100th Post Giveaway And New Teacup

I'm so excited and just want you all to come by and enter the giveaway!
and all the information as well as pictures of the objects in the Giveaway will be there.
Be sure and leave any comments for entering at the Pearls and Lace Thursday Post, not this one.

Take the button above and add it with the link to the sidebar of your blog for extra chances to win!

Here's a picture of all of the items that are included in the Giveaway.  Only the dried hydrangeas and the background cloth are not included.

NOW for the Teacup!
I've been looking high and low for cups and saucers.  It seems to me that finding them is a hard thing to do!
Unless I go to ebay (which by the way did you know that sellers can stop an auction just because they don't like what the winning bids will end up being?? I NEVER thought ebay would allow that! Seems they do!  Is it just me or does that just sound like a scam??)
or etsy, I can't find many at all.
BUT, I went to a number of sales the past month and this is one of the sweet cups I found.

This sweet cup and saucer were just sitting there in the hot sun, waiting for ME to come and save them from...well, just to come and buy them!  I asked if there were any more available and the nice ladies said, no, no others.  So this is the cup and saucer that found a home with me.  They are in perfect condition and I'm delighted with the cobalt blue edgings and gold designs that make this set so elegant.

I also fell in love with this doily (ebay) and want to try to make one of my own.  I've been crocheting a lot lately, and have a new love!  From only crocheting afghans previously, I found out that I love making doilies!  More of those later!

Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday, and please be sure and join me for the parties below.
Also, Don't forget to enter my 100th Post Giveaway!!!

May each of you have a marvelous week!
Blessings, Doni

Oh, I entered that giveaway already...I think :) :) :) Your teacup and saucer are lovely!!!! Yes, I do believe no one bought them, because that set was meant to go to YOUR home :) :) :)

Oh, I didn't know the seller could stop an auction like that...Hmm...well, if that's the case, they just set a firm price and be done with it...that's my feeling. I was looking at a craft book online and the seller has the option to "buy it now"...which I'm not sure if that means the price is firm or not. However, I'm going to wait and see what I can find at yard sales. ) :) :) The thrill of the hunt is more fun anyway!!!

Thanks for letting me stop by for tea. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Love your teacup and a very nice teacup too for a giveaway. Thank you for sharing. Have a nice tea cup day.

Johanna said...

your giveaway is so nice but I understand totally why it's open only for US or Canada. This is a heavy weight and you had to pay a lot for sending it. I have choosen for my give away some nice pendants, which I can send all over the world. If you want to have a look, come to my teatime and look at the sidebar.
Your teacup is lovely. And I love your crochet doilie. The pastel colors are great.
Greetings, Johanna @ silber-rosen.blogspot.com

Hi Doni
It sounds like you were meant to have this cup and saucer and it's a pretty one too.
The doily is sweet and it will be nice to see the ones you craft.

Terri said...

This is a lovely cup, with the bold blue and the design. What a great find!
Thank you so much for showing it to us.

KathyB. said...

Cobalt blue anything gets my eye and I would have bought this cup and saucer too.Very nice. I have noticed a shortage of cups and saucers at most of the thrift stores around here, guess I'd better be checking out the garage sales~

Wanda Lee said...

Hello there Doni,

This is all just so lovely, as always!.., I love the blue cup and saucer especially.

Although I try so hard, (and also each week these days, 'I say to myself', that I will be earlier by far, in getting by to visit and see your lovely tea party posts and extend a warm invitation also for next week's tea's)!..,


Here I am once again, 'on the cusp' of a brand new week, just now finding the much coveted time to visit you, my dear tea party participant and dear blog friend, yet once again, much later than I would like.

It has been an exceptionally busy season, yet I thank you ever so much for joining me for my, 'Tuesday Tea For Two', and shared, 'Tea Pot And Tea Things Tuesday', corner of, 'Tuesday And Wednesday Tea Time In Blogland'!..,

It is always such a pleasure having you join us!

This week coming marks my 52nd and 25th such tea parties respectively; hope to see you oncer again then!

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee
