Wow! What a crazy couple of weeks it has been! My tea today is Jasmine and my sweet is pumpkin bread.Yum! So far this month, we had a cookie exchange and I baked Applesauce Raisin. They are a Christmas family tradition; my Great Grandmother started baking them.
Here's the recipe I used above;they are really easy to make.
I didn't know it only made 4 dozen so I had to make another batch because I needed 6 dozen!
They turned out wonderful!
Next, I needed to make the table arrangements so these cereal boxes turned into.........
These beautiful trees!
We had 16 ladies turn out to share in the fun! The boxes were provided for them and here's is what they went home with-
Here is a beverage table set with hot cocoa, tea and punch waiting for the guests!
Here's a variety of snacks for everyone to enjoy! Can't wait to share what else I have been up to.... Happy Tea day everyone!
I look forward to Tea on Tuesday but have been so busy, I have not been able to participate like I would want to. Today I am drinking very strong loose Black Tea with milk (of course) sorry no picture of cup today. I hope everyone has a wonderful TEA on TUESDAY! Happy TEA day!
My tea today is Marco Polo- Made in France. It has been one of my favorites for many years. It is a strong black tea with a hint of fruity flowers, (that is how they put it on the tin) It comes in a beautiful black tin that you can refill. I love the way it smells when I pour the boiling hot water over the large black leaves....yummy! Can't wait to to savor the moment..... Hope all of you are having a lovely Tea on Tuesday too!
Hello my blogging friends! So happy to be back! My tea today is just plain Black tea and I really need it!
Things at my house have been crazy, everyone has been running around busy, I don't know what happened, September came and went along with my family, ha! Now October is almost over already! (darn!) Today I am combining 2 posts into one.
Tea of choice here was Earl Grey, great with chocolate!
Wow it has been over a month since I posted!
We spent a wonderful week in Florida!
What a relaxing week for the whole family.
We met some really nice 'tea' people while we were there, I
will post about them next week but just wanted to share some
private tea parties I had while enjoying the beach.
Happy 'Tea on Tuesday!'

Today my Tea is Jasmin because it reminds me of the beach! My sweet Mother-n-law passed away the first week in June;
it has been so hard for all of us. As a tribute to her, we are all going to Florida soon for a beach filled vacation. When my hubby was a kid they would all pile in the station wagon (2 sisters&1 brother) with dad at the wheel and his mom wielding the hair brush (in case of any trouble). They would meet up with 2 or 3 other families (in their station wagons) and off to Florida they would go! The stories they tell about their adventures are so funny! They made so many great family memories in those vacation years. So, with much happiness, I am gearing up for the beach with my hubby, 2 almost grown boys and my dear friend and sis-n-law and her sweet husband- 7 fun relaxing days beach side......hmmm I can hear the ocean now...... Hope you are having wonderful Tea on Tuesday! Please visit my friend Kimmie at art in red wagons to check out everyone having Tea on Tuesday.
Oh My GOODNESS! I just cannot contain myself...... The other day my son and I decided to stop at Salvation Army, just to check out if they had any' fun stuff' going on. Well much to delight I found THIS! A 5 piece silver plated Tea/Coffee service!
This beauty from the International Silver Company was still in the box! You will never guess how much it was....... Are you ready? (drum roll please....) $9.99 yes... NINE DOLLARS and 99 cents! Needless to say.....I am SO excited!
I have always wanted one to use at some of my more elegant tea parties, I have been collecting silver things for tea parties for a long time but did not have a tea service! I just love bargain hunting you just never know what YOUwill find!
Most of the dishes you see, were purchasedat goodwill, yard sales or given to me. I did get the fruit slice dishes at Hobby Lobby last year 70% off. The tea I choose was Organic Earl Grey. The scones are white chocolate chip (yummy!) It was all such a treat! Happy Tea Day to all of you!
Wow! So glad to be back! My Dashboard has been gone for a week and have had no blogger at all for 3 days. I sure hope they have fixed all the problems! Spring has finally arrived in my part Ohio, all the tulips have bloomed and lilac's are about to. hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
