Teacup Thursday #42

I can't believe that I didn't post at all since last Teacup Thursday! Here it is Thursday and time for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday. It was a busy week and the quilt retreat was just great. I forgot how nice it was to actually attend one as a guest. I hope to still do a post about it.

I'm sharing two more gifts from dear friends. Kristen gave me 3 lovely rose snack tray sets made my Lefton, hand painted. She was here last Valentine's Day from MA and this was part of my Christmas present. They just go so perfect in my tea room...sweet of her to pick something so perfect.

Last year, some of my friends decided to participate in a handmade gift exchange. When I saw my friend Lisa from California at the retreat, she had my gift for me. It's so darling and again, just the perfect colors for my tea room. She made it and I'm going to slip my Valentine cards into it...won't that be cute?

I love the ribbon rose in the corner . Thanks so much dear did a great job.

When I was taking down my Christmas things and putting back my everyday items in my tea room, I found this sweet little book. It's been filled in and came from a very small town in Central Oregon.

Here's an entry for "Thrusday" that is very sweet and the author offers some advise.

Winter paid us a visit last night...a beautiful snowfall. Temps warmed up this morning and it's all gone tonight. Now there's concern about all the rain that is coming our way and flooding. Ah, winter.

Those green tea cups and saucers are so lovely, Linda. I have a tea set that kinda matches them. I wonder if they belong together! Thanks for stopping by!..Christine

Hello dear Linda,
What pretty snacks sets! I am a lover of green and pink together so I am swooning over them. You have such thoughtful friends.

I am celebrating Tea Time's 2nd Birthday next week and I would love for you to join me. Your snack sets would be perfect as they have roses on them and I'm doing a rose theme.

Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

Oh, Milady Linda! Such a lovely tea post - teacups and the placemat is stunning! Love the fabric print, colors, rose - everything!! Boy, I'm in trouble in a fabric store when ideas are popping - as a collector, I collect fabric designs I like thinking "someday I'll so something with this" - had to stop THAT expensive habit.

But, sure would love that vintage post card print - and your Lady's Book! So nice to wake up to genteel thoughts and images today - and we had snow, too . . .
