"Show and Tell Friday!"
Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.
Today I want to show you 10 Noritake teacups that I found during my New England vacation. I actually passed them up the first time my mom and I went to the resale store. I kept wondering what I would do with 10 teacup without saucers! Then I thought how cute they would be during springtime and Easter and so I went back to get them.
They are white on the inside with gold rims and handles. The outsides are very pale pink, blue or green.
I was telling my friend, Kelly in MN about them and she suggested putting a paper doily on the white saucers I already have.
I love this idea!
I also love what I found just the other day. Two saucers (without teacups!) that match perfectly!
Better yet, they were only $1.00 each. :0)
My friend, Revee and her girls are coming over today. My tea tray is all ready and I'm looking forward to our visit!
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
