Tea and Flowers

Do you Rue La La?
I do a lot of window shopping there.
Every now and then I find something I really La-La over!


DD (dear daughter) spoiled me during her father's illness.
After his passing, she made sure I had flowers for Valentine's Day.

Tea and Roses Mosaic

She knows how much I like Tracy Porter.

I love Porter's color combinations and wild and crazy designs.
DD found this tea set: teapot, sugar and creamer on Rue La La.
Each piece is a little sculpture.

And, now it lives with me!
It is from the Vivre Collection.

Beautiful tea and flowers ... good for the soul.


Big THANK YOUS to our hostesses:

Party On!

Wishing you well.

Edit: My back has gone on the fritz and I can't sit for very long.
My apologies to all of you for not visiting and I'll try to catch up another day.
Wishing you well and good backs!!!

Sounds like DD is taking special care of you, so nice to know. I haven't Rue-La-La'ed yet but you can be darned sure I'm going right now.

I hope you are finding peace and healing. I really love the roses; so very pretty-I can smell the fragrance....ahhhh!
What an interesting pattern on the teapot. I wouldn't have put brown with teal, but its quite striking.
thanks for sharing...
Blessings to you!
