Today is Teacup Tuesday hosted by Kim of Shabby, Pink and Pretty.
My teacup today is a Nasco Japan cup and the pattern is Rose Marie.
Okay, here's the story. Whether semi- consciously or subconsciously, I do not know, I managed to pack all my teacups. So, of course that meant I needed to get more. Now I figured I would hit this one shop that I know usually has cute little china cups for fairly reasonable and get one for me and one for daughter.
Off my little companion and I went in search of cups for Teacup Tuesday. Sure 'nough, they had beautiful little bone china teacups for $10.00 for cup and saucer, so $20 for two. But... as we were looking around we spotted these, 4 plates, 4 bread plates, 4 saucers, and 4 cups. I don't really like to say how much but... $7.99. Okay, so ya, I know it's more to pack but alas, I had to.
Packed some of it and...
Plan to tote the rest along with us in case we get the chance for some downtime and tea along the way.
Portable tea party!!
(Is it just me or is this case just itching to be painted?)
I love pretty, dainty things; tea, and all the accoutrements; folk instruments, dulcimer in particular; and folk music. Hankies, doilies, and a pretty table set me at ease. I enjoy hospitality/entertaining, etiquette, and the social graces.
I am a medical transcriptionist currently on sabbatical. Born in Wyoming, I have lived all over the US, first on the west coast (California, Oregon, Washington), in the middle-ish (Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma) and even some time with my husband in the coast guard on the east coast (Florida and Virginia). I have been able to meet so many wonderful people and really gain insight into the different regions of the US.
Most of all, I love my God and savior Jesus Christ. I am traveling through this life and when I stand before the throne I hope to hear, "Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter in."
