Victoria Woodhull Tea 2016

Hello Friends!
I just popped in to share some photos of a fabulous tea at the 
Oregon Ohio Historical Society and Museum.
The Oregon Historical Society holds 2 teas a year 
honoring First Ladies.

Even though this lady was never a "first lady" she was the very first lady
to ever have her name on the presidential ballot; her name was Victoria Woodhull.
Much to my surprise she lived a very public and colorful life.

This tea seated 48 ladies, with 2 seatings held a day apart.
My sweet friend Betty played the part of Victoria Woodhull and shared 
her rags to riches life story with us.
She did an amazing job!

All ready for the lovely guests to arrive!

~The Menu~
Homer Pork Dumpling Soup
Orange Cream Scones
with orange marmalade
and mock Devonshire cream
Victoria Ham & Swiss Sandwiches 
Election Day Chicken Salad Toast Cups
Chocolate Caramel Ballot Squares
Lemon Presidential Tarts 
Tennie's French Vanilla Trifle 

Two teas were served; 
Mrs.Patmore's Pudding Tea and
Raspberry Rose Hibiscus Tea,

The most divine tea cup!

 I am sure a wonderful time was had by all!

Hope all of you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

I understand~

Hello Friends!

Well here I am.....again, trying too make time in my crazy life
to blog (just not ready to totally walk away yet). I have noticed that
some of the blogs I have followed are no more;
I understand.

 Also I have noticed some of my followers have dropped off;
I understand.

I am still focusing on tea but I will be sharing how tea fits
into my everyday life.
Sometimes as a blogger, I worry about who is reading my blog
and if I don't get any comments, then I think- Oh,why even bother
no one is even reading it anyway.....
I am changing that! Its OK if it is not being read by everyone;
I understand.

So I hope you will enjoy the future content of my posts
and rambles and if you don't.... 
I understand.

So much life and so little time.
I just want to make the very best of it.

Thanks for your kindness
So lets have some TEA and cake!
