Happy girl


I am a very happy girl. Way back in March I bought a gorgeous little milk jug and sugar bowl, which I first used when I had my friends over for brunch.

I fell for them, because they remind me of the purple sea urchin shells I used to find at the beach back in Australia.

I did love the teapot as well, but it was 50francs, and considering I don't actually drink tea, I wasn't willing to spend that much money on a teapot! So ever since I have been searching for a teapot that would not clash with the others in the set, and was a halfway reasonable price, to no avail. All the inexpensive pots I could find were horrid or the wrong colour or...

But tonight I dropped in to the shop where I bought my stuff originally, and much to my joy and surprise there was my teapot. Half price!! And to add to the surprise, candleholders as well, also half price.

So I am a happy Kiriel, and all I need is to have friends over for afternoon tea to enjoy it.

I'm desperately wishing I could drop in for afternoon tea. The teaset is lovely, but I wouldn't care if you served me out of a chipped vegemite jar!

This is a beautiful teaset. Fine design enhances the pleasure a cup of tea!
