Afternoon Tea on a Wintry Day

I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit. I am joining in on Martha's teatime Tuesdays http://www.marthasfavorites.com/2011/02/collecting-tea-cups-and-everything-else.html. Thanks so much to our dear host Martha for putting this together for us each week.I have set the table special for myself to enjoy my tea on this cold wintry day. I am enjoying Celestial Seasons herbal tea, called Sleepytime, and a cranberry lemon scone, with raspberrry jam. Even though it is sleepytime, I enjoy the taste anytime of day! It's so nice to set a pretty setting to treat yourself.

I love roses! Can you tell? Mostly pale pinks, but I like white ones too. These I have sitting in a crystal creamer.

A lovely vintage hankie I purchased at an antique shop, will be my napkin. I think these are so pretty used as napkins.

I love this pretty teacup with the dainty roses on it. It is made in Germany, but has no other name on it. If anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks for coming by, and fix yourself a nice cup of tea, and hop over to Martha's for more pretty teacups. I'm also joining in on Lady Katherine's teatime Tuesday over at http://ladykatherineteaparlor.blogspot.com/2011/02/simple-white-tea.html. thanks Miss Katherine.

Hello my friend! I truly wish I could sit down with you and chat over tea. Hopefully that will happen sometime within the next couple months! :)

Hi Debbie!

Your beautiful tea included my very favorite flavors... Sleepytime tea, cranberry and lemon scones and raspberry jam.

I will have to plan a special afternoon tea for myself soon. Thanks for the inspiration :)
