Last week it was a friend's birthday and I bought this charming book The Vintage Tea Party Book. She wrote a message saying "she is seriously in love with this book and cannot put it down" and who can blame her. I cheekily photographed a couple of pages, in fact too many to choose from. From the styling to the illustrations I too have a lot of love for this book. Alas I have to be sensible about spending my pennies and owning too many things, so I am pleased with the simple notion that someone is enjoying this book more than me.
