Hello Sweet Friends
"A Mint Green and Cream Christmas Tea"
"The Broken Treasure"
I am just starting to get ready for Christmas....
A few weeks ago I found this silver tree centre piece at Crossroads Thrift Shop. As you know I love crystals and bling so I couldn't resist. It is really meant for photos but I like it without.
The traditional red and green Christmas colours do not go particularly well with my colour scheme throughout the house so today I am choosing some mint green accents.
As I was washing the teacups and trying to be extremely gentle with my favourite thin Shelley cup when I was drying it..... oh no! And much to my dismay, it cracked.
I was so excited about sharing this Shelley ....
It is called "Pole Star".
I quickly got out the glue gun and tried to put it back together. No, I didn't cry but I wanted to.
Unfortunately no one will be able to drink from this dainty treasure again. From this side it looks almost perfect, doesn't it? Well, almost.
Too bad it wasn't this mint green Colclough. I have a few of these cups.
I don't mean that really. I do love it in mint green too!
Do help yourself to a Cranberry Citrus Oat Crunch Cookie in the Beleek heartshaped dish. It was once my dear mother-in-laws.
I found this sweet tiny Christmas teapot spoon at Salvation Army (I call it Sally Ann, do you?) for 49 cents.
The cream and sugar have a special little story to go with them. I found the creamer at antique shop and when dear sister saw it one day at my house she realized that she had the matching lonely sugar bowl. So, the generous gal that she is gave it to me and now I have the matched set!
Sweet Sister and I do like the same things. I must tell you another amazing story. One day she consigned two pretty fringed lamps and then I went into the same shop and bought them!!! The dear would have given them to me for free but I paid $50.00 for the pair. (I will share those another day).
Another time Sister put a pretty plate in the Sally Ann. What do you know? I went and bought it! Funny but true stories!!!!
I can't remember where I found the Foley mint green and flowered tea plates.
Tell me, dear ladies, to make me feel a wee bit better; have you ever broken a treasure?
Thank you for the honour of your company today!
Enjoy the season!
