It was a fairly nice spring day here, weather wise; and they say the forecast for Tuesday is for the low 80’s, but we will see.
Over the weekend I was visiting a few new blogs and one of them was Artful Afirmations who along with Martha' Favorites has this participation post called Teacup Tuesday. Since teacups and tea pots are a few of the things I own in multiple I thought I join in. I'm not in the same class of photographer as these girls, but we try.
I thought it only fitting that my first post be about these two large cups I am offering in my “Viva La France Giveaway”. I won these in a box of a lot of miscellaneous items at one of our local auctions. In the box there was also a teapot and sugar and creamer set. (Unfortunately they were in a rather woebegone condition and beyond saving - so they went into the circular file. - without me even washing them up.)
These two cups are a French Ironstone and are large - larger than the poor teapot was - so I presume they are soup sets. The flowers are so dainty, but the cups has some heft to it. So If any one is interested - these are part of one of my giveaways.- which will be drawn after midnight on May 5th - please feel free to comment and enter the Giveaway.
The auction this past weekend wasn’t very good for me - things were going higher than I wanted to pay and a lot of the stuff was rain damaged - as they set up the day before the auction and we had tornado warnings and terrible rain that evening. The rain even intruded on the auction and my poor old body was hurting real bad because of it. So Sir Knight was kind enough to take me to the Goodwill where I scored just a few fun pieces.
Many fun things are happening around blogland that I want to participate in, I'll keep you informed as the month goes on.
Winners to be Drawn after midnight on May 5th for all the Giveaways. Hope you win!
