Last week for Terri and Martha's Tea Cup Tuesday I shared the beautiful tea cup swap Wanda sent me. Here is the cup and giftie I mailed off to her.
Wanda wished for pink and green or pastels (and "loves roses"), so here is the cup I found and fell in love with for her. The background that the roses are floating on is the palest baby blue color. I thought it was quite lovely.
The mark is Adderley bone china. And again, I love the pretty crown and even the off centeredness and other markings.
The set also came with this not truly matching, but coordinating dish. Wanda collects those gorgeous sugar cubes like she sent me, and she said it is perfect for them.
This is the package of extra goodies I sent. Several cards full of lace and trims, tea tucked in little paper pouches that I sewed, and a french ephemera journal with a fabric cover.
Here is a closer picture of the journal. I thought it might be fun to write in as she has tea, or maybe to tuck photos or mementos inside.
These some of the inside pages. My favorite is the first, a to-die-for amazing French ledger page with beautiful calligraphy. I won it as a prize in my Marie group from a dear friend of mine, Rhonda.
