My friends, come and join me for tea as we celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
I've brewed a pot of loose leaf jasmine green tea and put it into my Royal Albert 'Val D'or' coffee pot since it coordinates with my teacup.
I have two of these Phoenix bone china shamrock teacups that belonged to my husband's grandmother who came from Ireland.
Since I don't have a shamrock cookie cutter, I used a simple fluted one for the scones and have spread some marmalade on this one. The little shamrock leaf is from one of my oxalis plants and you can read about the history of shamrocks here.
A sweet little napkin with a crocheted lace edge has my shamrock lapel pin sitting on top.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll stop over at Rose Chintz Cottage where Sandi is the host for Tea Time Tuesday. I'm also linking with Kathy at A Delightsome Life where each week the loveliness of life is celebrated as so aptly portrayed in Victoria magazine.
