Wacky Tea Cup

I know,
I know,
I have a thing for
tea cups.
But when I saw
this one,
I couldn't help

Me, Jess, and Nel
have delighted in the
Dr. Seuss quotes
our whole life.

His whimsical and
quirky phrases
have humored us
many a day.

Here's a picture of
Nel and Jess
playing along when
they were kids.

"So the writer who breeds
more words than he needs,
is making a chore
for the reader who reads."

Do you have a
favorite Dr. Seuss

oH HOW i LOVE teacups and mugs
I have quite the collection
but for now they are all boxed up.
We just moved to my hubby's ancestral home and I'm so busy with the renovation so much to do but I'm very excited and enjoying everything. As for your inquiry whether I'm back for good in blogging I can't say right now but I'm visiting my fave blogs once in a while and try to keep in touch however my post will still be sporadic I'm afraid.

Have a wonderful day!

Susan said...

Hi Sheri...ha hah ahhaha Dr. Seuss' quotes are the pizazz. He really had a unique sense of humor.

Love your new teacup. Susan

Deserae said...

That is just sooooo cute!!! I don't have a favorite quote, I may need to borrow one :o)

In the kitchen - you know those within reach (of hands and smiles) - I only have wacky tea cups. I like to open the door and smile instantly... sometimes as soon as I reach the cup it's over, sometimes it lasts until the last drop.
That cabinet is so boring - beige plates, normal glasses... the only thing that "doesn't suit" are those mugs. I love it! Like a private joke between me and the mugs... sometimes shared with the person that gave it to me... and now you.
A quote... a quote... oh the pressure ;)... well, because it suits this lovely (and funny) post (and YOU!):

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Dr. Seuss

That tea cup is amazing. My fiancee is trying to get me to switch from coffee to tea. It's a process :-)

Musings, Tea, and Me said...

Hi (again) Sheri! Thanks for visiting my blog today. I figured I better circle back and leave you my comment here as well as on my blog just so you don't miss out.

Glad you loved my post! I'm flattered you asked permission to share it...Sure, you may, as long as you agree to put my name with it and ask anyone you share it with to do the same. You might want to read my earlier post on a book drawing that ends memoir! You have only to follow my post and leave me acomment to count you in the drawing.
Warmly, Vickie

Susie said...

Sheri, I love that you share those fun things with your girls. My girls and I are always quoting movie lines to each other , some times till I want to pee my pants. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Oh dear, I am still learning about Dr. Seuss. Daughter introduced us to those stories when we first came over but I never could warm up to it. On the other hand, she knows every quote by heart and still finds it one of the best children books ever.
Happy Summer Dear and enjoy a cuppa in your new mug!

I cannot think of a quote off the top of my head, but I cannot count the times I have read Green Eggs and Ham to the children...

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Sheri,

Love your cup, such fun!
We bought all the Dr Seuss books for the kids and used to read them every night to them.
Hope you are enjoying the week

What a FUN mug. Love the pale blue color too.

Sola Scriptura said...

What a great mug! I love Dr. Seuss quotes too. It's too difficult for me to pick a favorite!

Patricia said...

We love Dr Seuss in this house too, and often quote some of the lines. After keeping our children's books all these years, we are now reading them to our grandson.
My favourite was the ABC book, with such gems as 'Big Y, little y, A yawning yellow yak. Young Yolanda Yorgenson is yelling on his back!!

Mary Palumbo Collings said...

So many memories of reading Dr Seuss stories at bedtime ( or anytime) with Priscilla, very fun ! Don't think we had a favorite… we just love them all.
Your teacup is as cute as the stories and all of the rhymes Sheri!

Very cool tea cups, it makes drinking tea so much more interesting.

Kristie said...

I love all of Dr. Seuss's quote's and your tea cup is adorable! I collect creamers and jugs of various sizes and know I have enough but still can't help myself when I see one I LOVE!

Hope you are staying cool and enjoying the summer. It is hot and humid here not good for me but good for my ferns and other plants! LOL

Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie said...

That is a great cup! I can't remember a particular quote that I like, but I remember reading these books to my children. I think I can remember one that went 'A cat is a cat, and that is that.' The chocolates look so yummy. xo Karen
