I’m sure if you’ve been here more than once, if I wrote “bone” in the title, you’d assure I meant a dog bone. Not this time! There are dogs involved, but I mean bone china. However, you’ll have to see this post to its conclusion to get back to the bone…
Another spectacular birthday box arrived yesterday from Ruth.
Hem. Have you noticed that sometimes, I drop in a photo, then talk about it, and others (above), I talk then show? Do you care? Do you have a preference?
You have to see three of the goodies up close and personal.
The Knight and I are calling that a darling little Westie. It’s MUCH larger than life in that photo. It’s an adorable keychain, obviously from Ruth’s recent trip abroad. I’ve always thought I’d like a Westie or a Scottie, but the Knight doesn’t like anything but smooth-coated terriers. Hrmph.
Why yes, the tea tin is also larger than life. Maybe tonight it will cool off enough for me to stand the thought of brewing a cuppa’… Anyway, I think it’s just a lovely tin and those words – Flowering across the slopes of the Highland mountains of Scotland – paint a beautiful picture, don’t they?
Now you’re going to have to bear with me as I share every single angle of this precious mug.
Each and every dog on the mug is adogable!
THAT is perhaps my favorite angle. I’m insisting that’s a tan basset in a cute coat.
The other cutie in the mug, and some of the doggums going down the handle.
The rest of the handle. There are just dogs EVERYWHERE!
No surface was left undogged.
Thank you, Ruth. What a grand package! I’m looking forward to exploring the rest of the package in great detail. That’s my first audio book, and it’s of a book I was just thinking I might re-read…
What’s ahead for your weekend? I’ll be trying to stay inside as much as possible. It’s supposed to be around 100 degrees this weekend, with the humidity making the heat index WAY above that.
I hope you have better weather and more exciting plans than that!
