GOOD MORNING!Would you like a little Honey in your tea? A touch of cream?
Tomorrow is my birthday and I already have received some cards displayed at the back of the table....
This is my favorite cup, it matches nothing-ha!
And this is my beautiful loose Tea Brewing cup complete with lid!!
Do you like my cloth napkins with crocheted shell edging? I sell these in my Etsy Shop when I restock it which will be soon.
Below is a Kitty Sugar bowl that my daughter found in an Antique shop. I used to have the Teapot, sugar and creamer when the children were little and it is now gone, sadly. But when she saw it she thought I would like it for the memories and that perhaps I could use it as a planter....

RECIPE FOR SCONES
5 CUPS ALL-PUPOSE FLOUR
3 TABLESPOONS BAKING POWDER
1 CUP BUTTER SOFTENED
2 CUPS WHOLE MILK
OPTIONAL: RAISENS, CURRANTS, CHOCOLATE CHIPS
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix the flour and baking powder. Add butter until mixture is crumbly. Add milk and eggs. Mix into dough consistency. Roll dough to 1 to 1 1/4 inches thick. Use a round 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter to cut out the scones, and place them on a buttered baking sheet. For best results, let the uncooked scones chill in the refrigerator for 30 min. Bake 20-25 min. Serve with Devonshire cream and preserves. ( Recipe for Devonshire cream next Tuesday!!)
Thank you for coming for tea today and do come again soon. Don't forget to go visit Donna at Coming Home for her party this morning.
My heart to yours....
