This week’s party is inspired by one of my own teapots and some new nailpolish. I was almost certain I’d featured this one before, but it doesn’t appear that I have so I’ll show it off a little!

I bought this pretty pink teapot at an antique mall I like to go to in St. Joseph. The shop actually had a green teapot that was very similar (same pattern) but I loved how feminine the design of this one was with the pink, the flowers, and the unique shape.

I also recently went out in search of a nude colored nailpolish and ended up with a bottle of Leotard Optional by Sephora by OPI.

I love it. Love it love it love it. It was quite a change from my previously bright yellow nails that then became bright yellow and chipped, but I just can’t enough of this color. I think it has something to do with it being fall. Mauve is the perfect pink for fall.

So this week let’s have a prim and proper fall pink tea party!

Treasury tool by Red Row Studio.

I added in some purples and less-muted pinks for this treasury.

I love the accessories, that bow-tie would be really cute turned into a bracelet or a headband, or even as a bowtie with a nice high-collar shirt.

And, don’t be fooled, those cupcakes are SOAP! What a cute party favor! I bet they smell wonderful.

I’ve gotten off the table with some home accessories like that beautiful purple vintage, hand-made Amish quilt which is one of my favorites. And $78 seems like such a great price to me!

Soon I’ll have to share my new American Tourister vintage travel case that got the mauve samsonite case in the treasury. I’m so excited for my first weekend trip so I can use my new bag.
