How wonderful the blogging community is. It is such a pleasure to meet lovely people through blogging, and one in particular is the gorgeous Alison from Hill & Vale. Alison makes her own blend of Chai Tea and offered to send me a sample after I had left her a very silly comment on her blog! When her package arrived I thought perhaps she had something a bit mixed up because look at the size of this parcel ... enough tea to quench the thirst of a hall full of CWA ladies! Beautifully presented in a vintage linen tea towel with a map of Australia and some rather grizzly Aussie animals, and a card of instructions to help me blend the perfect cup of tea.
I was wrong because look what was within the wrapping of linen, a beautifully mismatched china tea cup and saucer! How lucky am I? What a surprise! Lovely china makes a cup of tea taste Even Better.
Thank you so much Alison! Your gift was a delight and your tea is absolutely delicious! Lovely to have a quiet cuppa in amongst the shenanigans of school holiday activities. And I haven't forgotten you, I am on the lookout for a lovely return surprise to have arrive in your letterbox ... soon!
And woolly pursuits you ask? Yes, more squares have been added into the mix, and the number is growing. They get laid out on the bed and admired far too often ... if only I applied myself a little more to their actual making!
Girl 2 is very excited by the progress, but keeps mentioning the need for more pink! So more pink there will be, after all it will be her very own snuggly blanket for her very own [pink] room.
Wishing you a happy day/weekend/week.
