Lately I have been doing some organizing around the house. So one of my projects was cleaning out this cupboard in my kitchen that holds a lot of my tea cups.
This is the cupboard with the doors closed. The cupboard came from Coulson's antiques in Summerside and I painted it a creamy white.
This little teacup is hand painted and so dainty. I found the cup at a yardsale but there was no saucer so I found a co ordinating saucer at a thrift shop later.
Almost all of my cups and saucers were either a gift or thrifted.
So after arranging them all neatly-I remembered that many of you over the past year have asked where I keep all my china so here is one little nook for them.
Now ,some of you might be wondering why I would need or want so many teacups( and maybe I should confess that I do have others) but I do have garden tours in the summer where we serve tea and we have a few bookings for 40 people at a time already-so who knows when it might be two bus loads at a time! I have to be prepared( he!he!) or maybe I did deserve that dishaholic award I got last year from a fellow dish lover!
Last year many of our tours cancelled because of the H1 N1 flu so I am happy that we have some tours starting to book already for this summer. Many of our home and garden visitors are from Japan and we enjoy sharing it with them.
