Tea on Tuesday 21

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!

Happy Tea on Tuesday!

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!

Tea on Tuesday & Halloween Bag Swap

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.


I participated in a Halloween bag swap
with the Bloggerette Sorority
The person who received my name was Jo, from
That's my Story

When my package came....I ripped it open (after I took pictures of course!) She sent me some really thoughtful and
cool stuff
!
Before I ripped into the bag.


AFTER!
Check out the cute socks and the awesome BOO

banner!

Here is the bag I made for my secret swap sister
Jo@lazyonloblolly

Here are the goodies I slipped inside her bag.
This was so much fun!
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Tea on Tuesday 17

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!'

Tea on Tuesday 16


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.

My GREAT find of the summer 2011

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
YOU will find!

Tea on Tuesday 14


Good Day, all my Tea Friends!


I have missed you!


This is Tea for Two at my house.


Most of the dishes you see, were purchased at 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!

I am linking up with Between Naps on The Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Tea on Tuesday 11


This week I made my first attempt at making
Madeleines

I used Barefoot Contessa (Ina Gartens) Coconut Madeleines
recipe and it was YUMMY!
I bought the pan at a cake decorating shop

Here is the first batch, a little to brown but still tasty.
They smelled so good baking!

Here is the next batch....just right!


I also made some chocolate covered strawberries
(you know I needed something healthy)
to go along with these delicious cookies.....

Here is the finished sweet treats!
My tea of choice with this was
double bergamot-earl grey made by Stash
and what a treat it was!
Please visit some more tea-on Tuesday friends Here!
