Y'all know I always enjoy sharing a new discovery, and I've recently been absolutely immersed in the loveliest blog:  HATTATT       They just appeared one day, having joined us at LAWN TEA, and when I went to say Thank You---I was captivated.     

The photos of their travels and their interests and gardens and sightseeing---Oh, My.     And you KNOW how I am about WORDS------theirs are absolutely mesmerizing.    They share their time between England and their other home in Budapest, and I've just been wrapped up in their touring and entertaining and all the rest    And I marvel that somehow, they manage to answer EVERY ONE of their hundreds of comments, and look in here, quite often.

I've been meaning to mention them, and today, the words were just so absolutely breath-taking, I could not resist---reminiscent a bit of du Maurier, or perhaps Forster, and painted such a vivid (albeit bleakly heart-touching) picture that I hope you'll look in.

Above is blog address, and the post is entitled "A Nightingale Sang," and it's WELL worth going to see.

Hello Rachel:
What can we possibly say? This must surely be, for us, since we began our blog in April of this year, one of the nicest, and most unexpected, of compliments we have ever received. Your generous, kind words, and the link which you have provided, have touched us greatly, leaving us, unusually(!!), completely lost for words. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for all of this, and for the thought which lies behind it.

But, please, allow us to say in poor return what enormous pleasure 'Lawn Tea' gives to us and how, all too recently, we have discovered what for us is always a delightful read. We look forward to many, many more posts. Thank you, so much, Rachel.

Thanks for the tip and link, Rachel. If you love it, I know I will, too.

Alas, the Hattatt blog has a "gone fishin'" sign up as of today. I hope the disruption of service issues get straightened out for you folks in record time! So far it has been a fun read.
