Lovelies and My Favorite Tea Cup

This is my favorite tea cup.
There is a wonderful giveaway at
All she asks is that you post a picture of your favorite tea cup and then leave a comment on her blog (which is lovely).
It was a daunting task for me to choose a favorite but this is the one I chose:).
Now for the lovelies!
has a lovely etsy shop filled with beautiful treasures.
Her blog is gorgeous too!
Her photography captures the beauty that surrounds her and it's always a treat to visit Nancy as her heart is as beautiful as her blog.
I spied a wonderful hand-painted perfume bottle while visiting her last week and as soon as she posted it in her etsy shop I snatched it up!
This is the name of her etsy shop (you really need to shop there).
The package arrived today and of course Kramer helped me open it:).
This beautifully wrapped little surprise sat on top...
while this gorgeous little treasure waited to be unwrapped.
The beauty of this package was not the wrapping but the graciousness and friendship behind a surprise treasured gift from Nancy.
She gifted me with this amazing vintage book of Bible verses-I nearly fell over when I opened it!
Each page is filled with God's Word and beautiful pictures.

Nancy and I have been blogland friends for a long time. I always enjoy visitng her blog as it brings a smile to my face and reminds me to take time to enjoy the beauty around me.

Nancy-thank you so much for such a lovely and gracious gift!!! You are truly a treasured friend!

OK everybody-treat yourself-visit Nancy at Fete et Fleur and then take a stroll through her etsy shop for some wonderful treasures!

How pretty is that bottle!! No wonder why you snapped it up, before someone else had a chance to! I will drop by her shop on Etsy, especially if that perfume bottle is just a sampling of what one can find there. I do so love love love ETSY!! As for your cup, what that is a pretty one. I have heard of that give-away and the tea cup pictures on other blogs, what fun. I fear I don't have any really pretty cups, just every day ware for a large family. But I am enjoying everyone else's pics of their cups! Weather update here, warmish and sunny today, just lovely after the storm on the weekend. Crazy isn't it, that such storms hit Germany! hugs, Debby

Dearest Kim!

It was such a thrill to have you purchase this sweet little bottle. Thank you! I'm so glad you are enjoying the little book (It so reminded me of you). It's pouring rain here today, and this post has brought sunshine to my heart.
