Ding-dong, it's Avon calling … with a charming new teapot!
A few weeks ago, my friend and former coworker Beverly got in touch to let me know that she was selling Avon again and that they were coming out with a teapot that she had a feeling I might want. Now I was an Avon lady myself back in college and have remained a fan of their products, so I was quite happy when Beverly contacted me. When she showed me a photo of this tea-for-one set and I saw the *handwriting* on it, I knew I had to have it for the office where I do my writing!
This is my new go-to teapot and teacup in my office, and I absolutely love it! Isn't this design beautiful? The catalog description notes that it is "decorated with a vintage Parisian illustration," and it makes me so happy to have teawares with writing on them at my side as I finish up the edits of my novel!
Will it help my writing and editing? Only time will tell, but I am delighted to have this set! There are also some other great new tea-themed pieces in the Avon Living catalog, and Beverly said that yes, I could share a link to her Avon website here in case, like me, some of you have been without an Avon lady for a while. (She and husband David run their business together, and she laughingly informed me he is "an Avon guy" instead of an Avon lady.) Here's the link to the tea set, and here's a link to the brochure with other tea goodies. Do you have an Avon lady where you live? And if so, do you have a favorite product? Mine, by far, is their makeup remover lotion, which I guess I've been using for more than 20 years now. It takes off even the most waterproof mascara without taking off eyelashes in the process, and once I discovered it, I never used anything else!
