Welcome friends for tea this week. When I was in Florida during February, I found a flea market vendor that carried lots of table runners.
A dainty teacup with lavender eludes me but I am constantly in search. I opted for this lavender mug today which was gifted to me from a sweet blogging friend. The tea strainer has a butterfly on the end and the bowl is a sunflower.
Monk's Blend, a long time favourite will pair nicely with the pie I made. I have a number of metal tins I store my tea in and a labeller to attach their name. (yup, fan of Martha Stewart) How do you store your tea? Leave it in the bags it comes in or in canister of some sort?
The pie. Kentucky chocolate, and as decadent as it sounds! The recipe is from tea blogging friend Angela at Tea with Friends and I know she recommended not to use a deep dish pie plate but I forgot. The result was a big fan of pastry around the sides and next time I shall pay closer attention to details when reading a recipe. You can follow the link to visit Angel if you would like her recipe.
Don't you love it when bloggers share yummy things! Thanks Angela.
I purchased a small pot of mixed spring bulbs from the grocery store and they are a real joy on the kitchen table. The only thing left to bloom is a couple of grape hyacinths.
Thank you for joining me for tea today, and I hope you will visit my hosts and their guests.
