The Very Last Drop
First I'd like to say Thank you to Martha and Terri for inviting me to tea once again as they are the perfect hostesses and they truly know how to set out a lovely tea
Unfortunately, this just might be my last Tea Cup Tuesday entry, being that this is my last tea set that I own.When we moved here to this city I knew nothing about it, the shops, the people, the community and the vibe, so, I tooled around in the bunmobile and lost myself in this great city of mine and came upon a little out of the way gift store. My hubby and I had just tore apart the dining room and gave it a quick revamp. We stripped off the wild psychedelic orange and yellow daisy wall paper and down came the heavy dark gold drapes. We painted this room a very faint green and an even fainter pinkish color and at the time I was really into Ivy, actually, I still love Ivy, but back then I accessorize with an Ivy motif. Having said that...back at this little shop of decorative items, I came across this very cute Tea Set. It's off white with green Ivy all through the 2 tea cups, 2 saucers, tea pot with lid, creamer with lid, sugar with lid and tray.
It's a miniature Tea Set.
What's that you say? That's not Ivy? Well, It doesn't take a house to fall on me, as it took about 10 years for me notice that it's NOT an Ivy pattern, but a CLOVER pattern. As I said, I was kinda Ivy obsessed and all I could do at the time was focus on Ivy and I was either delusional or in denial or just couldn't see, but it is what it is and I still love it.
What's that you say? Where's the other saucer? I didn't know at the time of this photo, as I couldn't find it. I looked high and low and in the end I thought, "Oh Well" and of course when I was finished taking pics, up loading them into the computer and put the camera away, I found it....the sugar container was sitting on it plain as day. I'm thinkin' this is a magical Tea Set where saucers and Ivy patterns appear or disappear.
In any case, I'm very sad that I don't have more tea cups to share with you all as I've enjoyed each and everyone that has joined in on the fun. I suspect that through my travels in and around estate sales and yard sales, I will be on the look out for that perfect tea cup...HEY! I have an idea, why don't I bring the scones next time...I'm just sayin'
