Today I'll join in with Kelli's Show and Tell Friday for my December Daily post. As some of you may know, last Friday night I was honored to speak at the ladies' Christmas Tea at Greater Vancouver Baptist Church. One of my blog friends, Deanna, took pictures of the tables the ladies decorated, and I want to share those pictures with you (after I get permission to steal her pictures!), but today I want to show you how the ladies blessed me last week.
The ladies of GVBC gave me this beautiful tea-for-one set. It's called Blue Ribbons, from Maxwell & Williams.
At first I didn't understand "blue ribbons" because I was focused on the gorgeous roses, but then I saw the blue ribbon interwoven with the roses. Isn't it beautiful?! I just love it, and I've already served myself my favorite tea from it!
I felt like such a lady of leisure with my own little personal teapot! ;)
Thank you, ladies of GVBC, for opening your hearts to me last week, and for your beautiful gift to me. I will always cherish this little teapot and the memories I made with you last week!
And thank you to Kelli at There Is No Place Like Home for hosting Show & Tell Friday each week!
Edited to add that I just found another piece to this set! I was looking at the other pieces in this pattern on the manufacturer's website, when I noticed that the tea for one set had a saucer with it, but I didn't have a saucer with mine. So I went upstairs and got my box, which I had saved, remembering that it had felt a little heavy for just a box, and looked in it again. At the bottom there was a piece of cardboard that I hadn't noticed before. I lifted it up, and there was my saucer!
Here's my complete set . . . I feel like I just got another gift! LOL
