I decided that my tulle shall come from my hat. Although, I do quite fancy a tulle and teacup post ballerina style. I just need to find the right petticoat. You would think I would have a big flouncy one, but I don't. I shall add it to my wish list.
Did I ever mention how much I love fairies? Especially, the classic Cicely Barker style. I'm glad that I was inspired to bring out the ol'tea cups. I still remember many years back Oprah had a show about things she enjoyed and one of them was drinking tea from a china tea cup. I'd have to agree there is something special from drinking tea from a china cup. Although this cup is china, it does come from South America, go figure :)
A quote from C.S. Lewis:
"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."
"There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea."

I've had this couch for so many years, it is indeed now vintage. It has such a history and has been very faithful. I bought this couch before I met my husband and it has a certain history and carries my independence with it (symbolically). There is another matching piece to this set. It served me well in my Las Vegas days. It will be soon time to retire this relic. But, the good thing is it is comfortable and the children can build awesome forts.
Also, check it out. I got WON a giveaway. The wonderful Janey at AtomicRedhead sent me this great book, Style Me Vintage - Hair. Stay tuned for a future post on my attempts for retro hair:)) Thank you Janey! I was so excited to win this great book from the fabulous Janey and she was so thoughtful that she included a new vintage friend for me too. This is a great idea that I am going to swipe. It's a lesson in history to also take a peak at every day life through vintage family photographs. The big problem is that I want to know more about who these people were.
Off to drink my tea....
