Tea Cup Tuesday-Sweet Pink


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Christmas is only 8 days away...
Are you enjoying the holiday season? 


This time of year, I look forward to the twinkling lights all around our neighborhood...
the pretty decorations in shops...and the Christmas programs on the television. I enjoy getting cozy with a cup of cocoa and a English movie.
How about you?
What says "Christmas Cheer" to you?



Tea cups can be a pretty addition to holiday decorations....
The cup I am sharing today is a sweet little pink vintage cup...
very simple, pink, cream and gold. 
The inside is just plain cream. 
And that is fine. 
I do love the gold trim pattern!


This little cup works well with others : )
It's simple beauty lends it to a number of different uses...
In fact, I usually keep pretty little bits of vintage lace in it.


She was manufactured by Colclough in England.
And we see by the plate backstamp and the cup backstamp
 that there are not an original pair.


The cup's stamps suggesting the 1920s and the plate's stamp suggests the 1930s.
Without looking at the backstamps you would not be able to tell the difference.


 I am wishing you a very merry week!
Thank you for your good health wishes,
I am still recovering, but I can tell it won't be long now.
Thank you so much for every comment, and all your lovely kind words about the stuff I create : )
You all warm my heart!

 If you would like to join in Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha and I, just link up your tea cup post below.
We would be delighted to come and visit you!

If you haven't yet seen my 

Hugs,
Terri

Christmas Tags and Giveaway

Hello All!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
It is now mid December and we are in full holiday spirit!
I have been stuck in bed with a flu, and I am dreaming up all kinds of things to make!
Soon, I will be up again and at it.

Last week I was able to begin some Christmas fun in my art room,
I started with jewelry and ended up with some tags.
Here are three different styles for some of my family. 


Mary in silver and cream.


I really do enjoy the stitching!
I am not sure if my sewing machine agrees though! Lol! 
Paper and layers of all kinds of things! 


I have a passion for glitter,
but try (I did say try) not to go overboard...


Here is a festive holiday tag, with a familiar angel image.
I like to use bits of old things...
Like the lovely blue bit of paper here is from a hundred year old paper book.


Mixing old with new...


A softer, more romantic angel tag...


I used a tissue paper transfer of a really old French receipt for the background...
and bits of an old vintage table cloth....


And I tucked in a little piece of that old pale blue paper here too.
I love the mix of fine glitter and round dots of glitter.

It really does help me get into the holiday mood to work on these for loved ones.
My shopping is just about done, only a couple last minute items,
most of ours gifts are home made.

(ooops! See the nail in the wall??? I forgot I moved a picture to be fixed!)

Here is the new organizer I just finished last week.
It was so much fun!
I really recommend it as a gift for an artsy friend.
My husband gave it to me last year,
(bought at Archiver's)
and I just couldn't let this Christmas come and go without it being created.
(I will share close up pics in next post)

You can see the corner of my newly covered couch, and I promise I am really going to share a full image!
I had a crazy idea to repaint my room and I was waiting to show it off with the new color...
we will see :  )
