My little shindig last night was a cute gathering, we did dinner and desert. A lovely array of marinated chicken wings, greek salads, garlic and parsley pasta and Turkish Apple Ice Tea! I ended the evening with a home-made pav! I would have taken photos of everything but we were so into the whole night that everything was eaten before I could even pull my lense cap off! The table was decorated with fresh roses from my garden, in little white teacups. The teacups were all over the house, each holding a different coloured rose.Although my birthday is next friday, my close friends wanted to get in early! I was so surprised with my thoughtful gifts, they made my night! I was gifted with 12 months subscription to Yarn Magazine, which is fast becoming my ultimate yarny mag from Oz! This was brilliant! Yarny reading every issue and I dont even need to walk to the newsagent! But the next present is my favourite present in a very long long time....
A stunning vintage teacup, in a soft pink colour with beautiful copper and grey roses! to top it all off, the plates are an offshaped square! It was such a pleasure to unwrap the tissue paper to reveal such a beautiful object! The teacup were put away by an lady for her glory box, over 60 years ago! but thats not all, such a stunning cup would have a twin!
That's right! I was gifted with not one but two of these stunningly beautiful teacup sets! I squeeled like a little girl when I got to the bottom of the box to reveal another set! They have become my pride and joy without a doubt!
I cant stop looking at them! they are now placed in my craft room where I can stare at them anytime I like! and I think mandy and I might have to christen them when we move to brissy! they beg to be used in a high tea setting! Scones, jam, cream and a delishious blend of tea, utterly spectacular!
And for a little bit of fun...todays colour is....

Always the beholder of two amazing teacups
