New Tea Cup Does Not Hold Frigid Air Away





It is another frosty day. We had had a lot of soup this month, and I am running out of fresh approaches for my soup pot! We have had Panera Potato, Chicken and Bean, broccoli and Cheese, Beef Vegetable. and I think the next is line is a pot of Ham and Anasazi Beans. I also have a chicken and kale recipe somewhere I need to dig out. It is definitely Soup Season!

After Friday's fall, I headed to town on Saturday for a few things. I found I did not feel as perky as I thought, but I made one impromptu stop at an upscale resale shop that had a moving sale sign in front. As discounts! I pulled in because I had been watching some sliver and turquoise napkin rings. Even with a healthy discount they were still quite pricey. I could only stretch to buy four of the eight. The owner let me choose any four I wanted.



I also saw a cup and saucer that was very reasonable. I have not bought a new one in ages mostly because I do not NEED one! But this one was so pretty, don't you think? Its delicate shades of golden yellow with dainty pastel flowers were so pretty. It feels light and fine, but not too fragile. It is Noritake, but know little about that kind of china. Does anyone recognize the pattern or know the name?

I love soup! We have it every week. Usually chicken or leek and potato. I enjoy trying new recipes too. All yours sound delicious!
Your new tea cup is fabulous! Wow, that is a gorgeous Noritake pattern. I love the soft delicate floral art. I don't know anything about this company, so I am sorry I can't name the pattern.
Stay warm : )
hugs,
Terri

I don't know if you ever go back and look at old posts, so I wanted to let you know that I left you a comment on your Jerico Springs post. I just randomly googled and found your lovely blog. If you ever care to comment back, my blog is http://christygetscrafty.blogspot.com. You brought back a lot of memories from my very brief visit there.

The teacup is beautiful. No idea of the details on it though. And soup! I'm a big fan of soup. If you're interested in a very different sort of soup, let me know and I'll send you the recipe for Chicken Supreme, a soup that was proprietary for a Las Vegas restaurant, Alpine Village, before it closed. After the restaurant closed, they published the recipe. It is a thick, German soup. Delish.

Hi Claudia...Mmmmm, your soups sound yummy.

Yep, you saw the little pitchers from your Grandma in my collection of "littles!" They are very precious to me.

Your new cup is a heart-stopper. Lovely.

Thank you SO MUCH for your faithful visits. I appreciate them (and you!) SOOOOo much. Susan

The napkin rings would have caught my attention, too! We use them since we use (and re-use) cloth napkins.....
