My Favorite Teacup and More

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. We are having a wild wet and windy day here, so March is definitely coming in like a lion, so out like a lamb!
Yesterday,I went out to check the bare parts of the garden to see any signs of life, and there are some daffodils poking through the ground and some daylillies with new growth, so spring is on it's way!!! This is really early for us here on the Island so it is especially exciting.
Today, I am joining in Mira's action giveaway on her beautiful blog Belle Blanc. To enter you show a photo of your favorite teacup and then she picks a winner.
Now, I did say I wouldn't show anymore teapots for awhile but I didn't say anything about teacups!!!
So here are a few photos of my favorite teacup. It is a thrift find, and I love it's soft peachy color.
So that is my favorite teacup!
But these beauties are the runner ups-they didn't win the gold, but I am giving them a spot on the podium!
Now for those of you who saw my teacups before,I am sharing a few photos of my Black Pearl amaryllis. This shot also gives a hint on the' project'. The wallpaper is gone and the walls have been painted but more on that later. I did buy this new chair at HomeSense lately but I am on the lookout for a similar one to go with it.
Now back to Black Pearl-it is really a darker ,richer color in real life but it is a beauty.
I bought the bulb in the Fall at " Vesey's Seeds " blowout sale for $2.
It has another stalk of flowers on the way up.
There it is again with a new birdhouse that also came from HomeSense.
Well, that is it for today and I am taking a couple of days to get some work done and then I will be back.
Thank you for visiting me,
Have a good day !

Pink Saturday

Welcome to my Pink Saturday . I know you thought I was done with the teapots but I had to save one of my favorites for Pink Saturday.

Doesn't it look pretty with carnations and roses.

I also love the matching heart shaped plate.

carnation and baby's breath

Lots of pinks here!

I hope you are enjoying Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.

Next week I will show you what I have been working on the past couple of weeks so no teapots I promise!

We are getting some wet and windy weather with a mix of rain and snow this weekend .

Thank you for visiting

More Teapots

Hello everyone,
Didn't I tell you that I love teapots? I hope you are not bored with my teapot theme -next week.I promise I will have moved on to something else! We are still working on our 'project' and I am happy to say that the wallpaper is all removed and the walls have been painted so progress at last!
Even though I collect red and white transferware I do have a collection of blue and white also and I love this tea set.
a small teapot with it's own cup under it.
yard sale find
Some of you might remember this one-from Reid House Antiques.
old teapot from yard sale for $1.
Another gift from my husband.
This one is for my English afternoon teas!
I can't resist chintz-can you?
This teapot came from TJMAX. The mother and baby ornament was a gift from my husband also several years ago after the birth of one of our children so it is very special to me!
Actually, the beautiful mother and child plate was another gift from Andrew after the birth of one of our daughters-isn't he good to me!
And finally a teapot for our grandchildren's tea parties.
Wow! Congratulations to Heather Moyse from little Prince Edward Island and her partner Kaillie Humphries who just won the gold medal in bobsleighing at the Olympics!!!
Thank you for visiting ,

Creamy Whites

I am glad you stopped by to see my creamy white teapots. I have a lot of photos so I will not bore you with words too. Just enjoy a few moments of peaceful tranquillity
I hope that was a pleasant interlude in your day!
Take care,
