Let's have some tea first, shall we?
I'm using my watering can teapot from the Marjolein Bastin collection that holds a good lot of tea and the lid is topped with a butterfly.
The spout has a cute little ladybug on it.
This cup and saucer is special to me as it is part of a gift of 6 various ones given to me by the friend I bought my new dining room suite from. It's bone china and the pattern says 'Delphine'.
A view of the inside of the cup.
What has Victoria magazine meant to me? Like many other readers the pages bring me pretty feminine things to look at and think about adding to my life. It acts as a guide for the same type of decor I adore and can copy to achieve this. There are fantastic recipes, flowers and best of all, motivation to make your own home the best it can be.
One of my favourite issues from back in June of 1999. It showed what a royal wedding tea might be like and when you have an English background, articles like this beckon.
Meringue swans were featured for the royal celebration in the magazine and served during an afternoon tea I attended at the Fairmont in Toronto a few years ago. Aren't they delightful?
The Victoria magazine party is being hosted by Kathy at A Delightsome Life who knows that tea and Victoria go hand in hand.
I hope you'll visit the other ladies for tea and perhaps take part in the Victoria party if you read the magazine.
