Lovely Lady in Blue Pillow now on Ebay

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to show you the newest pillow I created that is now available for bid or purchase on Ebay.....I just love the Image of this lovely lady dressed in soft pretty blue, with her gorgeous hat with pink roses! I am just so pleased as to how this pillow turned out, and hope that you are too :) Hmmmmm, I may have to make one similar to this to have in my sewing room, as these are the colors that it is decorated in.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!! Warmest hugs, Brenda

Where I display my Teacups

Hi Everyone! I didn't get a chance to set up a vignette as I usually do for Tea time here in blogland, so for this week I snapped some photos of areas in my home where I display my little teacup collection.

This vintage cabinet is where the bulk of my little collection is you can see some of my favorite rosey cups.... go ahead and click on any photo to enlarge it so you can see things much better :)

This is where I display my pretty Bavarian cup, on the fireplace mantle that is in our living room....

a couple of my cups are hung on this sweet wall hanger display in the kitchen...

I have 2 cups in my collection that are done in blue with pink roses, so these get displayed in my sewing room, which is done in the colors of blue and pink....this one resides in this sweet vintage wall cabinet...

And this one is displayed up on this charming shelf...

I also wanted to show you some great things I found at 2 of my local Goodwill stores....below is a 3 piece Silver-plated Tea set, plus another silver covered sugar....I'm trying to decide if I want to paint the 3 piece set or leave as is...what do you think?

Love this sweet scrolly white metal basket, and the real-looking rose bouquet....Gosh I LOVE Goodwill!!

And lastly, I wanted to show you this pillow that I created today, and is now available on Ebay :)

UPDATE: This pillow is now SOLD

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you have enjoyed your visit with me :)

Creating Vintage Charm's Launch Party!!

Hello everyone, today I am joining Sonia at Creating Vintage Charm for her "Creating Vintage Charm" Launch Party, for her brand new magazine that is now available for purchase...just click HERE to take you to her blog.

Creating Vintage Charm for me, is creating a romantic, vintage style feel in my home. I love taking vintage items, whether it be a piece of furniture, dishes, fabrics, shelves, etc... and fixing and painting them up, or sewing items into some of the pillows that I offer up on Ebay or use in my home.

Below are some photos that I have taken of my most favorite room, my dining room, that I have filled with lots of wonderful vintage items...

And here are a couple of photos taken of our bathroom...even in the bathroom you can display pretty vintage china pieces to help give it that soft romantic vintage charm.

Don't have a fireplace in your home? No problem...just place a vintage fireplace surround against the wall and cover the opening with some lovely vintage lace or fabric, and top it off with either an overmantle, which I have done, or a beautiful vintage mirror, and tah dah :)

You can even create a romantic vintage feel on your porch or deck simply by bringing out some of your vintage items to decorate with, as I have done on my porch....some of you may remember this photo that I took for a past Teacup Tuesday post :)

And don't forget to make your guests feel welcome by creating a wonderful vintage feel in your I have a beautiful vintage Victorian bed, which I painted a Linen White; dressed it with lovely soft bedding, vintage rose pillows, and Vintage tray.

Now, here's my cat Max, who just happens to be 8 years old today, so, I guess you could say he is vintage, as they do say that for every cat year it equals 7 human years, so, you do the math, LOL :) Happy Birthday Max!!!

Thank you for stopping by :) Please be sure to click on the Link on my sidebar to take you to the other lovely blogs that are participating in this fabulous Vintage Cottage Charm Party!

Tea Time with the Bears

Hello everyone, I'm feeling a bit under the weather tonight, but wanted to get my Tea post up, so I won't be visiting with you all tonight, but will be back tomorrow (Tuesday) morning to come visit your tea parties :)

Now, if you've visited my past Tea posts, then you know that I have done a few with some of my sweet little bears...well, they have decided they wanted to get together and have themselves a little tea party of their own...

Each one was given her own sweet little vintage pink rose plate...

and each was to sit in front of a chair on top of the table, as they are much to small to actually SIT in a chair...if they did, then no one would see them!...

they each had their own little pink handled fork, and a pink napkin....

and a sweet vintage rose print tablecloth to set the stage...

Now, there were a few things they INSISTED on having....they had to use the pink Tea pot, and the creamer & sugar that matches the plates...

some sparkly crystal candleholders with pink candles....

and each had to have a DIFFERENT little demitasse cup.....can you say DIVAS!!

these 4 sweet little vintage cups are from Germany..

And they insisted on have pretty rose decorated cakes.....but shhhhhhh...don't tell them that these are Faux cake slices, otherwise living with them will be....well, you know what!! HA!

I hope you have enjoyed my post this week for Tea :) Below is a list of the Tea parties that I will be participating in again this week....please be sure to stop on over and say hello.

A couple of Mags ~ A Goodwill Find ~ & Go Tigers Go!!

Hi Everyone :) Hope you all have had a great weekend. Me? I've had a nice restful one, which I sooo needed :)

This is a little hodge-podge post; some different things I wanted to share with you...first, are these 2 FABULOUS Magazines, which some of you may already have. I bought the Country Victorian Magazine a few days ago, and had been enjoying it, and then on Friday, I recieved my subscription copy of Romantic Country, and I must say, I have been having a VERY hard time putting it down!

These next 4 photos are a little peek into what's inside these gorgeous magazines....I'll just let the pictures do the talking.....feel free to click on any of the pictures to enlarge them :)

Friday, I went to my local Goodwill store and came upon this sweet creamer....I already had the covered sugar, and also some other pieces to this set, so I was beyond thrilled and excited to find this!

And lastly, here is the lasted on our Grant son's JV Team blew out Fremont 21-0!! And then Friday night our Varsity Guys beat them 14-7, Woo Hoo!! We are now 4-0 in The Lakes Eight Converence. This coming week will be tough games for both Tiger teams as they will be playing Orchard View, which is a much tougher team....but as long as our guys go into the games with a positive and strong attitude, they may just come out on top!

I'll see you all again for the Tea Parties on Tuesday!!

Teapots & Teacups & Tea Things...Oh My!

Hello and welcome once again to another Tea Tuesday here in Blogland....Below is my vignette that I have set up for this week's Tea Post.

And this is my featured cup for this week....isn't it just lovely! This is another of the new cups that I recently purchased on Ebay, and when I first saw it, and saw the sweet & soft pink roses, I just knew I had to have one for my little collection.

Here is a close-up of the stamp on the bottom of the reads: Thomas Sevres Bavaria. On the bottom of the saucer it simply is stamped "Bavaria".

The pretty saucer...

I've chosen my pretty little vintage green teapot with the sweet pink florals, and, yes ladies, a REAL chocolate chip muffin!! Yummy! And such hard work to make these muffins too....I had to open up the pouch and put the contents into a bowl, then add a half of a cup of milk, then, OMG, I HAD TO MIX IT BY HAND!! Oh the agony, LOL!! Then I had to put the mixture into muffin cups to bake them, and when they were done, I had to take them out of a really hot oven...see how difficult this was for me :) But I did this all for my sweet bloggie friends :) Now pick yourself up from off the floor from laughing so hard, 'cuz I still have the rest of the vignette to show you!!

Here you will see a pretty pink porcelain rose, and a vintage candlestick with some sparkly crystals... Have you composed yourselves yet?

A sweet little pink and white toned pitcher with some pretty pink faux roses..

And check out this book I just got in the mail today...I purchased it on Ebay, and it's by Victoria..At Home with Roses. I've done a quick perusal of it, but will sit down later to have a really good look thru it..

And here is the pretty vintage tray that everything is placed upon. I purchased it at Goodwill a couple of years ago and had painted it white, but just today I decided to paint it pink, and I placed a piece of the wallpaper that is in our living room on top... I really like how it looks...what do you think?

Once again this week I am participating with these Tea Parties and their lovely sure to stop by and say hello, and to visit all the other blogs who are participating :)
