Birthday Tea Cup!


I have teased and hinted about sharing my amazing birthday tea party my sweet friend Mary hosted for me almost two weeks ago....and need to get on that soon.......I promise!


~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
But I DID want to share her wonderful birthday gift to me!
 
 
 



 
 
Look at this lovely vintage Japanese birthday tea cup!
 
 
Isn't it gorgeous and amazingly FESTIVE?!?
 
 
 
 
 

 
 









She also tied on a lovely rose gold demitasse spoon
and wrapped it with these precious lacey vintage gloves.
She even put in that sweet pink satin rose!
 
She does everything like that- always full of detail and beauty.


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
I also wanted to share that my baby girl turned 30 today.
 
 
Happy birthday, darling daughter!

Also giving a big shout-out to my tea-sista-friend Suzette
 whose birthday is tomorrow!


~~~~~~~~~~~


 
Here is one of my very favorite pics of me with my two beautiful girls.
It's a few years old, but still one of our best ever together.
 
That silly dreamy face I am making is simply Mommy Love Bliss.
Katie was visiting from Cali for a wedding her sister (standing) was in
and it was pure joy for me all of us being together that weekend!
 

 
 
   (Sorry so grainy - taken before having a decent camera & photoshop!)
 

The birthday girl is on the left.
She's my tomboy....but this is one of those rare times
seeing her in a girlie-girl pink dress with ruffles!

  10. Michele, your friend was very thoughtful with her gift of teacup, which is unique, the spoon and gloves.
    The photo looks like 3 sisters, not a mother and daughters...put on that dreamy face again with this fact, you deserve it.
    Hugs,

  11. I love the details in your birthday gifts! Some people really know how to make a gift even more personal and special by adding their own touch.

  26. Michele, where did your mother get that teacup? My mother got the EXACT same on when she was a little girl from her grandmother and I broke it when I was younger. It was very special to her and I have been trying to replace it for years! Please let me know :)
