Yesterday the postman delivered a package that I have been waiting for for a quite some time. I signed up for the Tasha Tudor Valentine's Day and my package never came. My partner lives in New Hampshire and has been snowed in a good amount of the winter. Her hubby forgot to mail my package too, so it was really late in arriving. I was thrilled with her box and what she chose for me.
She learned that I was watching the Victoria special on PBS and discovered that I love all the English shows on PBS. She put together a little tea in a box gift.
I love the dainty cup and saucer. The colors are perfect and it's a fun addition to my collection.
Here's the markings on the bottom of the cup...it's marked Old Royal Bone China England.
This sweet little porcelain lady was also included. Isn't she wonderful? Do you think she is keeping a secret? I think so.
I loved the card that Allyson sent...very Victorian and so pretty.
And what a grand box of PG Tips tea! It's such a wonderful tea...always a classic.
Nice and hardy for a rainy day.
I can buy King Arthur's flour out here in Oregon. I was happy to find a package of their scone mix in my box! How fun. I can't believe how delicious this mix is. I made them in the drop form, which is so easy and it's pretty hard to fail. Jimmy was just thrilled. He loves cranberry orange. It did give a little recipe for a glaze that really added a nice touch.
Yummmm....the finished projects.
Flaky and so flavorful.
Such a delightful treat on a rainy day. I will be participating in the Tasha Tudor Easter exchange and Stephanie's Tea Cup exchange next. Happy Tea Time.
