'p' is for pink tea time

Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage is hosting a special Tea Time Tuesday for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I am sharing a few of my very old and fragile pink teacups with you.

Limoges and Bridal Rose teacups

Our lives are as fragile as these old teacups and
we need to take care of ourselves.

Bridal Rose Bavaria

During this Breast Cancer Awareness month 
we are reminded to do regular monthly
breast self-examinations and to have a mammogram every 2 years.

Yes, it is painful.  But, you won't break.

We all know someone who has breast cancer.
We all know someone who lost their battle with it.

My sister is a breast cancer survivor and 
so is my best friend.
I know a young wife and mother who is battling this disease right now.
And I know others who have lost the battle.

Let's be aware.

Take care of your body.

Lend your support where you can.

Thank you Sandi, for hosting this weekly meme
and for making this topic of Breast Cancer Awareness Month the theme for this week.

Blessings to you all.

  3. Hi Pamela,

    Oh, I just adore your pink tea setting! I too have the Bridal Rose Bavaria teacup. It is one of my favorites. I will say a prayer for your friend battling this disease. I went through it myself a few years ago.

  4. Beautiful way to remind us by choosing tea and your precious pink teacups to take care of ourselves with breast exams and mammograms.

  5. Nice post, Pamela and good reminder. The pictures are so pretty and feminine!

  6. Beautiful post today, Pamela, both in pictures and words

  7. Lovely post, and yes we all know some family touched by breast cancer. Love your delicate pink tea cups.

  8. Our family has had breast cancer. Thank you for this wonderful post. Ladies, have your mammograms and do your monthly self breast exams. Early detection helps us so much.

  10. Wonderful post! Beautiful teacups and awesome message! May I add, lung cancer is even more deadly in women and we all need to take care of ourselves and breathe clean air whenever possible! Secondhand cigarette smoke can be deadly!

  20. Beautiful tea cups... and yes, I've known survivors and those who battled and lost. Thank goodness, it has never touched anyone in my family. I self check and get mamos...

  21. Hi Pamela
    I don't speak Inglish But you imagen are very beautiful

  22. Lovely, thought-provoking post. It's especially sad when a young woman with children at home has cancer.

  23. I can't encourage women enough to get that Mom was diagnosed this spring with Breast Cancer, and if she didn't get her mammo this spring, it would have been so much worse.

    It's better to know, and be able to fight it, then to put it off, and be helpless.

    A good technician should be able to do the mammogram with minimal discomfort.

    I love those cups, and I think that I might have a few like yours also.

  26. Thanks for this post! So very important. I have had many friends with breast cancer. Fortunately for them AND me, they are all survivors. I'm sure that is due to early detection.
