods. The house is dark & gloomy, so I thought in an effort to cheer myself up; I'd show the post cards I purchased at the auction last weekend.
|These are the holiday/birthday and generalized greeting ones|
|As you can see these all have people in them|
|These are the naughty one (which I blurred so as not to offend anyone).|
|Last but not least the animal/cat ones.|
Hope you all have a great day.

I have been busy getting the house all decorated up for Valentines day. Granted it's not as elaborate as Christmas decorating. But every little decoration helps relieve some of winters gloom.
|I used Fotor to make this collage|
A couple weeks ago when Sir Knight was home sick - I had some time on my hands - where we had to be quite - sooo - I decided that was a great time to start on a valentines day banner to hang in my dinning room window. I can't seem to get a good picture of it hanging up so I made this little collage to show you all the hearts that were made for it.
When Sir Knight woke up he was intrigued and wanted to help - so we moved all the creative items to the bedroom on a card table and with a bed tray Sir Knight helped make some of the hearts.. Can you guess the ones he made? Probably not, he really surprised me and let a little of his feminine and kid sides out when he created..
This banner I made a couple years ago and I still love it - so the mantel was an excellent place for it to hang.
I spent so much time on line trying to find a free, easy to use, collage maker that I really need to get back to my chores.
Hope you have a great day.

Saturday before Pellie and Sir Knight abandoned me to go to an auction; Pellie played on the computer and came up with these super cool pictures of me. She really likes playing on those photo manipulation sites and I really enjoy all the cool pictures she makes of me.
This guy would be one heck of a cool artist if he could really paint my portrait that good with spray paint.
Then he would be on the cover of Fame Magazine - instead of me. But I must be humble - it is me on the cover. MOL
Hope you all have a great day and a terrific week.
