Hi everyone! I just came back to this post to link it to Traci's first 'linky' party. Traci has a blog called 'Beneath My Heart'. I know many of you already know her and follow her blog. For those of you that have not met her yet, you have just got to go on over there and introduce yourself. I love Traci's blog and she is such a sweetheart, I know that you will love her too. I had originally done this post for another linky party at the beginning of March. You can just go through the teacup part 'til you get to my DIY project for March. My white china cabinet. Now that was a project! Hope you like it!
Hello everyone! Hope all of you are having a grrrreat day! Today I decided to join in at Mira's at "Belle Blanc"...she is hosting an "Action Give Away" on her blog. You are suppose to 'show your favorite teacup'.
I have so many teacups because I have collected them for years and I also sell china for a living! LOL
I chose this one because it's so pretty and also one that I use...not just sit on the shelf like it's doing in this picture. The real reason I decided to show this one is because of how special it is to me. My little boy Garrett bought it for me a few years ago. He was only 4 or 5 years old and we were shopping in an antique store one day and he spotted it and he wanted me to have it. He didn't have any money but he was sure that it was meant for me.
I remember lookin' down into his sweet big eyes and he had such a precious look on his face...he ask me if he could 'borrow' the money to buy it for me and he would pay me back later. I just smiled at him and decided to look at the price tag...the whole time I was hoping it didn't cost an arm and a leg! I smiled whenever I saw the price...$10.00 for the teacup and saucer set. (Thank goodness) Anyway, I told him yes and you should have seen the look on his face! I gave him the money and I let him carry it up to the counter all by himself. It was so sweet hearing him tell the lady at the counter that he was buying it for his momma. She looked over his head and smiled at me. She asked him if he would like it gift wrapped and he said "How much money will that cost me? I only have 1 ten and 1 one dollar bill." She told him that she would gladly do it for free.
