I saw this image on Facebook today which a tea addict friend posted. For my next BIG birthday I would like to have a Mad Hatter's Tea Party. I have it all planned in my head and part of it includes a table with each setting a different pattern of fine china. And of course lots and lots of assorted tea-pots of different teas. I dream of starting to collect the china one service at a time at markets, charity shops and other bargain outlets. I won't even mind the occasional chip as the more character the better! I think I'd better start soon ... :D
I tracked down the source of the image to the Artist and Illustrator Helen L Smith. It is well worth a look and she even has embroidery kits! I needed a little cheer today and I thought that some of you could too. So which is your favourite tea?
P.S. I must add that I had an altogether different picture in my mind for 'p.m. tea' and it certainly had nothing to do with the afternoon/evening! If you know what I mean ... ;)
