They Were Free

So I snagged them. (From the Swap Shop.)

Three Taylorton cups. Made in America.

The floral one is Symphony in Blue (made in Japan). The solid blue is unmarked.

These three are unmarked, but very cute anyway.

Out of all of them, this one is my favorite. One of the Taylorton cups. Look at the leaves on the front and the inside of that cup! Very autumnal. Swoon! Now I know why I don't have a favorite color. I love the colors of the season I'm in.

yes I'm with you on loving the colours of the season. I love the deep reds and russets we are having. That cup is perfect for Autumn.

Gorgeous cake for your birthday. Well done on getting a zoom lens- hubby got himself one and loves it. It was usefull for reaching Halsall church ceiling details, so I think I could like it too. :-)

they were free? wow-wee! I love the one with the burnt orange inside...swoon is right! they are all so very beautiful.

I used to drink tea with my grandma. Bigelow Earl Grey. The smell of it really takes me back. (I had some this morning.) we would drink it in the pretty cups like these.

That's an interesting comment you made about colour. I don't have a favourite colour which most people think is really weird. I think how we react to colour depends on the situation. Thinking about colour seasonally is an interesting idea!

Just last week I found one of those wheat cups. Only one.

Hello! & Happy Belated B-day! I had a dream about you this morning. I was asleep on the couch with the tv on. A Nissan commercial was talking about "A Lot for a Little" in the dream you were wearing your strawberry dress with Spencer and when they said "for a little" you held out the sheet with the dress shape cut out of it. Made me laugh! Probably on my mind because I have meant to say congrats on your letter in BH&G. And the running too.

My favorite cup is the one with the blue inside.
