It has been quite a while since I participated in Teacup Tuesday. I just had nothing new and I did not want anything new as I have NO place left in this house for “stuff”. I have been weeding tiny things, one at a time. However, last week when we did the Wichita trip, I did visit one Goodwill, one estate sale, one gift shop, and one flea market. You know I did not come out the doors empty handed! A book here, a dollie there…you know how it goes.
I found a black cup and saucer. I had been wanting one black cup. I wasn’t crazy about the handle on this one, but I did love the black. I thought the white rose would somehow connect with other roses I have. I can’t find anything out about the mark with the knight, but I think this is Chugai China. It is stamped made in Occupied Japan. The cup was marked half price and I got the owner down another five dollars. It was a very decent buy.
At the estate sale, I bought one thing…a piece with lacy edge for $1.75. It is too large for a dollie, too small for a table cloth. It probably would fit nicely as a table topper, but I have no need for that. It would make a nice cover for an outside tea table. I am not sure how I will use it. Any suggestions?
At the flea market I found a brand new electric tea pot. I have been wanting one but not sure why. I do NOT need this, but I thought the pot prettier than some. It has never been used and the cord was still wrapped like it came from the factory. Surely, the need will arise when I will glad I have this, don’t you think?
Now rule here is, One Thing In, Two Go Out. Now I have to part with something. Hum, my math tells me six items should go out before I place these things. Oh, that is ridiculous, don’t you think? I will work on this!
