A Cup For Memories

 "I myself have a coffee memory. It works best when fed large quantities of freshly roasted and ground caffeine. Early in the morning it's the only way it works at all. " A.J.Orde
Can you tell I prefer my coffee black ?
 Thank-you Nibs* for this coffee cup ! I call it my coffee cup because I set it aside as my special cup and saucer for sipping coffee while I read, think, and watch birds from my porch. Coffee is my hot beverage of choice and you have gifted me with my now-favorite coffee cup. How do you do that, choose so well a gift (s) the receiver will love ?
 Look at this saucer. As a lover of blue & white china, all things concerning wild birds, and most definitely coffee, what's not to love about this cup and saucer ?

I love everything about this cup and saucer my sis-in-law sent me in a gift-wrapped box that almost made me not want to unwrap it because the gift-wrapping was in itself so beautiful it was gift enough by itself. ( Ponder that, a gift wrapped so beautifully the gift wrapping rates as a gift ! ) I immediately declared this is my coffee cup. The deep bowl of the cup, the deep saucer able to hold the spills of coffee as I walk around in the morning, the blue and white, and best of all , the love in the sending , the love in the gifting. Yes, you gifted me with a cup and saucer to fill with my coffee memories. Again I say," thank-you Nibs! ".

Coffee, blue and white china, wild birds, loving family ~ God is so good to me. Praise Him !

What a lovely gift! One given with love, and enjoyed, and love is being sent back to the giver.

So glad you like it. The pattern reminds me of all those ducks and geese shuffling through the grass and gardens at Cedar Pond.

A perfect cup is pretty heavenly. It makes you feel more sophisticated and proper. And this is one awesome cup and saucer.
I've been looking through your other blogs. Your animals are all so beautiful! That poor Goth and his horn! You have amazing little friends! They are all exquisite. You must be a very busy woman.

There is something about blue and white China isn't there! I love it too. I also have a special cup, but for me it has to have tea in it.

What a very sweet gift. Such a beautiful cup and saucer, no wonder you would choose it as a favorite! I also love coffee..........and I never have a problem with caffeine. I can sleep at the drop of a hat! I love that beautiful puffy wool in your last post! So pretty as well as that kitty cat sitting beside it! Hope this finds you staying warm!
