Teacup Thursday #43

I just have had so many things going, I can't seem to get to my blog except to post my Teacup Thursday posts! Another week has slipped by. I spent last weekend helping Jim set up his booth for his antique show  at the Clark Co Fairgrounds in Washington. I forgot to take my camera when we set up, so these pictures are from the last day. He had a very successful show! The next one will be in March at the Expo Center in Oregon.

I'm now the owner of this darling wooden cradle.

I think I need to make a quilt for this one. Next project???
Here's something that I got last summer in Port Townsend and I never got to share it. It's a glove press...pretty cool, huh?

Oh yes, it is Teacup Thursday! I was going to show another Christmas gift, but I packed it away until after Valentines. It will make a good spring feature. I do have one to share that was also a gift. My friend Lynda gave this to me as she thought it should live in my tea room. It's a bit different as it's a moustache
cup. It's really lovely and is marked but I just can't read it at all.

As most of you know, I'm a big Tasha Tudor fan. I received my first newsletter from the Tasha Tudor Museum. It is so exciting, wonderful reading with lots of pictures. I so hopeful that the family will be able to build a very special museum...maybe open her home someday as a museum!

Do have a great week ahead, just incase I don't post again until next Teacup Thrusday. Thank you Miss Spenser for hosting our special Thursdays.

Mustache cups are so interesting and yours is quite pretty. Love the cradle! Enjoy your weekend, my friend.

That is a beautiful teacup. Most moustache teacups I have seen have been pretty masculine but this is more feminine. The cradle is beautiful too. I am glad your husband had a successful show. I love antique shows...Christine

That's a very nice mustache cup. I completely understand about being being too busy to blog.

Your mustache cup is very pretty! I am always amazed at how beautiful these cups are, as they were for men! But apparently, men used them, flowers and all!
I too am a big fan of Tasha's. She was an amazing woman.
