T as in Tea Set

My dad was in the Korean War and on one of his furloughs he spent some time in Japan.

This is the tea set from there he sent home to my grandmother

I love that the cups are white on the outside and black with flowers inside.

On the bottom is Castle China and Occupied Japan

I have loved this tea set since I was a little girl and my grandmother had it displayed in her china cabinet. It's mine now and one day I will give it to Shauna.

To the best of my knowledge it has never actually been used to serve tea!

S is for Signs

On a recent trip up north we saw some interesting signs

Bear Crossing

Didn't see any bears though!

Watch For Amish Buggys

Didn't see any Amish people either.

Did see this Falls last summer, which was gorgeous and worth the 0.6 mile hike into the woods!
