Welcome friends for tea this week. Yes, there's always room for one more...teacup or teapot and recently hubby bought me a sweet little blue and white teapot with a built-in infuser. The bottom says Dora Papis, Easy Life.
I've decided to set up my afternoon tea on the bottom shelf of the tea cabinet in the kitchen. The quilted runner you see under the teapot is made by a local crafter and there's a different one on each shelf.
A few of my tea books can be seen displayed along the back. If you like to read the Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs, she has a new release called 'Sweet Tea Revenge' coming out on March 5, 2013.
A slice of chocolate cake to have with my tea, calorie free of course!
My one and only blue and white teacup that has bachelor buttons (perennial cornflower) on it. The tea brewing is Cream Earl Grey which has little snippets of the blue petals of this flower combined with the leaves.
I'm linking with these lovely hostesses:
