Pink Chintz Teacup I Won!!!

OH, my, what a blessing this is for me!

I've been in a really foul mood such a funk with our long snowy winter.

And along came a sweetheart of a tea cup lover
 who announced I won her giveaway for
this GORGEOUS Gracie china teacup & saucer set!

Isn't it precious?!?

 It positively LOOKS like SPRING to me!

It has that vintage tablecloth vibe to it, too.

I absolutely adore this cup!

The angel who sent this to me is Carrie -
from Teatime Journeys blog.

If you haven't had the chance to visit her,
please do - you will be very glad you did!

She loves All Things Tea.
(So she's a lot like you and me!)

Inside my package was this beautiful tea card
 with a teabag tucked into it in the front
(which I haven't tried yet it just looks too good in the card!)

And another envelope of tea was inside -
 which I am ashamed to say I already drank and have no pics!

I heated up my kettle immediately and I used my pretty teacup
 literally ten minutes after I received it!

I really thought I'd remember the kind of tea it was
to tell you all about it
(bonks herself on forehead.)

It was great tea, though and a wonderful win.

You have managed to make spring flowers
seem not so very far off now.

And you've brought me such joy,
 and for that I am humbly and truly appreciative. 

I hope each of you has a special few moments
to oneself today....perhaps sitting and finding some
peace & quiet
tucked in a favorite corner sipping a nice hot cuppa....

Happy tea time and happy pink and happy day
to each and every one of you today!


As always, thank you for your visit!

  17. I'm so glad you like it in person Michele! Thanks for linking back to me--I definitely saw an uptake in views this weekend :)

  18. Congratulations Michele. How wonderful. That tea cup is so cheery and beautiful. I can see how it reminds you of spring.

    I have been feeling the same too. Winter has been too long and frigid this year. Boy spring has never been more wished for in my heart.

    Have a wonderful week.


  19. What a beautiful tea cup and saucer..and it sounds like it came at the perfect time. How wonderful! I hope your winter subsides soon.

  20. I just love tea cups and this one is fab, it's so springlike and fresh, enjoy!x

  21. That is such a pretty teacup, Michelle. I agree with you, it both looks like spring and has that vintage look and I love old tablecloths. I would also have used it immediately. A gift like that demands stopping to have some tea and contemplating the beauty and thoughtfulness of the gift!

  22. Yes it is a beautiful tea cup and you are a lucky girl. I too thought of vintage tablecloths when I first looked at it. LOVELY.

  23. How wonderful you won! Fabulous! A lovely gift. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

You will enjoy many lovely tea times using this pretty teacup, I'm sure. Thank you for sharing with us and joining me for tea.
    Like you, I am more than ready to see the snow go and the posies pop up.


  26. Oh my, your new teacup is just gorgeous! Reminds me of Cath Kidston's designs in the UK. Congrats on winning, which is no doubt deserved -- I know what a giving heart you have!
