 Teacups and Tiaras
 Crafting Goodies 
and Cheese.......

Here at Tea Cottage Pretties we not only love teacups but we love tiara and all things sparkly.  Today I went  by our local Hobby Lobby and I was looking through the Wedding Items and I found the MOST fabulous Tiara Napkin Ring Holders/ The best part was that they were on sale for 50% off.  They are so fabulous that I had to share them with my all my friends here on my blog. They will be on sale through Saturday so if you reside in the US and want a set for your very own stop by and grab them now. I can't wait to add them to my Tea Room.

Mixed with vintage items

I also ordered a handbag pattern and handle kit. I am so excited about this item.  It is an interchangeable handle so I can make different handbags to put on it. I will  post a full story once I get it made.  I can not recommend this kit yet but if all goes well I will be sure to let you know. 

I also got a beautiful pink fabric with Tea Pots and such and a coordinating green with small polka dots (color does not show well in photo) and ribbon to make my first handbag.  I got pliers for split rings for making jewelry.  I got some extra wide crochet type trim to make crowns and the fabric stiffener needed for this project. My girls and I are going to be making the crowns!!! I also found a PINK pin cushion for $2.00 (could not pass that up).  Last but not least I got some beautiful jewelry making supplies. I got a LAUGH charm, 2 mirror charms, bead charm and I got two very beautiful closures. You can not see them well in the photo but on is a crown with rhinestones and it has a bar that goes through it.  The other is a sparkle ring with a hook closure, they are adorable.  Now I must wait till I feel much better so I can have fun crafting and sewing. 

Now I just need some interfacing for my handbag and a rhinestone bow.

Mozzarella Cheese Anyone?

To top off the week my  DH and I made our very own MOZZARELLA CHEESE!
I can not believe how much fun and how easy it was to make. It turned out fabulous. 

There are MANY recipes around the interwebs or you can purchase a kit and/or needed items at a Beer Making Supply Store or Fresh Food Market. 

Here is a link to a Recipe for Mozzarella Cheese. 
Give it try, have fun and enjoy! 

I am now up to 48 Followers and I wanted to thank each and everyone of you for visiting me and for following me. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

  1. Ha those are so cute!
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend too :)

  2. They are very pretty Beverly. I especially like them mixed with the vintage items! I have a small collection of tea cups and saucers that I inherited from my mom.
    Love Di ♥

  3. The cheese looks good. I'm too lazy to make my own. But I'd love to try it homemade!
    This post makes me want to sew. Maybe I'll break out my machine and dust it off! Love Di ♥

  4. The cheese is fabulous! It took about an hour to make. I will post my handbag when I get it finished. I am excited about it.

  5. Wow! It looks like you had a marvelous time shopping! I love that fabric! It's beautiful! And the tiara napkin rings are really pretty...can't wait to see a table set with those!
    Thanks so much for coming by and joining my party!
