Teacup Thursday #36~Birthday TIme

Just got home from meeting friends for lunch for my birthday! What a surprise. I knew my quilting partner was treating me, but had no idea two of my other friends from Maupin, my "Maupin Sisters" as they refer to themselves, were meeting me. I was waiting for Peggy to park her car and I heard someone say, hi Linda. It was Gloria. She said she was on her way home from the beach and and stopped by. I invited her to join us and they were all cool as a cucumber...then my other friend Kathy appeared, they piled up presents on the table and started laughing! I was so so so surprised, I couldn't believe it. Such a fun time at the Troutdale General Store!

So, here it is almost 5 PM PST and I'm just now posting my entry for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday.
This is one of my favorite  cup and saucers. I got it a few years ago in the town I was born in....Yakima, Washington! Seems like a good day to post this special teacup. It's Haviland and so dainty. I love it.

You know I am drawn to anything with holly, so don't you think this is perfect for me? So pretty. I wonder if there was an entire set of this pattern or just a teacup.I forgot to take out the little battery operated candle sitting inside, so that's what you can see in this photo.

So Happy Teacup Thursday. I think I'll have birthday cake and a cup of tea when I get back home from dinner tonight. Burrrrrr-it's clear and cold outside. The moon is almost full too. A big thank you to all who made my birthday very special this year! Blessings to you all my dear friends. My heart is overflowing tonight.
