Pink Teas Continue with a Lavender Pumpkin

I knew Sandi would be sharing her pink pumpkins and look how many more she has decorated this year! So...last year I figured Lavender Cottage should have a lavender one. I spray painted a plastic one I had and sprinkled lavender fairy dust all over it. Too bad you can't see the glitter better in this photo.
I saved one of the pink geraniums from the deck as the colour is a pretty one and matches the pot. Perfect for the month of pink teas too!
 While away for our Canadian Thanksgiving, I picked up a couple more pumpkin teas to try from Davids.
A new store carries Whittard teas and a package of darjeeling joined my trio of...
jams to try. Aren't they yummy combinations?
I am looking forward to trying the teas and jams. Guess I better get some scones baking in the oven for my afternoon tea!
I linking with my tea blogging sisters for the gatherings at:
Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
Antiques and Teacups for Tuesday Cuppa Tea
Bernideen's Tea Blog for Friends Sharing Tea

  4. I adore your lavender pumpkin! So, so pretty! I recently ordered Pumpkin Chai, a favorite of mine, from David's. I'd be curious as to how you like the two other pumpkin choices. Hope Thanksgiving was fun!
    Hugs, Beth

  19. It looks like I'm not the only one who just thinks your lavender pumpkin is the everything. Did you get that batch of scones in the oven yet. I was siting here thinking about someone my son said about getting another over to bake scones, and I make 3 batches of scones a day and they have 10 per batch, oh why am I thinking of that I''m on holidays
