Tea Parties with a Child

Our challenge this month reminded me of something I did as a child.
My next door neighbor was a teenager and took time with me
to teach me how to make fudge and
to have make believe tea parties.
She had the tiniest little teacups and teapot
and we would sip sugared water and eat dainty sandwiches.
There were no other little girls on our block 
and I will always remember those special moments with Teddy!

You can imagine my husband's surprise when I came home
from a flea market one day with the tiniest of tea sets
and with the biggest smile on my face.
When there is a little girl wishing she had a friend,
I may schedule a special tea party in honor of my friend.

Here are some cards inspired by this memory.

So to my friend Teddy wherever you may be,
I made a special card for you!

What a lovely way to honor a special memory. It's a pretty card, love the colors & the delicate filigree overlay. These colors are always so dear to the hearts of little girls. How fun that you found a tiny tea set to have ready for a special little guest. TFS & Hugs
