My friend Sharona now lives in London...and probably will forever! (note to self: plan trip to London to accept Sharona's invitation. ask sharona if we can pop over to Paris as well.) I was minding my own business yesterday when the mail arrived with something from The Queen! Or not. It was a package from Sharona which held the teacup and saucer you see above. She'd snapped a photo of it at a market and we both "ooh"-ed and "aah"-ed over it...but she sneakily told me that the prices were outrageous. Thought that was the end of that.
Sharona's note accompanying the gift said that she inflated the prices just to throw me off - as she was intending on surprising me. What a sweet friend!
If you have any London secrets to tell her about (cute little shops, flea markets, hidden gems), you can find Sharona on her blog, Today I Wrote Nothing.
