Tea Party

Did you ever play tea party when you were little? I know I did, probably under the same tree where I played house at my great-grandmother's. Which, I've since learned, was not a willow, but a weeping mulberry. Interest in botany didn't come until much later, lol.

But when I grew up, coffee became my hot beverage of choice. Guess I needed the extra caffeine kick.  Anyhoo, the stamps in the new Tea Shoppe set remind me so much of tea sets I played with as a child. And the Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper is a perfect match. The combination transports me back to a more innocent, genteel time.

  1. LOL ... great memories of tea with Grandma for sure .... I still love tea parties ... benefit of working with kiddies is I still get to have them about once a month ... we dress up and have 'iced' tea from the little tiny cups and finger sandwiches and fruit on a tiered tray and the whole shebang ... they love it!

    Might have to get this set to make up the 'invitations' for them that would be a hoot!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
