Blue Monday

Last weekend we went to a few yard sales.  We don't do this very often, but we were looking for a few specific items.

I was not expecting to come upon four Spode Blue Room tea cups and saucers.

When I tell you that the lady charged me only $2.00 for all four, you won't hate me will you?

They are so beautiful.  We have already used them several times.  I believe beautiful things should be used and enjoyed, not put aside to save for some special occasion.

I am join Smiling Sally and all the lovely ladies over at Blue Monday!  Go have a look!
