AND THE WINNER IS . . . .
Hi Ladies: Wow! Did we have a Tea Party or what? I think Tuesday's party was the largest one yet! Boy, did we see some beautiful cups. It always amazes me that there are so many beautiful cups I have not seen before and I am always looking. It was great fun. I am part of a Tea Cup Exchange this week. I have sent mine on it's way. I am a bit nervous about it. I hope she likes it. This is my first. What if she hates it? I told her if she hated it, she could send it back and I will try again. I really loved the cup myself, so here I sit with my fingers crossed waiting for the verdict.
Thursday is the day I go to the thrift store and today, I hit the Mother Lode! I found this beautiful, white rod iron bench that sits three. I was so excited. When I got it home, my house was empty so I ask a man walking his dog, if he would get it out of the car for me. Poor guy, didn't know what to say, so he helped me. It was so heavy, but we did it together, and I met another neighbor! I love rod iron pieces for the outside of the yard. They look so romantic, however, they are always so expensive, this one was a steal.
I went with my friend to the thrift store and we both were lucky enough to find some very wonderful things. Here are pictures some of the things that I got today. Can you believe it? I purchased a few pieces of Belleek that I am going to put up on Ebay, as well. If you are a Belleek fan, and see something you like, let me know. I will make you an offer you can't refuse!
Did you notice that cute pink depression glass, divided plate? It is on a silver carrier. Isn't just too cute? I washed them all and tomorrow I will find a special place for them to call home. I just had to show you all the lout! I feel like a kid in a candy store!
Oh yes, I almost forgot, we have a winner for the Tea Cup, giveaway! Noah picked it out of a hat (ok, bowl). He loves contests, because afterwards, Grandma gives him a Truffle (his favorite)!
