A conversation over Afternoon Tea yesterday...

Yesterday friends, Sally Rees and her husband Matt came by to drop some artwork off to me, and I showed them some antique magazines from a farm auction I went to on the weekend. One magazine, a 1906 copy of 'The Australian Hen' poultry keepers magazine had this advertisement which Sally thinks is hilarious....so I thought I'd share it with you too!

I find Afternoon Tea conversations so very stimulating!
I'll write in the next post about the willow patterned enamel teapot I missed out on at auction......

My favourite portrait by Zarhloul

This photo of me was taken towards the end of 2005 during a session with my photographer friend and ex-boyfriend, Abdel Zarhloul, in Paris.
We took a heap of different shots with different tea cosies I'd made and started the Teacosy* Revolution, in visual sense!
I love this almost chaste and devotional image and it still reminds me of all my favourite places and things in Paris...can't wait to go back!
