Tea Cup Tuesday


Hello All
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Today is Memorial Day...a day originally known as Decoration Day.
It was begun to honor of the Union soldiers who gave their lives in the American Civil War.
Eventually it became a day to remember all those who gave their lives in service our country.
It has also become a day to remember loved ones who have passed on.




Tea cups seem to be a small matter in comparison to this day...
And I have chosen one I have recently shown, only because of the flowers...
Forget Me Nots


 Which is what today is about, not forgetting those who have served our country,
and those family and friends who are no longer with us...
but reside in our hearts memory.


Memory can be a comfort.


And so I give thanks.
For those who have served...
for my loved ones who I have many happy memories of...

Thank you.

Hi Terri! I love this cup. I love it because it's blue and I love it because it has one of my favorite flowers painted all over it. I have always loved forget-me-nots.
I loved your beautiful tribute for this special day Terri!

Happy Memorial Day, Terri!
Your forget-me-nots teacup is darling! It's just so pretty and your post is lovely, honouring all those who gave so much and those who have gone before us.
I am a Canadian and I didn't realize that it was a day to not only remember soldiers but loved ones who have passed as well. Thank you and have a lovely week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Very beautiful hydrangeas, they work so well with the silver trophy. Very fitting for the day with the pattern of forget me not on the teacups. A flower that is so cute and you can not miss. I wish you a wonderful week! Zinnia

Hi Terri, the loveliest Forget-me-nots cup-so beautiful, and sweet.
My flowerbed is cowered in Forget-me-nots just now, a blue sea of little flowerheads.

What a really lovely post Terri. That is a beautiful teacup and the hydrangea is just gorgeous-I love that flower especially because it brings back so many happy memories of time spent at my great grandmother's home. She had several bushes of gorgeous blue blooms. Thank you.
