Pastor's wife Appreciation Day

Greeting Friends,

The church that my husband is pastor of remembered us for Pastor Appreciation Day.
Many churches do this yearly in the fall.

The board presented my husband with a monetary gift and the women of the church presented me this tray filled with wonderful treasures.

I'm highlighting one of the teacups and teapot. It was so sweet and thoughtful for the congregation to remember me!

They know me well... :) I'm so blessed by their love and kindness. It is a pleasure to work with this wonderful group of people going on 15 years! We love them very much and serving together in our church and community is such a blessing.

I  hope you enjoy seeing my special gifts!

My appreciation gift! Isn't it lovely?

The vase and heart shaped doilie were given to me

The vintage needle point was mine purchased at a thrift store in Va.

Loving the teapot!  It reminds me of Royal Dalton Country Roses

Another view of the Teapot

The back of the tea cup says, Bavaria - Jaeger & Co. Germany

Inside view with flowers and delicate gold lace

Small plate that came with it.  I'm guessing desert plate?

It's my pleasure to join the following parties:

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday
Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
Marti at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday

Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. I have never heard of this day before, but I love the concept. Most pastor's wives are involved with not only their own families but also the church family. Cheers to your congregation for remembering you.
