Valentine Tea Cup Swap ~ Royal Chelsea

Today I am sharing a tea cup that I sent to my MAMA partnern Wendy of Bliss Angels for the Beaded Spoon and Teacup swap.
I absolutely love this cup, Royal Chelsea, the petite pink roses are just perfect for Valentines and they remind me of some fabric my grandmother used to make nightgowns out of when I was a child. 
I love the simple gold trim, gives it just a bit more sophistication.   
I loved the cup so much I asked the seller if she had another one, alas she didn't.  But she promised to keep an eye out for me. 
The second part of the swap was to make a beaded spoon.  What's a beaded spoon you ask, well first off they are addictive, I've ordered a bunch of spoons and beads since I put this one together and secondly they are exactly what they sound like.  You just wire beads and charms onto your spoon.
I had some amazing hears shaped green and pink beads in my stash and just added some fresh water pearls and some other matching glass beads.
I painted all my charms silver to match the spoon, which I left tarnished because I thought it gave it a bit of an artistic look.  I hope my partner didn't mind. 
Before I mailed off this cup I filled it with goodies.
And added some Passion Tea and Chocolates.
Wendy of Bliss Angels was my partner and she outdid herself. 
You can see what she sent me HERE, yep that means another cut!
