Tea Cup....

Welcome to my Tea Cup posting today! I have this little display in Our dining room on the china cabinet that was my Mother's.

The beautiful plate in the back is Royal Winton Ivory England and the Cup & saucer are Art Deco in design MZ Altrahleu Czechoslovakia.

This charming bowl is marked Imperial Porcelain England and all of these pieces look great with the wallpaper we had chosen for the room.

Our mantel clock is made by The Sessions Clock Co. Forrestville Conn. USA
and is one of three we have in Our home..I love hearing the wonderful chimes!

I would like to thank the following lovely Ladies for hosting today..please check out all of the Tea posts and meet some wonderful friends as I have these past few months!
Take care and have a wonderful week!

Needlework I Love It!!

Thank you for visiting me today..I am sharing with you my collection of needlework pictures I have throughout Our home. I hope you enjoy.. This top photo is a piece I purchased in a small Antique shop in Maine and I still have not done anything with it..hoping to frame it this Fall. It is a large piece about 24x24 so will be lovely once adorned with a frame.
This sweet girl was made by our neighbours Mother In Law and she could not wait to sell it to me at a garage sale for $10.00! It is so beautiful..of course I paid her quick & ran into the house!

This floral picture was made for me by a Dear Aunt & I treasure it!

These next two smaller pieces were picked up in shops while we were vacationing in PEI a few years ago.

The picture above is one of two I have with the same design but as you will see the stitcher used different colours of threads and framing choices.

The floral above was made by my Sister In Law..

The rose picture at the top as well as the deer picture were saved from heading to the trash..can you believe it?? The bottom one is the other bird piece I mentioned above.

This lovely pair were a gift from my Sweet Husband..

And last but not least the bottom picture was given to us from a friend as it went nicely with our Dining Room wallpaper..lucky me!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my collection as much as I enjoyed showing it too you..have a great rest of the week!

Delightful PINK Saturday!!

Welcome to my early Pink Saturday Post..I am featuring parts of our powder room in the first few photos..

As you may have guessed from all of the vintage soap labels on my sidebar..I love fancy..sweet smelling soaps! I have a problem passing them by and rarely return home from a shopping trip without a few new bars..

The glass jar in this photo belonged to my Grandmother & then my Mother
and I love storing my soaps in vintage jars & containers..don't they look pretty?

The vintage mirror below was found in a local Antique shop and the needlework is so delicately done..I love it!

The victorian print below is a beautiful piece I found when we visited PEI two years ago

I hope you enjoyed my PINK's today..Have a wonderful time visiting everyone who has joined this event. Thank you Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for hosting!
