dainty follows funny ...

Well, sometimes it does.... and today is that day.

While at my sister's place...we shopped the thrift stores in the small town near where she lives ... who can believe there are several?  It's just a tiny town.

And.... in the midst of all the trash and treasures... I found this beauty.  Only $5.00.  Well, had to have it didn't I?   How I love a dainty, prettily coloured teacup.  I only have 3... so when this one beckoned...

It is in pristine condition too..

What an elegant little tea cup. I am hopeless at finding things at car boots. They just don't seem to jump out at me!

OH VEE...that cup and saucer is to die for!!! Its so beautiful.You are so lucky to come across it and for only 5 dollars...WOW!
VEE!!! Thank you sooo much for the comment you left me.Coming from a master doll and bear maker like you, means more than anything.
I got to looking at ADQ,and did notice that their entries are all the same,hardly nothing new, and hardly nothing from new doll artist. What do they want? They told me to keep submitting ,but it cost $89.00 to send in a doll and that don't cover the return postage I have to send with the doll.That is way over a 100.00 for each doll.I can't aford that right now.My hubby just retired. Then they kept the dolls for almost a year.I'm pretty sure I could have sold the Marie doll last yr.
I think you are right. Maybe ADQ is not the right mag.
What are you working on right now Hon? A friend of mine wants me to mkae a wedding theater doll for her ,but I can't seem to get started.
You take care, and again thanks for your suport.
Hugs and kisses Marie Antionette
