Hello Pinkies! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I want to thank you for all your comments about my broken tea cups. I have a good news, many of you have offered to take them off my hands so they went quickly. In fact, I got more requests than I had the tea cups to give. So sometime next week, they will be arriving at various homes around the world. I feel better that they have a happy home. Very important for all tea cups involved! (I guess healing for me will have to wait just a little bit longer!)
Did I ever tell you I collect lady figures and statues? The little one by the gold tray is relatively new. She is a Florence. I have several Florence figurines. I think I did a post on them over a year ago. I just love how they make anything look so pretty.
This PS I am displaying a few new treasures my mother and I recently found on one of our outings. The first is a new depression glass perfume bottle to match the big one I had. Did I ever tell you I collect perfume bottles? Well, I do. Most of my are small and dainty. I just fell in love with the large cut glass one and now I have a smaller one to match. One day, I will show you some of my smaller perfume bottles, if anyone is interested.
I also collect vanity boxes. I know, I never told you that! I recently picked up this one with 2 Southern Bells on the top. It has a lovely pink bottom. The colors are vivid. Also, on today's post is more of my many decorative plates. I have over two hundred of these plates each one different than the next. Plates were the second thing I started to collect and still do. I have collected plates since 1982. At one year, my husband, Kelly, was just trying to count the ones I had up a Christmas with Angels on them. He quit at 100+. I am a Serial Collector without a doubt! I just must be in confession mode!
Among the pictures today, is my little love bug, Noah! His daddy gave him a buzz. His daddy is a police officer so he has to have his hair cut short all the time. I was heart broken to see all his locks cut off. I am thankful that his hair grows back quickly. Have a wonderful week ladies! I am going to try to post more than twice a week, in case I don't, mark your calendars for Tea Cup Tuesday! It seems that the party just keeps growing. Terri and I are so glad you are enjoying it so much. Hugs and Kisses! Martha
