Tea Cup Tuesday

Hello, thank you so much for visiting me today, this Tea Cup Tuesday, I would love to share a beautiful tea cup from a very special friend of mine. Her name is Debi, of life in my studio I have been a fan of her beautiful blog and was so thrilled when she joined the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. She is just the sweetest person and I feel like she is my sister, we love the same things and it's almost like we can read each others minds. We decided to have a tea cup swap with each other. I always get so excited to get mail from Debi, it is always wrapped so beautifully and I know that I am going to love whatever she sends to me. This is the beautiful tea cup that Debi gave me, I love the beautiful soft blue and all the beautiful roses, it is so lovely. It is a Royal Stafford, made in England. Then she sent me this beautiful apron that she made, it is the prettiest apron that I have ever seen. I love the pink french material and all the lovely details, it is so special. She also sent me a silver spoon, these wonderful flamingo's, how did she know that I have been wanting some of these. She is really amazing. Thank you so much Debi, I love everything that you sent me and I will treasure your beautiful tea cup and apron and think of you whenever I use your beautiful tea cup.

Below is what I sent my sweet friend Debi. About a month ago, just out of the blue, she sent me a beautiful tea cup, I loved it so that I wanted her to have one just like the one she sent me, so I purchased a sister tea cup which is the first one I am showing, then I found the other tea cup and it just looked like her style. I made her a tea cup wall hanging and also a charlotte angel. I found out later that she collects angels and she found out that I collect aprons, like I said it's like we can read each others minds. I had such a fun time creating things for Debi. Thank you Debi for such a fun and wonderful swap. She is just the best. Please click on the tea cup on my side bar to visit all the other beautiful tea cups. Thank you Terri and Martha for hosting another wonderful Tea Cup Tuesday. I hope you are having a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Does the Queen of England know you have her tea cups? Wow, those are so beautiful and regal. My Aunts still have tea parties and I love it.

You are so adored, Terri, it is evident in the gifts you receive. xoxoxo Rhonda

Wow Terri, how lucky you are! Isn't it wonderful to have so much in common with someone? I love the cup that you received and the one you sent; both so beautiful.
And the apron, I'm so in love with that apron! I will definitely visit her blog. TFS

All. Just. Wonderful. I want teacups! I know that someday I will inherit a heap and I have no place to put them but I am overtaken by the beauty of the ones I see on Tea Cup Tuesday. I bought one at an estate sale...nothing special...from China, I believe...but I love the pink and green and turquoise all together and keep it right by my bed. These are so beautiful and I love the story of the friendship.

Oh Terri, you are just the sweetest friend. I am so glad that we decided to do this swap, you are so fun to shop and create for.
I love that we have so much in common and can share. You feel like a sister to me too and I feel so very blessed to have met you, and to be able to call you my friend.
Hugs, Debi
