Tea Cup Tales

I'm linking up today, with my friend Lisa, for her special Teacup Tales post. We are to share a special teacup story. Since I'm not at home right now,...

(see, here I am sitting in a hotel room in Orlando)
...I don't have photos on hand of my pretty tea-cup collectionon to share, so I'll just share the story.

My teacup collection began about 9 1/2 years ago. My friend, Jo Ellen, who so graciously and patiently led me to the foot of the cross, and introduced me to my Savior Jesus Christ, gifted me with my first TeaCup.

Jo Ellen has a lovely tea-cup collection, and one day after lunch at her house, she presented me with a very pretty (I believe Prince Albert) rose teacup and saucer set. That was my first teacup. I've since added 11 others to my collection, one of which was gifted (at her choosing) to my best friend Kim on her birthday just a few months ago. :)

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it! If you want to hear more Teacup Tales, pop over to Lisa's, and check out the links.
Have a beautiful, Jesus filled day!

  1. Thanks for sharing with us! Love your photo sister.

    I have my Grandma's tea cup set (she is with the LORD) and I miss her DAILY and often I look at her set and it makes me smile.

    I use it on occasion but I'm truly a big mug coffee girl :)

    Blessings and love.

  2. Awwww!!! Sweet my friend, sweet. Not as sweet as my story but still sweet. How many times can I say sweet in one post? LOL
    You know I love you and I'm glad i got to talk to you today and sit and have a virtual coffee with you!

  3. Love it ! Yet another great post - thanks !

  4. It has never occurred to me to collect teacups!

    I was looking at them when we went to Royal Doulton, but the thought of Samuel being in the same vicinity of that much beauty...

    Now you get it??


    YES! Let's do a cup of tea today!

  5. Oh what a lovely way to start your collection! I do like your story. Thank you for sharing even though you're far away from home - not really any further from me though - LOL!

  8. What a special way to start a collection! I collect so many things, I don't know why I never did tea cups. Maybe coz there's no room for them. 8-}

    Love ya loads, sweet thang!
    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  9. Hey sweet friend! I love your teacup story and what a delight your first teacup was from the precious hands of the person who led you to the Lord!

    My Nonny always had teacups out but we drank coffee in them. When she went home to be with the Lord, a few of her cups were passed to me and I treasure them.

    I wish we had some time together this week! As it turns out I think Holly is moving in today so the Lord must have known we wouldn't have had much time to be in a bubble together! lol

    I love and miss you, my friend.

  10. What a lovely story! Thanks for sharing.
