When I was in Phoenix, my daughter Marie and I spent one morning antiquing. We started our shopping spree at the Scottsdale Goodwill, and never got any farther. They were having 1/2 off on everything, and we both found some treasures. My two favorite second hand treasures to find, are tea cups and classic books. I did hit my mark this time around, with these Mikasa Italian Countryside Dishes. I found this set of 8 cups and saucers for 80 cents (for each cup and saucer set). And a stack of hard bound classics that I didn't already have (except for the Jane Eyre, which I found that I already have 2 nice hard bound copies here at home... somebody is getting a gift). These aren't "old" in the sense that I usually like, but they were nice, and I snagged them.
We have had some cold weather around here; and a little snow. This was the view from our bedroom a day or two ago... we've had a tad more snow since, and temperatures have been getting below zero. I think today I will try to find a quiet moment to enjoy a nice, hot, cup of tea in one of these new cups, and delightful read in one of these new books and stay in with the warm cozy fire. How about you? What are you all up to?
