Show and Tell Friday - Teacup Winner!

Show and Tell Kelli @ There's No Place Like Home is hosting Show and Tell Friday. Don't miss seeing Kelli's pretty new pillow and all of the other treasures of the ladies participating this week!


Look what arrived at my door this week! My very first time being picked as a winner from a blog giveaway:) This treasure came from Jan and Tom over at Rose Haven. Make sure that you stop in and see their beautiful blog.
I just love the yellow rose design!
Imagine my delight when I found this special gal tucked in the box, as a surprise, with my teacup! A sweet angel dressed in style with her skirt made from a doily. How creative!
Well, we all know that angels have to fly- so I had to find a place for her to hover:)
So she is watching over my kitchen from the hutch! Thank you Jan and Tom for these sweet gifts.


I have four teacups and saucers now. Could that be the start of a collection?...hmmmm...:)

I enjoyed checking out your blog. I am a big fan of yellow and that teacup set you have is absolutely beautiful... I love Yellow... Especially yellow roses. Spring is so fun for me. I hope you enjoy your spring with your gorgeous new grand-baby ... Hope to read more about her as she grows. Take care and have a blessed weekend. Jaime & Lindsey

What a lovely gift to recieve from someone! I popped in mostly to comment on your beautiful granddaughter - now that is the absolute perfect gift! I cryed as I looked over the pictures because emotions run high at the birth of blessed child and to let you know that our Emma arrived yesterday at 11:40 am. Aren't pictures of daddy's and their little girls the best -- oh, I'm gona' cry again. Blessings to your family.
