Two for Tea & Tea for Two

I just adore this beautiful sapphire blue tea set with the shots of gold and green accents.  There is nothing like a spot of tea, especially in the winter.  In my life sitting and having tea is am modern day luxury.  No, not tea as your run out the door, out of a mug (although if it were out of a mug it would a be a fish's eddy mug) but hot tea, in a nice pretty tea cup with all the accessories - a beautiful tea pot, sugar jar, fine linens and of course the yummy little crustless sandwiches.  I challenge you to slow you day and invite a dear friend over for a spot of tea.  
Here are a few things that may make your tea party a little more precious:

When you were a kid do you remember playing the game of "when I grow up I want to be a...."  How many of you thought you were going to be a teacher, an astronaut, a dancer or even the President?  Do you think when Mr. Obama was a young chap he thought he would become the commander and chief himself?
   Well today is his big day...

Slim Chance

Slim Aarons somehow found the way to mix work and play.  It tends to seem his best photographs were taken poolside at some fabulous party.   Who wouldnt like their office to be in the pure sunshine of a great party, especially considering the temperatures in New York today.  So for those of you not covered in suntan oil take a glace at some of Slim's best moments.
