Teacup Thursday #78

Can you believe that October will soon be over? This is the last Teacup Thursday for this lovely fall month! This past week was so busy and I didn't even get to blog. I was getting better, but....
So for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday, I'm sharing a lovely German cup and saucer that my husband just found at an estate sale for me. I didn't have a black one and was on the hunt for one. This is a very modern looking teacup, but I like it with it's gold and black clean lines.

It stands up on a tapered pedestal and has a simple handle trimmed in gold.

I never was able to read all my Teacup Thursday's friends blogs this past week either. Goodness. I hope to read everyone's this week.  On Sunday we had my daughter Angie and her boyfriend Chris and his little 5 year old daughter Ava, over for dinner. I have some pictures to share, but I am disappointed  with them. I didn't even get any pictures at dinner time either! I guess I was too hungry. We were celebrating Angie's birthday so we always use the Halloween dishes and decorations.

This was the adult's place setting. I used real little pumpkins for place cards.

This was Ava's place setting. Here she is dressed as a Halloween Kitty...pretty cute!

Chris introduced us to some lovely Swiss Chocolates....Teuscher's from downtown Portland. Each one was beautiful and oh so yummy! He chose each one and knew what each one was!

We finished off a delightful evening watching Charlie Brown's The Great fun!

I love Bavarian mid century designs. Their modern styling and flair is fab. What a great teacup! And your little "kitten" is so cute! You must have had a wonderful time!

Linda, what a lovely table you did for your daughter Angie, how fun to celebrate her birthday w/Halloween. Those chocolates look so yummy and his daughter Ava is a cutie. You know I have also done that sometimes of not taking enough pictures, I think it's the excitment that gets in the way, but you did good. Love the tea cup your dear hubby bought for you, it's so unusual looking and elegant with the gold. Hugs...Lu
