Black tea, no sugar....









....good things come to those who wait!!! I did wait some time to receive this amazing little cup & saucer.....but I firmly believe it was worth waiting for!! It is all hand made by Teresa Weston of 'China Closet'.....I even feared that perhaps it had been lost in the mail, so you can imagine my delight when it did arrive.....It is GORGEOUS!!! I can once again only marvel at the amazing skills of some miniaturists....Thank You Teresa.

Also a very big thank you to those who sent me 'get well' wishes, I am most grateful....x

When I first saw the tray, I thought it was real life not 1/12 scale.

Oh yes, definitely worth waiting for, what a gorgeous teacup! I have seen their bowls at shows before, so delicate and beautifully made, but never the teacups. I would absolutely have bought it as well.
