Friday Tea......Come Join Me.....







I'm hosting a tea party...

Do you take it black??

With Milk/Cream???

One lump or two???

Do you prefer Green Tea??

Or a spicy cinnamon tea??

Would you like a side of...

My Shortbread cookies...

Fruit and yogurt???

Cake, fruit and yogurt???

Gooey butterscotch/chocolate squares???? 

Your wish is my command...

Whatever suits you to a "TEA"!!!!

Let's have a cuppa' and chat.....♥







  One of my very favorite things to do...

Is...

Have a hot cup of tea and a plate of sweets with my friends....

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have a cuppa and a chat together???

Imagine the stories we could tell...

Really meet the real person....

That would be incredible...

I would also have to include...

My tea buddies...

And you all know my favorite one...

And I think she has been at every one of these parties featured....

YUP!!! Miss Devon♥

If you are reading this Devon...

Say hi to my nice peeps!!!

They are going to join us for tea and cake....

VERY SOON!!!!





 And what Tea Party would be complete.....without FLOWERS!!!!

How about some Hot Pink Spring Tulips.......perfect!



Hope  you are all having a great day....

Some flurries this morning....still very cold....and snow for tomorrow!!!

Having dinner guests this evening...so I best rinse out these tea cups, and get busy!
We are having a rather traditional meal...
Scallopped Potatoes....Roast Ham....Asparagus with Parmesan cheese and cherry tomatoes...
Starting with my Leek and Potato Soup with rolls...
And one of my raspberry Banana  cakes with berries and Ice Cream for dessert...

                                                      *********

Enjoy your weekend.....

Thanks for coming to my tea party♥

                            Cheers!   :o)

  3. I'll take mine with milk and a hunk of that cake. You can throw a few strawberries and cream on top, too, please. Oh darn, now I'm hungry. Love your green dishes. I have some similar and must show you sometime. Enjoy your company and your meal sounds wonderful. I love scalloped potatoes and don't make them often enough. Have fun. Deb

  4. Oh Linda, how beautiful to behold....how I wish I wasn't on the other side of the world, so to speak, Calif.!!
    I love going and giving tea parties and have enough in my two hutches to serve a roomful. Your cups, your treats your dinner tonight...all just special indeed.
    By the way, I'll take my black tea with cream and sugar and my favorite would be a White Chocolate, Apricot, Walnut Scone (Which I have the recipe for) and a spoon or two of clotted cream.... Oh I'd be in heaven. Love your wonderful photography and the warmth that comes from your blog.

  5. I would love to join you for tea Linda. Lovely and pretty teacups and wonderful desserts. I can't choose which dessert I'd like best but shortbread cookies are a favourite for me. And I like cinnamon tea too. Black. No sugar or milk in any tea. Besides there is sugar in the dessert I'm sure. Thanks for the invitation. I'd be delighted! Hugs, Pam
