Recently freinds have given me some darling towels with tea cups on them. The tea canister was a fun flea market find.
This was all I had this week until a friend dropped by this afternoon. It was so hot, but we decided to go grab a quick Sonic during Happy Hour. I know, it should have been tea, but she is NOT a tea drinker. This friend has already given up on summer and has decorated her mantle with autumn leaves. She thought it would feel cooler! Anyway, we drove by the local hardware, an old fashioned kind that also does a lot of dishes. There in the window was the most delightful array of late summer hues; it was enough to make us forget the horrid heat. We went inside and had to bring a few of the pieces home. While I am not ready to put away all of July/August things, I thought these great sunflower pieces would make a nice transition into fall. While I am not a much of a mug person, I thought these would make great cups of hot tea on the deck on October mornings...or maybe in evenings when the air has a slight snap of chill to it.
