I adore that cup AND that spoon! Your husband made that? What beautiful work he does! I want to reach in and grab that cookie :)

Susan, Jim is a very talented woodcarver but he usually just makes things for the family. He has done some beautiful work lately and I'm trying to encourge him to open an Etsy account. We will see how that goes. I love his little tea spoons also...the Macaron is from the French pastry shop In Kennebunkport. Have you been there? Delicious.

Beautiful photographs, Cheryl, and oh my goodness, how I love that spoon!

How cool is that spoon, lucky girl.

Every detail of your picture is a delight, Cheryl! the fine china cup and saucer with floral pattern, the French macaron and the elegant wooden spoon carved by your husband... love also the lace doily and the subtle blur which adds a nostalgic though cosy and warm atmosphere to the scene... beautiful and striking haiku... like you, I love Russian tea (Kusmi brand mainly...)

My Dear Cheryl,
Have you been to the tea house in Portland? (I think I have a ink to it?) . . .
Well, immediately I'm envisioning you and Jim with a booth selling your beautiful creations! What a team!
I know, it's much more work and effort at our ages, but . . . been there, done that . . . and it's just as gratifying to make things for friends and family.
However, this is such an extension of your talents . . . what beautiful photo cards they would be!
And how EXQUISITELY the gorgeous spoon and your romantic greeting cards would add to the ambiance of that tea house!
Blessings to YOU BOTH!

Wow! This is so beautiful...and inviting! And the spoon is just fabulous! Jim is so talented, and I know he would sell a lot of spoons, or any of his carvings. I etsy shop for both you (cards) and Jim (wood carvings). I will take a macaroon, but I've never had Russian tea.
