Spending My Birthday Gift Money

Each summer my dear MIL is very generous and remembers my birthday by including some spending money in with a specially hand picked greeting card. She also reminds me every time that I am to spend the money on 'myself' - No problem for me. I take my time choosing the perfect item, something that I will remember that it is specifically from her. I have so much fun shopping for just the perfect gift.
This year I chose the white pumpkin tea pot. I bought the cream and sugar last year. My friends and I are planning on having a harvest tea and will use them then, in the meantime, they will sit and be admired until it is time to bring out the Christmas decor.

I also bought a set of cast iron and glass candle holders with beautiful birds on them. I will post them another time.

If you would like to know where you can get the White Pumpkin Tea Set you can email June @ Scarlett Rose.
She has a wonderful on-line shop and is a sweetheart to her customers. She even included a lovely set of Victorian stamps that I will be able to use in my artwork (if I can part with them).
Thank you June.
And Thank You, Mom.

I am linking up to Kathleen's White Wednesday, it is really worth your while to check out and see what everyone else is up to.
