Tea Time Tuesday


When my godmother moved from her home last year, I helped my cousin do the sorting and organizing for the estate sale.
I asked if I would be able to have this tea cup with my favorite flowers on it.
My cousin was very gracious about letting me bring it home. Violets are also the flower of the month for my birthday!
After coming home later than usual, I enjoyed more violets in bloom. Waiting for them each spring, knowing they WILL come up again, reminds me of my "word" believe. It's my signature picture, although why only part of it shows on some comments is beyond me! Then on other comment pages the whole word appears...I am not going to try to fix it because when I do that, things disappear!

If you were to come have tea with me, you'd see believe in several places. They all have helped me this past year to remember and know...
He that believes and is baptized shall be saved. Mark 16:16a

Please visit Sandi's Tea Time Tuesday at Rose Chintz Cottage. She is a blessing to me! ♥♫

Hi Marilyn,
Your teacup is very sweet and a precious treasure! I'm so happy you got to keep it. I like the word "Believe" also. It is a very important word and one which says a lot about you. I believe in Jesus and I'm so glad you do too! Thank you for sharing today and for joining me for Tea Time Tuesday. Hope you have a lovely week filled with Sonshine.

Blessings,
Sandi
