Teacup Thursday #49

Oh my's Thursday already! I feel like I have been running and trying to get so much done and I'm failing. Hello Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday. I was hoping to have my St Patrick's things up but I don't think that's going to happen. I did get this lovely Aynsley cup and saucer last fall, so thought I would share it as it is March. I love the shamrocks inside the cup. I'm very fond of designs that are added inside the teacup.

I must share with you my special gift I won from Gayle at Garden of Daisies. I adore her blog and I was so surprised when I won her giveaway! Gayle, I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to post about my prize.
So, this is what the mailman left at my door~

And this is what I found when I opened it~

And then I discovered the beautifully wrapped gifts~don't you love all the colors?

And this is what was hiding inside the lovely papers~

I just love everything! The lavender and lilac soap, the little floral pouch, the lovely lavender bad and
I really couldn't believe the most wonderful bracelet. Gayle, how did you know I love love love bracelets?

When my husband came in and saw all the goodies, he asked if it was Christmas! Thank you dear blog friend. You certainly outdid yourself! Very kind and generous gifts. I will treasure them.

And yes, I'm saving all the colorful ribbons!

I have on more thing to share with you this week. Last Saturday, I took my friend Nancy to tea. It was part of her birthday gift. I picked her up and we drove to Myrtle's Tea Room in Richfield WA. My last two visits, I forgot my camera, but not this time!

The owner Elizabeth had it all decorated for spring...very sweet and festive!

Here's Nancy with her first cup of tea...she was enjoying herself and so was I!

Yummy treats......

Shamrocks cups are filled with magic... at least that's how they make me feel( ha Ha)..I almost expected to see a little leprechaun pop out of it !!!..Sweet teaset.

OMG what a delightful package ...I can well imagine the excitement of unwrapping all those winnings...Congratulations...You'll have to take a picture of the bracelet on your arm.

A cup of tea in the teahouse sounds delightful too ... Lovely post , Lady Linda....Hugs

Good day, Milady! Happy teatime to you as I sip my new Roobios Blueberry tea I just picked up today from my local tea room!

Enjoyed all your recent activity here - especially your new peg doll! What a steal that was! She has an ancient loved look and I'm sure is quite the proper lady when it comes to teatime.

Thank you for your kind comments on my Blogoversary post. Very excited about all the grand times this past year - and hopeful for more to come!
