Adding to my "Viva La France Giveaway"
I was taking a break from all my sewing projects - sitting out here on my front porch, enjoying the sound of the birds singing and feeling the cool air on my face - when out of no where - my mind snapped to attention and started screaming to me. What did it yell, you may ask? Well, I'll tell you, it screamed at me to remember - Remember, the reason you decided to have a French giveaway in the first place. So I sat back and let my mind wander and do its remembering - instead of thinking about what I still had to do. Lo and be hold -I remembered.
At an auction I went to this past winter - I bought a box with many varied items in it. These cups and saucers where in that box and are French made Ironstone.
Now I must say, these cups and saucers are large - larger than any cup we use for coffee or tea. They are very pretty, but large. Maybe they are soup bowls - I don't know. But any way, I figured rather than donate them to the Goodwill, I'd use them for a French giveaway. With that in mind I washed them up, put them away so they would stay safe and clean and proceeded to forget all about them. Till now that is. I also picked up a few scrapbook sheets of Paris and France and also am adding some French vocabulary flash cards, to the pile.
