This kit reminded me of a book I recently read that took place in Russia/Germany in the late 1800's. In the book it seemed as if they were often having tea and needing to spiff themselves up before these types of occasions, too!
Gorgeous layout! I love the way you used to the curl for a note and and colouring the ribbon to go with your theme. Your beautiful extraction looks beautiful and I love the way you used the fan as a mat, with the bead frame.
It's funny that you mention that book! My grandmother was Russian. I remember when we would visit her - Grandma, Mom and I, would get dressed in our nicest outfits, including hats, gloves, perfume and accessories. We would go shopping, then stop at a local tea shoppe. Such a cool memory! :-)
