Happy Friday everyone! It’s a perfect late spring day here and I’m loving all the sunshine. Today, is Grace’s last day at school and tomorrow she graduates from Pre-K. So cute. They will even have a hat and gown ceremony! Pics to follow…
So, I just got back from the post office, where a kind gentleman helped me fill out custom forms and calculate posting to Finland! Yes, that’s right, I just sold this little tea cup to a lovely woman in Helsinki. (I have four more left).
I always get such a delight connecting with people across the globe. Etsy makes that so easy to do! We emailed each other a few times and she has said she will take a picture of the tea cup when it finds its place in her home. Oh, how I wish I could send myself off to Finland! I’m living vicariously through a piece of porcelain…lol.
Isn’t she sweet? I found her and her buddies on the dusty shelves of a thrift store – just waiting to be loved. The pattern dates back to the 1930’s and she was made in England by the Myott Staffordshire company. There’s a little history…now let’s take a peek into her future…what will she see in this beautiful Nordic country?
Bustling city life…stunning architecture…sailboats…
vast blue skies…ancient forests…winding mountain roads…fabulous interior design (they are just so good at it!)….oh and nordic tea pots…hello.
I wonder what table she will grace…what stories will she overhear? Whose hands will she warm? I know I must sound a little nuts…but it’s fun to imagine what an object witnesses…if it could actually witness things…ok, you get my drift…I think all the sun is getting to me. Let’s just hope the mounds of bubble wrap and peanuts gets her to Finland in one piece! Fingers crossed!
Have a fabulous, fun-filled weekend!
