tea party day continuation




Hi there,


Here I am all alone having my little tea party, I might be here in person by myself but throughout the morning I've been making some new friends in cyber space. Thanks ARTSYMAMA for a wonderful idea and initiative.

What a morning ...drawling over some wonderful blogs and websites, seeing such wonderful china and linen......well this was just too much, I decided to get out all my old china that I carefully wrapped up and put away, so that the kids wouldn't ruin them. I've decided that they are no longer to be hidden away and need to go back on display.....wasn't that the whole idea in the first place to be seen and used. So linens will be washed and old china washed , I've decided that I will display them in my old antique English display cabinet.........only one problem will now have to find a new place for my collection of dolls !!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Looking forward to continuing the day dropping in on other peoples tea parties.

Glad you decided to get your pretty things out! It is a shame to hide them away. I love any excuse to bring out mine.

see you there! said...

Use your "good stuff" and enjoy it. Remember, you are worth every bit of it. Company comes and goes but you are there with yourself everyday. Treat yourself!

Whew! Can you hand me a cup of tea while I get off my soapbox?

Thanks for stopping by. I do like David Bowie!! I too have to remember to use my good things, not to hide them away. They're meant to be used and enjoyed, not hidden. Thanks for reminding me of that.

Oops, I forgot to mention that I absolutely love those bracelets. Were they hard to do?

Hello Joan - so pleased you were able to stop by for tea in my gazebo this afternoon!! What a fun International tea day it was. Lucky you living in Italy. I'm British too, living in the US, and wanting, longing, dreaming to be back in Tuscany - my most favorite place on earth!
I'll be crossing the pond again this year to stock up on TEA by the ton - also Oxos (in every shape and form), Bird's Custard, Smarties, McVitie's Choc. Digestive to dip in the tea etc. etc. Had to buy an extra suitcase last trip!
Hope Spring soon arrives for you.
Fondly, Mary.
P.S. I put my milk in the cup first - even Her Majesty does so I'm told!!
