I had planned to put out some cups and saucers for our tea today but decided to use a couple of mugs from my new Lenox 'Butterfly Meadow' dishes instead. Not brand new, I ordered them in April from William Ashely in Toronto after seeing the pattern in Florida back in March. As we flew down this year I couldn't bring a set of dishes back but did buy 4 fruit bowls and then hunted back at home where I could purchase the rest of the dishes.
There's a mug for both you and I with a yellow butterfly on it. The scalloped edges are on all pieces as well as flowers, butterflies, bees and dragonflies - I love them all.
I baked some cheese scones too that are nice to have with a casual tea with friends.
I like to join these nice ladies for tea each week and I hope you'll visit them too.
