Tea Tuesday and Scones Recipe

Oh Goodness, I'm late, I'm Late for Tea Tuesday!!  A very important date!  It's time for Tea!
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....
"There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea."  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

RECIPE FOR SCONES

5 CUPS ALL-PUPOSE FLOUR
3 TABLESPOONS BAKING POWDER
1 CUP BUTTER SOFTENED
2 CUPS WHOLE MILK
3 EGGS
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....

Happy, Happy Birthday Kerrie Sweetie...
Oh how I wish I could join you for tea. We could sit and talk for hours. No sugar for me and could we sit out by the water? Bill you can come along too, after all it's Kerrie's birthday. I guess you better bring Isabella, she'll be crying at the door if we don't. How peaceful it is out here. I could sit here all day. Enjoy the birds.

Hope you have a beautiful day sweet friend. I am hugging you and hugging you. Have a wonderful day and eat some cake for me will you?

Oh and sweetie, seeing as how you mentioned your Etsy shop, please let me know if you are going to have some new washcloths in your Etsy? I love those that you made a year ago, and some of mine have disappeared, others are quite worn. Any Easter colors coming? Please let me know. I need at least 6-9 more.

Love ya and Hugs to you...Sherry
