Welcome to Leisure Lane today, where I’m joining Teacup Tuesday, hosted by Terri, at Artful Affirmations, and Martha, at Martha’s Favorites. Be sure to stop by their blogs to see more beautiful teacups and more!
The grocery store was having a sale on rose bunches, so I bought one. Ten beautiful pink roses that were so fragrant that they made my soul smile. I took one of them and put it into a smaller vase to have with my breakfast.
I used a tea cup from a very nice set of 4 my brother and his former wife gave to me for Christmas one year. I almost forgot about them tucked away in the back of the cabinet. I decided that it would be fun to use one of them – like having a brand new cup.
All the cups have gold trim around the rims and handles. I like the shape because, though it’s as tall as a mug, it still has the refined, delicate shape of a cup, and they’re not heavy.
Here are the rest of them..”Puppy Love”, “Braving the Storm”, and “The Country Doctor”. I think my favorite is “Dreams in the Antique Shop”. Which one do you like the best?
A funny little story about these…One day, not long after receiving them, I decided to quickly heat up the contents in the microwave…wow, sparks did fly! I knew not to put metal in the microwave, but I forgot about the gold trimming. I very rarely use the microwave now-a-days for other reasons.
I’m also joining Sandi, at Rose Chintz Cottage, for Tea Time Tuesday. Stop by and say ‘hello’.
I’ll soon be adding two new delightful items to My Little Bloomin’ Shop, so stay tuned for that.
Thank you for visiting. I hope you all have a pleasing Tuesday, and until next time, may happy days abound!
