~ Happy New Year 2011 ~

I wish you health...

so you may enjoy each day in comfort.

I wish you the love of friends and family...

and peace within your heart.

I wish you the beauty of nature...

that you may enjoy the work of God.

I wish you wisdom to choose priorities...

for those things that really matter in life.

I wish you generosity so you may share...

all good things that come to you.

I wish you happiness and joy...

and blessings for the New Year.

I wish you the best of everything...

that you so well deserve.

Teacup Tuesday

It's Teacup Tuesday once again.
Time for all to share their pretty teacups.
There is always so much eye candy to see
when you visit those participating with Martha and Terri.
Thank you to Martha at Martha's Favorite's
and Terri at Artful Affirmations
for hosting this lovely event each week.
Today I am sharing my green Heritage Rose teacup from Lefton.
I just love the pink roses on this set and the soft minty green background.
The scallops add such feminine detail.
This is my daughter's favorite tea set of my collection.
We used it often when she was little for tea partys :)
So, it holds a special place in my heart...

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday!

Where did this school year go ?!

Happy 2nd Anniversary Pink Saturday!

Pink Saturday turns 2 this weekend! Stop by and join the celebration with all of the other lovely participants. You can find them listed on the blog of Pink Saturday's wonderful hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.

I have been participating in Pink Saturday for almost one year now (on and off) and have had the opportunity to meet some terrific blogger friends. I have been so inspired by your faith, kindness, creative spirit and strength. I so look forward to many more years of Pink Saturday. Thank you Beverly for bringing us together each Saturday to share and celebrate the beautiful, feminine, yet strong color PINK!

To celebrate this special 2nd Anniversary Pink Saturday with you,
I took out one of my favorite tea sets (with pretty pink roses) and made some hot tea ...

and baked a yummy Pink cake with lots of Pink icing just for us...

Of course the first piece goes to our dear Pink Saturday hostess Miss. Beverly!


Now, because it's a special Pink Saturday celebration, I am having a little pink giveaway.

Part of the giveaway is in one of the photos above...

No... it is not a piece of cake , silly! :)

It's the pink pedestal dish that my teapot is sitting on in the first photo.

This is a sweet metal pedestal dish that I painted pink.

Along with the dish I am giving away a pink 3" pillar candle embellished with hand painted roses

and sparkly glass glitter. Here's a photo of the giveaway...

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. This is a one day only giveaway.

You can enter until the end of

Pink Saturday May 29th( midnight).

A random winner will be drawn from entries and the

winner will be announced in a Sunday May 30th post.

Good Luck Friends! :)

Happy Pink Saturday!
