Last year one of my favorite work peeps spent the Christmas Holiday in Merry old England and brought back two Whittard of Chelsea Tea cups.
She donated them as give-aways for last years tea party and I was desperately trying NOT to covet them, but as staff I wasn't allowed to be entered in the drawing (rude, don't you think? Me too). Anyway the two cups went to two OTHER lucky women.

About three weeks ago I received this very cryptic call from her asking me if I had ever bought one. "No." I said sadly, "I couldn't find anyone here in the states that carried them." When I came into work Thursday this darling set was sitting on my desk. Is this the cutest tea cup you've ever seen? The little hamster is too darling for words and the bun is such a sweet hostess with her little tea pot.
Oh! There's a store somewhere in San Diego that carries them. I think I'll have to find where they are.
Pinkies up!

What a nice surprise for M to do that for you! I hope they are sold in San Diego as I'd love to buy a set.

Hugs, Pat
