Home Sweet Home-July Tea Swap


I came home from vacation from a week on the Beach. It was a long (over due) needed time to relax and get in touch with myself.
I stayed at my dear friends beach home in Oakland Beach, RI. You can read about my vacation adventures here.

When I came home, I had a package waiting for me on the front steps. It's always so wonderful having something or someone waiting when you get home. I was totally delighted to get this package. 
It was from  Lady Catherine of Round Lake Beach, IL.

Which reads:                             Aries of London-Fine Black Cherries

 The tea cup and saucer was accompanied with a lovely tin can fulled with English Breakfast tea.
A classic blend of Indian, Kenyan and Ceylon tea.
I could not wait to sit and enjoy a cup and read all my lovely greeting cards I received while I was away. Thank you all. It is great to come home to such a welcome!
