It's a hand made tea chest with pewter work on top and it was made by my friend's sister and she sells them in her shop and everybody can't get enough! I also have one and I love it and this one is even prettier than mine! I hope you like it!
I want to thank you for the wonderful, beyond words, experience I've had in my one year of blogging. All the fabulous, talented, awesome and incredible ladies and gentlemen I have met! You all have inspired me and taught me so much that now I feel I will "have blog forever", besides doing what I love to do. I also enjoy visiting you sooo much! Thank you for your kindness and generosity the past year 2011, for your visits and comments of encouragement to go on and for the tips on how to "control and manage" my blog when it gets crazy, lol! To the great friends I've met and sometimes feel you're my best friends and last but not least for all the amazing tablescapes, vignettes, recipes, decorating, re-doing- re-building, and I could go on and on describing all I've leaned and have inspired myself from your blogs, lovely and wonderful people.
Thanks to the ladies and gentlemen for the beautiful and generous giveaways I won last year and they were four too!
To the ladies that host such fabulous, fun and exciting parties I just can't wait to link to every week...I don't want to name each, as I don't want to miss anyone, plus you all know who I mean!
Thank you dear Beverly for the announcement of my first giveaway, will not be the last...right here at the terrific PINK SATURDAY PARTY!
You don't have to follow me anywhere, unless you'd like to... just make a comment letting me know you just dropped by from PINK SATURDAY at Beverly's, or directly to my post, make a comment on it, so that we can acknowledge you wish to participate on the giveaway. Thanks.
I also want to thank the hostesses that have FEATURED me on their parties, I'm forever grateful and honored. Ok, sounds like I'm getting an OSCAR, lol! All of you blog friends are better than receiving an Oscar, you're amazing!!
My love to you all and looking forward to visiting you and linking to the parties, as I've become a real PARTY ANIMAL!
Next Saturday the 14th. of January, at Pink Saturday, Beverly will announce who the winner is. Good luck to all. This is ONLY for people that share their fabulous BLOGS with me.....if you're anonymous this giveaway will not apply... sorry.
LOTS OF LOVE AND THANK YOU SO MUCH. GOD BLESS YOU.
My parent's used to tell me that when they were small, gifts used to come from the Kings on the 6th. of January, opposed to Santa delivering on Christmas Eve, or day. The custom came from Spain, as some believe that the gift giving to children came from the Kings taking gifts to Baby Jesus and little by little I guess, Latin America changed to the Christmas date we know now and Santa delivering the gifts to the kids.. Spanish children still wait to receive and exchange gifts on Three King's Day, January 6th. You will see this on the cable TV news this Friday. After Epiphany, Jan 6th. we also start to dismantle the Christmas decorations and tree.
|I placed our first Three Kings we had from our first Nativity set, the year we married, back in 1975... inside a cloche, to make this tablescape, as they're small. The Nativity set we have now is put away in storage already.|
|"They brought gifts to Baby Jesus". The crystal vase with the flowers is Czechian.|
|These elegant velvet, ornamental gift boxes were a present I got from a friend this Christmas.|
|The tablescape for tea for hubby and me, with part of my reticulated dinner set; teacups, teapot and lantern.|
Thank you in advance for all your wonderful visits and kind comments my friends.
Thanks to the lovely and gracious hostesses from the parties I will be linking to.
HAPPY KINGS DAY 2012!
