Tea On Tuesday
Over the weekend my friend Jen took me to the Skaneateles Antique Center. That's a fun place to poke around!
Almost right away I found something for Lindsay. It is seriously 'her', and as soon as I give it to her, I'll show you here! Its really neat.
Then I found a few tea cups.
First this delightful one with changing maple leaves and a Canadian flag, named "Canada." My mother in law is Canadian and I thought it would be a sweet cup to have in her honor.
Then I found this one. I almost didn't buy this one called "Orange Blossom", but I was really drawn to it.
It's also Royal Albert as you can see, but it's older, the porcelain is thinner. I love the colors of it, and it was reasonably priced. But, I argued with myself that I already had picked out a tea cup and was getting the tray for Lindsay. I knew the other tea cup was 50% off, so it was very inexpensive.....I decided to treat myself to this one too! When I went to pay, it was 20% off! I was glad I had decided to get it! I already know it's going to be a favorite cup of mine!
So I added to my collection this weekend. I usually get tea things for Mother's Day, but I'm hinting for Annie Sloan paint brushes this year!
