Hello everyone...this cold weather makes one more likely to stay indoors and blog!
I have been wrapping up warm and must confess to a few more pajama days than normal.
So its lovely to get a swap box arrive with the post man to cheer up a wintry day!
This one contained a lovely vintage pinny appliqued with radishes.
Its so pretty and crisp and white.
Two pairs of ear rings pretty black roses and vibrant daisies.
A teeny tiny floral sugar bowl...
A Royal Albert September cup which I was so pleased with as September is my birthday month.
And lastly a wonderful shabby chic bracelet that enchanted me with charms of a singer sewing machine, a tea pot and a lovely Keep Calm and Carry-on charm. It was such along time ago that I sent off my swap box I can't really remember what I put in it..I do remember it contained a vintage trio (most of my swap boxes do funnily enough!) a pair of sugar tongs, some embroidered doileys and a selection of teas but I really can't remember the rest!
Here are the latest additions to my china tea cup collection.I am a sucker for floral cups with gold on...I just adore this one.....
My friend Margaret gave me this poppy trio, its so very delicate and I love poppies so much its what I called my youngest daughter!
This Royal Albert cup is called Primrose Hill and there is so much going on..its so detailed.
A delicate rose cup, heavily decorated inside with mint green accents.
This Paragon trio has such a pretty name...Bridal Rose...wouldn't it be lovely on the top table of a wedding for the bride to sip her tea from .
A delicate pink Tuscan trio with lots of gilding...so pretty especially with pink tea//raspberry is my favourite at the moment
And last but not least a Royal Albert December trio.......I now have three months...September, October and this one, I shall be keeping my eyes out for others..hopefully I will all twelve one day.
Well I am off to do some more embroidery...sweet peas this time...see you soon x
