Tea Cup Tuesday

Welcome to my Tea Cup Tuesday post..

Won't you join me in the Garden today as the sun is shining and the birds are singing so sweetly..

My blue tea cup today is marked Japan and has a luster finish that sparkles in the sun light!

I am mixing some of my blue transferware pieces to create a crisp clean tea table....

My vintage tea cloth is a bright white with Asian inspired bue stitching on all four corners of the cloth..

Thank you for joining me today and enjoy your visits to all of the Tea Cup Tuesday posts..Thank you Martha & Terri for hosting!
Blessing ...

More Pinks

Thank you for stopping in today...I missed registering for Pink Saturday this week but wanted to post some of my Pinks..
The top photo is some more items on our mantel. The photo is of my Great Grandmother Agnes and the sweet little blond girl is my Grandmother Laura. My great aunt Alice is holding the flower bouquet and Uncle Ray is sitting on her Agnes's lap. My Grandmother passes away at 32 years of age in childbirth so I treasure this photo...
I love collecting vintage post rose collection is my favorite. They are under glass on this oval tray table in our Parlor.

I dabbled in stain glass design for a few years and this is the first piece I created.

This sweet little jug is made in Germany and I love the delicate shape and of course the rose decoration.
Have a wonderful weekend & please stop in again..

Happy Pink Saturday!

Welcome to my 3rd Pink Saturday! Thank you again to Beverly for hosting this wonderfayl event!

The sweet rose jug in the photo above sits on our Mantel and is one of my favorite pieces made in Germany! I found her at a local antique mall and it contains some dried roses I have rec'd from my Sweet Husband.

This darling vase also graces the mantel and was purchased in Salem Massachusetts a few years ago when we toured the New England States and was made in Germany. The little pink jug in the background is made by Limoge.

This little display is on a table in our Parlor. The needlework was found at an antique aution and the enamel/glass & brass container with hand painted portrait was a gift from guess who..(I know I am spoiled) on our trip to Prince Edward Island, Canada.

My little needlework bag is also displayed in the Parlor and I use it on a regular basis..

The tapestry is on one of the pillows I found at Harrods while on our 10th Anniversary (trip of a month in London, England!) I love the soft pinks & greens..

This display is on the Secretary desk in the sitting room and the photo is of a Family member..the rose stamp container was purchased online at Victorian Trading Company..check it out..lovely Victorian treasures!

Have a wonderful time visiting all of the Pink Party's! Take care..
