Share Tea with a Friend

Do you have a BFF that you love to share some time with? My BFF visited me from the frozen north a couple of weeks ago. She brought me this beautiful tea cup that she had found in an antique shop.

Yep, it's a beauty.

And while I love to enjoy a hot cup of tea, I found that I had a companion that matches it very well.

Such a lovely way to share tea with a friend :-)

Please join me as I share tea with these lovely ladies -

this is truly a charming gift, you got from your friend. I love the shape of the saucer and also the roses are cute. And how amazing that you have this tea for one in the same pattern. Thank you for sharing that treasure.

Hey visited my blog a few days ago and I just now have some time to say thank you. Your comment was so nice. I'm not a tea drinker but I think this little set is adorable. I see that you collect fabric. We must be kindred souls because I love fabric as well! Nice to meet you. ~Ann

Hi Jocelyn,
What a beautiful teacup from a dear friend! I love it! Your tea for one set is perfect with it! Thank you so much for sharing and for coming by to have tea with me. I'm sorry I'm so late visiting you; I have been sick with the flu all week. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Your tea cup is lovely, all the more because it is a gift from a friend. The teacup companion tea-for-one IS perfect with it too.
