It was a total surprise! The pink flowers were only the decoration on a sweet gift bag I received.
Look closer...there's a tea infuser with some VERY pretty beads attached!
It was made especially for me!! Why? My name was selected by  
Sheri at Prim Rose Hill.
The beads are exquisite and I am loving this pretty gift!! The lamp work bead has my very most favorite colors and the sparkle in the Swarovski crystals is brilliant. The pearls and spacers add to its beauty, too.
Thank you, thank you, Sheri!! I'm getting out my Darjeeling, the champagne of tea, and my favorite cup to enjoy some quiet time. Bliss...

How cute! I collect tea cups and tea pots and love anything to do with tea! That tea infuser is lovely!

Wow - that's beautiful! What a neat idea - gosh - so many creative thinkers out there! Every time I see an infuser I miss the one I had years ago - a little teapot on a tray - have no idea where it went!

I see another post of yours and am wondering what it's about. I'll have to go check it in a sec.

School back in session up there?

Take care! Hugs! Jenn
