Tea for Two
While staying with my parents this weekend, my little girl and I went to the last day of the local library's summer book sale. You could fill a bag with books for only $2. I didn't find many books I wanted, but I did fill a bag with movies on VHS. I thought my son would enjoy watching films from the Star Wars and Indiana Jones series.
We don't generally watch movies on VHS at home, but I like the nostalgia of watching them at the cottage. Unfortunately, when we returned to the cottage with my bag of VHS movies, my husband informed me that neither one of my parents' VCRs was working. Now I have a bag of VHS tapes to add to my collection at home.
But I digress. After the library book sale, we popped into the local thrift store for a quick peek. I am much more picky about what I buy now because I have run out of storage space. But I couldn't resist the colour and design of this sweet little tea set for two. I imagine serving some lovely jasmine green tea in it, although I probably never will.
It came with this handy box to display it in. While it's convenient, I do think it takes away from the beauty of the tea set. Maybe I could paint it?
Did you find any treasures this weekend?
