Considering it's August, we enjoyed a nice break from the heat this past weekend. I'm so happy we did, because I was out looking for stuff I absolutely didn't need on the Highway 127 sale (aka the World's Longest Yard Sale).
One of my finds, from this past weekend, is this Lusterware tea cup and saucer set for $2.00. I really like the mixed floral design and the pink coloring.
It's simply marked 1201 on the bottom with no maker's name or mark.
Here's the saucer. Both the cup and the saucer are very shiney-looking, especially out in the sunshine.
One of my favorite things to do is to use a glass jar for flowers, especially in the summertime. The carnations seem to match the floral color on the tea cup.
I'm currently rereading this delighful book called "My Dear Cassandra" by Jane Austen. These are letters written by Jane to her sister, Cassandra and to a few others. I picked this book up on a trip I took to England way back in 2000. Below is a peek inside the book.
A few weeks ago, I participated in the Mad Tea Party blog event hosted by A Fanciful Twist. Then, last week, Dena at The Enchanting World of Milady Leela, notified me that I was the lucky winner of her giveaway, which turned out to be this sweet, little book called "Tea Party".
All the pages are pink, which is so crazy as I've been craving pink for the last couple of weeks. The book is full of tips on how to have a tea party. I really like this idea of creating small sachets of tea bags for guests to take home with them.
