Tea Cup Tuesday-Beauty


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!!! (crowd goes wild!)

Another week flew by and Spring is definitely here.
It is hard not to think about beauty at a time like this! 


When I opened my back door this morning to let our little doggies out,
I was greeted with a cool fresh breeze filled with the smell of newly bloomed flowers.
The air was so fresh, so full of oxygen, I felt more alive just taking a deep breath. So my husband and I took the girls (doggies) out for an early walk to get as much enjoyment out of the peaceful morning. 


(What a treat in mint!)


(I do love this beautiful gold design around the outer edge of the plate and inner cup.) 


(Simple yet fancy handle touched with gold and gold pedestal base)


(Beauty in a cup!)

 (And yes!....it is a Paragon! As you all know one of my all time favorite companies.)

Beauty is something I look for... and I find it,
in tea cups, in china,
in sunshine pouring through the trees,
in laughter, in smiles,
in flowers, in puddles, in music, in whistling,  in people... 


I could go on and on...
For I finally found out that I can find beauty any where and every where if I want.
Even if my day is not so pleasant a day....it can be a little better if I open my eyes.
I am not always actively looking, sometimes it blows gently in my face
like this morning when I opened the back door.
And for that, I am truly grateful! 

 (My little doggies, Wee Betsy and Miss Emma, they both want a sip of tea....after all they are from Yorkshire, lol!)
Hugs,
Terri

(Oooops, almost forgot! Anyone out there interested in participating in a Downton Abbey ATC swap???)

If you would like to join in Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha ( I know you will want to visit her and see her amazing china!) and I, just go and prepare a post with a tea cup you would like to share in it, then come back here and link up with Linky Tools below. Now we can come and visit you!

Wonderfully elegant teacup. To walk in a spring landscape is a delight. One drawback for me is that the soil is wet in many places. My dog ​​usually go directly into the bath. I wish you many wonderful tea moments of the week! Zinnia

Finding happiness in every day is a MUST! It's good for the heart and soul. I just love your little "girls!" They are so adorable. Your teasets are beautiful and I must look into Paragon. Right now I seem to be having an affair with Aynsley. It's all new to me and I'm loving it!
Have a joyful day!

Elaine said...

Hi Terri, a beautiful cup indeed and it does feel a beautiful time at the moment, I just came in the door past a perfect camelia bloom, looking at my delicate white daffodils and thought very much the same, you can almost breathe it in. Happy days

I would love to take part in your ATC swap.
