Tea Cup Tuesday

I dont usually show anything of my little treasures but I noticed on the lovely Dawns Blog that she joins a weekly t c t blog group so thought I would join in this week and maybe next week if I remember.

This set I purchased from a charity shop not that long ago, I simply had to have it as it was so cute!  I have had lots of comments about it as it sits on display in my dining room.  My daughter would love to get her hands on it and play with it!  It is Wedge Wood and consists of Tea cup, saucer, side plate and larger plate, milk/cream jug, sugar bowl and tea pot.  ( I think that's right ladies?)

I do love looking at it!  Right I am off now to check out some other gorgeous tea cup loveliness!

Catch you all soon

Some thing different some thing sweet

Well as most of you know I have a HUUUGEEE love for guinea pigs and I run a forum with my lovely friend Anne dedicated to guineas and rescues who do so much for guineas.  Anyway I thought I would share a little story of a gorgeous piggy who is being fostered by a lovely lady named Joey and her partner.

Here is Joey's story of Lily and her babies and prepare for cuteness overload at the pigture!

Poor Lily came to us a bit worse for wear. She had been sexed incorrectly, so was pregnant by her brother, but that wasn't the worst part! She had fallen down a ramp whilst pregnant and suffered a broken leg (her back left one). She came to us just after her operation with a lovely big scar. Things looked grim as she had to have an xray, a general anaesthetic for an operation to have her leg pinned, antibiotics and painkillers. All of these not great for a pregnant sow! We feared the worst for her leg and the babies but thanks to an awesome vet and a lot of vegetables, on 17/09/10 she had three beautiful, perfect babies. Phew! I hear she is a bit of a celebrity at the vets for getting through it all so well and the pin taking as well as it has.

Lily and babies will be leaving me soon for rehoming, once she has put on a bit more weight. I will be sad to see them go, but so excited for them.

Lastly, a picture of how I found Lily and Rose having a nap. I almost melteed when I saw this!
 There are sooo many lovely people who do so many fab things for guinea pigs, joey is just one of them!
This September we are holding a stitchathon in aid of guinea pig rescue, lots of forum members are stitching blankets, cuddle cubs and cushions for piggy's to keep them warm this winter and to give some pigs that extra bit of comfort!  Check out our forum for more details, Guinea Pig Haven
I will be back tomorrow with my little musing DT and this weekend is a new challenge begins over at craft your days away so watch out for that!

Arent I a Lucky Lady!

Its our 11th wedding anniversary today, so yesterday while the children were at school hubby whisked me off to Bath for the day.  It was a gorgeous day it was lovely just to be able to walk around Bath with out our kids!

Whilst we were there hubby took me to the Kath Kidston shop and bought me this fabulous bag, mobile phone case and little mirror, I was in that shop for ages trying to decide on what to choose.  But I have a great hubby who just let me take my time and offered his honest opinions on bags and accessories.
hubby also bought me these ickle lickle guinea pigs to add to my ever growing collection 
of piggy goodies!

And here is me sporting my Kath Kidston Goodies by one of the Bath 'Pride in our City' lions  There are 100 lions dotted all over bath city centre and they have all been decorated by some one important!
Now Kath Kidston is important to a lot of us ladies and here is her lion!
Right I am off now to enjoy a quiet night with a nice meal with my hubby!
Will be back soon with some crafty stuff later!
