Thursday Tea-Time

Dear Reader,

A pleasant morning to you! We've been meaning for weeks to have a tea party and catch it on film, so as to participate in Emily's "Thursday Tea-Time", and yesterday we finally did it! It was a rather last-minute affair, since we wanted to invite Grandma (My mum) after planting all those raspberries.

The lilies from my birthday are still gracing the table

The first wildflowers of the season!

We had apples, carrots, and toast to eat, and peppermint/hibiscus tea to drink. We like to add hibiscus to whatever infusion we're making, as we agree with Anne of Green Gables that red drinks taste better!

We used our hummingbird teapot and vintage Hostess snack set, both thrifted treasures.

Thanks, Emily, for the great idea!

May your day be blessed and happy,




Happily the hyacinths are blooming!

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft,

and from thy slender store

Two loaves alone to thee are left,

Sell one, and with the dole

Buy Hyacinths to feed thy Soul.
