Tea Cup Swap

I've been spoiled again!

My sweet, and uber-talented friend Terri
and I decided to do a Tea Cup swap together.

I always love receiving gifts from her because
she always knows just what I will love.
It's like she can read my mind.
We have commented that we must be sisters
because we share so much in common, and
always seem to know what the other will like.

As you can see above, she sent me two beautiful tea cups.
And some of the yummiest tea ever!

I love this first cup she sent. It's called Grotto Rose
and it's made by Aynsley in England. I love the
sweet pink roses, and it has the prettiest shape.

This second cup is very special to me. It's
made by Royal Albert and it's called Tranquility.

I recently sent one just like it to Terri because
it made me think of her. So she sent one to me
so now we have 'sister' cups. *sweet*

And look at this beautiful Charlotte angel she made for me.
I love her so much, I just about cried!
And Terri didn't know that I collect angels...see what I mean?

Isn't she just the sweetest thing?

She's even beautiful from the back. I love the wings!

She also made this beautiful tea cup wall hanging.

I love the little 'joy' tea bag, and the sweet little poem.

Even the gift tag she made is perfect and beautiful.

Terri, you are such a special friend. I am so blessed
to have met you, and to be able to call you my friend.

Thank you for the beautiful gifts. I will treasure them.

Easter Tea Cup Swap

I had a great time participating in the
Easter Tea Cup Swap hosted by

My partner was Trisha, and this was her first swap.

This is the beautiful tea cup she sent me.
I love the perfectly pink roses on it
and the pretty shape of the handle.

It even has a sweet rose bud on the back of the cup.

Trisha also embellished the sweetest little white basket
with lace, ribbon and flowers and filled it vintage
hankies, a sweet little spoon, a pretty brooch,
and my favorite.....candy!

Thank you Trisha for my sweet goodies!
I'm so happy to have met you
and for having the chance to swap with you!

I'm Feeling Spoiled

The lovely Melanie held a fun Easter drawing
on the Marie Antoinette site. She is always
doing sweet and fun things like that.

And I was a winner!! She gave away three of these beautiful
Easter eggs that she made. This is mine.

I just love all of the beautiful details.

And, if that wasn't enough, this gorgeous
bracelet was inside. Melanie creates the
most beautiful charms and jewelry.

I can't wait to wear it!

And then......

She held a beautiful giveaway on her blog.

And I won!!

This beautiful tea cup and spoon just tickles me pink!

And then.....

Melanie was my partner in a Tea Cup Swap in the
Marie Antoinette group! And she spoiled me again!

I love, love this beautiful Royal Garden tea cup!
The colors are so wonderful and vivid.

Love the sweet spoon, vintage doilies and candle....

and this oh-so-pretty cross stitch she made for me.

She also made this pretty cupcake. And
I just love the beautiful rosey notecards.

And I couldn't wait to try a cup of the
holiday spiced tea she included. YUM!

Melanie, you have really spoiled me
with all of these beautiful gifts.

I love everything!
Thank you, thank you sweet friend!


From The Ladies of MAMA

My poor blog has been neglected. I've signed up
to participate in so many swaps, I've been too
busy to do anything else.

The benefit of that however, is that I'm doing
lots of fun creating and receiving lots of pretties!

Here are some of the beauties I've received recently.
They were all created by the lovely ladies from
the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group.

Paper Postcard Swap

Cloth Postcard Swap

Think Spring Marie ATC Swap

The detail work in these pieces is just amazing,
and they are all so beautiful.

Thank you ladies, I love them all!!


Tea Cup Tuesday

Today, I'm sharing two tea cups with you.

This one has the prettiest pink roses and
sweet little lavender flowers.
I love the color combination.

It is a Queen Anne, made in England.

It's much smaller than most
of my tea cups, but so sweet.

The dreamy dark and light pink roses
on this cup make it one of my favorites.

I also love the shape of the handle.

This is also a Queen Anne, made in England.

Visit Terri and Martha for more beautiful tea cups.
