A Little Shopping

I’m not much of a shopper but the other day I was in Hobby Lobby just wandering picking up some beads for the stilettos and saw 4 coffee/latte cups that I just had to have.  They were so cute.  Several years ago at Hobby Lobby I bought a cute set for Christmas use – 4 cups and 4 saucers and a little metal hanging rack to put them all on.  I like and wanted something to put on it for the rest of the year and not just use it at holiday time for 4-6 week.

My find – each cup is different and unique on its own.  Only problem was there were no saucers to go with them.  I like to have a saucer too to catch those little spills.  I looked a bit in stores and on line and couldn’t find anything the right size.  Today I happened to think – what about the antique mall in town – it is full of little booths all under the same roof – in a nice clean building that doesn’t smell musty – I hate those places – my sinuses go crazy.  I think it looks like I need to dust off that little rack before I forget about – I didn’t notice it until I saw the photo Smile


I found two different booths that had something that would work – but after going back and forth looking I settled on this one – 4 saucers – one yellow, green, pink, and blue.  I thought one of the cups had a pink rim but when I got home I see it doesn’t – oh well that is ok – they still go fine and just the right size!



I saw quite a few quilts too – I will post those tomorrow!

Now back to quilting – it is cloudy outside and humid today and will be for the next several – rain chances have increased and when I pulled in the driveway a little while ago it actually started to rain – for a minute Sad smile oh well, maybe later? I have to think positive!

What cute cups! And I don’t think anyone would know that those saucers didn’t come with the cups. The colors of the saucers go perfectly with the cups. And actually it’s even prettier that they are all different colors. I’ll be over for a cup of tea to try them out. Hmmm, better make that iced tea because it’s too darn hot!!! lol (PS: Will your husband drink out of them or will he think they are too … um, girly?)

I’m almost envious – lol! The cups are so cute and the saucers fit perfectly! The pattern and colors on each cup reminds me of summer – very beautiful!
