Choosing cups may be my favorite challenge in life thus far. I might draw from the Netherfield collection for a tea next weekend celebrating a special lady’s 82nd birthday! I have a lot of creative freedom with this one and it’s so hard to choose a vision. I know the guest of honor loves cherries and strawberries, so I’m thinking some deep reds may be nice to tie in the festive season as well. Just don’t want to border on Christmas-y quite yet! Decisions decisions ✨
When I rescue gorgeous china like this bowl, I write the details on an index card to track it for eBay. I found this set of 6 bowls for $1.50. They were $.50 each, but I got them half off - love @goodwillswpa
’s color of the week! #vintagekitchen #goodwillfinds #vintagechina
Looking like I will be at home for most of today, if anyone else had been thinking of coming for a look, today is a good day ☕🌹😊
Friday night fun around here is packaging earrings while listening to my daughters new YouTube love, geographyNOW.

I enjoy a good mystery and this has the added bonus of delicious food descriptions and a travelog of train travel through German, Austrian and Hungarian countryside. Tea in a vintage Ansley bone china teacup. Slow start to the day.
