Birthday Gifts!

This English tea pot is the newest addition to the tea pot collection - a birthday gift to myself! Marked 'Gibsons England' on the bottom, it's always a treat to find an English tea pot. It will be put into service in the tea room this weekend! When I purchased it, the clerk asked how many tea pots I own to which I replied, 'I don't know!' She confirmed I was a true collector of tea pots with that statement!

The colorful floral bouquet was a surprise waiting for us when we returned from a weekend getaway. Crafted using herbs and flowers from her garden, a very special thank you to Linda F. for the lovely arrangement. She gave one to Nancy and another one to Susanna. Such a cheerful greeting upon our return home!

I *love* your new teapot -- that shape is gorgeous, and naturally I love the rose pattern as well! Pretty live flowers too -- a great theme of florals today!

Love the teapot! I have one similar with blue roses. Perfect present. We are about birthday buddies!

Beautiful gift to yourself. Now I am thinking, do I know how many I have, hummmmm? I must be a collector. The flowers are so very pretty and what a lovely welcome home.
