For Teacup Tuesday, Tea Time Tuesday, Teatime For Two, Tea Pot and Tea Things Tuesday and other tea related blog parties today I wanted to share this Wedgwood, England teacup called Strawberry Hill because we had our first strawberry shortcake of the year last night! Totally delish! I always love this time of year with the fresh strawberries available. YUMMM!!!
This Wedgwood teacup at Antiques and Teacups was made in between 1957-1978 and has always been a favorite pattern of mind. It is such an elegant shape and lovely pattern. Speaks spring to me...and those great strawberries! To see more about the teacup, click on the photos.
A month from today's date is the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate. It was fun posting the cake recipe & prep videos yesterday. Today I have something different, so get out your knitting needles. A tea friend, Denise of Tea In London on Afternoon Tea Across America who now lives in England sent me a link to a booklet she found and then located on Amazon called Knit Your Own Royal Wedding!
The blurb says:
The most unique tribute to the wedding of Prince William and Kate
Middleton--instructions for a handknit wedding scene complete with
adorable dolls and a foldout illustration of Westminster Abbey so you
can display your creations.
Knit Your Own Royal Wedding
features projects for Prince William, Kate Middleton, the Queen, Prince
Harry, other members of the royal family, and even a cute little corgi.
The background scene, which fits into a pocket in the back cover, is an
illustrated foldout of Westminster Abbey. Also included are instructions
for a few wedding accessories.
Each project comes complete with
knitting instructions and full-color photos of the finished doll, all on
cleverly illustrated pages. For knitters and nonknitters alike, this
will be a beautiful and fun souvenir of what is sure to be the wedding
of the century!
How fun is that! So...get knitting!!!!

Won't be getting to my tea friends till later today...filling in for the church secretary today & Thursday while she is with our youth group on a trip to work at a n orphanage in Mexico which they do every spring break. Have a great day.
And please remember to pray for my dear daughter in law Casey who is having heart surgery today at noon. The fervent prayer of a believer does much. Thank you.
