So, this cute little cup generated surprisingly big feelings.
I heard everything from “love that cup!” to “I want a cookie NOW. RIGHT NOW.”
Agreed. It says high tea, and Grandma’s sideboard, and you know, it does say gimme two oatmeal chocolate chip cookies RIGHT NOW. And that handle! Just looking at it makes me roll out scones and sit up straight. There is even a painful backstory involving frozen scones, QVC and the Mall of America, but…another day.
A few clues. I got this cup and saucer:
…on a U.S. road trip, but it’s not U.S.-made.
…somewhere ‘everything old is new again’
…a place where you see the sunny side of life.
The answer may surprise you. I’ve had them for years and it still surprises me.
What – a prize? You want all this sly talk and a prize, too? Greedy, greedy, but here’s the deal – if you can correctly identify where I collected these lovelies, I will mail you an extra-tacky postcard from Lawrence, Kansas with the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe on the back. Wow! That’s way better than big cash money, eh?
It’s a place you buy things, not a city, but extra chocolate chips to the genius who gets the city too. I won’t confirm the answer until tomorrow morning, so you may guess as many times as you like, and all correct guesses win the recipe. I might just print the recipe anyway, but don’t tell the others.
The recipe, not the cookies. They live a very short, delicious life.
