Thrifting Finds!

03_04_2014_02

I am a big tea drinker, and so is J (duh, he’s English) so we like to collect tea cups and accessories. During our trip to Value Village yesterday we found some cuties for the collection; a pair of white and yellow ceramic cups (JAPAN stamp on bottom), a pair of white cups from David’s Tea (still in the box!), and a pair of ceramic sugar and creme accessories in bright yellow with speckles. I also snagged a red ceramic micro pot and another owl for my collection. During the move between apartments my owl collection was downsized a fair bit, but I’m pretty happy with the ones I have left. Most were thrifted but some were gifts; the amethyst and brass owls on the left hand side were gifts from a resident at work, and the white ceramic owl on the far right was swiped for me by a friend from Bao Bai in Chinatown (ha!). The plushie is from one of my best friends. The small white owl third from the left floated around the house I grew up in, but I’m not sure where he came from originally. The tray they are sitting on is a makeup mirror that belonged to my Grandmother. I think they are pretty cute β™₯
