Last month, I turned another year older.
My talented aunt baked me this gorgeous strawberry shortcake.
It tasted as amazing as it looked!

I finally had afternoon tea at Tea at the White House's new location.
This was a joint birthday celebration with my friend. We both selected dessert-inspired herbal teas. Donut herbal (top right) tasted sweet and nutty, while the chocolate covered strawberry herbal tea (bottom left) was a delicious, fruity tea (this was my favourite).
The pretty tea-themed birthday cards.
The 5-year-old daughter of my friend (from the afternoon tea)--without any hints from her mom--selected this cute teacup image for my birthday card and even coloured the teacup in my favourite colour: purple!
My family and friends showered me with tea-themed gifts again!
This charming teapot is the perfect addition to my collection.
I'll have to share my 3 elephant teapots one day.
How adorable is this Chip mug?!?
A tea infuser bottle.
Teas! Teas! Teas!
A crafty friend handmade this super cute cozy.
Can you see the embroidered teacup on the back?
Lovely teabag holders in my favourite hues: turquoise and purple.
These pretty paper plates and napkins are almost too pretty to use!
Ditto for these notecards!
Purple strikes again: an embroidered tea towel.
An interesting historical book on tea.
I'm hooked on this present!
A reusable bag featuring teacups and teapots.
I'm beyond grateful to my generous and thoughtful family and friends for the fabulous gifts!
