Do you see those pretty Spring-time cups? Rita May changes out her cups for each season. I'm a creature of habit and for the past 15+ years I have been drinking my coffee from a couple of Christmas mugs that were gifts.
I have loved and treasured them all these years, but I was reaching for them without thought. Not because I don't treasure them anymore, but because..well, because it's been 15+ years! When I saw those pretty cups with Spring flowers on them at May Days I went right out to see what I could find. Did you know it's not easy to find them? I guess Christmas and Valentine cups are often used for teacher gifts so they are widely manufactured, but Spring cups...nada. I went to all the usual places - Michael's, TJ Max, Ross, and didn't find anything. Steinmart - nothing. I was disappointed. Last night I went out to buy some white spray paint and burlap (a "reveal" to come in the future), did a quick drop in at TJ Max and...SCORE!! And not just one cup,but TWO!!
I chose this one for my coffee this morning.
Here is the other one.
I'll enjoy it tomorrow. Isn't the rim pretty?
I always seem to come away from May Days posts with a lot of ideas.
In February she had an adorable vignette in the kitchen (you can read the post here). I hope to add a little pizazz to my own kitchen using the inspiration I got from this post.
Here are her Valentine cups.
And look what I found hiding in MY cabinet...
I can't wait for next February!
Thanks Rita for your inspiring blog! This morning I enjoyed my favorite 3 things...coffee in a pretty cup, blog reading, and NCIS (my very favorite program).
