Tea-cup Thursday

Primitive Rose was found in a little antique shop in Almonte, Ontario.
Yes, I do pop over to that town often. Mostly, I am there to have lunch at the Robin's Nest. She makes 50 different types of soup and so far I have not met one I didn't like. Quiche, sandwiches on home-made bread,. amazing salads and tea in real tea cups are never a disappointment. 

And right down the street are many fine antique and thrift shops. I never come home without at least one little addition to my china cabinets.
This little tea-cup is nice and plump & has a good wide handle.  I like the little touch of apricot. It was made in England and is a Royal Albert cup and saucer. Again, I wish I had found two of them but one will do.

The phone is ringing for more Easter weekend cat-care. I thought I was only caring for regulars this time and then today a new client called and I will be meeting two little lovelies on Saturday for the first time. One is six and one is thirteen. I'll be seeing that lovely Abyssinian again this weekend and many, many more. Did I mention I always care for bunnies at Easter? That's when I add a little bag of lettuce and sliced carrot to the cat-bag.
One's a holy terror but he still takes the lettuce and leaves me my finger. He's a waskily wabbit.

Hugs, Deb

    Your planters look great - it will be nice to watch them grow.

    Hope you get some warmth and sunshine this weekend. We are still getting some sunshine and about 17 degrees during the day, but a bit chillier at night, so Poppy is snuggling with me on the bed now.
