It's another sleepy morning and I drag myself out of bed for my mission...
I am off to the dining room sideboard where I find some beautiful treasures!
Oh, my! A silver samovar! Gorgeous, but not the kind of treasure I seek.
I find myself distracted by this lovely silver butter set. It even has a place for ice on the bottom. Did you ever think you came of age in the wrong century?
Aha! This is what I was looking for. It's a cocoa set. Have you ever seen anything so precious in your life?
Each little cup is so sweet and has its own special flower. This one, I believe, is a cherry blossom.
Tell me if I am wrong. I have never really seen one. I have just imagined them.
This one is, of course, my favorite. A pink rose! I wish I could have a cocoa party and invite my tea cup friends. We would have cocoa made from "scratch," like my mother used to make. Then we would top it with billowy whipped cream. Mmmm. I am almost longing for Winter.
And even though it would be very hard, I promise to share the rose cup with one of you...
