tea party

One of the first thing that R remembers about me when we met is that I brought a teacup as an object to describe myself during our introductions of our study tour.  I am sure he found it particularly odd for a college student, but hey, it made me stand out.  I absolutely love having my own private tea party in the mornings while journaling.  Most are from antique shop or flea markets (Kansas, LA and SF) and a lot have been gifted to me.  After over 10 years, I have amassed quite a collection as you can imagine.  

A few weeks ago, a friend mentioned to me that she was hosting a English tea party bridal shower.  I loved the idea of being able to provide a full tea collection as well as help style a party!  The guests all showed up with dresses and hats, and even though it was nearly 80 degrees in the garden, everyone drank tea and ate cucumber sandwiches (along with MANY other delish foods)!

Even though I did not know the bride or many of the guests, it was still an lovely chance to see my full set in use!  Tea time anyone?
