Catching Up Over Tea

Hello friends!  I finally have my lap top repaired and have some catching up to do with my blog.  Back in September I was excited to be looking forward to be part of the Southern Belle Tea Tour that Phyllis of Relevant Tea Leaf blog was hosting.  But, due to the hurricane Irma the trip was cancelled and rescheduled for next spring.  Phyllis had already made gift bags for us "southern belles" and she so kindly sent me mine to enjoy now!

Included in the darling  southern belle gift bag was a decorated southern belle tin filled with a special blend of Adagio tea, a sweet gold spoon,  a yummy scone mix which just happened to be named "Phyllis",  a teabag holder, and a teacup ornament!  Thank you so much Phyllis!

Behind the tea setting is a large puzzle my sister put together and glued.  Hubby made the frame and is now  proudly at the farm cottage.  I think it shows a lot of southern charm for tea time!

I am using my unmarked Crinoline teapot with a Royal Doulton teacup and saucer.

Cranberry scones and Adagio's Ceylon tea.

Every southern belle needs a pretty fan to cool herself and to maybe flirt a little!

I made this fascinator hat for the southern belle tea tour.  Easy to do!  A vintage shoulder pad, found feathers, netting, and a fabric rose plucked from a bouquet.  All glued together with a glue gun and a clip to hold the fascinator on.

Thank you for visiting me!  Wishing you a wonderful October!

I will be joining Bernideen for her Friends Sharing Tea party and Ruth for her Tuesday Cuppa Tea party.
