Last Sunday I decided to write a few letters--I do have friends who don't email -- it is fun writing letters.

In a previous post I showed some of my monogram items and here is my latest idea. I did the picture stamps on line and made a monogram postage stamp! So fun.

The little tea cup with legs has no markings. I found it in a local vintage shop. So while I wrote my letters I had tea and cookies and enjoyed sitting among my flowers. When my lavender is in bloom, as it is now, I like to put a few sprigs of fresh lavender into the letters I write. A small treat for the recipient.

It is such a pleasure to sit outside , see and hear the birds and write or read. Fortunately, I have several benches in different spots so I can usually find a shady spot to sit any time of the day.

Monograms are so much fun. I have some other ideas in my head for more uses of the monogram.

Have a Pink day!


  1. Your monogram stamps turned out nice and the tea things used today are very pretty.

  2. Hi Marie,
    What a pretty bench and your monograms are very nice! Love the three footed tea cup. I always think of France when I visit you. My youngest son is over there right now at a Math conference; lucky ducky! He's been showing his photos of the Eiffel Tower and I'm so envious! Thank you for joining me for tea today. It's lovely having you!


  3. wonderful monogram stamps. the perfect place to sip and catch up on your note writing (I need a spot like that). Love the feet on the cup. Too dainty and delightful! Happy Tea Day!

  5. Hello Marie,
    Your tea cup is very lovely. The handle is exquisite all in gold, and the shape of the legs too. Such an elegant cup!
    And what a fab postage stamp you have created!
