Happy Spring and a Thank You...

My Dearest Friends,
Thank you so much for your patience between visits. My real life keeps me away from The Tearoom more often than I would like. But we won't speak of it now for I am here to escape and visit with you, my very dear friends.

Spring is creeping closer and closer by the day now! Soon, we will be able to fling open the French doors and have our tea on the lawn again!

Spring makes me so happy and there are just so many reasons...

I love animals and rabbits are some of my favorites! I love to see rabbits everywhere around Easter-Time, even that very silly Cadbury Bunny, who clucks like a chicken! And what better time to re-visit (or introduce yourself for the very first time) to my friend "Harvey"! This beautiful and funny movie was made in 1950 and stars James Stewart. I do highly recommend this film and if we were all together on one of those days when the weather was having a problem deciding to behave or not, I would show it in the Tearoom while we sipped hazelnut hot chocolate from big mugs (a change from tea doesn't hurt anyone, does it?).

I also love all the images of little fluffy chicks and found this lovely one posted on my dear friend Marie-France's freebie image site (Unfortunately, her lovely site is now closed.)

And no matter how dismal the day has been outside the house or inside your heart, spring flowers are just the thing to cheer you up! First the snowdrops and crocus, next the daffodils and hyacinth and tulips (not to forget the sweetest mini iris that used to bloom at the same time up the street from where we lived in Washington).

Also, I just wanted to let you know that I recently had the loveliest surprise! Another dear friend, Anya of Couture Millinery Atelier, has given me a blog award!!! Thank you so, so much Dear Anya! It is such an honor to receive this award from her! Her lovely blog is so fascinating! Please do yourself a favor and visit her often!

(Thank you, Dear Anya, for your patience while I got things under control here before posting your lovely award.)

...more lovely news of spring to come!
