I found this lovely teacup for my daughter, Taj.

What sold me on it was the lovely flowers on the inside of the teacup.

I like that!

It is a reproduction of china from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London

but, I did not spend very much on it at all.

My first choice would be a thrift store find but, I am not familiar with

them in this area, at this point.

Now I can mail her gift…

This is so after the fact but, I thought it was so cute and worth mentioning:

Valentines matchboxes…too cute.

Will have to make next year or maybe at Christmas!

  1. The stitching is beautiful, and the cup is a wonderful find.
    I used to collect pretty bone china cups, but then decided I didn’t like clutter.
    Also, I used to knit all the time and then gave up, but now I have started to think how much I like wool for knitting. Maybe I should set up a market stall.
    Will keep looking at your posts.

      Thank you and thank you for stopping by.
      I love wool too! I have been thinking about
      picking up the crochet needle but, alas,
      there are only so many projects one can do.
      lol.

    Hi Marie. Love the embroidered text and my eye is fine now, thankyou so much for asking, Karen

  3. I like that cup, too, with the flowers hidden inside. And the matchbook idea at inchmark is wonderful. I have used little matchbooks on cards before (light my fire, the keeper of the fire, etc.), but I have never covered the boxes with paper or fabric as gift boxes. I’m going to start using that idea for special little gifts, just a note or a poem inside maybe. xo Kari

      I like that idea of a little note or poem inside the matchboxes! (they were cute!)
      I imagined holding them in my hand and then quietly walking up to someone and opening
      my hand and giving it to them. A tiny treasure. I like that!
      That cup had my favorite colors on it, especially that
      bit of soft turquoise around the top.

    Such a sweet gift. The teacup is a gem. New or recycled or found, they are always hard to resist. The little matchbooks are so special, I agree.

      The minute I saw that cup I told my other two daughters,
      “Thats the one!”. Lovely and sweet just like my daughter Taj.
      The matchbooks are fun because they could be made for
      any occassion. A sweet note left inside on a pillow, or for
      a birthday or anytime, and easy…I like quick and easy sometimes.
