Teacup Thursday # 39 Auld Lang Syne

The clock is ticking on and it will soon be New Years! I found this plate at an estate sale last fall and bought it with the good intention of selling it....well....I just had to keep it and have been waiting to post it with today's Teacup Thursday hosted by Miss Spenser.

A few years ago, our dear friends Ed and Yoka who live in Powell River BC Canada, gave us this
wonderful cup and saucer. It's one of my favorites and I just love it. It has the quote from Auld Lang Syne on one side and Best Wishes for Xmas on the other side.

The cup is made by Adderley and is English. I love the green handle, holly and mistletoe that has that raised paint touches that were added by hand.

Have you ever wondered what the words Auld Lang Syne acutally mean? I looked it up and it means
"Times Gone By" and it's Scottish from the 1700's. So now you know what you're singing when you sing Auld Lang Syne on New Year's Eve.

So here's to a great New Year! I like even years, so I'm ready for 2012. Wishing you the best and God's many blessings.

So fun to have a gift from good friends like that! And the plate is so unusual with Santa in the chimney, his reindeer and Happy New Year instead of Merry Christmas! Good thing I wasn't with you at that sale. We may have foght over that one! ;-) Just kidding! You know I play nice!
