A Little Yellow Tea Cup and Little Yellow Flowers

Hi everyone!

Wow, I have been so busy lately that I have not had a tea party in two weeks! Well, I just had to stop things for a moment and enjoy the day.

I picked up this little teacup at a thrift store a few weeks ago. It is just so sweet!

We had no idea what it would look like. That is one of the fun things we enjoy about swapping plants. It is called Lemon Drop  and is in the Primrose family.

  3. Diann you really do find the best things. The yellow is so bright and pretty. I love the embroidered cloth. Your vignettes are always so darling. Now I want a little tea for me. xo,

  4. What a darling tea cup, Diann! You are the best-est thrifter; always finding great items. After reading your post on the herbs, I understand that thrifting to resell is part of your business. I believe your lemon drop is also called yellow loosestrife. I have some of it that my m-i-l gave me years ago. It's still thriving. Enjoy your summer and thanks for the tea today!
    Blessings, Beth
