Tea with Marilyn

I had (virtual) tea with Marilyn Mirabelli of Simply Splendid Victorian Afternoon Teas.

My friend Gail decorates her garden with vintage tea cups.

You can find the interview she conducted on her blog while we had "tea".

La Stanza del Tè, translated is The Tea Room,
an art piece by italian Maria Teresa Sansotta.
made with tea bags, fabric scraps, crinoline,
 approx. 1m x 1.40m
It was a present to me from the artist
for my 25th wedding anniversary.

Marilyn has organized teas at my home on several occasions. I remember the Mother's Day Tea with fondness. Very elegant and right up to my high standards!

The tea ingredients,
including scones and fancy sandwiches,
always come in a fancy box!

Thank you, Marilyn, for your interest in my textile career.


  1. Sandra

    I read the interview and it was very well done.
    The pieces that you showed of your work in the interview were fabulous. Congratulations on being such a person of note.

    And thank you for mentioning me. Really, I do appreciate your support and interest and value it very much.

  2. Just read the interview, Sandra....I was so interested to learn more about you. Had a good laugh too 'cos at about the age of seven I tried to start he journey to be a ballerina but the teacher told my parents not to bother...she recognized hat I was going to grow too tall.

  3. Great interview Sandra! You are very busy.

    1. Yes I am busy! I forgot to mention the groups I take to Italy. Those textile trips also take up much time-planning and organizing. But I love everything I do and I meet some great people along the way.

  4. I enjoyed reading your interview - what a full and interesting life.
