Every tea lady (or tea fanatic, as I am sometimes called) needs a pretty new teacup and saucer every once in a while. I purchased this English-made Duchess June Bouquet teacup and saucer recently on Ebay at a real bargain. It arrived in my mailbox this week. I am so happy I found it, because it matches the teapot, cream and sugar set I purchased in England in June 2008. I think I should plan a "tea for me" soon!
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
