Hallo Duchess, erstmal gratuliere ich Dir ganz herzlich zu diesen wunderbaren Awards die Du dir aber auch wirklich verdient hast und dann natürlich zu den Damen die sie Dir verliehen haben. Bei deiner großen Leserschaft, die sicherlich sehr zeitaufwendig ist, möchte ich mich auch bei Dir dafür bedanken, das Du dich in meine Verfolgerliste eingetragen hast, darüber habe ich mich wirklich sehr gefreut.
Heute bewundere ich deine Teekannen, ich bin schon seit längerer Zeit auf der Suche nach einer "richtig" schönen Teekanne, rundlich, ein guter Griff zum Anfassen, ein vernünftiger Ausgießer (sodas der kostbare Tee nicht größtenteils verschüttet wird lach) halt eine perfekte, schöne Teekanne!! Hast Du vielleicht eine Adresse für mich wo ich an so ein Teil kommen kann?
ein wunderschönes Wochenende und trink eine Tasse Tee für mich mit
liebe Grüße

Well my dearest 'Duchess Of Tea',

I must commend and congratulate you on so deservedly, garnering these lovely awards!..,

~If I may for a brief moment, I think I shall, but "leave you here for a scant minute or two, dearest,"~ as I simply must go finish brewing my perfect cup of tea"..,

Now that's much better!~ "Here we are, kitty, hubby and I;
and a perfectly brewed cup fo tea for you as well"!..,

(Aah!~ Now I can write,as we are all cozily ensconced by the fire, cup of tea in hand)!..,

As I have mentioned on so many occasions darling,and it always singularly bears the delight of repeating; your blog is nothing but pure delight!..,

I still always feel 'decidedly delighted', whenever you visit my blogs, as I do belive you to be equivilant to "blog royalty"!..,

Your fabulous posts are indeed full of grace and artistry; long may you grace us with your exemplary blog posts, darling Duchess!..,

G'morn, Duchess ~ How lovely you have received such wonderful awards.

Sorry I missed the tea ... your 'bites' looked delicious, the table settings so elegant. I settle dfor pineapple upside down cake, instead ... no comparison to your delicacies, tho.

Have a wonderful weekend.
