FRIENDSHIP IS ...TO SHARE A CUP OF TEA - The Enchanting Rose 10th Tea Cup & Mug Exchange.


“I can just imagine myself sitting down at the head of the table and pouring out the tea," said Anne, shutting her eyes ecstatically. "And asking Diana if she takes sugar! I know she doesn't but of course I'll ask her just as if I didn't know.” 

L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables (1908)




FROM MY JOURNAL: 



March, 7th 


For the first time I'm taking part to the TEA CUP & MUG & EXCHANGE managed for a good 10 years by the lovely Stephanie at the blog The Enchanting Rose that connects women of all ages from all over the world.

The fate would have it, my name was linked to that of Miriam, a Lady of North-Eastern Europe (Estonia) whom I have not the pleasure of knowing yet, but I know that with her I share the love for this magical infusion, for everything is old and talks about the past, for the arts of embroidery and sewing,... I knew that this party would have given me some surprises !

I had started years ago a collection of tea cups dating back to the XIXth century to which now and then I added a few pieces when I happened to find rarities at flea markets, but for some time I had left out the idea; now this opportunity has given me the chance to keep them in hand again, but I could not find the one that persuaded me completely, as much as to be shipped to Miriam ... and then again I resorted to Susy at the blog Susycottage who has sent me a cup dating back to the 40': I found it perfect, cool of Spring, filled with joy like this ... 'virtual meeting', gifted with the cheerful colors that our gardens are taking on during these days ... I just hope that Miriam will like it !



I've added a sachet with a few pouches of English Breakfast Tea, with a touch of Victorian style I so love, you know,



and I sewed a little heart to which I applied some yarn decoration flower-shaped and a ceramic botton with the drawings of a flower, then I finally tied some little chocolates to it .



I wonder who is preparing the packet addressed to me ... this exciting game that is all a surprise and will end on April 19th when we all will have our cup and we could enjoy our tea ... together when our 'tea reveal party' born in the name of the Friendship that knows no boundaries will be held






March, 27th 


After just over a week since I have prepared and sent my package to Miriam, I read in the mails this morning that everything is already in her hands, I read the joy in her words, the one which comes from what surprises us pleasantly - I didn't know that she was fascinated with golden decorations, which the tea cup and its saucer also have !!! - and I'm so happy, contented more and more by taking part at this delightful initiative that is becoming to grow exciting, since also some blogger friends are beginning to receive their 'goodies'.





April 6th 

It was late in the morning and I was working in the front yard with my beloved geese, warmed by the April sun, when the postman called me since he was bringing a box coming from Australia ... suddenly my mind went to Stephanie's party and I immediately felt raptured !
Oh my word, how many treats Belle sent me, and how, how wonderful they all are, she seems to know me, for she guessed truly my taste, all is wrapped with the delicacy which only who loves beauty has as a gift !





The cup and its saucer have as decoration the flowers I love most, wonderful roses and violets,



and they belong to this wonderful gift also tea and fruits flavored infusion pouches, a trimmed doily, some Pink Lady Cream Filled truffles ( they're simply outstanding !) in a small glass tray that I'm going to use for the poutpourry I take in our living room, a fragranced sachet to perfume my underwear in the drawers and a pocket notebook in Victorian style, a true gem to me !



I'm sincerely feeling so blessed by such a friendship, Belle is really a Lady gifted with a unique taste !

And so let's definitely enjoy this tea together, thanking Stephanie for her boundless goodwill and generosity.
My adorable Augustus seems to like all Belle's goodies (I wonder if he noticed the teatowel I have that seems pendant with the tea cup having it the same flowers and the same colors!)



especially her beautiful cup



 and our tea so much ... 




"May I join you ?"




With the most sincere gratitude,

I'm thanking Stephanie and you all for the joy which you've filled these days of mine with  !


See you soon 💕














DAL MIO DIARIO :


 7 marzo 


Per la prima volta partecipo al CUP OF TEA & MUG EXCHANGE curato da ben 10 anni dalla deliziosa Stephanie del blog The Enchanting Rose che collega donne di ogni età da un capo all'altro del mondo.

La sorte ha voluto che il mio nome fosse legato a quello di Miriam, una Lady dell'Europa del Nord-Est (Estonia) che ancora non ho il piacere di conoscere, ma con cui so di condividere l'amore per questo magico infuso, per ciò che è antico e parla di passato, per le arti del ricamo e del cucito, ... sapevo che questo party mi avrebbe riservato delle sorprese !

Avevo iniziato anni fa una collezione di tazze da tè risalenti al XIX secolo alla quale di tanto in tanto aggiungevo qualche pezzo quando mi capitava di trovare rarità ai mercatini dell'antiquariato, ma da tempo avevo tralasciato l'idea; ora questa occasione mi ha dato l'opportunità di rispolverarle, ma non trovavo quella che mi persuadeva del tutto, tanto da poter spedire ... ed allora ancora una volta sono ricorsa a Susy del blog Susycottage che mi ha inviata una tazza risalente agli anni '40: l'ho trovata perfetta, fresca di primavera, gioiosa come questo ... 'raduno virtuale', colorata dei colori che stanno assumendo i nostri giardini in questi giorni ... spero solo che incontri il gusto di Miriam !





- fotografia 2 - Dettagli decorazione piattino e tazza, dietro e davanti




Ho aggiunto una bustina con alcuni sacchetti di English Breakfast Tea, creata con un tocco di stile vittoriano che tanto amo, lo sapete ormai, 




- fotografia 3




e ho cucito un piccolo cuore a cui ho applicato qualche decorazione di filato bianco a forma di fiore ed un bottone in ceramica con un fiore disegnato; infine vi ho legato alcune piccoli cioccolatini con dello spaghetto ...




- fotografia 4




E chissà chi starà preparando il pacchettino indirizzato a me ... entusiasmante questo gioco che è tutto una sorpresa e che si concluderà il 19 di aprile quando avremo tutte la nostra tazza e potremo gustare il nostro tè ... insieme, quando si terrà il nostro 'tea reveal party' all'insegna dell'Amicizia che non conosce confini !

 27 marzo  


Dopo poco più di una settimana da che ho preparato ed inviato il mio pacchetto a Miriam, leggo nelle mails di questa mattina che tutto è già nelle sue mani, leggo la gioia nelle sue parole, quella che deriva da ciò che ci sorprende piacevolmente - non sapevo che l'affascinassero i decori in oro che casualmente fregiano la tazza !!! - e sono così lieta, sempre più paga dal partecipare a questa deliziosa iniziativa che si sta facendo sempre più entusiasmante, mentre anche alcune amiche blogger stanno cominciando a ricevere le loro 'chicche'.

~ 6 aprile ~


Era tarda mattinata e stavo lavorando nel cortile davanti casa con la mie amata oche, riscaldata dal sole d'aprile, quando il postino mi ha chiamato poiché recava una scatola indirizzata a me proveniente dall'Australia ... improvvisamente la mia mente è corsa al party di Stephanie e mi sono sentito subito al settimo cielo !
Oh, non mi crederete, quante chicche Belle mi ha inviate, e sono tutte meravigliose, lei sembra quasi conoscermi perché ha realmente indovinato il mio gusto, tutto è fasciato con la grazia e la delicatezza che solo chi ama la bellezza ha come dono !




- fotografia 7



- fotografia 8



La tazza ed il piattino sono decorati con i fiori che più amo, meravigliose rose e viole, 




- fotografia 9




e fanno parte del meraviglioso dono sacchetti di tè ed infusi aromatizzati alla frutta, tartufi di cioccolato ripieni - una delizia per il palato - marca Pink Lady in un piccolo vassoio di vetro che ho intenzione di utilizzare per il potpourry che tengo nel nostro salotto, una bustina profuma biancheria e un taccuino tascabile in stile vittoriano che è un vero gioiello per me !



- fotografia 10





Sento di dover dire che sono realmente stata fortunata a trovare a una tale amica con cui corrispondere, Belle è davvero una donna dotata di un gusto unico !

Ed allora godiamoci al fine questo tè insieme, ringraziando la deliziosa Stephanie per la sua benevolenza che non conosce limiti, così come la sua generosità.

Il mio adorabile Augusto sembra gradire tutte le chicche che mi ha inviate Belle (chissà se avrà notato la tovaglietta da tè che sembra pendant con la tazza avendo gli stessi fiori e gli stessi colori !)




- fotografia 11




specialmente la sua bellissima tazza

ed il nostro tè ...

- "Posso unirmi a voi ?".







Con la più sincera gratitudine,

ringrazio Stephanie e tutti voi per la gioia con cui avete colmato questi miei giorni !


A presto 💕

      Augustus is so curious, he's still a Baby Bunny and he's so lively, he wants to participate, always !
      I didn't realize he was there till I looked inside my lens ... yes, I saw him looking at me while preapring everything for my shots, but I didn't see him arriving just ... on the 'set' :) !

      In the hope that you also enjoyed a Beautiful Easter, sweet friend,

      I never lived with bunnies at home and I couldn't even imagine the inner joy they bring into your life and into your home !!!

      Thank you for visting and for leaving such a delightful comment,
      may the Lord grant you a most glorious day, Dearest One *•♥♥•*

  35. My dearest Dany! I am in tears as I read your lovely words! My husband asked 'What's wrong?' as I read and sniffed... NOTHING is wrong but oh, so very well... in the world of beauty and love and friendship! Thank you so much for your healing words!

    This was my first time to participate in the tea cup exchange, and oh the joys of it! I couldn't imagine the blessings and delight it brought into my life.

    Thank you Stephanie for hosting this lovely event! May you be blessed ten fold!
