Tea Cup Tuesday-New Years Eve

Happy Tea Cup Tuesday!

Soon, we welcome in a new year with
new possibilities. 
Yay!

Above is an early morning picture of some lovely Christmas gifts...
This beautiful floral  tea cup trio is from my friend Dianne
up in Stoke On Trent, England.
 
I am happy to share it for our last Tea Cup Tuesday of 2013!

Dianne really knows what I like!
This pattern's name is "Ming Rose"
I even love the name : )


What a sweet handle...


This is the dessert plate. 
I find the mix of colors lovely.


This pattern looks quite nice on the quilted box.


She sports a ring handle, which turns out is very comfortable.
I think she is going to be a nice cheery morning tea cup!


From the backstamp we can see Coalport was the manufacturer.
This English company is one of my favorites.
Their wares are high quality,
and beautifully designed.


This is Dianne's Christmas card this year...
She painted it herself! Wow!


Dianne also painted these tags for me!


I almost forgot...this is the box she used, didn't she decorate it beautifully?!

Thank you so much Dianne!
You are so kind and generous!


This super lovely mint (?) green quilted box is from Sharon,
Oh how I love it!
Sharon knows I love love love this color!


Dear Sharon made me these earrings!
I adore the stones she picked for me!
She even makes her own ear wires. 
I feel very lucky : )


As if these gifts weren't enough....
This magnificent collage by Sharon made me catch my breath!
It will be hanging in my art room soon.

Sharon also made a wonderful birdie ornament for me,
and I promptly hung it up on my tree.
But I cannot find her picture so I must save her to share later....

Sharon sweetie, Thank you so very much!


I feel blessed.
For so many reasons.

I have a few more lovely gifts to share yet in the next post.

We had a lovely Christmas here...


Emma knew just where to sit Christmas Eve...


And Betsy tired herself out running after her new santa toy.
: )

Hi Terri,
That Coalport teacup trio is just gorgeous. Oh my! What a kind friend. I am wondering if you met her blogging or have you been friends forever? Have you ever visited her home in the UK? Dianne is also my sister's name and it is spelled exactly that way ~ with two n's. My sister is also generous and kind. Your sweets look delicious too. Thank you for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday and also for visiting me! I wish you the best of everything in 2014! Karen

Hi Terri, you lucky girl! What a wonderful Christmas you've had. I'm so happy for you. Also, your pups are so adorable. I just showed Robert and he said, "that's not real, that's a toy!" LOL. I assured him that they are real! Much love to you for 2014, I treasure our friendship and love getting to know you better and better. X

Happy New Year Terri. I have been absent from Tea Cup Tuesday for so long but am making an effort to rejoin all you lovely folk. 2013 was NOT my best year. So and very much looking forward to 2014. Doing Tea Cups again will help. I loved this post. Not only the china, but the pictures of all the lovely gifts. Inspiration there!
