One of the changes we made when we cleaned out the girls' room was to move their teacup collection. Husband's mom has been giving all of her granddaughters a teacup every year for their birthday since they were very little. I used to have them displayed hanging on a diamond patterned wall in their room. They have been on a shelf in the closet since an unfortunate door slam lessened their numbers (only by one, thank goodness!). When we relocated them to a more convenient cabinet near the kitchen, we decided to choose a few to set out and display over the kitchen sink. Since they are growing up (sniff, sniff) and proving themselves to be more responsible they chose one to use for each season when they feel like having a cup of tea or hot chocolate. The Mary Englebreit teacups in the middle said S-P-R-I-N-G to them. Me too!
P.S. Don't you love the fire extinguisher in the far corner of my window box? I think it adds that little something extra to the picture. Hah!
