Junkin' Monday

I had about 15 minutes on Fri. in a new (to me) thrift store in Blair. This and a few pieces of silverware is all I walked away with. However, I am always excited to add a new tea cup to my growing collection.

She's pretty isn't she?

I think will start drinking from my odds and ends of cups soon. Besides making teacup bird feeders, I thought I'd show you what else I've done with my tea/coffee cups in my sewing room.

Behind the pictures, is an old crate that I've filled with cups to hold "what not"--supplies, this and that....

This is an old desk drawer that had dividers in it. Tipped on it's back side, it makes a perfect shelf to hold my odds and ends cups that I think are just so pretty.

It makes collecting "what-not" even that much more fun.

My little organizers make it easier to find those little pieces for a project. I have to admit though that it's hard to part with any of the little pieces as I like them so much in their little cup homes.

  4. Clever storage. I think you SHOULD pour yourself some chamomile tea in one of your tea cups. It will help to steady your hand while do your free arm embroidery!
