  4. Beautiful teacup and a precious treasure of your grandmother Ima's. I love the delicate rose pattern. I have a very unusual German teacup set from my Oma...will have to share that in photos sometime.

    Also, I have the almost exact same Egyptian perfume bottle, as the one in your photo. I am using it for Oma's tearbottle. The shape on mine is more like a tear drop but the colors are the same. I may use that in my photo for today! Still haven't come up with my photo for today!

    I did learn that January is "National Hot Tea Month" from you last year Vickie...thank you for that.

  5. I had an outdoor shot in mind for my photo for today, but I did not like how it turned out . . . so I set up the tripod in the house and took this no-flash shot . . . today was a good time for this photo anyway . . . Grandma's birthday and Hot Tea Month . . .

  6. It was a perfect time and a great shot. I am really having issues with my lighting. I do not have a tripod...may have to work on that and see how I do.

  7. LOVE that you posted this today! I sat in the living room today admiring my teacup and thinking of Granny's sweet tea and icebox cookies.
