Tea Surprise

A beautiful new collection of
Spode Wicker Lane china...Delicate soup bowls, saucers, plates and a tea setting...
This set is magnificent...and it was a surprise gift...
Just exquisite...

There is a wonderful couple in my church very close to my heart.
Just knowing them makes my life richer...I adore them ~ Stan and Joyce.
They are one of my true treasures - my dearest friends!
Stan and Joyce are a testimony to behold:
a pattern to follow to ensure a happy and loving marriage...
an example of how to encourage, edify and uplift one another...
faithful and diligent in all that they do...
and a pure blessing to everyone!
A couple of weeks ago they presented me with this lovely
collection of china...I was awestruck!
These dishes belonged to Joyce's mother and now I
have the honor of keeping them in my home.
The pictures just don't do these incredible pieces justice....
I love these dishes...

nestled in their new home...
