Tea Time again!

Above: I baked some whoopie pies (these are RICH) and decided to take one up to my office to try it out.
Below, a new tea set I got at a yard sale ($20) this past weekend! I had the tray from a previous find. Raspberries are from my garden, roses are silk (from DH) purple flowers and lavender from my butterfly bush, the scones are pistachio-fig I baked a while back and keep some in the freezer.



Link to another Tea Time post here, Enjoy!

I am so glad to see you back at your blog. I missed seeing your photo's. You found a lovely set.
I guess the birds are all grown and have flown away.

Ciao

It sure is hard when your computer is not cooperating!!! (old computer) I will be upgrading sometime soon with a new approach, can't wait, but till then I am trying to be patient!

Thanks! I love the tea set. It is a bit dinged here and there and worn around the edges (someone called it Shabby Chic style) I just love it.

And yes the birds are all grown and fly around the house and trees here, there are many from all the nests in the area! We have all types of birds that sing all day, I love the sounds even at 4:30 in the morning!

Glenda, so good to see you here, thanks for visiting! Love your blog!

Love, love, LOVE the new tea set! As one who has had the priviledge of shopping with you in person, I can confirm the fact that you have "Shopping Talent Galore"!

Cheers!

What a wonderful bargain! I love it. I've been eyeing one at the local TS--they want $69.00 for it! Keep hoping it will get marked down. Your pictures always just look so pretty. So glad you shared this with us. Kay aka Luvs from GW

Thanks so much for stopping by! and for your sweet comments too! I love your pictures! so pretty and the birdies are so cute! awwww! Stop by anytime!

The shelf certainly comes in handy for collections and it was so easy, just some ceiling molding and a flat surface did the trick ;) Enjoy your weekend! ~ hugs ~ Cynthia
