Cottage Colors Party for March "Green"



Welcome to Cottage Colors Blog Party, held the last Monday of every month. Our colors to share for the month of March is Green! So I'm puttin' on the Green for you all to enjoy. Out of the china cabinet is a beautiful hand painted Tea Cup and Saucer by Lena Liu in  her line of "Glorious Chintz". The name of this lovely set is "Exquisite" and that is a perfect description. This set was produced in 1993 and was a series of chintz. Some where along the line I didn't finish the collection and only have about 6 of the sets.  Probably wasn't one of my smarter decisions! The second is a green and white chintz creamer that I had purchased in an antique mall. Very sweet and small and was tucked tight in the china cabinet with the other treasures. Have a great week and thanks all who visit and don't forget to leave a comment on my Blogaversary post in order to have a chance of winning my giveaway and become a follower also. I won't be posting too much this week as I'm trying to get a little blogging break and rest. Love you all and I'll get back to your sweet comments at a later date.

"Prayers For Japan" A Day Of Reflection for Us All


"A Day Of Prayer for Japan" and all those affected by this horrific tragedy and all the others taking place in our universe at this time. It makes our world a smaller place, while we all can control how we chose to live our personal lives by treating others with love, respect and kindness, something like this is beyond our scope of imagination and control. So faraway so many are suffering, lives lost, families separated, there is still much more to unfold, our thoughts and prayers are sent out to you with love, whoever you are and where ever you may be, Love and Prayer is Sent Your Way, Today and Always. I was invited to link this post to Natasha at 5 Minutes For Me. Natasha has a beautiful post for Japan also.

She is pretty Hebby heavy! Do you remember when I cleaned her all up? That is on an older post a few weeks back when we were getting ready for the party! I hope you are enjoying our Party today and will come back and leave a comment so we know you were here! We are going to Party until April 1st. then we are having a Big Party Giveaway, just be a follower on Grams blogs and you could win all these goodies pictured on the first pic. We are all about Craftin' and Tea Parties at my Grams house and if you win you will even get a craft bag full of good stuff to get creative with, I have one just like it and we keep adding more stuff, if you win it you will be ready for a Tea Party and Craft day too! We love parties so today we are going to join Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage,  Lady Katherine Tea Parlor,  Martha's Favorites and Tuesday Tea for Two at The Plumed Pen. So that's it for now and all these other Tea Parties are quite a bit fancier than we are this week but I bet they will think that Me and Hebby baby are so much fun they might enjoy our party! The party Giveaway Gift is in the second pic, Me, Hebby baby and the cupcakes aren't included, we ate the cupcakes and Grams says you can't have me and I say you can't have my Hebby baby, she is "special", and Grams says I'm her Special!
