Teacup Thursday, Prince William's Birthday

Hi there and welcome to my blog cottage! I am joining Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser, Vintage Thingie Thursday with Colorado Lady and  Share Your Cup with Mrs. Olson.

But first...Happy Birthday to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge who is 30 today.

This is one of the photos by Mario Testino made for the wedding in 2011. I really love it!  

And so my cup and saucer today is actually a mug that was made for the engagement of William and Catherine in 2010.

 I think that's a great photo of them as well.

Today was a gorgeous day here on the Olympic Peninsula, so we decided to take a ride out to the Salt Creek Recreation area on the Strait of Juan De Fuca. I will be posting my photos for Pink Saturday on Friday...I have to download and organize them. It was one of the days that make me so gratedul that we leave near the coast. 

Have a great day and visit the other wonderful blogs.
