Tea with Edith the Lonely Doll

Old Haviland demi tasse cup found at a yard sale

Edith is getting ready to enjoy a cup of sweet tea.
"Please" and 'thank you' filled the air as the children passed the pots of hot tea and delicious goodies to each other." Children's Tea and Etiquette 2006 Bruce Richardson

Scalloped edge pillow sham is the backdrop

Warm and full of hot tea Edith gets a bit drowsy waiting for Little Bear

and Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage: http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/ Tea Time Tuesday
Marty at A Stroll Thru Lifehttp://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/ for tea today
It is time for tea and Edith is ready. She has found a comfy spot to sit and sip. She brought along her book to read--she loves reading her story. Little Bear will arrive any minute to join her.
The demi tasse cup is old purchased at a yard sale years ago. Edith ,The Lonely Doll, a gift last year. My favorite story as a child.
The backdrop is a new pillow sham I found antiquing. I love the soft pinks on the white. Enjoy a cuppa and
Have a Pink day!

  3. The Lonely Doll is not being made any longer. This was one of only two I have seen being offered for sale anyplace. Ebay, auctions etc Pink Boy bought her for my birthday from Let's Play Dolls web site.
