I nearly forgot ...

check out my new tea set. I am totally and utterly in love!! this photo i found online doesnt do it justice!

I have an unusual interest in all good quality items that look "nanna"! Maybe its cos i didnt have a grandma or nanna that i grew up with. my mum's mum is in scotland, and my dad's mum sadly passed when i was about 5-ish.

anyways, i adore anything that looks like its belonged to a grandma :D you should see my address book! yes I have one of those floral address books! I use it nearly every day as i dont have a mobile phone (did i hear u gasp?!!? yes i DONT own a mobile phone!). i love it.

so when my sister saw this fine bone china teaset by Maxwell and Williams she apparently nearly shouted at the sales woman "my sister would LOVE this!!!!!". she reckons she really embarrased herself. lol. so she couldnt say 'no' and bought it for me. isnt she lovely!

because the teapot sits ON TOP of the teacup until u are ready to pour the tea it actually warms up the cup. stopping the tea from cooling down once poured. and if there are any other tea-drinkers out there u will readily agree that tea tastes SO much better out of a china tea cup.

loves! *sigh*

(yes im drinking tea from it now!)

ok ill stop talking about my tea set now - LOL

I love your teapot Karen, I have a very girly pink and green version- totally shabby chic...and i love it, and yes it makes a huge difference when drinking tea, especially when it's made with tea leaves.
