For Mother's Day this year one of our daughter's bought me a set of these mugs with lavender and little bees. While on our Alaska cruise we had a shore excursion to a rainforrest garden where they had a cute little gift shop. And guess what I found?
The matching teapot! The store owner said she took a chance on ordering it in as she wasn't sure it would sell. What a surprise that a lavender nut from Ontario should show up and buy it lickity split.
On the flight home, the teapot rarely left my side as I had it in my carry-on bag and as you can see, it made it home in one piece.
In order to celebrate this find, an organic lavender tea to make in it is in order.
This blend is one of my favourites and I usually add a bit of honey to my tea.
I did buy something else when we were in Victoria BC. Wandering around the nicest Irish linen shop I came upon these.......
Crocheted gloves to wear for tea! I've often admired the vintage gloves that my friend Bella from Bella's Rose Cottage has and thought I'd treat myself to a pair.
I've set the lavender tea up on a small table in the bedroom along with some scones; won't you join me?
I'm having tea with Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage all the way out in PEI and Lady Katherine at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor and their guests.
As always, my passion for Victoria magazine is shared with the lovely Kathy at A Delightsome Life. Lace gloves have been featured in many a tea article and now that I have my own, I'll feel properly dressed for tea.
