Teacup Tuesday and Paint ~

Kim over at Shabby Pink and Pretty asked me to join in Teacup Tuesday last week and I almost totally forgot today! I used to own a zillion teacups and saucers, teapots and lots of things related to tea, but I have since sold a lot of them and only kept a few that I just can't part with. This set is one of them. I love it's gorgeous delicate pattern ~ This is what I have been busy doing that I almost missed Teacup Tuesday...better late than never I guess...LOL I really don't mind painting , but I can do without the whole process of getting ready to paint...taping off, cutting in, moving everything out of the room etc...by the time I start actually painting I am tired! ~
My favorite color of paint right now...it is called *SUMMER LINEN*...just the name alone would get me to buy it. LOL I painted my entry way this color a few years ago and thankfully held onto the paint chip because they don't have it anymore...but I took my paint chip in and had it mixed and it is spot on! ~ I hope you have a wonderful day today...it is gorgeous here in Michigan~ Blessings~

Hi Sandi, Such lovely china. I love any china that has flowers on it. I wish Mich wasn't so far from Idaho, cause I would come over and help and then maybe you would come help me next week. I am painting my bedroom among other things outside. I hate to paint alone.
Hugs, June

Funny, I like to choose paint colour by the name, too. ;)

Hi Sandi, truly better late than never! Happy Teacup Tuesday.

Love your paint! It is tiring, but what a great feeling when it's done.

Hi Sandi,

I'm so happy that you joined me for Teacup Tuesday this week. Your teacup is just lovely. I adore the soft pastel colors of it and the shape of it is somewhat different than what I normally see. I'm glad you kept some of your favorite teacups and didn't get rid of all of them. Life without teacups would be very sad.

Oh, by the way, I found a small china pitcher in an antique shop a few weeks ago that I believe has the same floral pattern as the china pieces in you blog banner. I will be showing it in a future post.

Take care and enjoy the rest of your week. Now, I'm off to see some more pretty teacups.

Kim
