Hi Honey, how was your day? and my favorite teacup...

Mira over at Belle Blanc is having an action giveaway. To win this giveaway, you must post your

favorite teacup before March 2nd. She will pick the picture of the cup she likes the best.

No drawing, just her personal favorite. This will be one giveaway that I won't be winning,

because I've seen ya'll's china before. Mine are just little yard sale finds that I've come across

over the years. Picking a fave was difficult, but this is the one I chose.

It is stamped Made in Germany on the bottom, I hope that makes points for me with Mira.

I love this little cup with it's sweet row of roses around the rim.
Behind the cup are all the little runner's up. My little second choices.

All of them pretty in their own right, but they just couldn't compete with the roses.

So whatta ya think Mira? Isn't she a pretty thing?

Now for the rest of this post I thought I would share how my day went today. I know you
all have days when you wish that you had just stayed in bed. Well, today was one of those days for me.
Once a month I have to go to the doctor for a shot in the rear because my body does not take up B12 the
way everyone else's does. If I get low on B12 I get what is known as pernicious (sp) anemia.
Getting this shot is a pain in the (*&#@), literally. I have to drive 30 miles to my doctor, and when I got there this morning, my order for it had expired and my MD was not there to renew it. It's a nurse who gives me my
shot and because my DR. was not there to order it, he couldn't give it to me. So home I went.

I then thought that I would spend the day painting the trim in the bathroom, something that has been waiting for months.(and months and months) I was standing up on the vanity and washing the trim above the mirror and for some reason I stepped back as if I was on flat ground. I made a lot of noise when I hit the dresser that I had moved to the middle of the floor.
  No I hadn't been drinking... I think I just forgot
 where I was for a minute there.
Wasn't hurt, just stunned that I had done something so stupid and glad that I hadn't got the shot, since it was my rear end that took the brunt of the fall.
I then go to open the paint and since it had been sitting for so long, it was as thick as frosting. I tried to thin it
every way I knew how and use it anyway and ended up making quite the mess. So now my painting is on hold until I can make it to the nearest Home Depot. 
I thought it was a good time to just go take a nap since I was starting to feel the effects of my
graceful dismount from the top of the bathroom vanity, but thought I should go pick up the mail before
I got comfy. I thought my bad luck was behind me until I opened my mail and there it jury summons.

Here's hoping that your day was wonderful. I'm planning on staying in bed tomorrow.


Carolyn said...

Hi June,
Ouch!!! That sounds like a nasty fall-I hope you don't have any ill effects.All that and jury duty too!
Love your teacup-pretty photo.
Hope your weekend is great!

Blondie's Journal said...

I hope your fall isn't anything may wake up sore tomorrow. And it does sound like you had a frustrating day. Shame on the doctor's office for not calling you...sixty miles in your car!!

I hope you have a simple case when your date for jury duty comes up. I am always worried I will have a big murder case and have to be sequestered!! What an imagination I have!;-)


Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed! Hope you won't be feeling the Pain of that fall tomorrow!!

Julie Marie said...

Oh June, I am so sorry to hear that you fell... I do hope you are ok... some days seems like everything that can go wrong, does... on a brighter note, your teacup is beautiful! I love the roses... and about jury duty, I do believe you can be disqualified due to hubby's occupation... (I always was)... xoxo Julie Marie

Draffin Bears said...

Oh no.... dear June.
Sorry you had a bad day and sometimes things just go like that.
I really love your sweet rose teacup
and I hope that maybe you can get let off jury duty.

I am wishing for a happy weekend, for you dear friend and hope that the pain is not too bad.


glee said...

oh, I love tea cups. really want to have lots of them in my kitchen :)

perhaps you'd like to win some fancy accessories? we have a contest going :)

Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings... said...

and then Jury Duty on top of all that!!!!
Good Grief!
The last time I had Jury Duty...I never had to go...maybe you'll be that lucky too.
Have a better weekend,
xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

My goodness June, you should have just stayed in bed. You know that old saying...."some days your the bug and somedays you're the windshield."
Hope things get better.


Miss Gracie's House said...

Oh...your poor bum...I hope you can move tomorrow...I would think your teacup has an excellent chance of winning...just the kind I love!

Nice and Easy Antiques said...

Oh my! Don't blame you for wanting to stay in bed tomorrow...well, luckily for you, this day is almost over!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Oh June,
I'm so sorry but glad you didn't hurt yourself. My grandma had pernicious anemia and gave herself that shot in the leg... but now I forget how often. Sorry to hear about the jury summons too. I got one a while back but they didn't seem to want me (it was a murder trial - yikes!) since there's law enforcement in the fam... but you know that already ;)
Had a super busy week here so I'm already in bed watching old movies and it feels luxurious and oh so good! Have a great weekend, things are going to be so much better for now on for you... Really!

Diane said...

You had a really bad day. I can imagine stepping backward like that. In fact I can imagine almost every way to fall because I have. Hope you don't really hurt tomorrow. Maybe you better have a nice hot bubble bath tonight and soak out that soreness. Jury - yuk! BUT...your little teacup is so pretty.... a winner in my book. I love the little roses, too. Hope tomorrow is better. Blessings, Diane

littlethings1 said...

I have to say , I love your cup ! It is so sweet ! Sounds like your day didnt go to well , I hope you are okay ! We all have days like that !Hope you have a fablous weekend !

debi lynn mattingly said...

Hi sweetie!

Thanks for joining us in our HUGE vintage Yaya give-a-way! Love your blog and I know exactly what you mean "going back to bed and starting over day". LOL Glad to see your humor in the day...loved it! xo...deb

Winchester Manor said...

Hi June,

Your teacup is lovely...what's not to love?'s soft, delicate and for pete's sake it has pink roses. It's a winner in my book.

Oh goodness...there have been plenty of mishaps in our world's lately. I guess we are the Grace Sisters! When I get those ruffled knickers...I'll get you some padded

Tomorrow is another day full of hope and hopefully less mishaps!

Hugs and love to you sweet friend!

Unknown said...

Oh June, well thank goodness you're okay...that sounds scary to fall like that!!! I hope your weekend goes MUCH better for you :)

I love Mira's blog...and your tea cup is so wonderful!!! Good luck winning!

Hugs ~

:) T

Debby said...

Hi June, hoping this finds you feeling okay, it does sound like a stay in bed kinda day. Your teacup is pretty.

The Green Pea said...

Oh June, I hope you did not hurt yourself in the fall. Sorry to hear you had a ruff day. I did love your tea cup, the bottom of it is so cute and detailed. I hope you win...sandi

joanne said...

Oh Junebug, when you go bad you really do it big time..;p You could have really been hurt there OMGosh you silly thing~~you are going to feel it tomorrow! It's an age thing you know. All kidding aside, I am so glad that you didn't get hurt, falls can be b.a.d. Take care and have a good weekend, let's not paint for awhile o.k.?

Pondside said...

Well, June I hope you're none the worse for the fall and the jury summons, but my advice to you is to make a nice cup of tea, pour it into that sweet tea cup and head straight for a chair for the remainder of the weekend. Let's not tempt fate!

Connie said...

Trying out for the next Olympics, chick?!?! I know it isn't funny but when you tell it, it just sounds so...uh....well, dumb, sugar. I know, I know, I've done the same thing only on ladders. Maybe you should stay in bed tomorrow, huhhhh?!?!

Lisa said...

Oh June,
That IS a really bad day, I hope your booty is better! I don't know if this makes you feel any better but I spent the day at the doctor too. My triplets all have strep throat...ugggh! Guess you know what I'll be doing all weekend. Lisa

Ann Marie said...

I love your tea cup!
I don't know how Mira is going to choose.. because there are so many lovely pictures out there!

My favorite isn't pretty.. but it's sentimental.. so I love it among all of the others. It's how I found my Great Grandmother. :)

Sorry about Jury Duty.. your fall.. the shots.. and thick paint.

Hope that tomorrow the sun will be shining and something good will come your way... XO

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

So you get those kind of days too... well I had a frustrating day as well. My gosh June your heart must of almost gave out ... eeeh what a feeling not having anything there.... Big Oops I'm just glad your alright. You know when these things happen, you just gotta laugh and you certainly made me feel good that I'm not the only one that does crazy things on top of the things you can't control. I'm sure tomorrow will be a better day!!

Hey I think you have a good chance of winning, I'm going over there right now to check it out.

Your a Doll~

Seawashed said...

You poor thing. ((hug)) You are very lucky you were not hurt from such a angel must of been there to break the fall for you. I'm so glad you were not hurt. Though some aches and bruises may appear within these next few days. So I've never heard of a B12 defficiency like yours, but I do know B12 is very important...especially for women.

Your tea cup(s)is lovely. I think it has a good chance of winning!

Pony Girl said...

Oh I love this post! :) And I thought I had a bad day, LOL! Mine was a doozie. I seriously have had days like this- too often lately! I am sorry Murphy's law seemed to be in full effect for you! At least you are okay, and it's the weekend, so let's hope sunny times are ahead!
p.s love your pink floral tea cup! I enjoy finding them at the local thrift shops, miss-matched ones are the best!

Yvonne - Frl. Klein said...

Dear June your teacups are beautiful!!!
Today I would also stay in bed with pleasure, but, unfortunately, it is not possible.
Have a nice weekend,

oldgreymare said...

Sounds like you were going to have a pain in your #$@ no matter what today. Did you check your horoscope for tomorrow? Staying in bed may be advised. You will most likely have a nice purple bulls eye for the nurse's needle to aim for.

So sorry June :-(

Avoid barstools and bicycles....Ouch!


LiLi M. said...

What a story! Ouch, I can feel it too! But when you tell it it even sounds a bit funny, but of course it isn't. Oh some days....just stay in bed and read a few lovely magazines or better a romantic book that won't tempt you to paint or do something. I love that teacup! It reminds me of my grandmother. I love the tiny roses.
Have a lovely weekend June and take care!





Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh June,
You poor thing...what a day. Isn't it strange how days go like that, sometimes ? I hope that you are O.K. I always stand on chairs and lean across and, I shouldn't really. I should get the little step ladder.I bet your family told you off for standing on the vanity.!!
Anyway, I expect a nice cup of tea out of one of your pretty cups would have made you feel better. I don't see why you can't win with that pretty cup (and I love the 'made in Germany tactic!!! haha) I said that I was going to take a picture of a teacup and post it when I went over to Mira's. I must try and do that today although, I don't think any of mine will win but, it's fun, joining in.
Hope that your weekend is a bit more uneventful, June. XXXX

Claudia said...

Oh no! The dreaded jury summons. And a fall! Yes, I definitely have had days like that. On the other hand, that teacup is sure sweet - what a lovely, simple design around the rim. I really love it!

Take care and here is hoping today is a better day!


Rie said...

Hi there! I posted about our blind daughter today... thought you might appreciate it.

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

ewwww June.
The stars just weren't aligned for you were they?
Maybe it was just meant for you to stay in bed all day afterall. I'm glad you are not hurt, but somehow I have a feeling that when you woke up this morning, you were just a tad sore than you were yesterday. Don't worry, I'll be hoping that your jury summons date is not the same day as your Dr. appointment day! If it were, I think that would just top it off!!!
Maybe you ought to just stay in bed again today in fear of a another bad do know that they do run in three's, don't you?

The Pink Birdhouse said...

oh my gosh, June, that day is about as bad as they come!! The real icing on the cake was the jury summons. i am so glad that they do not have that here in germany, I am safe! Hope your backside is feeling better, and glad to hear that you did not get hurt. I dread the thought of me ever falling, you know, the bigger they come the harder they fall and all! And bad knees to make even worse. Yikes.

I did not have a bad day like you, but of late I feel like just staying in bed. a good word for the reason behind it, MOTHERHOOD BURNOUT. I feel like the mama bird who would like to push the birdies from the side of the nest to teach them how to fly,since fly they must!! Oh my, I am in a mood of late, I hope it is only temporary!! hugs to you dear friend, stay safe!! debby

Elzie said...

What a wonderful blog I found here, thanks to Forever vintage's winning. I just loved watching your garden on the later posts. Will certainly visit you again.
Hope you have a great weekend, and I wish I had won that gift, lol.
Love from Elzie in Sweden

Barbara said...

Not such a great day, June. First a fall and then a jury duty summons? I would definitely go back to bed and hope the "comes in threes" thing doesn't happen! Or perhaps missing the doctor counts as the third?
I fell against a tiled vanity last year and broke a rib. So make sure you are OK.

Your teacup is lovely...the best ones are found at yard sales and second hand shops! I'll go check out Mira now.

LemonyRenee' said...

(((June))) What a day you had! And you still had the grace to come and leave me such a lovely comment. I hope you're not too sore today and that things perk up.

Love the teacup, too. I think you would be tough competition in a thing like that. You just have a "way."

Jane said...

Glad to hear you didn't get hurt from the fall.
Your teacup is very pretty and the photo of it is perfect.


My dear June, I had to laugh reading your Cup-Story... I like your little Rose Cup don't think I am looking for something too awesome, I am looking for different things, the cup, the story and how the people made their pictures... So let's wait and see, it will be very hard to make my decision, cause there are soooo many nice cups and so dear stories... Wish you a nice weekend and a perfect day in bed ;) hugs & kisses, Mira!

Carole said...

Sometimes it does seem like there are forces working against you!
Sit back and have a nice cup of tea with those beautiful teacups and all your troubles will float away
..... that always seems to help me!

Anonymous said...

Oh nooooooo! This is all too much un-fun! Glad you weren't hurt in the fall - I did a few like that when we built our house. But jury summons? Now that's just painful.
Treat yourself to some happy things this weekend, June!!!
Sending hugs,

My name is Riet said...

Oh you poor thing June. It must hurt terribly, hopefully everything will be alright tomorrow. Yes these things happen, mostly come in threes. LOl I have had my days too. Have a good sleep and wake up well tomorrow. Oh I am sure that lovely cup of yours will win.

Weisser Traum said...

oh ich wünsche dir einen erholsamen sonntag. und gute besserung. das kenne ich leider auch...lande manchmal am boden und staune weil ich nicht mehr weiss warum. bekomme auch alle 4 wochen spritzen in den rücken. im moment geniesse ich das wunderschöne wetter. die rosentasse wäre auch mein vavorit. sei lieb gegrüsst daniela

Lori said...

June, i think Mira has to pick you now after the bad day you had yesterday...and anyhoo, your teacup is totally charming...and beautifully photographed...i think your chances are very good to win:)

FrenchGardenHouse said...

June, I hope by now your body is back to feeling fine! And your day is glorious today. I always love visiting you here. Your cup is just beautiful, I love the roses. And what makes her extra special is that you love her. {I know all the other cups are jealous!}

Rebecca Nelson said...

Girly...I have had days like this...

And...I know all about P.Anemia. I was in the hospital for it when I was 4 and it never goes away. It can cause heart trouble years later. Did you know that?

I hope you are doing better. If I lived by I'd bring you soup and hot buttered muffins. I'd even paint your bathroom if you'd let me.

Love to you. Glad you like my header. Me, too!


Anonymous said...

Oh dear, that is one bad day Miss Junie-bird. Amazing you weren't seriously hurt! Maybe you weren't drinking at the time but I'm thinking now would be a good time to start lol - you are going to be one sore lady.

Love your sweet little teacup! You can't go wrong with pink roses in my book - I say June wins :)

{oc cottage} said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh a teacup post, you say...if I did this it would take days to read! I was so happy admiring all your lovely cups...then you said those words...ewww...jd...I can't even say them...they give me such a headache...and I know if I speak them aloud, there will be one in my mailbox too...I don't think I will go out and get my mail today...ewwww...
Hope your today was better than your yesterday!

Laura @ 52 FLEA said...

Oh my poor dear June!
Enjoy your day in bed deserve it! I love your teacup and am going to decide on my favorite tomorrow! Hope you are not too sore and glad you weren't seriously hurt! Take care,
Laura :)

Anonymous said...

So did you get to stay in bed as planned?? My plan never do turn out quite the way I wish but always good to have a plan they say!

Your cup is lovely! I have so many I don't know which one I would end up choosing!!

Got to see my sisters and am off tomorrow for a week to babysit for some friends up in Northern Co while they are at a conference for 6 days

Always love coming by your lovely blog June! I have been so lax in my blogging- just not enough time for all the things I love to do along with all the things that MUST get done (the must list is usually not the same as the love list for some reason!)


Vicki said...

Oh, June, I am sorry you had that fall! You will probably be sore for a few days. Yes, I think we have all had these kind of days and then to be summoned for jury duty, yikes!! On a more positive note, I love that sweet tea cup! Anything covered in roses always gets my vote. Hope you win! Sending much love to you! Vicki

Ann said...

Dear June,

I am so sorry you fell, and hope you weren't hurt! I can relate to those "wanting to stay in bed" days! :)

As far as your jury summons goes, I will say that I was summoned for duty once and it ended up being a really great experience! We were trying a civil suit and it was so interesting! We had a great group of jurors and I met one of my best friends on this jury. So, you never know... You could be involved in a very interesting case too!

I hope you're having a good weekend!



Sit A Spell said...

Hi, I have enjoyed my first visit here. Your tea cup caught my eye and I just had to check out your blog. I am an avid tea drinker and have tons of tea cups and mugs in all shapes and sizes. Yours is quiet lovely.

So sorry you took a tumble. I hope you'll be feel fine sooner than later.

Rostrose said...

>>Oh sweety, that sounds very "ouch"!!! I hope the rest of your weekend was much better! Your teacup is so pretty - I love it!
Hugs, Traude

Sorry to hear about your fall June, not nice.Hope you are relaxing now with a bit of tea in your gorgeous teacup.I love it, its sweet and the roses are so pretty.

Driving 60 miles to a DR. should be considered a crime,LOL.Seriosuly thats so far and no one even called you to inform you he wasnt there?? Uncalled for, I wouldnt have the patience for that,I would find someone else.Bu then again thats just me.

I hope you dont wake up stiff and sore.By the way I had anemia when I was young, but now as I got older no sign of it.Dont evny you getting those shots they are an OUCH for sure,lol.

Happy sunday to you June,Hugs back!

Maison Beldecor said...

Dear June,
sorry to hear about your fall, I'm glad that you are ok and hope you have not hurt so bad. My mum also have the same illness, so you can imagine that I know how do you feel sometime, I hope you can get your B12 shot soon.
Your cup is really romantic and sooo rosy... Even I post my old cup...
Wishing you a good time
Warm hugs

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Oh JUNIE...... I'm so happy you're ok....that was a NASTY fall....You poor thing. We're girlies and we always have forty three six ninety seven things on our minds, right? I can't tell you how many times I've been out shopping, patiently waiting for a lady to move out of the aisle so I could get through....she'll be so engrossed in the decision between Skippy and Jiff she won't even have noticed I'm standing there..... I laugh, because I do the same thing! I'm glad you weren't HOLDING the paint bucket during your untimely descent.'d better get back in to get your B12 shot....We can't have sick Junie!..... Those are some pretty serious side effects.

Sending you huge huggies sweet one!

Laura said...

Oh June-
As I read I was thinking-
Oh No
Then I was laughing
Then I was thinking Oh no-

I hope you are OK.
I can relate to everything that happened-
and yes, I would take a nap.

(Now I am laughing again).


The Victorian Parlor said...

Oh June,

I hope your day got better! Your tea cup is lovely! I'll have to check out this blog-I love seeing teacups:).



stefanie said...

oh, I hope you win...its gorgeous!

Paula said...

Dear June,

I love your teacup! It is so beautiful! I love pink roses and love to collect (and use!) old dishes with pink roses on them. You have a lovely collection. I hope you win the giveaway!

I love the pillow you made in your previous post! You did a beautiful job! You won some lovely things! I am so happy for you!

Love, Paula

Debra@CommonGround said...

June, I hope by now your feeling better and not sore. Some days are just those kind of days, blah. I hate it when I get off my schedule.
I love the teacups and went over to Belle Blanc and joined up, and did a teacup post. really sweet fun.
p.s. hope your dresser is OK, too!

Anne Lorys said...

Ouch June, bless your heart!

For my money, flea market and thrift store china is the best, much more character!

Have a wonderful week!

A Southern Rose said...

Poor thing! I hope you are feeling better. I do stuff like that all of the time! I feel pretty stupid afterwards. I'm just very clumsy...I always have been. Oh and my doctor wants to start giving me those shots. Suppose to help me with my energy level or something. Hope it works. I need all of the help that I can get.

Take care,
Lee Laurie

P.S.Very pretty teacup!

wendy said...

Well after ALL that, I think that darling little tea cup needs to be put to use...perhaps with a titch of something a little stronger. (tee,hee)


Lovey said...

Oh June...I'm glad you're more of that...get some rest, drink some tea...thank God for miracles and quick Jury Duties! Smiles

susan said...

Get in bed and pull the covers up! Some days are just like that. I think it's God's way of telling us we need a rest. He does have a sense of humor :) Hope you are feeling better and not too sore!

J. Wecker Frisch said...

Wow June, sorry to hear about the discomfort and fall etc. Must be the full moon or "some other force." I have just had three days in a row of similar but unprecedented circumstances. Stay comfy and be comforted.

Unknown said...

G'morn, June ~ I love your sweet German teacup. This pattern was one of our biggest sellers in our shop.

You are such a kick ... what a day for you.

I am sorry you have a B-12 issue. May I add my two cents? I, too, have the same anemia issues as do you ... I was taking shots monthly for years. One day I asked my Dr. if I could just take B-12 pills daily ... he thought for a bit & said we could try it with a close monitor for a couple months ... I have never had to take shots since, just the pill daily. I also don't miss the high's & low's of the B-12 shots.

I always get such joy visiting with you, hope today is a better one.

Have a wonderful week.
TTFN, Hugs ~ Marydon

Betty Jo said...

What a gorgeous cup! I so love your photos. I'm glad I'm not the one deciding on the cup photo for this giveaway. I'd never be able to make a decision. ♥

Tracey McBride ~ Frugal Luxuries® said...

Your teacups are absolutely enchanting June!! To me, they are even more pretty because you gathered them from yard sales and thrift shops as one~and~lonelies!! Now they are like a group of beloved children, fostered and appreciated!!
P.S. Hope you're recovering nicely from the fall...I did a similar thing when I had to climb atop our refrigerator to clean! It was more than a week ago~~my bruise has faded but is still visible (a very pretty pale green...but I'd much rather have it on a pillow or plate than my calve!:)

Peonies & Magnolias said...

Oh June, I hope all your aches and pains are gone by now and you have a wonderful week. Beautiful teacup.


Ana said...

Oh June, I'm sorry you had such a rough day. I'm just glad you didn't get too banged up. I have certainly had my share of those days. Hang in there, tomorrow is another day my dear friend. Sending you a huge "I hope today is a better day" hug. Happy 1st day of March.

Hugs and Kisses,

Rita said...

What a day you had my poor dear June. Certainly one to remember. Hope you are feeling alright now despite the fall, and after all, not getting your B12 shot turned out to be a blessing for your poor rear end.
some days can go like that... everything seems to go wrong! Thank God there are bright ones too.
and on to a brighter note I love your roses decor teacup. it's right my style. and the light blue one with a rose decor on the inside is also lovely.
have a great week

Reading Tea Leaves said...

Oh June you poor thing! I'm relieved to hear you suffered no serious damage from your fall.

Your post started off so lovely and gentle with your gorgeous tea-cups, I really didn't expect all that bad news. Bless your heart.
Sorry to hear about the shots you have to take, I'm wondering if a daily pill wouldn't work just as well...
I think you have more than a good chance of winning with that little beauty of a teacup June. Fingers crossed!

A Fanciful Life said...

Oh my gosh... that certainly was one of those days to stay in bed! Thank goodness you did not injure yourself as that could have been a very bad accident. So actually, this was your lucky day afterall!

Hope you are doing OK..your teacup is beautiful~

Vicki's Bit-o-earth said...

Oh June, you and I definitely had the same kind of day! I won't go into mine here, but trust me... it matched your pretty close! As for your tea cup... I'd vote for it! Love the pink roses~ Vicki

Andrea at My Feathered Nest said...

Oh no! A jury summons! That's awful...but I guess that it could have been a subpeona! lol
As you know, I've been working on my bathroom walls since before Christmas. I had to stand on the sink and vanity and toilet to paint and put up border. I didn't feel as graceful as I used to and worried that I was going to fall over onto the floor. Just from the dizziness of being up high. At 54, I find that I am not the gal I used to be who climbed trees!!
I've got some more of that pudding paint at my house if you need any!

Muggensteekjes said...

Ooooh dear June, what a day.Hope you are allright now or is it still hurting. Love your tea cups with all the lovely flowers, I think you are going to win this give-away. And did you start painting again or does it has to wait for a while (few
Take care,hugs Ingrid.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi June, so sorry to hear about your day. I hate days that start off on the wrong foot. It happens to all of us at one time or another. Glad to hear that you are well and were only stunned and possibly bruised by the fall. I love your little teacup. Especially the blue one on it side with the painted roses on the inner lip. So lovely. All your rosettes in the previous post are gorgeous as are all the wonderful items you received in the giveaways. Lucky you! Jury summons. Boo! Wishing you all the best and hoping for much better days ahead. Blessings, Tammy

Hi! Just wanted to drop by to say hi. Weather is great today, sunny as can be and in the 40's, quite fabulous after this long winter and then the storm over the weekend.

p.s. I am sooo forgetful, I wanted to comment on your rosette pillows. Oh my gosh, those are just the cutest things I have ever seen, and I mean that with all my heart. I have been wanting to make some new pillows for our couch, and now I know just what to do with them. You would think a ribbonworker like me would have thought of rosettes for pillows a long time ago! PERFECT IDEA and I have some new laces that I could use that would be perfect for them. You are so creative my dear friend. hugs again, Debby

June amor, I LOVE your cup and you know what??? most of mine came to my posession in the same way...yardsales, thifting and antique mall...years ago before the prices flew out the roof :) Now amor I hope you have been resting and are feeling many times I have done something like this I can't the last time I was on the tall step stool reaching for something in the kitchen and w/o thinking walked right off the top step when I got what I was looking for...thank goodness someone was home, cause I honestly sat and cried lol felt like I was hurt that bad...was even worse the next morning...hope that wasn't the case with you and btw...the bebe dolls are taken me to you...ha! ha! :) besos, Rose

ps...instead of the monthy b12 shot can you take them daily sublingual? I have to have the montly shot too and haven't in over 3 months...guess that is why everytime someone coughs or sneezes..I get it lol but let me know, I can send you the b12 sublinguals they work great...I am just too lazy to take them everyday and just so you need to find a new nurse to give you that shot...cause mine has NEVER hurt, only my pride from given someone my cheek so to speak :)

Bless your heart. You did have a rough day! I hope all is better by now. XOXO

I laughed at your jurors summons. You don't know how bad I want to be picked for a jury. I love watching all the stuff on TRU TV and would love to be in the middle of it all. But they never send me an invite. Darn my luck! Hehehe...most that have served tell me I am lucky!

Oh June, What a day! I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself too badly falling from the vanity! Driving 30 miles just for a shot - I hardly can imagine that. I used to get B12 shots for a couple of years until last summer. Then the parameter was pretty good and we stopped it. I should have a check soon if it's still o.k. I only need 2 minutes by car to go to the doctor but I hated it anyway to go there every 6 weeks.
Good luck for the jury summons!
