Limoges Teacup...

This box was waiting for me yesterday when I returned home after a lovely day of lunching and laughter with wonderful friends. I had not been thinking of receiving any mail so this was a very pleasant surprise. I am continually amazed at the incredible world of blogging and the friends we gather along our journey.
Terri of Artful Affirmations very generously offered this lovely Limoges Teacup as one of her Friday giveaways. Please visit her blog http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com if you are not currently doing so. She is bright, witty and talented. Recently her husband treated her to Paris and she is sharing her trip with all of us.

This beautiful teacup is dainty and feminine and so lovely. I have the perfect home for it and will enjoy it's beauty every day. The colors are as soft and delicate as the photo shows.


I have the perfect spot of peace and tranquility right in the corner of my kitchen. I just love my new teacup and think it is very at home here where it will receive loving care.
My deepest thank you Terri for being so generous and giving and for sharing your world with all of us in blogland.
I am truly blessed.

  4. Congratulations Sweetie...
    It couldn't have came to a sweeter gal. I so adore the cup and the little tea cozy you have shared today is so precious. The colors are so yummy together. With your napkins and all it looks as if it has been there all along.

    I am so happy for you. I love visiting Terri. She has a "Happy Heart".

    Hope you are having a beautiful weekend. Still under lockdow. I went to the doctor yesterday. He said no release until July 19th and this time has also taken my voice away. I cannot talk until then either. It appears my vocal cords are quite strained and they need a rest from all of the coughing. I was very sad, as I really thought yesterday would be my last day and I would be free again. No such luck.

    Have a sweet day. Stop by and say hi. I so love it when you do.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

  12. Bonjour! You are so right...in blogland, I have made the most wonderful and best of friends! I wonder what happens that in "real life", friends are not as generous or excited to be with you as in blogland? I love having people in my life that are so caring. Maybe its the gap of distance that makes friendships in this space all the more special...lovely tea cup and enjoy all that your wonderful friends have to share! Anita

  14. What a beautiful cup! I'm so happy you shared it with us. Love the delicate pattern! Enjoy! I'm drinking ice tea, here, lately, due to our terrible heat spell. I don't think ice would look good with this elegant cup. :)
