St. Valentine's Tea

Welcome and happy St. Valentine's week!  I've a special Valentine Tea for you, so I'm so glad you stopped by!

We are having tea in my tiny sewing nook.  I've placed the tea pretties on my Grandmothers vintage treadle sewing machine.

I just love my new chintz teacups, a gift from my dear sister.  The sweet teacups are named "Rosalynde", made by James Kent.  So lovely for a Valentine tea!

You may remember my Crown Dorset teapot from a previous post.

The teaspoons are from my Grandmother.  Love the pattern "Primrose",  by Wm. Rogers & Son.

We need sweets for our Valentine Tea,  so I made lavender heart cookies.

I also have cherry vanilla ice cream in meringue nest cups.  To keep us warm the teapot is filled with Hanna's Tea Times tea  "Love Spice",  a black tea with cinnamon, cloves, almond flavor, and infused with orange.

I hope you enjoyed tea time today and have a wonderful Valentine's day!  Thank you so much for visiting!

I will be sharing this tea with Sandi at"Tea Time Tuesday" and Bernideen's "Friends Sharing Tea", special Valentine's parties.

Tea Time Again

Hello friends.  I am so glad you can join me for tea today!  It has been awhile since I've been at the little farm cottage and able to cozy up with a hot cup of tea and a good book on a very cold winter day!

I'm using some of my "old faithful" tea items for tea today.  I never tire of my musical teapot!  It always makes me smile!

I have lots of books to fill my tea time with.

I am so thankful for a warm cozy cottage to spend the winter days!

Thank you for visiting and stay warm!

I will be joining the following tea parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Friends Sharing Tea, Teacup Tuesday, and Tuesday Cuppa Tea.
