Birthday Bunch

Hi!  It's Wednesday evening, April 8, 2020.  My work day is over, so I get to share some things with you now. 😊

I had this post mostly prepared, but then I threw in some silver baby cup pics at the end.

Here are the birthday cards that I made within the last several months, and are/were at Arts Plus Gallery shop for sale.  They are open by appointment these days, if you interested in a visit there.

Stampin' Up! Bella Toile background stamp, floral and striped patterned paper scraps, Hip Hip Hooray card kit sentiment stamp; vintage thread; embossed gold scrap from a store-bought card

I mentioned in a post very early today that I had been polishing some silver baby cups.  And some of you have also been polishing silver, as well!  I took some quick pictures today with my iPhone to show you.


My daughter's monogram (and my fingers in the reflection 😆)

One of my faves, a tin cup that says 'Baby'

'E.M.' - such beautiful cursive initials

The other side of the 'E.M.' cup.  Isn't that an exquisitely detailed image??

My husband's cup on the right and the one that started my interest in collecting these is on the left.  It's a Wallace cup, and the silver has all but worn off over the years, showing copper beneath.

Hope your day was a good one, and I so appreciate your visits!
God bless you!

Oh, goodness, when you said "baby cups" I imagined they were just your own family. What a lovely thing to collect. A beautiful batch of cards in this post, Colleen. You blow me away with how many you have. I especially love the wreaths with birds.

The cards are lovely, Colleen. They've all stunning, but I have to say that first one I especially like. The 3d effect of the butterfly makes it look as if it's ready to fly off the paper! Love, too, that little bit of lace and how your sentiment and enamel dots pick up the butterfly blue.

The baby cups look wonderful! My husband polished his decorative silver wine cups so I was spared that task. I can't remember the last time they were polished, but I know it's been several years. They look completely different all nice and shiney!

Take care of you all, and a Happy Easter!
