My Place and Yours-Your favourite cup

Once again I am joining in with My Place and Yours which is now residing with the lovely Deb at Works in Progress.  Deb asks what is our favourite cup and I recently did a post about something similar for another Meme JaM but not to worry because yesterday I was reminded of what really is my favourite cup!
Yesterday I headed off to the Tallangatta Festival to sell my wares at their Market. It is about an hour away from where I live and also the place where my wonderful friend Lindy lives. A quick email during the week got her looking in her shed for a table, some sort of shade and chairs which saved me trying to work out how I was going to fit that sort of thing in my car and also saved me from going through my shed. A bit of a hiccup was getting her out of bed early on a Saturday morning but she loves me so was reluctantly willing to do that too. Once I got to her house at just a bit after 8am it was definitely cuppa time and a quick chat before heading to the centre of town and setting up. Her lovely husband and eldest son turned up to give us a bit of a hand too which was a bonus.
It wasn't a very busy day and I didn't make my fortune but I had one of the best days I've had for a long time, sitting and chatting  and drinking tea and coffee. No matter how long between visits we easily pick up where we left off last time and fall into the familiar pattern of a friendship that started about 35 years ago.
So what is my favourite cup? It is the one that I share with my very best friend. It may be in one of our homes drinking from china cups or sitting in a park sipping from a plastic Take Away cup. It doesn't matter what the cup is like but the person you are sharing the moment with.

Love your setup! Those dolls of yours are to drool over. And the quilts are so pretty with the sun lighting them up. I love the shows too - just the experience is worth it! ~*~Lisa

It is truly a wonderful sentiment Jackie! and oh so true, and how lucky you were to be able to do so with your bestie again.
Wonder if the Crows will ever get to meet up finally over one of those same type cups, like we've all wanted to do for so long? You never know..... :)
Your stall looks great, and your dolls do too, sitting there lined up welcoming everyone into the space! lol. x

Oh how true! where would we be without our dear friends to share a cuppa with.

Thanks so much for joining Jackie and for telling me about the linky problem. I thought noone loved me, but then after you emailed me found them hiding on the linky site. Something about running something like this brings all my insecurities crawling out of the woodwork. I've fixed the link thingy and it's working now. I put the wrong piece of code in. I hope you do join in again.

I really love the sentiment about how it doesn't matter what we drink out of, but who we drink it with.

Your market stall looks great. Hope there wasn't too much wind, it can play havoc with setups and tents.
