I may be older now, but as many of us know, there's still something about Tea Time, that will remain forever special. I may have tea alone, or perhaps with family or friends; but as you can see, the years haven't stopped me from including my dollies and teddy bears as very special guests!
From the moment I saw it, it took only as long as my quick and determined steps towards it, to sweep this new found treasure into my possession, bubbling with excitement at the thought of bringing it home with me!
Just a short and very simple story behind the pretty little vessel which I serve tea in today! I'm so happy you could join me for a cup, though! Please help yourself to cream and sugar, and some homemade muffins!
The weather has cooled down a bit, allowing me to bake some homemade goodies, and I do not take this time for granted! I found the recipe for these Sugar Donut Muffins from The Domestic Engineer! In her recipe, she noted that she did not use nutmeg, but I did, and the kids and I LOVED them! The recipe was quick and easy! They freeze beautifully, and I'm quite certain it will not be long before I make them again!
It's hard to believe the school year is almost over. Dear Son couldn't be happier, of course! I'm hoping he will make good use of this time off.
I am fitting everything I can into every minute lately, as I always have so much I want and have to do. I have gotten a good deal of crocheting in. The projects I've worked on are small, but enjoyable to make, just the same!
Of course, lately, a great deal of the red, white, and blue color scheme is going into each project as I go along! I found this "tea" towel at my local CVS, then just crocheted a hanging topper for it! Patterns for both the Rose Petal Potholder (above), and the Hot Pad Roundup (below), can be found at Crochet Soiree!
Twilight series, Eclipse! I am presently in the middle of Chapter 13, about midway through the book now! While shopping Walmarts over the weekend, they had Twilight t-shirts on sale for $1.00 a piece!... Hmmm... Guess what I'm wearing today! We watched the movie New Moon, and I loved it! While sitting around the t.v., I set out a homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza, fresh out of the oven! I found the recipe for it HERE, at One Crazy Cookie! Oh my gosh, it was DELICIOUS, so this recipe is also a keeper!
Blessings sampler! I got to spend some time with a dear friend yesterday, and I'm feeling inspired to stitch at least a couple of squares!
Today, I am linking with:
Sandi, at Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations, for Tea Time Tuesday;
and with Martha, at Martha's Favorites, for Tea Cup Tuesday;
and with Wanda Lee, at The Plumed Pen, for Tuesday Tea for Two!
My gosh, tea is being served every which way you look!..
So, thank you so much for stopping by to visit with me!
