Recently I had an unexpected gift in the form of an extended lunch date with my dear friend (and fellow writer) Kathy, who came to Newnan for a family visit and had a little time on her hands. We are kindred spirits in a hundred different ways, and when she reaches in her bag (as she often does) and says, "This is just a little something I picked up for you," you know it is going to be completely wonderful!
Ever since I started writing my Easter adventures featuring the tea-loving Peep sisters Emma and Matilda a few years ago, I have kept an eye out for tiny tea sets. Alas, I've come across only one, so I was extra excited to receive this sweet set from Kathy. Emma and Matilda are going to love it! This tea set is sooooo tiny, the boxed set measures just 2 x 1-3/4 inches.
The teapot, for instance, is just 1-1/8 inches tall. This was a great gift, but it was made all the more special because it came from a dear friend -- and it's so lovely to be ahead on the Easter blogging for 2011! This gift also made me think about the fact I don't come across tiny little tea sets any more. Do you? If so, where?
