It's time for TEA TIME THURSDAY once again! Another week has managed to get away from me. Being retired has turned out to be busier than I ever dreamed! I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I have always had a very busy and full life. Never a dull moment here.

I just found the teacup that I am sharing today last weekend at an estate sale. It's a Foley and I love the floral pattern and the soft pink that lines the cup and decorates the center of the saucer. I don't have a lot of blue teacups or teapots as my tea room is all pink, but I do love blue.

This lovely little gold heart box has been with me for a very long time. It was made by Hallmark and when we owned our Menlo Park Pharmacy, Jim gave it to me for Valentine's Day. I loved it then and will always cherish it. I think I've had it for about 30 years or so. I kept the box too.

I picked up this sweet handkerchief at the same sale as the cup and saucer. I liked the little heart in the corner and the pastel colors.

You can see the rose design on the side of the little heart box. I keep small earrings in it and it sits on my dresser.

Jim found these little glass ladies for me several years ago. I love their long dresses. They watch over my special things on the dresser.

Don't forget you have until Sunday February 3rd to sign up for my Valentine GIVE AWAY. I will pick the winner on Monday the 4th.

January will soon be over~I am ready for February and Valentines! How about you?
