Vintage Richelieu

Hello everyone,

I can never resist a pretty piece of china!  Anything pink or purple always catches my eye and I love to mix and match them for a unique tablescape.

Today I am sharing with you a Royal Doulton Richelieu plate from England.  The pattern is H4957. What makes this piece so special are the hand painted daisies with a soft lavender background.  I also love the elegant gold scrolls and leaves.

It has such a pretty backstamp.

I've paired it with a vintage lusterware teacup and saucer from Japan.  Another wonderful find with a footed base!

The kettle is on and I will be sipping an enchanted white rose blend.

I always look forward to tea time and trying different teas, but somehow I tend to keep going back to my favorite white rose.    

Perfect for a spot of tea on a cold day.

With all the snow we have received I find myself dreaming about springtime.

Thank you for enjoying a cuppa tea with me  :-)

This week I will be joining ...

Valentine's Day Palace

Hello my friends,

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  Before the game gets underway, I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you using some Memory Box supplies.  I wanted to create a subtle background using the Adornment stencil.  A piece of Very Vanilla paper was cut to size; I placed the stencil over it and spritzed the background using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold - Ooh La La, how pretty!  It's extremely difficult to see in the photo, but the pattern is there.

Next, I cut and assembled the Palace Oval Frame and popped it up off the background.  A precious heart was cut from Pink Pirouette paper.  Of course, I had to add some Star Dust Stickles to it.  A silver rhinestone accents the bow.  The word love was cut using an Elizabeth Craft Designs die.  I like how it fits perfectly in the frame.

Happy Valentine's Day was stamped and embossed using Close to Cocoa ink.  The little heart was filled with Cotton Candy Stickles.  I thought it needed something else so I added a musical note.

Enjoy the game tonight.  I really don't care which team wins.  Do you have a favorite?  We are going to a friend's house who always puts on a spread.

They are predicting more snow this evening.  Here's hoping the drive to work in the morning won't be too bad.
