Very Special Teacups

Hello Darlings,
I hope you are having a great summer!  Stay cool!!!
I want to share with you two very special teacups.
The first one belonged to my precious mother,
 and the second to my beloved grandmother.
It is an honor to have inherited those teacups.

One of the first teacups my mother
had when she got married.

Beloved mother, we love you!

Mother's Love

Her love is like an island
In life's ocean, vast and wide,
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, and rain, and tide.

'Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the west,
By tender Counsel on the south,
And on the east by Rest.

Above it like a beacon light
Shine faith, and truth, and prayer;
And through the changing scenes of life,
I find a haven there.

My grandmother's teacup

Mamita, we miss you!

"Who can find a virtuous woman?
For her price is far above
Proverbs 31:10

Have a lovely day!

with lots of love,

I am joining:

Martha for Teacup Tuesday


Thank you very much ladies for hosting!


  1. Wendy,
    2 beautiful tea cups and with special memories attached to them I am sure!!

    Thanks so much for sharing!!


  2. Hi Wendy,

    What special teacups and memories of your mother and grandmother. Thank you for sharing their teacups with us.

  3. Both teacups are incredibly beautiful. And that "mother" poem is lovely and very touching.

    My mom was/is not a collector of teacups...too feminine for her tastes. However, both my grandmothers had a small collection, and 3 of them (1 from 1 grandma, 2 from another) have now made their way to me...including the beloved Old Country Roses. I was very close to both grandmothers, so I love having teacups that remind me of them.

    Happy Tea Tuesday to you,
    Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)

  4. Wendy, what a sweet post. I hope these precious cups have a special place in your home for all to see and admire! :D

  5. Wendy,
    Your photos and tea cups are lovely. What wonderful gifts from two special women in your life.

  6. What a pretty set up and the sweet memories are so heart felt.
    be a sweetie,
