Yippee! Look What I Got as a Surprise Today!

Okay, this isn't my normal Tea Party vignette type Tuesday post. I had a different post ready for today but, the the UPS guy knocked on my door!

Isn't it always exciting to get a box delivered to your door?! Well, this was not an expected box, well at least not expected by ME! It was addressed to Troy so I handed it to him.

He opened it and started setting all these teacups and saucers on the table. I just kept looking at all the little beauties that he unwrapped.

When he was done, he said "Surprise!"

He had won an online auction for this lot of teacups and saucers from an estate sale for me!!

Now I still haven't had time to really look over all my beautiful new teacups and saucers but, I was just too excited not to share! So, here are some "overall" pictures of all my new treasures!










I can't wait to show you each one of them in the next coming weeks!

I am joining these fun tea parties:

  4. So pretty! That yellow roses saucer looks familiar - perhaps like the one in your last tea party post? I love the teacup with the violets. Yes, what a sweet man Troy is!!! Give that man a hug and tell him that all of us other tea party ladies are going to tell our husbands about his thoughtfulness.
    Hugs, Beth
