Today, I'm enjoying a lovely cup of Double Cream Earl Grey tea by Teaja. It is a delicious mellow tea that has a yummy flavor! AND, I finally found a Buddha cup/bowl ($17)!! So today, it's holding my tea :) There's not a lot of colour to my tea because I don't like it strong.
I looked in 2nd hand places for old lace and doilies too, but only found a couple and they wanted an arm and a leg. But when I went to the Lions garage sale here at home this Saturday, I bought a grocery bag, stuffed, for $11. Just what I was looking for :)
These circles are about 2.5 inches across and there 15 of them per doily. The edges will be great for cards, lace books or my pincushions, etc. There are two beige and one white of this style.
I was also looking for bits of jewelry on the trip and did manage to find this gorgeous bracelet for $3 at a second hand boutique---the large stone had come loose and they glued it back on, but it was a bit foggy--great for what I wanted it for. I did try wearing it and found it a bit 'scratchy' on my arm, so it didn't bother me to take it apart.
A couple of snips of the wire and I now have some gorgeous pieces to use on a book or whatever :)
I absolutely LOVE the colour of this bracelet!
Thanks so much for coming to visit :) Have a great week!
