My Secret Admirer

When I got home yesterday from running errands there was a package waiting for me. I hadn't ordered anything so I was surprised to open the package and find this.













Such a beautiful teacup.












This is the back view, its a little different from the front.

There was no note inside and I have no idea who sent it. What a delightful surprise this was. I love it. Now I have 4 teacups so I can have a tea party. Sarah has since informed me that one of the cups is hers but she won't be claiming it anytime soon. I also have 2 demi-tas cups so I could have 2 little girls over too. I think having a tea party will be the perfect thing to do to keep the winter doldrums at bay.

















I think I will pull out this book and plan some fun treats to make. Whoever sent me this wonderful gift I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

How fun to receive something unsolicited and so beautiful as that.
I think a tea party would definitely be a good winter activity.
A lovely gesture.

p.s. I have a china teapot and a china tray with a handle with a violet pattern. It was my Mom's and I always loved it...one year years ago she surprised me by giving it to me for Christmas. I later found a couple of tea cups with violets that semi match it. This has reminded me to get all that out again.
