So this has been a tough week and I needed some happy thoughts, what better way to brighten up a girls heart then with tulips?
I actully made this a few weekends back when things were a bit calmer, it still needs a bit of stitchin-I'll post the finished runner later- Now if you can look past the smudge prints on the window look at the sunset peeking through! I did not even know that I captured it until I began this post. Small surprises are often the best ones. Oh, you like the teapot in the above photo? In that case I would love to share its story with you!!! That set was my find of the century!! It is Wedgwood contrasts bone china, the teapot was marked $65, the pitcher $27, and the sugar $31.50. My sister and I had stopped in at this tea shop that was closing last year and I got all three pieces, brand new for $32.00. How great is that, I never find these kinds of deals and I am still excited. Someday I hope to find a few teacups. I am not normally the matchy type, but in honor of the sophisticated little set, well I think is begs for a cup or two, don't you agree?
In the spring kinda mood I also thought to whip up a pear pot holder, I had just one little fat quarter of this fabric (kicking myself in the rear for not getting more!!!) so I have a potholder of a pear but not a pair of pear potholders. Hehe
