Merry Tea Cup Tuesday and Giveaway!

Happy Holidays

It is that time of the week again, where Martha and I show off our tea cups!

Today's cup is totally different than any I have ever owned. First of all it is not from England.
It is from China. My daughter and I bought a set of 6 because we thought they were so unusual and because my daughter says they make a great prop for her Anime costumes. I think they are very festive cups! All silver, except for the inside of the cup which as you can see is cream colored. I do love the roses embossed around the saucer and cup. It looks very elegant.

This is a busy week for many of us who celebrate the season. I have been in my art room creating gifts for family. I feel a little like one of Santa's elves in there...quietly cutting, painting, sewing, glittering......! I have made more Holiday Vintage Banners, one is partially shown in the photo above. You can click on the name to go right to the video tutorial or look to my sidebar where I have links for 4 free tutorials.

Now for my Giveaway announcement!
To celebrate the holiday and New Year I am
giving away the Vintage Holiday Banner in the photo as well as a lovely pack of ephemera and embellishments, lace and ribbon!
It will be a gorgeous pack of goodies!
The date of the giveaway is December 31st!

(I will post a picture of the full giveaway next week)

To enter, leave a comment, and an e-mail where I can contact you, (or if you do not want to leave and e-mail, please check back on the 31st.)

Please enjoy the French post card image at the top.
Click on it to enlarge and then save it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and seeing my holiday tea cup.
If you would like to play along this week, just fill in the blanks below in Mr. Linky and we will be able to come and see your tea cup. Please make sure you showcase a tea cup in your post. Also, check the link and make sure it takes us to your site.
Holiday Hugs to YOU!

KathyB. said...

I would love to win the banner and I have already watched the tutorial video and plan to make one myself next year.

The teacup is one like I have never seen before and it does fit well with an Anime theme. The teacup is beautiful.I wish there were other descriptive words for things in our language, but most often "lovely" and "beautiful" are the best words to use. I think "uniquely beautiful" are the words I would use for the teacup you have shown, and I would be proud to own it~

Jann said...

Terri--the link to your email address doesn't work on my computer, and so I don't have your address to send an email, but would you let me know where you got the silver bells you put on your banner? I've been looking for bells like that for a couple of years, but all I've been able to find are the common kind of little bell, not the vintage-looking ones. My email is on my blog--thank you so much!

Donna said...

Hi Terri:
That is the most interesting tea cup I have ever seen! Truly a treasure. Makes me want to sip some tea right now. I am loving the pictures of the snow. Here in CO we have had none, which is really strange. We had a lovely brown Christmas. I love the banner that you made and would love to be part of your contest. What a treasure to hang up.

Happy New Year!

Sue K said...

Terri~I am fairly new to your blog, but have been reading and enjoying it for several months now. I love, love teacups! I can remember, as a girl, staying with my grandmother and we had tea every afternoon at around four. She had a collection of beautiful teacups...about 50 of them on display in her dining room. I got to pick which one I wanted to use each day. What a treasured memory.
What a generous giveaway!! Please put my name in for a chance.
Happy New Year!
hugs, Sue K
