"What's this?" you ask....


A few weeks back I got a package from my friend Jackie in Surrey. If you follow my blog, you will recognize her name. And if you have read her blog (and I think you should), you will know she loves tea and in particular Yorkshire Tea. So I had to Google Yorkshire Tea and after reading about it, I had to have some. I found it at Amazon. You can read about it here and here. It is a lovely tea.



In the package was an apron, a tote (which will go back to Maine with my knitting projects) and a tea towel. What a treat. So here are a few pictures.





Of course I had to get a new little teapot. Just because....
I love the lid.


And the teapot designs.



And, of course the tea...


Another pot


Scenes on the tea towel



Thank you Jackie!

What great goodies Jackie sent, we're off to the UK next week and will certainly be bringing back boxes of Yorkshire's finest export to France.
The apron or pinny as we used to call them in the UK is fab!
