I am just showing you a simple afternoon tea break today
as I'm quite busy. I usually have my tea while I'm checking
in on some of my favorite blogs and not quite this fancy. :)
The weather is mild enough that I can get out in the yard
and start raking the tree debris on the lawn so I will
be trying to get some of that done this week.
I picked up this magazine recently and it has
so many beautiful photos of teatimes for every season
and wonderful recipes for tea sandwiches and sweets!
I know I am going to enjoy looking at it a lot.
The daffodils were cut from the garden when they were
closed up so tight they were just green stems.
After 2 days on the kitchen windowsill they started opening
up and their sunshiney colour brightens my day.
My teacup of choice today is by Paragon. I don't know
the pattern but it has several numbers on the bottom.
I have poured a cup of Chai Spice tea.
These two little Easter chicks stopped by to see what all the
fuss is about. They are quite vintagey aren't they?
I found these sweetly embroidered napkins at a thrift store.
There were only 3 of them but they were too cute to leave behind.
When I see daffodils I am reminded of this old poem
by William Wordsworth ~ The Daffodils.
This is the first verse of four.
"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils
Beside the lake beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
I found this poem in an old copy of
The New Brunswick Reader - Fourth Book
published in Saint John, NB in 1900.
I am linking with the following memes today and
hope you will drop by and visit a few of them too.
This week will be very busy for Murray and I as our church
is performing a musical drama for Easter on Good Friday
evening and Easter Sunday Evening.
There won't be time for tea parties but I hope to have a ham
dinner on Saturday or Monday.
Are you doing anything special for Easter weekend?
I hope to be back with another post before the week is over.
In case you don't get back to visit I wish each
one of you a very blessed Easter!
Blessings to you,
