Finding Joy

About 21 years ago my daughter Tricia bought this sweet little Tea Party set for me cause she knows her mama is a sentimental old soul.  She knew I would want to have tea parties with my grands.  We had several with it and had lots of fun eating our cookies and drinking orange juice or chocolate milk from it.

She got it at Costco. It was well loved for about a year.

One day during one of our "Tea Parties"  Miss Amanda who was probably 3 or 4 years old had an Amanda tantrum and threw her tea cup across the room and broke it. The Tea Party got put in the box and pretty much forgotten until this week.

While wandering through Goodwill, I came across these two tea cups.  Now only someone who owned the tea party set would recognize them for what they were.  $.49 each!  Of course I bought them and brought them home.  All washed up and shining.

I have ll of my tea cups again and a spare.

Manda Pet, are you ready for another Tea Party with Gramma?

I know the world is in turmoil.  My State (Washington) seems to be being consumed by fire.  I can't get across the mountains to my retreat by the river. But sometimes, just sometimes you have to find joy in the small things.

What a cute tea set. You were lucky to find two cups to match the one your granddaughter broke. I have been seeing on the news about the wild fires out there in Washington. My daughter and her family live in Battle Ground I hope the fires are not near them. Take care and have a blessed day. Madeline

Cute tea set, and memories to go along with it. I think the "little things" are really what make the most treasured memories later on.

Oh how wonderful that you were able to find replacements!
