Small Town Living at Its Best

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

Tea for One

The flowers were a gift from our pastor's Mom. She was thanking me for taking Pastor to the hospital last week (after she fell in the middle of the night and broke her arm). The biscuits are homemade, and of course some of my homemade jam too! I'm going to sit and enjoy the quiet
for awhile, hope you don't mind.

The tea cups and saucers are pre-war Japanese china. I got 5 cups and 5 saucers in a box of junk at an auction, years ago. I had 3 of them filled with flowers and gave them to my friends for mothers day one year. At the time, I didn't know they were worth anything. I paid a $1 for the whole box of junk! The detail on the tea cups is exquisite. I have 2 cups and 2 saucers left, and they stay in my collectible cabinet.

I'm joining 2 different parties this week. Please leave a message of encouragement as you drop in and visit. Everyone loves comments! You can find more fun at the below links:
