A couple of Sundays ago one of the ladies at my church greeted me with a gift bag containing two teacups. She had seen them at a recent garage sale, and when she showed an interest in them the lady asked if she was a teacup collector. My friend told her no, but her pastor's mother loved tea and teacups. The lady said since she was the only person during the sale to give the teacups any notice she wanted her to take them and give them to me.
What a nice surprise, and a person can never have too many teacups!
The teacup below is bone china, made in England.
The floral chintz teacup doesn't indicate that it's bone china, but it's very pretty nonetheless.
During these hot summer days I'm drinking iced tea more than hot tea. Recently I saw a picture of a refreshing summer salad on Pinterest that I decided to recreate myself. I had the fish plates to serve it on, and the salad made a wonderful summer meal. I'm sharing a photo of my recreation, in case you'd like to make it too. With tomato and hard boiled egg wedges, avocado slices, shrimp and ripe olives on a bed of romaine lettuce, it's very healthy. I served it with Thousand Island dressing on the side, and a couple of slices of French Bread. Yum!
