I (Heart) This Teacup
This is the teacup that almost got away. One Saturday last month, a girlfriend and I went on a long overdue shopping day and happened upon this antique mall in Decatur named Kudzu, only because I'd taken a wrong turn trying to find my way back home. I found this adorable teacup with a heart-shaped interior, and even though it wasn't that expensive, I thought I could probably find it cheaper elsewhere. Turns out I couldn't. I Googled, I trolled eBay, but the closest I came was a plain white version of this set, which simply wouldn't do now that I knew a floral set existed.
So over the weekend, when I had to go back to Atlanta anyway, I made a brief sidetrip back to the antique mall, back to the booth, back to the shelf ... and at first I didn't see it! (You antiquers know that feeling I'm talking about!) But lo and behold, it was on the shelf below, and I learned my lesson: if you see that one-of-a-kind piece and know you won't be able to live without it, save yourself some trouble (and gasoline), and go ahead and get it!
