Pink Roses Madonna & Teacup

I found some really pretty things thrifting recently
 and thought I would put them together
 for a pretty pink vignette to share.

However, the wonderful heart button ornament
 was a recent gift from my dear friend Marina
 - a precious tea society sister.

The pearls are a present from my paternal Grandfather
that I have treasured all my life.

I can't believe someone would let this simple
white and unbelievably beautiful Madonna go!

I like the teacup because it's girlie and pretty, but not
a precious antique - so can be used often
 and even put in the dishwasher!

As always, thank you for visiting!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!




  1. Hi my cute cute friend!!! I absolutely LOVE your little tea vignette. I am SO jealous of your finds. You have good stuff back there. The stuff out here is so picked over or The good stuff picked off as soon as it is put out at the thrift stores and what leftover is so picked over. Your plates and madonna are beautiful. And that teacup and saucer!!! Oh girlfriend...WOW I love it.What a wonderuful friend you have!! And those pearls from your grand dad just touched me. How very special that is!!!

  18. Such pretty finds. No wonder I don't find anything anymore - you're always there before me :)
    Love the button ornament. Very pretty and such a sweet gift.

  19. Michele, I love your pretty pink vignette. The Madonna is so lovely, I had one similar I made in ceramics in a cream color and sadly I let it go. I'd buy it back in a heart beat! Beautiful post. Visiting from Seasonal Sundays. xo

  20. I *love* that your pearls came from your grandfather, and as a crafter my eye went straight to that button ornament! Combined with the pretty teacup, this is some terrific eye candy!


Thank you, friend, for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them. Your thoughts are appreciated!
