A lifesaving cuppa!



Never has the expression 'I'd give my life for a cuppa' been more relevant. Every year around May/June the Cancer Council encourages Australians to put the kettle on, get together with friends and organize a 'biggest morning tea' for exactly that reason, to help save lives. Every year my friend Jenny holds a biggest 'afternoon' tea and delights her guests with scrumptious delicacies both sweet and savoury served on the prettiest china.. yesterday was no exception and although the weather was stormy and bleak 37 ladies gathered together, sipped tea, had fun and by way of raffles and donations raised well over a thousand dollars.. well done ladies and bravo Jenny! Happy weekend, take care and stay safe.. p.s. below Aimee's contribution.. yum!

  2. A VERY beautiful cup and saucer. I think tea always tastes best in a cup like that. :-)

  3. It's great to see that the teacup is still being used.
    So many have switched to the mug.
    (I love the colorful cakes!)

  7. Nothing like raising money for a good cause while having fun yourself. So, why is it only the ladies get to enjoy tea and cakes? They look yummy, except for the ball bearings.

  8. So beautiful cup.

    I'm back. My vacation in Switzerland ended. There the countryside is so very beautiful, and I could have been there forever.

  15. Given half a chance I would be there with bells on. Throwing a "proper" tea party is almost a lost art - Jenny is a champ.
