While in Henderson Tuesday I stopped by my favorite little rinky-dink thrift store. Rinky-dink it is, but I always find something special there. On this day however, nothing caught my eye. Glancing through the last rack of skirts, I noticed something on the floor under the rack. Raking it out with my foot I'm thinking, this looks right pretty...is this skirt not totally me, up one side and down the other??
The green price tag was marked $2.99. But wait, the sign on the front door said, "all green tags, 50% off today". Wow! Just my style and only $1.50. I drove home feeling pretty smug.
I have been searching searching searching for pretty teacups and saucers and seriously, there are none to be found in the thrift stores around here. Could it be that folks here aren't tea drinkers? Well, except for those big sixteen ounce tea glasses filled with ice and that Southern sweet tea which is a must with a meal!
My daughter Lynn loves tea and at one time had a collection of beautiful teacups. Each of her four children, boys included, had their own pretty teacup and saucer. Late afternoon, Lynn would sit down with the children and they all would have tea. Now that the boys are grown I wonder if they ever think about those afternoon tea parties with their mother. I wonder if the boys would even drink a cup of tea now.
The old sugar bowl, center top, is from my Mother's set of china. It's all I have. Anyhow, I do enjoy one cup of tea in the afternoon. Tea with honey. I use the same tea stained teacup and saucer day in and day out. Have you seen Granny Marigold's teacup collection over at grannymarigold.blogspot.com. Have you seen Deb's teacups over at justcats-deb.blogspot.com...well they put my little teacup to shame. :) I love their teacups!
Looking into my little cupboard today I was surprised to find a teacup or two...sitting right there in front of my eyes.
Not too sure if I am happy with this post but Poppy is waiting for the computer. Thank you for visiting.
