Tea For One

There is a wonderful shop in my Village called The British Isles.
Tea cups and tea pots and tea and tea things everywhere you look.
A feast for tea lovers.
I went in one day with a dear friend and I splurged on a Tea For One.

Nina Campbell Tea for One

There were many tea for ones to pick from,  
but this caught my eye from the start.
It was so different from all the others with its parrots, butterflies and flowers.
Simple and makes me smile!

Nina Campbell Tea for One

It is designed by Nina Campbell for Roy Kirkham.

Nina Campbell Tea for One

Before the Royal Wedding, I checked the British Isles for
Harney and Sons special Wedding Tea blend
and they didn't have any.
But, as you can see, they got more in and I put my new 
Tea for One to work with the Wedding Tea
(black tea, roses and vanilla).


Thanks to our tea party hostesses.
These are just a few of the tea parties in the Land of Blog.

Wishing YOU well and a wonderful cup of tea!

my mammy loves tea and she bought this kind of "tea for one", it's beautiful, but not so wonderful as this one by Nina Campbell.This pot is very refined!
Ahh and I love the flowers, they are adorable!

That tea blend sounds wonderful, Snap. I'm having a cup of black tea while I write this. I'll think of you sipping from your new cup in your garden - hope it's finally cool enough to do so!
