BJ, I think your little cups might be demitasse cups. I have one that looks like your striped one. Is it marked "Pleasant Company" on the bottom? Great find!

"Those are SO PERFECT for your porch", you must have did a little happy dance with their discovery... Yes the 4th MUST be polka dot. LOVE that you have the big DOT cup as your forth-some, it makes it complete. Oh and the red accents are always so wonderful in a black&white setting. I LOVE the black iron thingy on the house in the background, it POPS with your "Black&White theme"...LOVE,LOVE,LOVE it!

I love those black and white cups and saucers. I found a zebra print coffee mug at the Goodwill. The hubby gave me that look! Also it came with a Thomas Kinkade mug and a train mug. They were fifty cents a piece! Come on now, that was amazing! Those cinnamon rolls are tempting me! Stop that BJ! You know I have zero willpower! LOL! Hugs Anne
