TEA QUOTE FROM "THE ESSENTIAL TEA COMPANION"






"And if one day you find yourself in yet another cluttered little shop, turning over a saucer to study the maker's mark, running a finger around the rim to check for nicks, holding a cup to the light to detect repairs, you'll know it for sure:  You've become a collector."

I LOVE ANTIQUE SHOPS, AND YES I DO RUN MY FINGERS AROUND THE RIM TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY CHIPS. HAVEN'T BEEN FOR A WHILE, MUST GO SOON. HAVE A NICE DAY. RIZZI

So true, checking the bottom first and running a finger around the rims - we must all be predictable.

What a lovely setting! I only have one pretty tea cup so far, so I was thinking about looking for tea cups and saucers at thrift store. I will keep this quote in mind.
