If I win by Linda T.

Alanna’s pen
has drawn
frond and fauna
with charm and grace

Little birds on a plates
holds the cake’s
final fate,
a guest’s sweet delight

of whimsy and bright,
locked in flight,
watch from a teacups
as we take a bite

When all have left,
the apron is set aside,
and the tea towel has dried,
they will sit upon my shelf to prettily reside

Your new capsule collection is amazing and so springy, Alanna! I've been waiting for it to come out for the longest time. I have this set in mind as this year's Mother's Day present. It'd be so nice to enjoy afternoon tea with my Mom and girlfriends over a set like this.

Dear Alanna,

I was in Batimore on the weekend where magnolias are blooming, green spaces along the roads are bursting with the yellow of daffodils, and planters are overflowing with pansies. Toronto has you with your lovely capsule collection ushering in spring. There are crocuses trying valiantly to peer out of the ground. Alas they lack the vibrancy and energy of the colours and motifs in your collection.

Please enter me in your contest.

My thanks.
Sylvia Sarkus

I saw a beautiful display of this collection at the Bay (Rideau). They're beautiful pieces!

ArlenePaterson said...

They are so beautiful, fresh and fun! The perfect antidote to this cold, rainy day week. I was downtown for a meeting this morning and went to see the display in situ but that part of the store wasn't open then.
Plan to see one on my table though.
Kudos to you and HBC!

Hi Alanna,
I went out and bought a tea towel from your collection yesterday! It made my day. Things are still pretty dreary in Wpg right now. But my new towel is a sign of good things to come!
Well done!
A fan of your work,
