Books and TeaTime Anytime !

Excited to share today's TeaTime with you...
Answered my door to find the postman barely holding on to a massive package.
We had a good laugh when I suggested it would take me all week to open it!
{Especially when I saw the sender's name}

Here's what I found !! ~
Author Joanna Campbell Slan's Giveaway Win !!

I was soooo excited to unwrap this !

Joanna had graciously added a copy of her newest historical fiction novel
Death of a Dowager ~  Jane Eyre Chronicles book 2
{complete with bookmark and a 'books wanted' list!}
to the lovely basket
along with Highlanders Shortbread, Yorkshire tea, the cutest creativi-tea tag, aaaaannnnnd
a gorgeous antique Limoges TEACUP !

Tiny rosebuds with ivy leaf encircle both cup and saucer 
rimmed with gold
Saucer markings include Limoges JMC France with 
M.F.&C. Chicago
To whet your appetite - 
"In her classic tale, Charlotte Brontë introduced readers to the strong-willed and intelligent Jane Eyre. 
Picking up where Brontë left off, the year is now 1820, and Jane’s life has finally settled into a comfortable pattern. 
She and her beloved Edward Rochester have married and have a son. But Jane soon finds herself having to protect those she loves… "          - goodreads

A new book and teacup, Scottish shortbread and 
wild strawberry tea?
You know what I'll be up to today !

What a lovely surprise! Receiving a gift basket filled with these tea things would be such a treat! The teacup is lovely and what a nice way to enjoy some time; tea, shortbread, and a novel. Yummy! Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings, milady - and joy to you as you decidedly ENjoy your gift basket. I love your new cup, to be sure - but am a bit green over your new read - and frustrated that my reading time seems down the tubes this summer as I'm making a career change and the projects ahead of me to get me in gear keep me away from my reading corner! Gah! I have a Jane Austen mysteries series like your Jane Eyre, here. Enjoy!
