I let Rebecca pick out her own cup and saucer, with instructions to choose from the crockery in the bottom cupboard of my china cabinet. This cup does have a matching saucer, but Rebecca found this orphaned saucer first and was immediately attracted to the pierced, lacy, edging and thick, gold rim.
I told her, "That's okay. The cup and saucer don't have to match."
"I know. I think it's more fun that way."
She also offered me the remains of her toaster pastry when I told her I was taking a picture.
"Here, Mom. It will look prettier with this,"
and placed the gooey morsel on the saucer.
She is very wise for a 6 1/2 year old.
We should all have a guest photo stylist come to tea occasionally.
