I have this absolute love of tea sets. And while I have a full tea set that I bought at the Royal Worcester Porcelain Factory a few years ago (back when we were allowed two full, carry-on pieces of luggage) I have also always wanted a tea-for-one set.

When I moved back from England, I brought my sister, Steph, back this beautiful tea-for-one for her birthday. It is beautiful. And I am so mad at myself for not squeezing another set into my carry-on luggage, though at the time the thought of placing one more item in my luggage, and a breakable piece at that, was laughable.

So, how was this situation remedied? From one very thoughtful friend, Kole, remembering how much I wanted a set and surprising me with it on my birthday.

Behold, my new tea-for-one.

Isn't it lovely?

All the way through the post I was thinking, "Aha! Now I know what I can get for Nicole..."

Damn, damn, damn Kole's thoughtfulness!

Just kidding, it's so pretty in its simplicity.
