A Tea Gift from a Neighbor

This little resin Boyds Bears and Friends™ "Emma and Bailey... Afternoon Tea" was a gift from Joyce, our 85 year old neighbor from across the street. It was left over from her recent church fund raiser yard sale. The price tag was marked $3, but apparently nobody wanted to purchase it because the teacup has a noticeable chip. Joyce is aware of my passion for tea things and thought I might "appreciate" it. I assured her the chip just gives the little piece personality, and that I would proudly display the adorable little piece among my tea collectibles. She was very pleased.

The following quote is on the bottom:
"Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joy , and dividing our grief." ~ Addison
