A Pansy Tea

Hi everyone!

Some of you may remember this tea from last year at about this same time. It is one of my favorites. Probably because it is loaded with the color purple and my favorite flowers, lilacs.

This week I have a gazillion things going on, so you may see a "rerun" or two from me. But, I figure I have a lot of new readers so, they will be able to see them for the first time. LOL Yup, that's me "figurin'".

I hope you enjoy your visit today!

Today I am inviting you for a light tea. I am featuring my Pansy teapot, matching salt and pepper shakers, two pansy teabag/spoon rests and one of my newly acquired teacups with pretty purple pansies on it.

A few other flowers are joining the party as well. I have a vase of fresh picked lilacs, my absolute favorite flower. Their sweet perfume smells wonderful here in the living room.

Here is the pretty purple pansy teacup I am using today. It is Sadler Wellington fine bone china (made in England)

A few different pictures before we bring on the refreshments.

We are having both hot tea and a glass of fresh brewed iced tea. I have a little sweet treat, praline pecans to go with the hot tea and some fresh sliced tomatoes to enjoy with the iced version. Now we have a little something to nibble while we chat.

I even polished up a couple of my misfit WM Rogers silverware pieces for your visit.

I also went out to our mint garden and picked a fresh baby sprig of applemint for our iced tea.

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit with me today for this week's tea party. And just a little FYI, everything shown today was bought 2nd hand. :)

Have a wonderful day!

Now, join all the other fun and fabulous tea parties going on!
