Tea With Vera the Mouse & Friends

Some of you may remember our friend Vera from Marjolein Bastin's books. She has many delightful friends, and some of them are my friends too.

Whenever they come for a visit we get out the tea things. Naturally.

Life always gest interesting when Vera comes to visit. She has such an original way of doing things. Like camping out in a flower pot!

But she can be very down to earth and have a simple tea with us.

It seems like everyone comes when Vera is about. We have to buy lots of milk for everyone.

And yummy goodies too!

But is there anything lovelier than a tea with friends in Summer?

I hope your Tea Time is wonderful too!
Ciao! for now!

  3. Oh, how cute this is. I remember seeing a tea set for children called Brambley Cottage or something like that. I was thinking this little mouse was in it. I always loved that little china tea set. You reminded me of it with this post. Your tea is lovely you china charming and it was so nice to visit with Vera.
