A Proper Cuppa

Like a good English girl (my grandparents were from England), I love my tea. A few years ago I was given a Wedgwood tea set, and last weekend I finally got to use it for the first time. One of my fellow stallholders came over for proper afternoon tea.

We brainstormed ideas for freshening up our stalls (Ikea was mentioned), and I sent her on her way with a baggie of fabric scraps to be turned into accessories. I also got motivated and started on some market sewing; some new cushion covers and a super cute stripy bunny.

I also snuck down the beach on Sunday for a bit of a family reunion; I love the beach no matter the weather.

Simply can not drink tea unless it is in a china cup. Love proper afternoon tea (madelines are our current favourite).

There is nothing like a beach, and it is especially good in cooler weather as you are more likely to have it mostly to yourself. Love Peterborough down on the south western coast of Victoria for that very reason.
Your stripey bunny is very cute. I hope you remember to take a photo of him finished to show us what he looks like.
