clever photos and stories. Langley is the town, I am pretty sure, where my friend's sister has the sewing shop.

how many tea pots do you have?? At the mo, I just have one but long for another.

I love how the photos went from black and white to color to stylized color. Of course, I know that's not how the photo started, but I love what you did with it. This is true homage to tea pots! And I love that you point out summer is a diva. Happy Tea Tuesday, dear Kimmie.

over here we spell it colour, whatever way we spell it, those are magnificent teapots, because the UK has had a very hot April My Poppies are out - oriental red - and they look like huge silk plates with caviar served in the center, so nice after a grey (gray) winter, after taking tea with Bleubeard and Elizabeth I thought this week would join in..
