A Beautiful Swap

In our Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group, we had a wonderful swap, Marie's Tissu Che'rit Le Journal Kit swap, hosted by the lovely Melanie. We sent our partner beautiful supplies to make our own journal and my partner was Melanie. These are the beautiful supplies that she sent me, all of these beautiful things were in a lovely little suit case, which I love. I made her a heart to hold the supplies that I sent her. I will show you my finished journal in the next post. I loved all the beautiful supplies that Melanie sent me, I had such a wonderful time planning and creating my keepsake journal. Thank you so much Melanie, this was such a wonderful swap, thank you for coming up with this wonderful idea and hosting it. I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday. Hugs, Terri

I love these ladies, they make me laugh so hard, there were times I could not see the screen through all my happy tears. Everyone donated a prize to giveaway and we had questions about Marie, these are the beautiful prizes that I won. The first prize that I won was from the lovely Debi, it is this beautiful tea cup, oh it is so pretty and then she sent me all these lovely things, she packaged them in this beautiful draw string bag which is so beautiful, I love the vintage lace. She sent me these beautiful pink gloves, how did she know I collect vintage gloves? This is my first pink pair and all these beautiful trims, lace and flowers and vintage jewelry. She is just the sweetest and most talented person. It has been such a delight to met her and get to know her. She is such a special friend. Thank you so much Debi, I will think of you every time I use your beautiful cup and I will treasure all the beautiful things you sent me.

The other beautiful prize that I won was from the lovely Martica, she made this beautiful banner pocket, it is so pretty and I love it. I love the beautiful colors. I have a perfect spot to hang it.

Tea Cup Tuesday

Hello, and thank you for visiting me today. Today is Tea Cup Tuesday and I want to share with you two cups that I recently purchased at the great Treasure Mart, when I first spotted these cups I lifted them up to see where they were made, there is no name on them, just numbers, the china is such a creamy and soft color china and the cups are so delicate, they both have the same pattern, but one cup is smaller and the cups are shaped differently. I love all the gold on them and I love the handles, they are so delicate, with clovers on them. The bottom of the cups are different too, they have a large lip. If anyone knows anything about these cups I would love for you to share with me. I love the beautiful flowers on them and the gold inside the cups too. I want to thank Terri and Martha for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday and please click on the teacup on my right side bar to visit the other participants. I hope you are having a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri
