Hello! I know I am running a little late, but here I am.:o) I hope each of you are enjoying a beautiful week. I wanted to take a few moments to share with you something quite wonderful from some very special friends.
By now I know you have noticed the beautiful tea set above.:o) This lovely set with its pretty blue roses is a gift from the lovely Paulina at Swept and Garnished. Paulina has a lovely blog and shares with us her love for all things beautiful especially tea!:o) I so look forward to my visits to Swept and Garnished for I know something wonderful will be waiting. Her treasures of beautiful china and sweet rose filled tea sets will simply take your breath away.
I received an email from Paulina that simply read I have a gift for you. Of course I was quite excited as any girl would be. :o) Soon my packaged arrived in the mail. I could not believe Paulina had gifted me with something so beautiful, so amazingly lovely. I will cherish this gift for the rest of my life. I know tea will be the sweetest from it!:o) The blue roses are detailed and stunning, the edging of the saucer and plate, beautiful!! Oh by the way, did I tell you it is Royal Albert.:o) Thank you so much Paulina a beautiful gift indeed.
Helene the author of the lovely blog Art Glehen is a beautiful artist a true inspiration. If you have not visited her beautiful blog oh my you must. It is the kind of place where one wants to linger awhile. A wonderful way to start a morning or to end a day. I received the most beautiful Christmas card from Helene. A lovely handmade card with a print of one of her beautiful roses. I am at complete awe to think one can take something as simple as paints and brushes and create something so beautiful, amazing. Thank you so much Helene.
I am indeed an Etsy girl and get so excited when I find out that one of my blogging buddies is opening a new shop!:o) Idalia of the Chronicles of Yaya Orchid has a brand new Etsy shop filled with wonderful things created by her. In her shop you will find hand knit scarves, handmade greeting cards, lavender filled sachets, sweetly embroidered baby blankets and more!:o) Well you all know I love to make, give and receive beautiful handmade cards and had to have these made by Idalia! Give this sweet little shop a visit. You will be so glad you did!
