Tea time nevertheless...

 I am in love with my tea cup!  And how did she know that I collect pink depression glass and that pink is my all time favorite color?  Thank you, Christy, for the lovely tea package you sent me!  
 I had to take a picture of everything Christy included in my tea box--homemade scones, a pretty pink votive candle, a box of orange spice tea, a bag of chocolates, lovely book on friendship and of course, the beautiful tea cup.  And with it all came a very special handmade card!  I felt so special!

This was my first time participating in Stephanie's tea cup exchange here and I know it won't be my last!  Thank you Stephanie for hosting this delightful event.

Also the package came at a most needed time as my husband and I had just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico where we visited our daughter and her husband.  Mary had minor surgery and we had gone to support her.  On our return from 78 degree weather and bliss, we came home to 5-6 inches of snow and no water!  Yuck!  But to my surprise there was a package on my doorstep. What a delight it was to open my tea box and savor the contents....that is until I had to go outside and help my husband and daughters pull out 265 feet of well pipe!  

Sorry this is not a pretty picture and is actually the day after we arrived home and some of the snow had melted, thankfully.  But God is good and Hart was able to fix the pipe and by Sunday evening we had running water again.  I am truly thankful for running water and flushing toilets!


  1. Hi Nancy! So nice to visit your blog which I did not realize you had one :) It was such a pleasure having you join the exchange and I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed it.

    Your tea cup from Christy is quite beautiful and I can see why you're in love with it. And look at the sweet goodies she sent you, wow! Everything is lovely :)

    Enjoy the remainder of your week! Hugs and blessings/

  2. Hi Nancy! I love your teacup, I would have never even thought of depression glass. And you collect it? Stephanie really knows how to connect us, doesn't she. And hurrah for flushing toilets! Your husband is a very handy guy. You are a lucky woman.


  3. Hi Nancy! I'm so happy you loved your tea cup. I had NO idea you collected pink depression glass when I purchased it. What a perfect match. I'm glad it was given a home where it will be loved and cherished. This was my first tea cup exchange too and now I have 2 new tea time friends.

  8. Hi Nancy, That's a beautiful tea cup. I've never seen one in pink before, although my collected green depression glass and my sister collects as well. I bet those scones were delicious.

    I've been perusing your blog and see we have a few things in common. We live in NC and home school, and our youngest is graduating in May. Take care and enjoy the lovely spring days that I know are coming soon :)

  9. Wow! I definitely have not seen a teacup like this before. So unique. And scones too! What a fabulous welcome home present. :-)
