Geek Boy Grammar Nazi enjoys tea. Or perhaps it's become more of an obsession, I'm not sure. He handed me a catalog yesterday, pointing out a teapot and saying I could get that one for him. It came with tea and some tea bags...and it was only $90. Hmmm...alrighty then. I'm not sure when this tea thing began with him; perhaps it was when I used to pick chocolate mint from the garden and we'd make tea with it? I really don't like tea in the least, but he had fun adding a bit of honey and stirring it about.
I found this blog while skipping about the internet this morning and thought I'd have to share it with Geek Boy Grammar Nazi. You may enjoy it, too!
My grandmother one day offered me some of her teacups. Not all of them, she said, as she wasn't quite finished with them yet. But a few. As she pulled them out of her cabinet, she held up this little pink cup and saucer, saying that for some reason it gave her the warm fuzzies. She asked if I wanted it. Naturally, anything that gave Grandma warm fuzzies was something I'd cherish, so I said yes and she packed it gently into my box of newly found treasures. When I got home and began unpacking I tipped the pink cup over and saw a signature on the bottom of the saucer, Edris Fitzgerald, 1962. Oh My Word!!!! That was my other Grandmother! She'd died when I was about four, so I never really knew her. But she'd worked a bit in ceramics and this was one of her pieces. I was so glad I'd taken that precious cup!
Over the years I've picked up a few more little trinkets and treasures. City Boy found this terrific Cinderella teapot; it came with four cups that are designed as the stepsisters, the prince, the fairy godmother and of course, Cinderella herself. Since Darling collects Cinderella, she claims it as her's :) Darling enjoys a pretty teacup as well, and got the little rose one on the right, upon which sits a package of decorated sugar cubes.
