THE EASTER TEA CUP SWAP & MORE TEA CUPS!


Hello Tea Cup Lovers! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 59! Today, many of us are sharing our Easter Tea Cup Swap! I have to thank Terri who worked so hard to put this together. I was so busy with a photo shoot, I just did not have the time to help. She did a wonderful job!





I was so excited to see my tea cup. I knew it would be pretty, I never expected something so beautiful. Not only did I get this beautiful tea cup, I also received so many wonderful hand made items. Here is a look at my Easter Basket!
!





Of course, you noticed the decorated Easter Basket! Just stunning, I am saving the basket in my craft room. I want it out so the world (my family) can see it. Now for the cup! I had coveted this cup from her blog. Not only did I not get punished for coveting, the cup is now mine!! Yeah! The cup is a KPM Royal Porzellan. It is a rusty rose color with cream and gold. Really the pictures do not do it justice.






If that wasn't enough, she made this amazing little book. Did you notice she even added "bling" to the gift?




It continues with handmade tea cup cards and beautiful laces on decorated tags! Easter cut-outs, just too cute! This woman is amazing!



Who was my partner you ask? Well, I am glad you asked. It was none other than the lovely and oh so talented Terri Heinz! Terri, I know I have thanked you privately more than once, I just want the ladies and gents to know what a wonderful lady and truly are! (You have noticed that we have Fabio as part of our party! We are so glad you joined us, Fabio!) Here is this week's Mr. Linky! I am excited to see what you have to share this last Tuesday of April.



This last picture is of a hand made card sent to me by my friend Dawn. Another amazing lady. Thank you Dawn! I am off to take down Easter decorations. Noah reminded me today "Easter is ober, Granma!" Have a wonderful week ladies! Blessings, Martha

I am very much enjoying visiting your teacups ladies. I have added my Blog to the list for today (I hope) because one of the pictures in my Blog today is of a very unusual tea table. It's a little bit deviating from your norm. but I so wanted to show it. The cake plate has cakes on it which have been made from flowers. Do peep and enjoy.
