Lime Green for March






Hello Sweet Tea Friends

Don't you love having friends and family helping you search for your favourite teapots?


My daughter-in-law's mother found this rare lime green Sadler Cube teapot at Value Village last week for $29.99.  It has a broken but glued handle... I hope it's not too noticeable in the pics.


Before she bought it, Lanny sent me a pic and asked me if I still wanted it with the break but I knew it blended so nicely with the lime green leaves in  my favourite rosy pink cube so of course I said yes... What's a girl to do?  Thank you sooo much Dear Lanny, I love it!



(I actually found Lanny's coffee pot to match her Mikasa Lavender Lane china.)


Now I have a lime green cube and mint green one (shared in my previous post :)



My china shopping rule is no chips or cracks but this was one exception to the rule. 


I just love pink with any shade of green.



Thank you for stopping by today.


Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Blessings,
Karen

A Wintry March


Hello Sweet Friends,

I must apologize for my absence from blogging. My, busy busy life has made life challenging lately.


The snow has fallen once again today and I am looking so forward to springtime.


My hubby and son just finished shovelling the driveway.  I don't remember a March quite like this one and unfortunately snow is predicted for this week too.


I am up in my son's old bedroom which has become a storing ground.

 Right now  odd chairs and tables are finding their home in here. 


Hubby plans to eventually paint this bedroom but as you know we are putting much needed floors in at the cottage and the work is endless so it is on the "to do" list indefinitely. 


I thought minty green would be a nice spring-ish choice for a snowy March day.



This pretty pastel flowered cup and saucer is a Foley. 



This dainty polka dot trio is a Paragon. 



This is my very first Sadler cube teapot that started my obsession.


The african violet is in bloom and


the oxalis is just starting to show some white flowers - love it's shamrock shaped leaves.


Thank you for stopping by today.


I hope the weather is cooperating in your part of the world.


Have a Wonderful Week!
Karen
