While Audrey hunted down a poor, unsuspecting moth this morning, Annie headed to the dining-room when she heard the'clink' of dishes. She knows this is a serious job and,although she has quite a gerth on her, she tip-toes through the tea-cups with precise agility.
It's a time-consuming job dusting the inside of cabinets and all the china so this takes up a few mornings after cat-sitting chores are completed. It's very tiring...Annie's exhausted at completion.
Seeing Audrey already ragged me out, look what I found on a thrift-shop shelf yesterday.
I thought this little cup and saucer was so delicate looking. "Home you come".
2 little orphaned cups..
The lady said, "Are you sure you want them; they have no saucers?"
Pfft...I have the perfect saucers.
How could you possibly leave orphans behind.
Especially when they were born in England.
The flowered cream and sugar bowl..so sweet and so comin' home with me. $1.00
They are Fine Bone China and made in England.
"God...I love England."
Cute, cute, cutey, cute.
Little pieces of art.
I found myself back there again today only minutes before closing time. I couldn't get my mind off a cake stand that was calling my name as I was lined up at the cash yesterday. Thank goodness I bought it 'cause today I made a cake.
Ok that's it. I've lost my dusting partner since the sun showed up under the dining-room table so I'll close the cupboards and that's that.
"Sweet Dreams, Annie"
