Show & Tell....

In the absence of any pics of my work to post, I thought I would do a small show and tell! :)
The first pic is of three adorable little cups and saucers that I aquired over the last couple of weeks.
The green I bought from Joolz when she unpacked it at the last market we did together, and I practically fell upon it! Then when I saw the other two for sale at my teddy bear teacher's house (she is moving to S Australia) it was definitely fate that they would end up as mine! They aren't exactly the same as the green, and also a fraction smaller, but near enough for me to display together.
The green cup is just 2 1/2in (6cm) high and the other two are about 1/4in less. They are just so sweet.....non? :)

I'm sure a lot of you would agree that not much looks better than the produce from your own back yard!? The cherry tomatoes are from plants that I let grow wild when I grew lazy with my vegie garden. Tch tch :)) But don't they look brilliant? Also pictured with them is some coriander that has unfortunately gone to seed (hence the smallness in size).
After picking them today and deciding that they would make a
lovely pic for this post, I decided that as they looked good enough to eat (naturally!) then that would be what I would do, and the pic is of my dinner for tonight. Onto a toasted 9 grain muffin I piled the little delectables (quartered) which had been mixed with torn coriander and some garlic chives. I salted this lightly with ground rock salt and then dribbled Australian virgin olive oil over the whole! Oh yes, definitely yummmmm.

Always serve too much hot fudge sauce on hot fudge sundaes. It makes people overjoyed, and puts them in your debt.

  1. Those are just the sweetest cups .

  2. I love your sweet little teacups...such pretty colors. And your dinner looks yummy.

  3. Thanks girls. They definitely are the sweetest aren't they.
    Still can't decide where to display them tho! :)

  4. Love the cups - they are just crying out for a warm sping day and a picnic under a frangipani tree!

  5. Mmmm! Yes that sounds perfect Annie. :)

  6. I'm with the rest of them re the beautiful little cups..... Australian olive oil sounds pretty good too. x
