Pretty Please With Sugar On Top

Today I stopped in this craft & antique mall that I have by my home. I did not find what I was looking for but I did see this pretty tea cup and saucer that I purchased to add to my tea cup collection. It was $10. It's a Bridal Rose print by Bavaria Schumann. I don't buy cups for the name though. I buy cups that I can afford and that I find to be pretty. After I came home and washed it up, I took a picture for you before I set it into my curio cabinet.



Boy that wasn't all I spotted at that craft mall. I got to looking and my eyes fell in love with this china cabinet. It would look so lovely in my home. I already know where I would put it. In my home office where it would be nice and safe and away from my rough housin' family. There all boys left at home. Yes I was including my husband. It would look so nice to set my tea cup collection in there. It's very antique but in perfect condition. Sorry I did not get a picture of it because I didn't think I'd need a camera. But I could set doilies in there and place my tea cups inside of there. There a two doors at the bottom that swing open for maybe my crochet afghans.
I've been saving some money for awhile now. And I hate to even type it out because of the bad economy right now and all. It was..................$398.00. That is a lot of money to me. But I loved it! Pretty please can I have that? Please? With sugar on it? Oh dear I'm in such a dilemma. I'm going to think this through over night. I would really like to get me a comfy chair for my office to though. Some place where I can read or do my crocheting. But don't forget, furniture wears out and gets old. And this things already old. Just had to add that in there. =) Oh dear I don't know what I want to do. Like I said, I need to think about it over night. I told my husband that this is what I think I want to get.
Well my dream might just come true. The Michigan Mega Million Lottery is up to 212 Million! I even went out and bought me $5 worth of tickets. So if I win...I won't have to worry about it. Sold!!!!!! I hope you all are having a nice afternoon. I'm signing off......from Peek-A-Boo Street!

  1. Oh, your little cup and saucer is so delicate and pretty!

    On to the china cabinet, go for it! If you've saved the money for something special I would say the cabinet sounds special to me!

  2. Oh my gosh.. I'm the same way about spending a chunk of money.. so I always sleep on it, maybe even sleep on it for a couple nights and I also drive my hub crazy by asking him over and over what he thinks and LOL he always says "buy it if you want it"
    No help there :)
    Maybe you could buy it and look for a office chair at a yard sale? I found a really nice one for only $10.. ya just never know..
    Good luck deciding and let us know..

  4. I love the cup and saucer. I know the economy is bad right now, but if you do buy the china cabinet you would be helping the economy. I do hope you go for it. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  5. I love the way your blog looks Anne! And the teacup and saucer is just precious. I agree with Madeline, buying it would help the economy and really there's not much wear and tear on a china cabinet compared to a chair or couch. I hope you get it!
