  1. I'm a half full gal but usually I feel like it is overflowing. I know much joy.

  2. Oooooo Saskia!!!! Dit vind ik zooooo'n mooie tas!!!! Zag ze eerder al op blogs en zo...

  3. I have moments of "the tap is going dry!" but most days I'm a "half-full or overflowing and can't believe it so have to pinch myself" kind of person!

  4. Always half full! Your half full teacup with the heart is so cute, just like you!


  5. Oh, I hate to be the first to say half empty. This only applies when things start to go wrong and then I immediately think that things are going to go very wrong indeed. My Other Half though is the complete opposite - forever the optimist, which means that we're well matched!
    We counter balance one another!

  7. Half full, for sure!!! It is true I enjoy tea so much that my cup is always going over...but then I run fast and boil some more water!!!:o)
    The cup you have up there is soooooo lovely, dear Friend!!! Oh, pure delight! I wonder how infinite options of porcelain and China you have in Europe! I will certainly buy some while in there!!!
    Saskia, dear, the sky in coming down...it is rainimg so so sooooo much around here! Good for sewing (it is always good for sewing!!!:o)
    Aila is already sleeping. She grows fast, smart and by now she wants to be a ballerina!

    There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea. ~Bernard-Paul Heroux

    Wonderful post!

  12. I like to think of myself as a glass is half full kind of a gal ~ and the bigger the cup ~ the better! :)

  16. Hi Saskia!
    Oh your teacup is so adorable!
    My cup is half full ... many times very full and overflowing ~ I too feel so blessed * just to think of having a home and loving family makes me feel so full of JOY ♥
    bless you today and always, dear Saskia!

  17. It all depends on what's in the cup ;)

  18. Half full...and sometimes too full. I try to do too much, but always enjoy it! I love the cup, by the way. Enjoy your tea!

  19. Happy Weekend to you, too, Saskia! I'm a "cup half full" kind of gal, too! Only rarely do I feel like a "half empty" kind of gal, and I don't like feeling that way, AT ALL! I usually can get myself back, though, really fast!

  20. oh that's great. haven't heard that yet. my cup is
    often too small. :)

  21. Ok...all I see is that lovely tea bag...with that sweet heart and the green string...what kind of tea might that be my friend!!!? I want a BIG mug of that! Love tea! xoxoxo Happy weekend ...enjoy it...they go way too fast...teachers retreat tomorrow...no school just a bit of fun. Hugs. xoxoxo

  22. May your cup always be big to hold all the joy! happy weekend Saskia!!

    Zo'n grote kop lijkt me wel handig ... vooral als 't ie tot de rand toe vol is, want m'n eigen kopje is momenteel helemaal leeg! ;)

    Fijn wiekent!
    Liefs Sas

  30. Weet je wat ik nu ga doen ... ik sprint naar de kantine en ga even een nieuwe kop thee halen, jammer toch dat ze hier niet van die mooie theekoppen hebben, gelukkig wel heel veel theesoorten :-)

    Groetjes en een heel fijn weekend, Colinda

  31. jaaa half vol hoor!! en dan vooral in zo'n leuke kop haha!!

    fijn weekend!
    lieve groet, Tjitske

  32. Right now I am just trying to find the cup... never mind work out if it half empty or full. Sigh. :)


    Oh dearest, my cup runneth over! But when I start sipping at it, it is HALF FULL....there is no other way for me to see it, and for that, I am glad! And I MUST have a large mug for my tea. Even though I admire dainty little tea cups as collector's items, I CANNOT drink from them! I NEED A NICE BOWL like the French use to enjoy my tea!

    Oh dearest, my rooms are almost done, but the painting is taking so long! My sweet husband is still painting and is doing his best to finish, but it is quite the chore. Soon, SOON it will be done!!!

    What do you have planned for the weekend? I so wish to be creative, but with this project of painting, I will probably have to help him out...poor dear, he has been at it alone!


  34. Hello Saskia,
    oh my, I love the new idea, the cup could be just too big. LOL. I will remember that if I need.
    Thanks for the epiphany.
    Greetings, Johanna

  35. Half full... for sure!!! Love that heart cup!
    Have a great weekend,xo xo

  36. Hi Saskia..such a beautiful post! My cup..is always overflowing with abundance and I feel grateful!!
    HUgs..have a most happy day and a magical wkd!!

  37. I love your cup sweet Saskia and it is always half full!

    I love drinking out of beautiful tea cups, they make a difference to the taste I think, but as I love my tea I just have to have more.... However I do have a tall thin mug as well that I love to drink form, hot and black, simple but perfect. Now I think I must go and put that kettle on!!!

    Enjoy your hot cups of tea and have a joyful Friday my beautiful friend. xoxo

  38. ...che idea meravigliosa, la tua tazza!
    Buon week end, bacioni cara!

  39. I love it! I dream of collecting cups some day!

  40. Ik zit net aan een kopje thee, jou thee kop is er mooi. Fijn weekend Lieve Groetjes Esther.

  41. Hoi Saskia,

    Het liefste schenk ik volle kopjes ;-), maar mijn eigen kopjes zijn altijd halfvol!!!

    De appeltaart van de middelste was helaas mislukt. Wat er nu precies verkeerd is gegaan weten we niet, maar de smaak van het deeg was zo vreemd!! Gelukkig is ze niet ontmoedigd en gaat ze volgende week weer een nieuwe poging wagen.

    Een heel gezellig weekend! Hopelijk krijgen we een zonnetje!

    Veel lieve groetjes van Madelief xox

  42. Hello dear Saskia, as always your post is full of joy! And I can say I do count my blessings, so my cup is actually overflowing! Hope you and your dear ones will spend a lovely weekend, hugs and kisses, Lori xxx

  43. Hi sweet Saskia!!

  53. Hello Saskia, what lovely news of you coming to Paris, would love to have a glimpse of you but would not like to spoil it for your meeting with former colleague. Hope the day is sunny for you! If you need me to help in any way and can be useful, then please do not hesitate! Love, Lori xxx

  54. Delightful tea cup and a design I haven't seen before. There is a wonderful book by Joyce Rupp, using the cup as a symbol for growth and for prayer.

  55. Half full here too! Love the cups! Have a beautiful weekend, Kellie xx

  56. MA BELLE!!!! MIJN VRIENDIN, LIEVE SASKIA! I just got home from a most INTERESTING AFTERNOON! I was to meet a blogger friend who lives rather far from my house. I GOT LOST and then I hit a car!!!! Everyone is safe and sound, but OH DEAR!

    Dearest, I got something in the mail.......something from THE NETHERLANDS! I will take a quiet moment after Ruben finishes showing me his painting, and I will open it with much joy. WOW, the mail takes a long time to travel between us! I finally got a sweet package from the Dutchess who also mailed her parcel on Dec. 18th!!!

    THANK YOU, DANK U VOOR your comments! TU ES MON AMIE QUE J'AIME BIEN; Saskia, tu me soutiens toujours, et je t'embrasse ma belle!

    Je reviendrai plus tard....GROSSES BISES, Anita

  57. Hi Saskia, yes, the book by Joyce Rupp is "The cup of our life", and about 6 years ago a small group at my church read it together, a chapter at a time, and each time we met we brought our favorite cup with us. My cup has a red heart on it, so I really identified with your pretty cup.

  58. Hoi Saskia,

    Ik vind vooral je foto's zo mooi aan je blog. Die kleuren.. echt om vrolijk van te worden! Ik ga je zeker volgen!
    Groetjes Floortje

  59. dag Saskia

    Groetjes, Joop
