    Hi Mo,
    I just love this teacup background. I can't find the code for it though. You are so creative and so sweet to make these backgrounds free for your followers.

    Hi Sandi,

    I have added the code back into my post. It must have gotten lost through my editing.

    It is so great to hear from you and I hope you end up using this background. I think it would be perfect for your blog. (of course)

    Thank you for letting me know about the problem!

    I really appreciate your help.

    I have downloaded the background and it is beautiful, but I am havine trouble getting the lace header to load. When I click on this.....
    it gives me a blank page. Do you think possibly that the picture was deleted? Thanks and I adore this set you have created!!!! Hugs, Phyllis
