Yesterday a friend stopped by and brought a gift that brought me simple delight!
Old, worn napkin rings were adorned with bling, bling, bling! Old earrings and broaches from some woman's jewelry box were recycled to make this lovely gift. The result was a set of vintage hoops for napkins of linen and lace.
Quirky and pretty, these rings will assist me as entertainer at many an afternoon tea. Can you picture them with an assortment of old china, mismatched silverware, hand-painted teacups and saucers, and a three-tiered tray of scones, dainty tea sandwiches, and tiny desserts?
My friend's gracious gift was melded with the hospitality of a cup of tea. We chatted for hours, sharing tidbits of our lives. We were reluctant to end the afternoon, but parted with plans to share time and a cuppa tea together again soon. Someday soon I'll share about some of the
other gifts she brought. Life is good!
