AFTERNOON TEA


Taking a break with a cup of tea is always a pleasant relaxing way for me to recharge during a long painting and designing day. Recently, Katie from my Pretty Romantic Homes group, sent me a special mix of dried mint from her herb garden. The aroma is delicious! She is a fabulous gardener and grows a variety of herbs. Amy from Bunny Rose Cottage is also a tea lover and nearly every night we chat over tea. She also was sent this special treat. Today, tea is so good and I wanted to share the setting with you before it is all gone. The sweet hand painted card is also from Katie as she is a beautiful artist along with being a talented gardener. Thank you Katie for the thoughtful gift. I am really enjoying it! By the way, I am serving tea from an antique set that was my mothers dating back to 1945.
