Proof

Paul went to the library and the thrift shop yesterday, and came back with proof of his love:

Interesting/pretty china, and a book about sociopaths.
Yeah baby.

A saucer that is actually big enough to hold cookies! GENIUS.

Suzanne said...

I have that EXACT TEACUP AND SAUCER. Would you be interested in having it, so you will then have a set? Because I have a, uh, lot of them I've collected and rarely use.

Nicole said...

What a great husband! Love the giant saucer.

Oh, man! I LOVE "tea and biscuit" sets! I have some Japanese ones that are wooden, that my great-grandma brought back from Japan in the 50s and I have some American style molded glass sets from my grandma, that were better suited for cake and punch.

Fun! You've got a great husband!

How cute :) And how sweet of your husband.

Hope you enjoy your tea and your sociopaths! (kind of weird to write that!)

Leeann said...

Omg! The saucer! Room for a snack too= pure genius! Love it!

I covet that tea cup. I need two of them so that my daughter and I can have afternoon snack together.

Suzanne- YOU HAVE A COLLECTION?? You should totally do a POST on them!! I will link to it! I am FASCINATED with these things I hadn't realized existed! THANK YOU for the offer of a twin to mine! I had to think it over for a lonnnng time, and then thought no, I think I want it to be My One Set From Paul. But now I like the idea that you and I are teacup/saucer-set twins! You have to use yours now!

Love the tea cup and I've read that book and loved it. Very illuminating. We'll see if you are as weird as I after you've finished it. I diagnosed everyone I met for about a month later. ALL Sociopaths..what are the chances ?

Very, very nice Paul!!

Emily said...

Nice husband move! Let us know how the book is.

Suburban Correspondent said...

I do not EVER want to read that book.

Maureen said...

I love the cup and saucer set. Could you tell me who the maker is?

Swistle said...

Maureen- It says "Nantucket Home" and "made in China" on the bottom.

Mrs. Irritation said...

Clearly he's trying to get into your pants with such a suave maneuver!

Misty said...

My boss read that book a couple years ago and now quotes it incessantly. But perhaps your life might have less cause to discuss psycopathy...

Jenny said...

Wow, that's so Miss Marple: tea and biscuits and psychopaths. Nice!

artemisia said...

AWESOME! That is sweet. Also? That saucer is perfect. It can hold a tiny scone!

Karen L said...

lovely. I wasn't aware of "tea and biscuit" saucers. I was imagining tea and teabag and teaspoon. either way, lovely.

nicely done Paul, though it probably doesn't quite make up for 1/3 = 0.33333...

Love that Paul!

What a great tea cup & saucer!
