Tea & Towels

September 15, 2006

I got a few of these Bavarian teacups this week. They are very delicate and froofy. I'm attracted to these small pretty things, but in our home almost all of our dishes are solid white.  Anyway, I looked these cups up online and they sell for $25….for one cup and saucer! That price is from a replacement china place, so I guess if you are shopping there you really want the piece and will pay that. It is just crazy to my cheap brain.   

Speaking of teacups, we had a tea party yesterday. First, we made blueberry muffins together. I let her do all the stirring and muffin linings. We cleaned house while they cooked and then she got dressed-up for the party. We turned on some Getz & Gilberto too.

She used all kinds of "please's" and  "thank you's" during our party. And said cute things like, "Tea parties are my favorite!" "Muffins are so yummy" "Mommy, you have pretty blue eyes. They are like mirrors."

I was surprised that she liked chamomile tea. She loved eating in the dining room and using glass instead of plastic. Then later, after we took our shower she asked me to dry her hair like I do mine. I love this photo. 

This weekend I hope to get a grommet thingy at least, if not start on the curtain too. Also, if we have some nice weather I hope we can go on a little family outting around town. Enjoy your weekend all and spend time doing what matters to you. ;-)

    Pre-cious! And isn’t it great when kids want to help and we have the time to slow down and let them? I dropped Eliot off at school this morning and stood for 15 minutes and watched from outside the classroom (unseen by him) as he chopped apples, and added cinnamon and sugar to a big bowl. I think they were making applesauce from the apples on the tree in their playground. It was precious and he was so self-assured, chopping away.

    Have a great weekend!

    I love having tea parties with my son! He enjoys them so much, and makes them fun for me.

    Keely with the towel on her head is brilliant! I love that photo.

    Your daughter is such a cutie !!!
    Isn’t afternoon tea with china just the best.

    I love the fact she has put a string of beads on for the tea party!

    my kids much prefer ‘real’ plates and glasses too! Are we just terrible parents who place too much important on a piece of china? What it they break, right? Except when they do… and then it’s really annoying!

    That last photo is something else!

  • 19. molly  |  September 18, 2006 at 2:20 pm

    that bottom picture is absolutely perfect!! I LOVE it!!
