Welcome friends for tea this week. The pumpkins are in from the fields and for sale at the farms and in the stores.
Have you ever seen a peanut pumpkin? Click to enlarge for a better look.
It does look like there are peanuts growing all over it, doesn't it?
There is apple cinnamon tea brewing and I'm going to use this Elizabethan by Staffordshire teacup.
The autumn Victoria magazine from 2008 had an interesting article on the harvest of pumpkins and showed various types.
One of the baskets I made when I did ceramics back in the 80's. It holds a bunch of tiny ceramic pumpkins purchased from Bowring.
Chocolate cupcakes with fall colours. I feel sorry for hubby that I'm not that fond of icing, otherwise there would be a thick layer of swirling sweetness.
The turkey came with a small ivy in it years ago but today holds more pumpkins, soft wooden potpourri ones with tiny pine cones.
I hope you'll also join my hosts and their guests for tea today:
Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
Trisha at Sweetology for Tea Party Tuesday
Kathy at A Delightsome Life for A Return to Loveliness
