Creating Vintage Charm Launch Party

A huge congratulations to Sonia over at Creating Vintage Charm on the launch of her new magazine, Creating Vintage Charm.  I’m fortunate enough to have contributed to the magazine, and I can’t wait to see it!

Today we’re celebrating the launch of the magazine, with the party,

Show Your Vintage Charm

I’m going to share with you today a little collection I’ve started of beautiful antique Victorian cups {with one moustache cup in there}

I don’t know a lot about them, except that they are German/Bavarian

And that I love the beautiful textures on each one

and the lovely sentiments.

The one above has rubbed off over time.  I wonder what it said?

I also hear they’re souvenir mugs too – they’re getting harder to find as they become more popular.

I’m so glad I have my three!

They add prettiness and vintage charm to the area they’re placed in.

Gorgeous on their own, or with simple cut flowers from the garden!

Thanks for hosting the party today Sonia!

  25. They are lovely; I collect the ones with "sayings" on them too, so I'm especially fond of the pink "Love the Giver" one on the right.
