{Tea Cup Gift from Blogger Friend Susan & Ava Grace}

It seems unreal when thinking about our lovely June Brunch in Toronto with e.g. sweet blogger Friend Susan...
BUT already 4 months have passed!
Time for finally showing Susan from Ava Grace's Closet's lovely gift...
Look what an adorable Box with fabulous afternoon Tea Cup & Saucer by Indigo!
With a sweet note from Susan and Ava Grace, her cute little daughter.
Ava Grace could not join us however, she was sick...
My home baked Almond Amaretti cookies are great with tea on the balcony!
The weather did brighten up this afternoon.
Hope it will soon look better in South Carolina where people suffer from so much flooding.
Love the poppies with butterflies!
sincèrement
Tu es tout ce que j'aime...
You are all that I love...
Seriously
you give me butterflies
You sure DID sweet Susan and THANK YOU SO MUCH!
The Box is a Gift in itself; so pretty! Glad it did fit into our carry on for flying home with it.
One day, we will get to see your cute daughter Ava Grace - PROMISE!
Fond memories, every time I sip tea from this cup

  6. It is wonderful that you were able to meet your sweet and thoughtful blogger friend Susan, dear Mariette! A lovely token of your friendship was given and can be enjoyed any time you have tea, with happy thoughts of your friend each time. I love the red poppies :) So glad that you escaped the flooding there where you live, but so very sorry and sending prayers for everyone suffering through this disaster.
