Teacups & Trucks
Look, we went shopping for a teacup and brought home a truck!Can you see the teacup on the hood of our new ( used ) truck ?My husband's car was totaled, as in smashed, killed, crumpled, in a wreck a week ago. Fortunately no one was hurt seriously or killed but the cars involved, and the wreck was not my husband's fault. Unfortunately, he really liked his car and now we had to go out and find a new vehicle to replace it. On our search we stopped at an antique store along the way. As my back was still in pain my husband helped me out of our rental car and I hobbled along beside him to stroll through the store. Now how kind is that? My husband even lifted teacups up off shelves for me. We both decided we liked this cheerful cup and saucer, and it's price.
The colors of the cup and saucer compliment the color of the truck, don't you think?As you can see,after we bought the teacup and went on our way we discovered and bought a truck we were very pleased with . We drove it home, the truck, not the teacup.
The underside of the saucer reads "Paragon, By Appointment to H.M. The Queen & H.M. Queen Mary" Fine Bone China, England, registered "
Oh I really like our new teacup and truck! I will probably always remember this as my truck teacup. Do you think my husband would have ever thought he would be shopping for teacups the same day he shopped for a truck?
I love him so much! He is sure I'm nuts, posing a teacup on the new truck , but he puts up with me anyway. To view the Tea Time Tuesday Ladies and see lovely teacups and all things tea ( probably NOT in or on trucks ) just click onto the names of the ladies below :
