TEA QUOTE


Nowhere is the English genius of domesticity more notably evident than in the festival of afternoon tea.
 The...chink of cups and the saucers tunes the mind to happy repose.  George Gissing

How true! I like the vignette you put together for this post Bernideen.
I'll bet pouring from the top handled teapot is very user friendly.

A VERY LOVELY QUOTE, LOVE YOUR ROSE TEA SET.
I MADE A FEW DOLLS WITH THE LADY HEADS AND HANDS, PRETTY LACE DRESSES, WITH TINY FLOWERS. THEN I WOULD MAKE A BAG OUT OF LACE AND FILL IT WITH LAVENDER AND INSERT IT WITH A FEW STITCHES UNDER HER DRESS. I SOLD QUITE A FEW AT A CRAFT SHOW. IT SMELLED SO GOOD, AND SHE LOOKED LOVELY SITTING ON THE BED. HAVE A NICE DAY, RIZZI
