Look What the Tea Cup Fairy brought me!

On Friday, I received a call on my Party Wishes line. The message was from a lady who said she was on her way to drop off some tea cups to the Goodwill but noticed I hosted tea parties and wanted them to go to a good home.
I called her back on Saturday morning, hoping to catch her before she went to Goodwill and she told me she would be happy to bring them by my house.

She said that they belonged to her Mother-in-law and HER children didn't want them.
DIDN"T WANT THEM? What kind of crazy talk is that? I don't understand such nonsense when talking about tea cups!

Aren't these just adorable? The one with the pine and plaid tartan has a chip on the base of the cup but otherwise, they are all in nice condition.

I gave the woman a box of scone mix to thank her for her generosity. She seemed to be quite shocked that I had offered her something in return but happy to receive the token.
I LOVE getting phone calls like that! Thank you Tea Cup Fairy!

I too, don't understand nonsense talk like that. Poor children have no idea what they are missing out on. The teacups are wonderful.

Oh my they are just lovely!! I have a collection of mismatched tea cups that I've been collecting since I was a teenager. I love each and every one :)
Don't you wonder about their history...who drank from them, where they came from. What a wonderful call to get over the weekend!
