Vintage Vavoom and Romantic Homes

I am so happy to have the chance to donate a little basket of goodies to the Vintage Vavoom Tea Event at Paris in a Cup in Orange California on May 17th, 2008. Here is a link to read all about the event, Vintage Vavoom . I've included some little pictures below, and am so excited Make Mine Pink gave us this opportunity. Vintage Vavoom is a book published by Romantic Homes, one of my favorite magazines. I hope all you California girls get to attend the tea. What a fun time. Also, I would like to give an Honorable Mention to Desi of Romantic Homes who patiently answered all my questions. Thank you Desi, and I have included a little something in the package just for you. Here are the pictures of the basket and its contents:

Here's the basket, and next to it the lovely Hammersley Victorian Violets Demitasse

And then we have the tags (gotta have tags). My own branded Cottage Violet's s Tags and the cute little Violet Stall Girls tags. Both have plenty of room on the back for sentiments.

And one must have a napkin (very vintage,very chic). As a little taste of my hometown I added a bag of Dewar's Peanut Butter Chews, a local favorite and the yummiest. Last, but not least, I added a silver spoon. We were not all born with silver spoons in our mouths, but everybody ought to possess one.... Once again thanks, Romantic Homes Magazine and Make MIne Pink for giving me this opportunity. Regards, Theresa
