The second part of my belated Christmas gift from Mary is this pretty limited-edition collector's plate,
"Cora's Tea Party" by Richard Zolan ©1982.
Mary said when she saw this plate at Goodwill, she just knew it was me, as a little girl, having a tea party.
Wasn't that sweet? Mary and I have been friends for over 40 years.
We have shared many wonderful afternoon teas together.
