She even picked a card to accompany her gift that is so me!
The beautiful Tibetan Buddha of Infinite Light.

Thank you so very much, Terri.

to think warmly, and to feel close."

Snap,

You sure are one lucky lady! Congrats on winning a stunning teacup & saucer. I recognize it as being a Paragon. I love the pastel shade of blue. Enjoy it my friend and thanks for having tea with me.

What a beautiful cup and saucer! Makes me want to sit down with a friendly cuppa. (And I'm mostly an iced tea drinker.)

Hi Snap
What a pretty teacup you won and the card is awesome too. I liked the recipe card quotes as well.
This is going to sound silly, but I miss the sock monkey you used to have in your header - I don't know, maybe my inner child identified with it but I did associate it with you. :-)

I enjoyed the quotations on your index cards. The second reminds me of all those old English movies and programs where the teapot is forever being put on to deal with the events of life! Thanks for stopping by my blog, Snap.

The Bodhi Chicklet said...

I rather like the flowers in the bottom of the cup. I always thought that was so classy, to have something left over after the contents are gone.
