Teacup Thursday #28 and Company!

My dear friend LaVonne arrived Tuesday night from Montana. She is a "Harvest Blessing" to me! I usually plan her time here with lots of things to do and lots of people to see. She has really had a difficult summer so we decided we wouldn't over plan her stay this time and just take it day by day, staying close to home.  She brought treats for me so wanted to share a few.

This is a delicious butterscotch vintage kitchen bowl-the kind I just love. I have never seen one in this color and I will treasure it.

This is a close up of a wonderful English biscuit tin. The little lady looks like our Tasha Annabelle dolls.

Doesn't this little guy make you smile? He's an egg separator made in Bozeman MT. He'll come in handy and is just so cute. She also brought us ham hocks, spareribs and a chicken from her farm-packed frozen in her suitcase!!! Thanks LaVonne!

We went to the Goodwill "bins" today where you pay by the pound. It's one of LaVonne's favorite places to go when she visits me. We spent four hours there and had the best time and found tons of treasures. My husband calls it root hoggin' and that's what we were doing! The hunt is half of the fun. I forgot my camera, but will take some pictures before we unpack the car tomorrow.
Of course we had to stop for coffee after that and then on to the craft store. It was almost 7 PM when we got back into the car! I took her to dinner at my favorite Thai food restaurants which was a first and a hit for her. YUMMY.

Oh is time for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday! I'm showing another one of my fall teacups. This one is by Ridgefield Potteries LTD and I love the fall pattern.

I better get to bed so I can be ready for another day of fun with LaVonne! And belated birthday wishes to sweet Miss Spenser. I hope you had a delightful birthday and my best to you in the coming year.
