Tea Cup Party Valentine Exchange Arrived!

I opened the Box! Here is the card that reads,"I have a Simple Philosophy. Fill What's Empty. Empty What's Full. And Scratch Where it Itches" On the inside beautiful words, from a beautiful person.
Getting ready to Open the Treasures
A sweet note, on the inside, handwritten, to be treasured as anything handwritten  in these times are few and far between with all our technology. A beautiful Tea Spoon with Violets in the center, Violet tags, a beautiful Doily and .....
A Demi-Tasse Cup with Violets
The Beautiful Baby Dress and Handmade Tussie Mussie, oh and a box of divine chocolates, Umm.. they are gone, sorry!
The lovely Doily, Tea Cup and Spoon
A beautiful Vintage Baby dress that will have to go on a Special Baby for a Tea Party of course!
The Tea Cup Valentine Party Exchange arrived today and my wonderful partner and new found Friend, Sabre' Elise of Heirloom Gypsy sent the most wonderful gifts. I'm so thrilled and delighted that Sabre' was my partner. She must have researched my blog well. I love everything vintage, and victorian and I have a soft spot for Violets, as that was my Mother's name and she was a treasure. Her photo is on the left of my sidebar and she really had some history including her days in Hollywood, but that is a story for another post. I love old dolls, vintage, doilies, silver, flowers, especially Violets and Roses. Violets are much harder to come by in Tea Cups too. Thank You Sabre', my dear Friend, you are one of life's treasures. Many people pass through our life and we vaguely remember, others come into out lives and remain in our hearts forever. Sabre', you are one who will remain forever. Blessings and Thank You! Thank You for Hosting this wonderful party Faith, Hope and Cherry Tea. I'm also linking this to Terri and Martha of  Martha's Favorites  Tea Cup Party at Artful Affirmations

Goodness Marilou, She really outdid herself and her thoughtfulness and research is amazing. Aren't violets just the sweetest? I can hardly wait for their little purple heads to pop up in the grass. Won't be long now. I found some precious violet items on my treasure hunt this past Tuesday. You would love them. Have a wonderful sweet weekend. xo

Oh! What a lovely cup you´ve got there! Such a beauty! And the other itens in the package... how nice from the person who sent it to you.
And what a coincidence! You´ve just posted a tea set with violet decoration as well.
All the best and happy springtime!
