Sharing a hobby

It's always better to have company when you partake in a hobby you love. Actually, there is no getting away from this little firecracker. She seems to have numerous interests and one of them is me.
I  love to play with dishes, photograph dishes and eat off of fine china. I think tea always tastes better in a china tea-cup, for sure. I had the chance to bring home a box of tea-cups from a recent auction in our area and would love to show 2 of them off. More to come. But, as you know, a joy shared is a joy made double and I am enjoying my company in the dining-room early this morning. She is behaving herself for a change so I expect she's saving her energy for later. I can just imagine what is to come.

This cup is Jason - Bone China, made in England.
" need a bigger china cabinet"
This cup is also Jason - Bone china, made in England.
They are two very pretty cups 

Thanks for your help, Audrey.
"You know I'm bored, right? Let's play"
I'm joining a few parties this week.
hugs, Deb
