National Hot Tea Month ~ January

January is National Hot Tea Month ~ a steaming pot of tea is a perfect solution for keeping warm during the cold days of January.  Are you enjoying afternoon tea such as these two young ladies, complete with crumpets and sweet treats perhaps?
A "Yamada Originals", crafted in 1996 by Lefton, this precious little hand-painted porcelain treasure is actually a music box.  It plays a perky rendition of  "Tea for Two" as these young ladies enjoy their time together, sharing secrets and creating lovely memories over a pot of tea.   As the quiet days of January slowly pass, we hope you are able to find some special time with a family member or close friend to enjoy your own carefree moments of sharing.

What a charming music box! Yet another piece I've never seen before. (Isn't it truly amazing how many tea-themed things are "out there" today?)
