TEA QUOTE





In a few minutes tea was brought.  Very delicate was the china, very old the plate, very thin the bread-and-butter, and very small the lumps of sugar.  Sugar was evidently Mrs. Jamieson's  favourite economy.

I love all quotes about tea! I thought I could use one in the dining-room.

Love all the bright, happy colors here! I may have to pull out some vintage linens and play around!

Such an adorable tablecloth with a lovely tea setting. And the quote is perfect.
