Pretty Cups


I wanted to show you these three sweet cups for Show and Tell Friday (although I'm joining very late this week). I got the Beatrix Potter mugs for the girls for Christmas. They are bone china, and I found them at Tuesday Morning for a third their original price. Very sweet!

I've had the bunny cup for years. When I was a teenager I used to babysit for our pastor and his wife (Dr. Collin, who later introduced Billy and me). Their kids gave me the cup for my birthday one year. I treasure it! Their oldest, who was in first grade then, is now a senior in high school, and their "little" boys are way over six feet tall. Where does time go? Now I have a 7-year-old of my own.

Show and Tell Fridays hosted by Kelli.

I love those cups! Our son Barrett has 2 giraffe cups that I've "confiscated". They are so unique and delicate I won't let him use them. :-) I personally like them so much I'm hoping he'll forget they're even his. :-)

Oh, I think the only thing better than finding something you dearly love is finding it at a bargain price. That makes it so much sweeter. What a great find. Thanks for sharing.
