Lynn from The Vintage Nest let me borrow this poem from her blog. I loved it so much I wanted to share it with all of you. I think you will enjoy it. Thank you Lynn.

Heaven's Grocery Store

I was walking down life's highway a long time ago,
One day I saw a sign that read "Heaven's Grocery Store." As I got a little closer, the door came open wide.
And when I came to myself, I was standing there inside.

I saw a host of angels, they were standing everywhere, One handed me a basket and said, "My child shop with care.
Everything I needed was in that grocery store
And all you couldn't carry, you could come back for more.
First, I got some patience, love was in the same row, Further down was understanding, you need that wherever you go.
I got a box or two of wisdom and a bag or two of faith,
I just couldn't miss the Holy Ghost, for it was all over the place.

I stopped to get some strength and courage, to help me run the race.
By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed some grace.
I didn't forget salvation, for salvation, that was free,
So I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me. Then I started up to the counter to pay my grocery bill, For I thought I had everything to do my Master's will.

As I went up the aisle, I saw prayer and I just had to put that in.
For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.
Peace and joy were all plentiful, they were on the last shelf.
Song and praises were hanging near, so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel, "Now how much do I owe
He just smiled and said, "Just take them everywhere you go."
Again, I smiled at him and said, "How much do I owe?" He smiled again and said, "My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."

I just love all of the amazing things you can create with vintage teacups. Especially tucking little treasures inside them. You can make wall pockets, hanging birds nests, pincushions, floral arrangements, and more. The only limits are your imaginations.

Here is what I have been up to with my vintage teacups.

Vintage English bone china teacups are filled with pink paper roses, pearls, 1800s crystals, feathers, rhinestones, vintage millinery, glitter and topped with my "original" Pink Fairy with her beautiful sequined and glittered wings. Always "ONE-OF-A-KIND" treasures from
"The Pink Fairy Cottage". Enjoy!
