pretty song friday

Do you collect those little figurines in the Red Rose tea boxes? I do. The tea makes decent iced tea, and you can’t beat the price. I wouldn’t buy it if they didn’t have the figurine in the box, though. The “prize” in the carton for adults.

They’ve released a new series, called American Heritage. My first “prize” in the box was a little White House. I’m so glad I got it–I bet it ends up being the hardest one to find.screen-shot-2016-09-21-at-8-11-54-pm

But then I visit the website and see you can buy past releases. D’oh! There’s two from the Calendar Year series I don’t have — the Christmas tree and the Easter bunny. Wouldn’t those be the two you really want? But they’re sold out of those ones, so I’ll have to look at antique stores and flea markets.

I’m excited to collect the new series. I’ll be buying a lot of tea.🙂 I’ll bet I end up with 5 of the Tea Box figurines — which to me is the least-exciting figurine. I understand *Why* it’s part of American Heritage, but I don’t know, a bald eagle would make a better figurine.

I’m glad they have a new collection. I was getting pretty tired of opening a box and finding a Mariner’s Hat in the Nautical collection. You just don’t need more than one Mariner’s Hat figurine.  And I only ever got 1 mermaid. Could have used another mermaid.

 

 

 

Isn’t this one fun? I’m going to enjoy having it in my living room until it sells.😀

This was on the Zero Theorem (2013) soundtrack. I like her cover better than the original.
