Hi Allison,
Love the Zombie teacup (cute post title!) and mango tea - yum! About your tag, I'm with you on the Discovery Channel oh and the fruit too, now watermelon is sounding very good.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog about Gigi (the cat that our neighbors left behind). I am so with you on no tolerance towards that... it all comes back. She's a sweetheart and the most trusting of all our cats - lucky Zeke another one to watch over.

Congrats on your award - so deserved.

Have a great weekend... love all the things you don't want to do, I won't even go there myself right now ;)

congratulations on your teacup!

I'm jealous you get to go to the rose bowl flea market

Karen said...

What a cute post. I love, love the new teacup, SPOON and the HANKIE!!!! Very cute. And the tag was fun. I Like them because we get to know a little bit more about people that participate. But I just did one, so, my readers might be bored to tears if I did another. LOL.
If you like the RoseBowl flea market, I understand alot of the same vintage vendors are at the PCC one too. If you go, let me know. It's the first Sun of each month. I want to go to the Vintage one in .. . is it Irvine or Tustin? Can't remember what day it is.
Love your award!
Girl, your birthday is right around the corner! WHOO HOO!!!!! My youngest will turn 21 in Dec!. WOW!
Have a great day!

Hi Allison,
Great prizes! Can't believe that's a hankie, how fancy! UCSD isn't out yet? Well, it's almost over and then you can sleep in. Good luck on finals! BTW, my cousins and I are planning a thrift shopping day in San Diego soon. Do you recommend any thrift shops in SD? I know you're from Orange county, are there any out there worth going to? I'm on a mission this summer, too!

What a great giveaway you won! How fun. Everything is so pretty. Lucky girl!

Hey, I lived in Chino Hills and Aliso Viejo too before!

Oh, I'm going ghost hunting in San Juan on the 27th. Sorry I didn't get around to answering your question sooner.

I also got my last thrift store finds at the Goodwill on Bristol and Warner.

YOU LIKE HOUSE?! I love that show, I had a dream that I was dating House and he gave me a piggyback ride through the hospital. Obviously the leg thing was a non-issue in dreamland.

Let's watch it together when I see you! :)

I do have a small collection of teacups. The one you won is adorable I love it and the teaspoon. That was a sweet giveaway to win...

:::insert wild applause::: Tea cup looks FABULOUS! Yay...I'm so glad it made it to you (and in one piece. Phew! ;-) I was having computer/work/life (LOL!) issues so I'm sorry I couldn't visit you & the little cup earlier. It looks fabulous and I'm so glad it's with you!
