that's quick

Please join me for a cup of tea and enjoy my new teapot! It arrived yesterday morning and boy that was quick. I thought it would take a week or three. It's real pretty and goes perfect with my other china. I love a bit of mitch match.

Have a lovely weekend everyone! Before I go I love to share this cat with you. I copied this from the cover of Maison Idees Magazine no 38. I bought this magazine while I was in French and I love this 'chat héroïque'. I believe it's a doorstop (can't read French language)...See the bandage on his tail, so funny!

I really love your new tea pot but could you please make mine a coffee because tea makes me unwell. Love the fabrics. They are so inspiring seeing them all together. Have fun making the doll. I hope you will share a picture of her when she is finished. A x

Gelukkig ben ik niet de enige die kort geleden verliefd werd op deze theepot. Oh, wat mooi en volkomen overbodig!
Groetjes, Claudia

Een mooie theepot is noooooit overbodig! Ik heb hem natuurlijk ook besteld en zit me er al lekker op te verheugen. Geweldig die stofjes! En de deurstopper kat is ook helemaal leuk! Fijn weekend!

Corry - like you, I have several projects to finish before I can start on your doll! I'm so excited to begin that it's hard to stay focused on finishing up the other things!

What an amazing tea pot. Much nicer than my plain, but very utilitarian, brown pot.

Just came from a blog with a card saying, "Everything stops for tea." A very positive approach to life.

I love all your china, I like to mix & match too but I do it in blue and white.
Woult the gorgeous French cat be "Chat about Le chat"?
