What's in a Tea Cup? Memories!

We welcome December with all the joy associated with the celebrations held throughout the month. A month of tea parties in Sweet Remembrances, a month of preparation, shopping and more shopping to find the perfect gift from The Rosemary House, a month of friendship, and a grand finale with family gatherings. December is busy! But this fine bone china tea cup (decorated in England) also holds a bounty of memories.

This festive December teacup reminds us of our travel destination several years back, 2016 to be exact, when we headed to Vancouver to attend the 17th Annual International Bell Symposium (Angelica and the local bell choir rang in the concert along with 800 participants from around the world and 3,500 bells). After the symposium, we took the ferry to Victoria, British Colombia with a side trip to the Butchart Gardens. This lovely souvenir overflows with memories of a warm summer and beautiful vacation with family. We leisurely strolled the fabulous gardens abundant with colorful flora, and then enjoyed Afternoon Tea in the Dining Room where we overlooked the Italian Gardens. Simply lovely memories.
