As should be expected, the theme for this week's tea with Tea Cup Tuesday, Tea Time Tuesday and Tuesday Cuppa Tea is Valentine's Day, a celebration that will take place in a few days. It's a tradition that the British have been keeping for centuries, but today it's celebrated not only in the English-speaking world, but almost everywhere else, and more and more in this Iberian stretch of land facing the Atlantic. This year, it almost coincides with our Carnival!
Encantei-me por ele na Feira de Velharias de Aveiro há mais de meio ano, mas mantive-o embalado até agora. Gostei das formas delicadas, da decoração elegante, admirei a presença do tabuleiro ainda impecável... e por metade do preço que estava marcado, veio juntar-se à tralha cá de casa.
I fell in love with it at Aveiro monthly flea market over half a year ago, but I've kept it wrapped until now. I enjoyed the delicate shapes, the elegant decoration, the presence of the tray still in mint condition... and for half the price on the tag, it came to join all the "junk" I have at home.
