Loving Limoges - Tea Cup Tuesday


Hello Ladies
Yes I'm Back into Teacup Tuesday
(Even though it's now Wednesday...)
I do apologize to All of you and especially to
Martha and Terri
For my absence.... & being late...

 Now Ladies I have a confession....
 I think by following TCT
I have discovered a New Passion.....

 Possibly a new addiction even...LOL!!
I have sooo loved viewing all of your beautiful Limoges China
That I have had to invest in some myself....

A close up of the cup and saucer

 Like this Gorgeous Hand Painted Chocolate Set
Yes it was the Aqua Colors that totally had me hooked.....:)

 The Chocolate Set... I'm not even worried that one cup and saucer is missing....
The Reason I just had have to have this gorgeous set....
Was that  "Touch of Turquoise"
It's part of the colour scheme for our new
French Inspired Renovation / Redecorating....
So I think this will be just perfect...

Cant you just imagine the Gorgeous Coffee pot and maybe two of the cups and saucers
On a gorgeous side table with a lamp....

Like this gorgeous set of French Nesting Tables I have my eye on....

Because I have a new fascination with "All Things Limoges"...
I just have to show you my new Limoges Vase that arrived today....
It is just beautiful.....
The shade is a perfect Robins Egg Blue....
Even better.... Hubby likes it!!!:)

Now don't panic....
Not everything will be Turquoise....
Just a few little accents here and there....

Now I will confess that.... "just looking"
Can be soooo bad......For the budget.....:)
Because ...... I have also found these....
Aren't these Candle Holders Beautiful????
I know they are not exactly the same pattern..... as the Vase....
But definitely "complimentary" I would say....
What do you think???
So yes I am seriously considering purchasing these beauties....
Not to display them together but in another part of the room....

Well I'm afraid that's about it from me for today....
But please pop on over to


Martha & Terri's Blogs
To see all of the Beautiful Tuesday Teacups...
The reason I have a new addiction.... LOL!!
Oh and Ladies I am coming to the
Sorority Sister's Blog Party......
I am just running very late.... oops..
Please forgive me....
Just too many night shifts and not enough time atm....
(Sleeping or Awake).... sigh...
& a frequently crashing puter.... grrr

But I am coming to visit each of you....
And Thankyou So Much for taking the time to visit my blog  and
Leaving your lovely comments....

I love everything ~ it's all so beautiful! And yes, the candle holders are definitely complementary. I'm not much on perfect matches; I prefer things that just sort of go together. I think it makes things more interesting. :) Lovely finds.

My Goodness, Lou, what good taste you have - these items are absolutely beautiful, I love the hand painted teaset and the little tables with turqoise detail especially - it will be lovely to see your decorating when it's finished - what colours are in the room currently by the way? Happy colour scheming - Betty x

Oh Lou! Your new Limoges Chocolate set is heavenly, really. I don't know if I could have passed it by either. Did you find it in a shop or online?
All your french inspired pieces are lovely and will look gorgeous in a room. Will you show us pictures when you are done?
How fun!
Thank you so much for letting me drool over your turquoise beauties.
Hugs,
Terri
