Such a nice thing to come home to find a present on your front porch.
I made myself put away all the groceries first. I poured myself a drink (raspberry zinger herbal tea with a little sparkling water and a wedge of lime), and settled down comfortably in anticipation. I knew it was going to be good. After all, my friend had said something about "fragile."
I was not disappointed.
Isn't this teacup a beauty? Vintage, made in England by Rosina. I love the colors, and that beautiful rose.
Thank you dear friend.
I've already enjoyed a cup of tea in it, this delicious white tea from Teavana.
|(the chocolate was good, too)|
I told my daughter I would pack up all her china, but I got waylaid taking pictures.
Isn't it pretty? It was her great grandmother's. I told my daughter I'm looking forward to eating off of this china when she's married and has us over for dinner! It's in beautiful condition, a complete set.
It is Minton, the Lorraine pattern.
And here's a vintage covered casserole marked Vienna, Austria, which I found a few months ago.
And a sweet vintage pitcher made in Germany.
And . . . in other news, I found my mother-of-the-bride shoes.
I couldn't resist adding a few extra sparkles with PicMonkey.
I was happy to find a pretty shoe with a low heel. I'll be wearing a floor-length navy gown that goes with these perfectly.
Wedding plans are moving along; this weekend two showers are scheduled, one on Saturday and one on Sunday, so that two of the bridesmaids who are coming in from out of state can attend both.
Next week we'll be addressing all the invitations.
I'm having so much fun; so thankful for this happy time in our lives.
