A month ago I decided to take part in the Easter Tea Cup Swap that Terri and Martha hosted. I read on Terri's blog about this wonderful idea and thought it's going to be FUN to send a tea cup to somebody around the world  not knowing him or  her at allI also loved the thought that tea cups would travel around  as the most precious things  thoroughly wrapped  ...
and they did , indeed.

Last week my Easter basket came from USA, from Terri.
Yes, the sweet, kind Terri from Artful Affirmation was my tea cup swap partner. There had been a number of e-mails between us with questions and answers until it become clear to me that I needed to create Terri's basket as I created it for myself . We both simply share the same taste, love and adoration for delicate tea cups, vintage items and Paris.

Last week, I received and opened the most CHARMING VINTAGE BASKET I've ever had .

May I know what comes to your mind when you hear VINTAGE Easter tea cup basket.?

If you think of a delicate very spring-ish  English tea cup with the most  lovely pink roses pattern,
you are  right.  

This gorgeous Royal Grafton bone china was in the basket that Terri created for me .

I totally understand what she means by " I love this tea cup so much I wanted to keep it ! But of course, I knew it was for you "  Thank you Terri, I will treasure it as you would  !

It you, dear reader, think that there is no vintage basket without a vintage bottle,
you are right. 

 What about old  laces, buttons, an old key?
 That's correct, they were in the basket as well.


I am wondering what one can open with this key !?

Since I mentioned to Terri about my current intrigue: everything in theme vintage PARIS, she was so thoughtful and generous to send me this napkin and these handmade cards. 

  I simply can't find the proper words to express my genuine excitement when I unwrapped  
 these Vintage French Postcards.  


Honestly, my heart is still pounding with thrill ... As you probably guess, I immediately asked her a bunch of questions and it turned out that these cards came from Paris. She picked up a number of them on her trip last year, so she of course doesn't  know the women in the photos, but she thought I might like them .
You were wrong Terri,  I LOVE them!  

Don't you wish to know who was this beautiful young women, who she loved, what she was dreaming of ....O , silly me

Thank you, Terri! It was a real pleasure creating your  Easter Tea Cup basket ! 

People don't necessarily need  to physically meet each other to create connections; as long as they share thoughts, soul, spirit  and hearts, they  feel close,  don't they ?

I wish you all HAPPINESS !
Thank you for the visit !
