PETITE BEAD BOX SWAP






These are the little boxes I made for Cassandra's bead swap. I had three partners and I had lots of fun putting their beads together, Sarah of http://mysocalledjunkylife.blogspot.com/ , Karen of http://somedaysarediamonds-karen.blogspot.com/ and Cari of http://www.luckygirlgifts.blogspot.com/ . This is just a peak, but I know they all have received them. I can't wait to see what they create. I gave them all a charm from a wonderful Etsy shop, she paints beautiful roses on charms, buttons, her work is beautiful: http://www.etsy.com/shop/handpaintedpinkroses . Thank you so much Cassandra of http://myartfuladventures.blogspot.com/ for such a wonderful swap, I appreciate all your hard work. Thanks for visiting me today and have a wonderful weekend.

TEA CUP TUESDAY



Hi Everyone, the teacup that I would like to share with you today is a teacup that I just purchased while on vacation. Most of the teacups that I have are pink, so I wanted to find some beautiful blue ones. I purchased this teacup in Snohomish, WA at a wonderful antique store, I love the blue color and the design. It is a Royal Albert teacup and the name of the pattern is Enchantment and it has the year 1950 on it. Thank you Terri and Martha for Tea Cup Tuesday's, you can click the button on my side bar to see everyone's beautiful teacups. Thank you stopping by my blog today, I appreciate your wonderful comments. I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

HAPPY FIRST ANNIVERSARY STEPHEN & NICOLE



It was one year ago today that our son Stephen and his beautiful bride Nicole were married. It was such a wonderful and special day, as a parent it was one of the best days of my life. I am so happy that they found each other. Happy Anniversary Stephen and Nicole. Many, many more. We love you both.























I am back from our wonderful vacation, we had such a wonderful time and the sites were unbelievable. Alaska is such a big state and such beautiful scenes. It was a great time with our son and his lovely wife, we went on trains, planes, buses, boats, rafts, yes they talked me into white water rafting, you had to wear a special suit because the water is so cold, we took a small plane around Mt. McKinley, which is so beautiful. Unfortunately, I came down with a virus a day before we came home, and it has been a very rough two weeks, at first I thought it was a cold, but now I believe it was a flu, I am feeling better, but still get so tired easily. I hope you enjoy the pictures that I posted and thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you have a wonderful week. The first two pictures are of the new home of my son Stephen and his lovely wife Nicole.
