Today I wanted to share the fun things I bought at Uncle Sam's Niece's open house. While I was entranced by the tea, my mom had found all sorts of cool things--she is often much better than me at finding stuff. In addition to 3 different tea blends for myself and one as a gift for my sister, I bought these little pretty crystal teacups:
They didn't have saucers, but I think they will make really cute dessert cups. They were very reasonably priced! Here is a close up of the shell pattern on the front:
My mom also found this picture of ladies having tea that I bought:
The last thing was a baggy full of these cute little tea themed foam cutouts for just 50 cents:
Won't these be neat on placecards, or maybe as a part of some craft or a favor down the road?
These pictures were taken with my new camera that I had to go buy yesterday because my old camera stopped working and how else can I do blog entries??!! There was a real moment of panic. The batteries of my old camera would randomly pop out and it finally got to the point that I couldn't close the door that held the batteries in, so the camera wouldn't turn on. The new one I got is supposed to be a better quality camera so here's hoping it takes better pictures! I got it for a really great deal because it had been returned; I just hope it doesn't have any problems. So far so good, though. Unfortunately, I had a horrible shopping experience at Best Buy and the camera I ended up with was like number 7 of the ones I looked at. It shouldn't be that difficult to spend money!
