O the month of May, the merry month of May,
So frolic, so gay, and so green, so green, so green!....

I'm so excited to be posting for Tea Cup Tuesday with Terri at Artful Affirmations. I love to visit her on a Tuesday and look at the beautiful tea cup photos she always shares and visit some of the members of the tea party.
Months ago I found a tea cup and saucer in a local antique shop. At first I wasn't sure I wanted a tea cup with a month written inside the cup and on the saucer. I thought is was pretty, and I liked the shape and colors. Now, my friend, Terri could write a fabulous description of this cup telling you about the company where it was made and give all the fine details of the cup's design. I know nothing about the company except it is English. There is a pretty Lily Of The Valley flower pattern on the saucer and on the inside and outside of the cup. There is a gold edge on the cup and saucer and a green leaf pattern surrounds the edges of the cup and saucer. The featured month is "May." My mother and my great granddaughter were both born in May. I will celebrate both of them and drink tea in the cup in the merry month of May. I plan to give the cup to my great granddaughter when she is ready to collect tea cups ( she is having her first birthday this week!). Come back to visit on Saturday to see my May Queen!
I'm also having a 200th post and book launching celebration and give away. If you would like to help me celebrate click on the previous post (or click here) leave a comment on that post and become a follower/friend for a chance to win one of my three give away gifts.
