Emma’s tea party

What a lovely Sunday afternoon I had at Emma’s tea party. It was actually Emma’s farewell party as she will be leaving for Bristol, UK to further her studies in less than 2 weeks’ time. She’s no longer the cute little girl in pink tutu that I remembered or an excited 8-year-old who pointed at a picture of a pretty little girl’s dress in a magazine and insisted that would be what she was going to wear as a flower girl at Auntie Evon’s wedding. Today’s Emma is a tall bright young lady who is turning 17 in a month’s time and is eloquent in her writing and wonderful at baking beautiful cakes and cookies, and she has definitely outgrown that pretty little flower girl’s dress! 😛

It was a few hours of munching delicious home-baked goodies, drinking cups of tea and coffee, catching up with old friends and with me sharing my passion on upcycling and my “A craft a week” project for 2013, and of course also with me spreading the word about my new blog unashamedly!
