"Our hearts are filled with gratitude
each and every day
for the things that make life special -
spring flowers, a warm hug,
a surprise visit from a friend.
A gift given when we least expect it
or when we most need it
fills our hearts with thanks."
Then there was this Shelley Cup and saucer that my sweet hubby brought back from a trip.
The pansy tea cup is Royal Patrician.
A very sweet friend came to stay with me a few years ago. She brought me this lovely teacup which had been purchased in Amish Country. I love the delicacy of the flowers. And of course the flower overflowing inside the cup invites you to take a sip of Earl Grey, or English Breakfast tea.
This teacup once belonged to a very special lady. She had an amazing collection of English teacups and when she passed away her husband freely gave me many of her tea things.
This next teacup might be my number one favorite. It was given to me by my daughter one year for Christmas. She brought it with her from a trip to Chicago.
Isn't it beautiful? I love the dainty blue picture. The line is called Kensington Blue. And what really sends me is the words surrounding the saucer. It says "May the Lord bless you and keep you, and give you peace." Number 6:24-26
My dear daughter knows how much I really like blue and white china. So she also gave me the teapot to go along with it.
