Well, after this post, I’d be hardly surprised if I never got invited to a tea party again..! I bought a set of these teacups for my mother-in-law last year for her birthday. The set included a variety of poisons, such as cyanide, hemlock, and a bunch of other deadly concoctions that I can’t quite remember. The essential for a tea party full of guests you don’t like, don’t you think? For this little frolic in the morning light of the garden, I opted for a slightly less toxic mix – namely, elderflower cordial and lemonade. The pink and gold detail on the teacup was just the thing to match this pretty butterfly sleeve dress I thrifted in Christchurch over the weekend, but enough about that.
Can we talk about the hair? The hair, the hair… I have been trying to do this style for AGES. A braid which goes the entire way around my head, and best of all – keeps my fringe out of my eyes. I can just never seem to get past the part where the hair goes around the back and you have to kind of ‘flip’ your hands around. So, anyway, I darted off for a ‘quick’ visit to the room next door to get my jewellery – poor Barnaby must have thought I’d vanished – as I ended up being a whopping twenty minutes! Well worth it though, don’t you think? And if not, watch what you say – or I might have to serve you something from one of these deadly teacups.. Aha!
