Tea on Thursday 3



Tea on Thursday , sorry a day late... this week the theme was decay, and I chose Miss Havisham  from the Charles Dickens novel, "Great Expectations". Miss Havisham was left at the altar, and from that day when she was meant to be married,she wore her wedding clothes, and left the wedding breakfast to decay over the years. The flowers around her veil are made from tea bag paper. I thought they look just the way white roses decay , wither and turn brown.. The roses are simple made by tearing tea bag paper to a desired width,  rolling the centre, and gradually fanning out the paper to make the outer petals
