This saying by Edmund Waller came from my little "Afternoon Tea" book.
(book by The Clever Factory,Inc.)
Sometimes after a day of cleaning, washing and cutting grass you need a break, A Tea Break. I made chocolate chip cookies and made myself a cup of Afternoon Tea. I was feeling adventurous and decided to try and make my cookies small and placed them on a cookie sheet with a wire rack....oops should not have done that. They melted through the rack and did not turn out so well. It doesn't matter how they look, they were still good.
Here is the stamp on the bottom of the teacup, "Duchess" made in England.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
