Tea Time Thursday # 14

I have been enjoying my box of treasures from my friend Jennifer of Adventures in Mixed Media and thought these little gems would be fun to share today for TEA TIME THURSDAY. I love old paper and Jennifer picked out some very special things for me.

This is a vintage card for Mother. It could be a Mother's Day card or a birthday card. It has a very sweet message inside. Isn't it just adorable? I love the roses on the cup.

This little teacup must have come out of a scrapbook. It's an advertising piece from a furniture company.

The last time I went to tea, I wore my tea and heart charm bracelet. I love charm bracelets and enjoy wearing them. The charm in the center says "TEA CHAIRMAN" and I just think it's a riot. I get to be  chairman when we go to tea. I found it years ago at an antique shoppe.

I bet you are thinking, what is that? My friend Nancy helped me make it at the quilt retreat. You make this pillow out of two fat quarters. It's sewn so you get a neat shape. It's to use to prop up your hands or arms when you do hand work. The strap is for carrying when your arms might be full!

I had to quilt the fabric with my machine first. That was really fun, but took quite a bit of time. I like the look and it made the pillow better. I love the teacup fabric that I found a few days before the retreat. I had no idea what I was going to make out of it! I just decided to take it with me to the retreat....perfect!

Do you remember when I did the blog post on my friend Lynda and the friendship ball? I had coffee with her on Monday morning and it was my turn to receive the ball. I was so excited and wondered what she had picked for me.

Inside was this adorable bird and little scripture verse. Lynda love birds and how perfect for spring.

Then I found this tiny charm that says BLESSED. I had tears in my eyes when I read the little note she had tucked inside about being my friend. I am blessed to have her for a friend! This little friendship ball is really fun!

Happy Tea Time Thursday. Such a busy week! This Friday will be my Tasha Tudor First Friday Book Review. Stop back over for the review.
