Birthday tea goodies!

When tea blogger friend Linda received a Happy Birthday teacup for her March birthday, I remember being so impressed that her friend Mary had found such a great gift for her. Last week, I was even more impressed when my Aunt Jane gave me the same teacup for my own birthday!

It's by Royal Albert, and I am going to start a new tradition of using this teacup each year during my birth month of May!

Another tea-themed gift was this beautiful tea towel that was included in a great bag full of goodies from my friend (and tea party mate) Beth.


Isn't this embroidery just so lovely? I think it's one of the prettiest tea towels I've seen in quite some time!

And last but by no means least, I couldn't wait to show you these adorable teacup candlesticks made by my friend Susan! Won't these be perfect at tea?

A little tealight candle fits right inside the teacup, making these the perfect accent for my tea table. I got lots of garden-themed gifts for my birthday this year, as I had requested, but I felt very blessed that some tea gifts came my way as well!
