I Won!!!

On Monday I arrived home and had a surprise package from Jan & Tom at Rose Haven. I had won a gorgeous teacup and saucer in their giveaway and I was so thrilled. Believe me, the pictures can't even capture it's beauty. I am just so excited with it! Thank you so much, Jan and Tom. You made my day!!!

I have a small collection of teacups and saucers that belonged to my Grandmothers, so I will happily add this new teacup and saucer to the collection. I love hot tea, so it will be fun to drink out of it too. I will feel like a queen!
I stood the cup and saucer up, so you could see the beautiful flowers. I just love all the detail. You can't tell from the picture, but the edges of the cup and saucer have little indentions in them that are so pretty. Don't you just love the gold detail on the edge, as well? The pattern is called Primrose Dell and is Royal Stafford China that is made in England. I love it so much!!!

The tag is beautiful too and has been handmade. I don't know if you can read it or not, but it says, "laugh out loud". I am a happy and joyful person, so that suited me to a tea. Pardon the pun!

Isn't it fun to enter giveaways on other blogs? You never know when you might win something. My birthday was March 15th, so this was a belated birthday present to me. Please pay Jan and Tom a visit on their blog. It is so lovely. Thanks again for my gift!!!
