Anyone for a Cup of Tea?

Good Morning!

Isn't it nice that i finally have found a background for my blog that suits me? yes of course it is! I am so completely satisfied with it. It took me forever to find something I liked to put on my blog as a background.

Today is the day we reveal our teacups from the teacup exchange hosted by Stephanie.

I was surprised that I actually got a teacup because anytime I sign up for something it never works out that I get the exchange. I was so excited this time when the package came, I was not even exspecting it. It's like that saying when you least exspect it, not sure what the reference is for that saying but it fits here.

My teacup came from Stephanie's Grandmother Dee Ann. I thought that was a beautiful name and she not only sent me a beautiful teacup but a matching teapot with cookies and everything was wrapped up so pretty with a lovely card it was really so sweet and I was really excited and happy to get it.

Thank you Dee Ann if you should find your way to my blog.

So pretty and so me!

Updated: I forgot to say who my partner was....Linda Colantino

This is the teacup I sent her. I actually could  not find a cute teacup so my mother found one for her. 

Okay well I haven't blogged all week long..... been deep in thought and activity. I was working on some new techniques I have wanted to try one was making Chainmaille Earrings while waiting for a craft die to cut perfect squares for a quilt I am making to arrive, it did not arrive. I am still waiting. 

This is the chainmaille cluster earring, the other one is not photographed here, but this is for one ear! LOL! I did make both. They look really really really pretty on. I love them, the next ones I am making will be silver crystal AB. 
These are Swarovski Crystal Rose Gold drops with 14K filled earwires. I love gold and silver. 
Which do you prefer?

Come on over to my Facebook Page Krystal Kat's I post my jewelry and Crystal Suncatchers there.

The weather has been perfect here in the 80's and even the upper 70's after having almost 2 weeks of upper 90's and over 105 temps. It's been a blessing and I am so happy about it because I hate hot weather, that is one reason why I want to leave CA. I guess if you are lucky enough to live along the ocean you are not going to be so hot, but inland it is to hot for me.
When I got to San Francisco I am cold!
I much prefer the cold because I can wrap myself in a cozy sweater. 

I am up late because I am swamped with orders today, so been up making everyones pretty little crystal sun catchers!

Have a very nice weekend!
