The Giveaway I won from Wanda for Tea Tuesday

Hello everyone! I've had a VERY busy past few days; last week Thursday & Friday, I had a garage sale here at my house, Saturday had to take my son to a Special Teams practice for Football that morning, and I packed up what didn't sell and what I will be donating to Goodwill; Sunday was the Nascar race, which was here in Michigan, so of course, HAD to watch it :) Today, I was digging up a bunch of Peony Plants over at the neighbors house, who is selling his place, and so hubby paid him $20 for ALL the plants, but we had to dig them up. I also planted most of all them today over by our side deck, so hopefully next Spring we'll have lots of pretty flowers! I am sooooo ready for a long nap, lol :)

For this weeks Tea post, I wanted to share with you a Giveaway that I won from Wanda at Victorian1885 She was giving away 2 teacups and some lovely vintage linens. I was the lucky winner of one of those pretty Teacups! But first, let me show you some of the other sweet things she included in the package. I was so surprised to see all these wonderful and thoughtful things she included.....THANK YOU Wanda for including these; it was so thoughtful and generous of you :) You are such a sweetheart!!

Below is a picture of the box opened up...



First, is this sweet Victorian-style postcard...looks like they are telling secrets to each other :)



Next, were these 5 lovely vintage hankies...love these!!



A bag filled with pretty vintage buttons and pretty lace...these will be perfect to use in future projects......and a silver teapot bookmark...how adorable is that!!



A card with a sweet hand-written note from Wanda :)



And the giveaway Teacup & saucer! It has such lovely roses and gold trim on it, and it is from Japan. A very lovely cup to add to my little collection :) Thank you again Wanda!



Below is a list of the Tea Parties that I am participating in this week:

Hello Brenda- Everything is so pretty. I love the gold flecks on the rim of your teacup. It looks almost like flecks longing to be lace (I hope that's not a bit to hallmark of me to say?). Anyway, it is lovely, congratulations and take care.
