  3. This was delightful. I am listening to the video now...so interesting. I wonder how many young ladies today have had such training and guidance? I don't think they teach this in Home Ec anymore...do they even still have Home Ec? Love the Jane Austen quotes as well. Thank you for this fun and entertaining lesson on proper tea etiquette. Makes me want to have a proper tea party now!!

  4. I love the second Jane Austen quote! What good is it to love in halves when we can give our all for those we love? I also wanted to thank you for sharing the video on how to set the perfect tea table. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it...and I learned a lot!
