The past few days I have been blessed with a few nice surprises. My aunt and uncle who live in Hemet came over to visit this past Saturday and we all had a great time. I hadn't seen my aunt in quite some time and it was so nice to see her looking healthy, well and jovial too! She brought a few gifts over and it was like christmas! We were blessed with yummy teas like pumpkin cream chai, pomegranate green tea and delicate white teas with honey sticks, tea pots and sets too.
Also this week I got a nice little owl post, literally, from my friend Mathyld. Serena the Wizarding Owl is home at last! She made herself quite comfortable upon arrival and even began to enjoy the new tea pots and such with us.
One of the first things Serena did was to peruse books we have all over the house.
She absolutely fell in love with my new owl tea pot my Aunt gave me. I told her how thrilled I was to receive it :)
Eager to use my first Yixing clay teapot (also given to me by my aunt), I made some delicious Blueberry tea given to me by a dear friend who lives in England right now.
Serena, a bit tired from her long journey from Paris, couldn't wait for a cup herself.
While we waited for it to brew, I showed her the beautiful Yixing Tea set that my aunt gave Natalie...
...and this absolutely darling porcelain set she gave her as well.
I think Serena felt quite at home!
Serena came just in time to be with us for this autumn season and I am ever so thankful to Miss Mathyld for sending her my way...
