** Please Keep Me in Your Thoughts **

We've all heard sayings about not taking life for granted, take time to smell the roses, and we don't know what tomorrow may bring.

The past 24 hours or so have been difficult for me. A very close family member had emergency surgery, and I don't know much else than that. It's something that can be quite serious, though, and I've been really worried and fearful.

I'm sorry if I seem secretive, but I don't want to divulge anything else at this time.

If you'd like, please send good thoughts and wishes my way.
I'll also accept prayers, good karma, peace....whatever you'd care to send....including virtual hugs....(thank you, Karrie!)

Hopefully, I'll have some good news to post sometime tomorrow.

** Tuesday: Time For Tea Cups and Tea Parties **


Hello! It's another Tea Cup and Tea Time Tuesday. I'm participating in both this week. One is hosted by Martha at Martha's Favorites

The first picture below is part of a complete set.......



I actually had forgotten about it.......


Until I was searching for something else today.............


And discovered the box ...............


hiding in a drawer............


and then I saw it......and remembered!!





.....................Drum Roll Please..................




Ta Dah........!!  Did you guess it was a miniature set?!

I bought this set on E-bay about a year ago. I have a project in mind that I needed it for, but somehow that little project, like so many others, got put on the back burner.

I wrote to a blogger friend recently that I had some things that were so far back, on the back burner, that they wound up in my neighbor's kitchen and on her stove top!
