I LOVE this little teapot..... because, for one, I NEEDED a teapot..
and I LOVE THE SOLID WHITE....
O, I can see the PUZZLEment in your eyes...
Nope...this isn't a puzzle...
PHOTOSCAPE....

Such fun to play with photos in PHOTOSCAPE.....this is just a lamp on the tea table....aka the desk..:)I heard opera singing when I found these two adorable cups...

*******************
I truly do hope that YOU have as much fun blogging as I do.Maybe it just came at the right time in my life...maybe I have finally found a creative outlet for my talentless self..
I've discovered I LOVE taking photos...and the writing..the visiting..

I just love the WHOLE ENCHILADA..

Such a pretty, sunshiny day for a nice cup of tea......

....two of the prettiest, snow white cups and saucers..
these were at SALVATION ARMY THRIFT STORE...
.....a dollar for both..
The teapot, so shapely curved was $3.00 at GOODWILL....
and these cup look fabulous with it...
I love the graceful curves of the little dainty handles on these cups..
**
...the scalloped saucers made me fall in LOVE...
..that little crystal vase belonged to my mama..
These little butter cookies that come in the pretty tins..
2 for $7......
I love to keep these on hand.

Yes sir ree bob...I have TWO beautiful cups full of WHITENESS..

Hi BJ
I love your bargain teacups and teapot and you know I'm a tea lover. It's always fun to visit you. Just wish I could get around more often!

CHERI said...

I must be eating the same enchilada! My talentless self (unlike your very TALENTED self) has enjoyed blogging very much...and to think I only discovered it a very few short months ago! Love your teapot. We used to have this wonderful flea market close by and I found two of the absolute cutest teapots there for almost nothing! I'm still working on my photography. Think I'm getting ready to delete Picasa though and maybe try Picnik (or however you spell it). I have Adobe Photoshop but haven't figured out how to use it. Please keep on keeping on with your blog cause it's wonderful!

Such great finds. I love white dishes especially because no matter where or when you bought them, they always match! I'm in San Antonio and it's still hot and humid here. Is it autumn in West Texas yet?

Rita said...

What a lovely post! You described everything I feel about my blog.
I only post once a week; I really enjoy the time I research about what subject I will write about.
I loe to share my recipes. Sometimes, I have no idea until the day before and it comes pouring out. I guess you are right it just happened at that right time of our lives. I don't think I'm very far behind you age wise,I mean.
I love all your great photos and what you write about; I feel you and I are in the same stage of our lives. I don't see too many others my age who share this love of computer and blogging(not around here anyways)
Please keep on Blogging.
Hugs,
Rita

It was wonderful that you took the time to stop in for tea. Your white teapot is sa great find. You will use it often. I use mine alot. I have been looking for cream or off white teacups like your white ones. Simple and so elegant. Lovely vignettes this week I loved them all and I can tell you are having fun blogging. I am still in catch up mode from my trip but tea is being served. Hope you can join the fun!
Have a blessed week.

Best,

I would love to come for tea! I think blogging came at the perfect time for me too. Sometimes life gets too crazy and I have to be away a little more than I want to...but, I love it and I love all of you!
