Old habits die hard
When I'm bored I do one of two things; groom the cats or play with dishes.
By 'playing with dishes' I mean re-arranging, co-ordinating, cleaning or photographing them.
I remember as a child playing with my mom's cups, saucers & silverware. I didn't have a camera then so I was content just to stack them and mix and match the saucers & cups. I would set the table with her china and have a tea-party for my dolls. I can still hear my mom saying "are you in that china cabinet again?" She must have thought it was a bit wacky for a kid to like dishes so much. She probably thought I'd own a classy bed and breakfast some day. She hoped, anyway.
I added 2 cup hooks to my small china cabinet today. This is just the start of something big.
Did I mention I love blue and white? Almost everything in this cabinet was bought at an antique/thrift shop.
I guess you noticed I collect tea-pots? Audrey can't figure what the fuss is about them. She says they are useless.
We are off to our property today and hoping it doesn't rain. There are rumours it will rain for 4 days straight once it starts.
Have a good weekend.
