Tea Cups Travel the World.....

My dear friend

has hosted another of her world famous
Tea CupExchange

I was partnered with

She sent me a beautiful tea cup named
embellished with exquisite pink roses
of the vintage kind - my favourites

Also in the package were
a gorgeous heart
the prettiest beaded lace collar 
both hand made by Mimi.

I just love the sweet card Mimi made
for me as well.

Thank you
You have spoiled me with
all these pretty gifts!

I sent my tea cup to

it was my pleasure to find
the right tea cup for her

Stephanie had sent me an email
telling me Trisha's favourite colour was yellow
so when I spotted this bone china tea cup
in a little antique shop
I knew it would be perfect!
It is a Royal Albert cup


I hope Trisha loves it too.

I added some other 'tea related' bits and bobs
with a Kiwi flavour
to give her a taste of New Zealand.

Thank you
dear Stephanie for hosting another
of your lovely tea parties.

I know what a huge undertaking it is
and you run it like a professional!

A visit to Laduree in Paris

On a sunny Sunday in Paris
my daughter and I visited 

a beautiful Ladurée shop just off 

the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

It was a magical experience
the decor is exquisite and I could easily imagine
Marie Antoinette frequenting
such establishments had they been there in her day!

Such lavish displays of macarons and chocolates
made it difficult to narrow down my selections
of flavours and boxes!

The only drawback was the throngs of other tourists
with the same idea as me....
but that didn't stop me joining the queue
and eventually my turn came around to be served!

If you are a macaron lover and visiting Paris
then I recommend you
don't miss this treat!

I'm joining 
Judith for Mosaic Monday
Stephanie for Roses of Inspiration.

Thank you ladies for hosting

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt
