Vintage teacup giveaway








When I scrolled through my last couple of blog posts, I realised I have forgotten to thank you for quite a while now: for you sweet comments on my new kitchen, the adventures I had with my daughter Annebelle at the allotment complex and many more. Thank you so much! They always make me smile!

I thought it was high time to do another giveaway. As I have lots of vintage tea and coffee cups, I would love to give some to you. Ha, ha, you are actually doing me a favour by joining in, because this way I can add some new ones to my collection ;-)

I hope you like the ones I chose for you. Please let me know which set of cups you prefer. The pink set (below this text) or the red set (above this text). My youngest daughter Annebelle will pick the winning number. You are all welcome to join in, from The Netherlands or abroad. The giveaway will end next Sunday, the 22nd of March. I will announce the winning number on Sunday or Monday. It depends how busy my weekend is :-). 

Wishing you lots of success! A Happy new week!

Love,

Madelief x

  8. wat een feest om te zien, met die tulpen en het kwartetspel!
    Dat kwartetspel wil ik wel winnen maar de kopjes heb ik er nog genoeg van :)
    Misschien wil je bij jouw GiveAWay er een extra kop en schotel bij weggeven van mij, die dan wel zelfs uitgezocht mag worden bij mij in de winkel! Lijkt me een leuke PRstunt voor House of Seasons!
    gaan we snel afspreken lieve madelief?

  23. Madelief, I did smile as I read this post, thinking that it is We who should be thanking You, for the beautiful posts you share with us. Truly!

    If I were so lucky as to have my name drawn, I would love the pink tea set. It is interesting that its motifs are similar to those on my own bone china. I do love such floral designs.

    Best wishes to you as spring moves closer to us every day. xo

  27. Dear Madelief - I love the set of cards you have of botanical flowers they are really attractive. Strangely I attended a lecture last week on 'the art of playing cards over the centuries' which was much more interesting than I had imagined it would be.
    I do admire the top cup in the pink set such a very pretty shape.

  30. Dearest Madelief,
    I had very good luck last year - I won your green set, you remember? :o)) Should I really try it again? Well, why not? But today I don't want to make a color-decicion. They are both beautiful! (And your spring-flowers and the nostalgic Bloemen Kwartet are pretty, too!!!)
    I wish you a happy new week!
    Lots of hugs, Traude

  32. Good heavens, the BEAUTY HERE! OH MADELIEF! I would love to enter, but since I am not really blogging anymore, it wouldn't be fair to take up a spot for someone who is actively blogging. I was just thinking of you! I just posted a post yesterday....a ONCE IN A WHILE post, and did it ever feel great to come back. I have up all my own photos. Come and take a look!

    As usual, your photos are full of life and love. So vibrant. Like art, I think photography says a lot about what the artist loves and how she sees the world. You are obviously a lover of light and goodness. SO WONDERFUL!

    Be well my friend and have a lovely day, Anita

  33. Wat een leuke Give Away Madelief! Ik lees je blog altijd met veel plezier en eigenlijk heb ik niet van dit soort kopjes, omdat ik nooit echte leuke tegenkomen. Maar de kopjes van het roze setje vind ik helemaal het einde! Ze zouden zo leuk staan in mijn vitrinekastje die ik laatst bij de kringloop op de kop heb getikt, die ik nog moet schilderen trouwens!! Dus ik ga duimen....!

    Lieve groetjes van Ellebel

  41. Madelief the tea sets are lovely, it's hard to choose between the two, if my number was picked I would be very happy with the pink set thank you, but your background of flower cards is absolutely beautiful, I've never seen anything like them, are they playing cards as suggested by one of your other commentators? and the photo of the little primulas with the fabric is so pretty, thank you . x

  56. Dear Madelief,
    I am catching up - a bit late, but how could I miss one of your postings? They are so beautiful and uplifting and reflect your lovely spirit. I just love your little vignettes - so artfully arranged and full of beautiful colors. The seed packets are particularly special, aren't they? I am always on the lookout for vintage seed packets - little works of art! I also caught the two little Dalmatians - I had a Dalmatian dog once and he gave us many years of love and protection when my children were young. How sweet of you to share your lovely teacups. I would not be able to choose - they are all so wonderful. Wishing you a lovely weekend - is it possible? Spring is here! Hugs xo Karen

  57. Dear Madelief, I came across your beautiful blog by chance a few months ago and keep coming back to it just to relax and calm down after a busy day. It has become a kind of meditation routine:-). But also to get inspiration - be it for a day trip in the Netherlands or for our garden. The pink set is so delicate and even imagining having tea from it in our garden in summer makes me feel happy. Thanks so much for such graceful and generous blog - a blog of a real lady. Natalia

    Thank you so much dear Madelief - I'll keep my fingers crossed (as will everyone else ha ha)!

    What a pretty card collection - and such a great way for children to learn the names of flowers. I'll keep my eyes open for some at the brocantes when I'm in France this year.

    Your garden is starting to wake up with Spring in the air - how lovely for you to enjoy spending time there again!
