Points please

I mean coffee points. I need lots of them for these "ooh sooo gorgeous" china.
I saw these in the DE brochure and I fel in love! This china is designed by Pip porcelain and I desperately want it!



See the little bird on top of the teapot, such a lovely detail!

On monday I recieved a very nice suprise in the mail.
Levineke from i wanna be crafty did sent me a parcel with some wonderful gifts. She sent me this as a thank you for the bag I sent her a few months ago. She didn't have to do this, I wasn't expecting something in return. She is so kind ! Thank you Levin!


I recieved a beautiful calendar with Australian landscapes. Four different flavors of Australian tea, can't wait to taste them!


A quilting magazine, my first Australian one!

made by Emma Jansen

The magazine contains patterns and photos of the most beautiful quilts. I totally adore this Lone star (above) and the Dresden plate (below). Both quilts are made by Emma Jansen. I love the way she uses colors and design.

My fingers are itching to cut up my Kaffe Fassett fabrics and start a new quilt. But I'm restraining myself, finish my January challenge first!

Hi Corry,

The dishes are indeed lovely!
How nice to get a parcel from Australia! Down Under quilts is my favourite quilting magazine here; did you know they have a website and blog as well? There's a link on my blog.

It's such a pleasure to send parcels in the mail! I'm so glad you liked it.

I wish I could help with the points - those cups look gorgeous. I have a weakness for fine china!

Wat een prachtig serviesgoed is dat toch hè, die vrolijke kleurtjes, geweldig! Helaas kan ik je niet aan punten helpen, er wordt hier n.l. nauwelijks koffie gedronken! En wat heb je een leuke kadootjes gekregen, altijd welkom dit soort verrassingen!
Nog een heel fijn weekend!

Wow, I love the coffee set, I'd want points too! Australian quilters come up with the most incredible quilting designs, don't they?! I'm a big fan too! The colors are so beautiful and fresh. You are helping me to stick to my goals for January too! Thanks for the fun visit!

Those cups are so cute, I wonder if I can find them here in Australia or maybe I should just be naughty and order them from DE, I am sure they could do international post, might be expensive though!
