Serendipity

Hello, Lady B here. I experienced a very serendipitous occurrence a few weeks ago. I was walking in my neighborhood on a bright fall day. I saw my neighbor Liz outside of her house so I stopped to chat. She asked me how things were and I replied that I was writing a book about tea and finding it more difficult than I had expected! So Liz replied that she was writing a book too! It will be about illustrated children's books. Then she said she had a blog. So of course I said "I do too!"  So we exchanged blog addresses and I hurried home to check out her blog. Please visit her blog when you have a chance. Liz'sBookSnuggery.com  Well, a few days passed and I found a box on my front porch. In it was this sweet teacup.


 
 
So I guessed where it came from. I put a little gift in the box and put it on her doorstep.
A few days later I saw a bag on my doorstep. You guessed it - another anonymous package. This time containing two tea cups!
                      This beautiful cup adorned with pansies from the      Salisbury company in England.
And this sweet rosie teacup from the Elizabethan company in England.  I'm not sure who is going to strike next but I do know I have a very nice relationship with a neighbor who I now have quite a lot in common with!
