Teatime Bookmark

Our daughter, Melissa, is a Work At Home Mom with a successful online beading business, MJenningsDesigns.com. She specializes in personalized items including name and birthstone items. She has been very generous with teatime themed beaded gifts for me including earrings, bracelets, key chains, phone charms, a teapot pendant and more. I posted about several of those beautiful pieces with a photo here.

The cute bookmark with the teapot bead shown above was an early birthday gift she gave me when we went to afternoon tea in Cincinnati. Thanks Melissa! I love it! She is currently participating in a give-away on her blog. Check it out here.

Miniature Tea Set

This is a Longaberger Collectors Club miniature tea set. I took this photo with my ring to show the size. I was a bit surprised while looking through Ebay a couple of weeks ago to see the bidding at $249 for a set just like this. If any of you blog readers out there wants one for that price, I will consider parting with mine! Or, maybe I should hold out for more $$. *Big smile* In my opinion, the market is what the buyer is willing to pay at the time. Apparently someone really wanted the one on Ebay!
