I received my seasonal care package today. Rosemary used "Queen for the day" as her theme for my swap package. I am so thrilled! Rosemary really outdid herself on this swap and I only did a backyard picnic as my theme for her. As Queen Peggy my first order of the day will be to line my dressing table drawers with the lovely rose scented drawer liner sheets from my care package.
Since I am a Queen and that might be too much work for me I will need to rest and have a nice spot of tea. I can use the most beautiful tea cups, saucers and plates in the world from my care package along with Royal Albert English afternoon tea, lots of packets of Fortnum and Mason Teas, and some very special teas I have never seen before: Numi flowering teas. You steep them in hot water and they slowly blossom into breathtaking shapes! Each flowering tea can be used 2 to 3 times... isn't that just the perfect thing for a Queen!!!! Rosemary also packed some violet jelly from Fortnum and Mason along with a assortment of shortbreads and a package of little lemon ladies. My tea party will be perfect!
After such a delicious and filling tea I need to relax. What better way than to use my bath bombs from my swap package! Each one smells so wonderful I don't know which I will use first. While relaxing in the tub I will enjoy reading my magazines from the UK that Rosemary so sweetly included in my package.Well darn blogspot has decided I can't download any more photos. So the bath bombs and magazines will have to wait. Meanwhile its time for this Queen to go enjoy her day. Thank you so much Rosemary for such a wonderful package! I really feel like a queen. Thank you Robyn for getting another wonderful swap together. Now my royal subjects you are dismissed! (just kidding.. being queen has gone to my head) The bath bombs and magazines are pictured below (in my last post) I couldn't get them to download in this post so added them to old post. Thanks again Rosemary!
