Junkin' Tea Pot Treasures
One of the benefits to working in an office connected to a Habitat ReStore is that you can get your hands on the newest stuff before anyone else does. Oh wait, we don't have that benefit. Someone made a silly rule that we have to wait three days until we're able to buy a new item. Unless of course they mark something like this tea set at $50 and you are like....ah. Yeah. Not. A little too expensive for a tea set I just want to play with, three days be damned. Guess everyone else agreed with me.
So, I waited the six weeks until we had a green dot sale and pounced. It was then half off. BAM! Add in some credit I had to the store and I got this tea set for $10. My kinda bargain. Plus, then I can dress it all up with pretty candy, tea, and a flower without guilt. I did ask my MIL who dabbles in antiques if it was actually worth anything as the set appears to be hand painted Nippon. She was less than enthusastic. I guess it's worth what someone is willing to pay. ;-)
Lexi and I have been contemplating a tea party so I think I'll take my payment in memories, thank you very much. Plus, an excuse for pretty little cakes. Any Brittish peeps willing to give us some pointers, we'll take them!
Happiest of Hump Days to you!
