A Gift For A Dear Friend

It's The Tuesday Tea Party Day!!
I've decided to share a recent find with y'all that I'm going to be giving to a dear friend for her birthday (though belated!)
Her favorite color is blue, her spirit is sweet, and she's a Christian sister who delights in the Word of God.

The cobalt blue really stands out, but look at the outter rim!  It's the prettiest light blue color.

The interior of the cup at the center is white, but the eggshell color of the gilded trim next to the cobalt blue makes this cup very unique.  The gilding is hand done and makes the detail stand out.

There are no marks on the bottom, but with such a pretty set, who really cares??
BUT, if any of you just happen to know the pattern or maker, could you please let me know?
Thanks so much for visiting me today.
I see that I have some lovely new followers as well!  Y'all don't know how excited that makes me!
Just to know someone would come by and visit is wonderful, but to follow as well!!!
Thank you all so much.  You make blogging so much fun!  I love to think about what I'll be sharing the next time I post!
And speaking of the next time, this Thursday is Pearls and Lace Thursday....AND I'm having a GIVEAWAY!!  The hottest of the summer days is over, and Praise God, IT RAINED HERE!!!!
We actually had MUD!!!  It's been months and months, the trees are dying, fires are all around, but we have finally had a lovely rain.
In honor of the end of summer, I'd like you all to come join me on Thursday (Wednesday evening if I can get it posted sooner), and enter my Giveaway.  I am putting together some lovely pieces that I hope you will be excited about.  I will also be sharing a GORGEOUS bridal cap that I recently found...and it's made out of Pearls and Lace!  What could be more perfect?  (Actually, the DRESS would, but I don't have it!)
So...come back and check out the party this Thursday.

Now....I will be joining some wonderful Link Parties with this post.
On the sidebar of my blog I have a list of parties that I participate in.  Please go by and visit them.  I keep the list there all the time so that if you'd like, you can go by all week long and easily find the links.
Thank you to all the party hostesses who keep the fun going week after week.

Hope to see you all on Thursday!
Blessings, Doni

I love that blue tea cup and saucer. I have been taking time out each day for a cup of tea. It can be very soothing after a hectic day. Tea time is a favorite of mine.
