Once upon a time, I attended an auction where the auctioneer knew my name. That can be both good and bad, but in this case - it was good. Unable to get a bid, he yells, "Sandi, will you give me a dollar for this box?" As ususal, I said yes. When I go thome, I found 6 pretty tea cups and saucers. Thinking I wanted to share my luck, I took them to the flower shop, and had a dried flower arrangement put in the, and at our next outing - gave one to each of my four friends.
Later on, I was told that these tea cups are vintage Japanese China, and sure enough the markings on the bottom confirmed that. I never did tell my friends, nor ask for them back as bad as I wanted to........
I think they are so pretty, and so dainty. I think I made a mistake by breaking up the set, but I didn't know what I had. Oh well.
