Everything old is new again...

My very favourite tea cup
Wendy, over at The Crafter's Apprentice is a  cheerful little bunny who will try almost any craft at least once. In other words, someone just like me.
Although, unlike me, she has the wherewithall to organize a competition open to one and all to come up with some fun and useful craft projects that employ recycling, upcycling -- maybe even bicycling (as along as it uses repurposed materials).
There is a button at the side -- look over there, to your right -- so you can join in the fun and get the word out too.
Each project posted is counted as an entry, and you can't spend more than C$20 on new materials. Although, truthfully, fess up: do any of us need to spend any money at all for this one? No, I didn't think so.
There is a prize. There will be sharing. There will be awesome ideas that will make you say, "Hey, why didn't I think of that?"
Make do and mend need not be a tedious chore. It can be fun, and possibly, profitable. Go, go on and look at Wendy's blog. You know you want to...
Not long ago, I came across my favourite tea cup from my mother's collection. I was only allowed to use it at Christmas and Easter, and I always think of that warm, milky, sort of sweet tea adults sometimes allow children to drink.
I took it for a test drive the other day, along with those macaroons one keeps hearing and seeing so much about. I have the other one to the boy child. He really enjoyed it. I was sort of unimpressed. However, my tea was magical in that magical cup.
I am going to use it more often from now on. All days can be special with the correct tea cup.

  1. She *is* a cheerful bunny, isn't she! I long for the day when you and I can meet with her - imagine the squealing and the fun :D I knew you'd want to join this challenge - it's right up your alley, and a visit to Thrift Store Alley may be in order!! Keep that magical tea cup out --- all things in life must certainly be better with a magical tea cup!

  2. Oh dear, if you think I'm cheerful, you clearly didn't read my latest post!! Thanks for the shout out though Nancy, much appreciated.

    I've never had a macaroon, they don't look very appealing
