Anywho . . . I again used the Random Number Generator to select the winner of the Cottage Charm Giveaway that ended on May 29th and it chose #99 which is . . . . Wendi at Once Upon a Rose Haven! You must go over and see the fantabulous garden shed they built! I think I need to give ours a shabby makeover with some added gingerbread so it doesn't look so much like the little grey barn you see below . . .

Thanks again and I'll be back very soon!

TEACUP TUESDAY with pretty pink roses

Many thank you's go to MARTHA and sweet TERRI for hosting this weekly Tea party! Click on either of their names to be wisked off to see more pretty teacups 'n' things :-)
If you haven't seen my latest giveaway please take a sec and stop over to this post and enter to win a pretty Frances Brundage pillow and embellished bottle!
Click HERE to see!

I chose one of my favorite pink rose teacups and teapots to share today. Can you imagine having an entire teaset of either of these sweeties?

The teacup is a thin, delicate, porcelain covered in soft pink roses. I love the shape of the handle and it looks kind of like a little heart! There are dainty scallops and hints of golden wash on the edges.
The tea pot has the cutest little cottage pink rosebuds scattered all about, with more gold touches. The "shell" shape design reminds me of a Grandmothers Flower Garden Quilt design!

The pot is marked SADLER ENGLAND on the bottom as is most of my favorite teapots! The cup and saucer has a makers mark pattern that I can not figure out and is signed M.Z. Austria with a handpainted 9. I hope you enjoyed my selections this week.
I have lots of new things going to my Ebay shoppe today so please take a peek if you'd like to see!
Enjoy a terrific Teacup Tuesday!!
Hugs and Smiles,

Cottage Charm & 1 Year Anniversary Giveaway

Greetings to all on this gorgeous Spring monday! Well, March 22nd was the one year anniversary of starting my blog and the date passed by without me noticing! Naughty me :-)) I've met so many new bloggie friends and reunited with lots of "old" ebay buddies too! It is a small world in the Land of Blog HA!
Well, of course I must have another thank you giveaway and am combining it with the Cottage Charm Giveaway hosted by Kim at The Twice Remembered Cottage. Her blog is such an inspirational place to visit!

For Giveaway #13, I made you a sweet and petite lavender sachet and matching embellished bottle. Hope you likey :-) The center of attention is a darling young girl originally painted many many moons ago by the beloved artist Frances Brundage. Along with the pretty in pink girl, I used a number of other vintage graphics to create the design including an oval of pink roses, french script & soft "lace" in the background.

The sachet pillow-ette features pink rose fabrics, vintage lace, millinery roses, ribbon bow and a heart of sparkling rhinestones. It measures 9" x 10" including the ruffle and has a ribbon hanger giving you the option of displaying from a doorknob, peg, etc. if you wish! The charming frosty glass bottle is 6-1/2" high including the removable glass ball topper and is embellished with pretty blossoms, rhinestones, ribbons and a vintage rhinestone button.
