Tea and Scones

It is a wet and windy day here today so it is cozy to be indoors. We even have our wood pellet stove going to take the dampness out of the air.It is hard to believe that some of you are still getting hot weather. Anyway, it is time for a cup of tea - can you join me?

I made some cranberry orange scones and they are still warm.

I like mine with some whipped cream and homemade peach preserves.

Today,I used some brown and white transferware dishes with my cream tea cups. The little teapot came from Winner's.

I hope you enjoyed our tea and scones.

Thanks for stopping by!

That looks so good Carolyn! I've never made peach preserves but I think I'll give plum a try. Our neighbour has a plum tree and has some plums to share.

You must have the best will-power ever. If I baked all this yumminess, I would weigh a ton...maybe two. It always looks so beautiful.

Be a sweetie,

Hi Carolyn

The tea and scones have made be feel a lot better, although I wouldn't normally eat fruit scones, I prefer cheese ones, maybe next time!! Jackie.

Everything looks so nice and delicious, you are such a great hostess.
No rain today in my part of the Netherlands but it's getting colder over here.
Have a great day, Jannet

Yummy scones and a yummy grandaughter!

Mary said...

Carolyn, I just know you made those scones for me! Peach is my favorite flavor for tea and for adding little dried pieces to my you use the dries, or fresh? Your brown and white transferware is beautiful and perfect for a cool autumn day. Lovely, lovely, lovely!
Blessings to you,

I did indeed enjoy my snack! But I enjoyed mine in the heat. It is still t-shirts and shorts weather here. And terribly muggy. I think we're going to get a little change soon. And it will certainly be welcome!

That's the one cozy good thing that comes with fall...a cup of tea and something homemade!

Rhondi said...

I enjoyed the tea and scones so much especially with the cream and peach preserves. I was pretending I was in England having a cream tea!
Hugs, Rhondi

Martha said...

lovely scones The chill is coming to the prairie and so it will be time for pots of tea (rather than pitchers) and scones. Your pictures make me so hungry!

Love your dishes!

Riet said...

Oh yes, the tea was great and the scones were delicious. That was a nice tea. Have a nice day

Looks like the tasty, because you could get right to the coffee. Beautiful pictures with very magical dishes. It again looks like a decorative paper.

Best regards Melontha

Sage said...

Your pictures are again so vibrant;I feel I could reach over and take a bite or that scone; thank you. Happy Thanksgiving!

CatHerder said...

oh my those look so good!

Sharon said...

Good enough to eat. Love the teapot.

Lacy said...

Oh Yum! I love the brown and white transfer ware. They are beautiful!

Madelief said...

Hi Carolyn, I enjoyed your tea and scones. Your scones looks different from our scones, but very tasty! Your preserve looks delicious as well. I have opened one of my jars of gooseberry preserve this week. I made it in the summer. It is a bit sour, but tastes healthy. I think it will be fine with some scones or sweet bread.

Have a good weekend! Lieve groet, Madelief

Janet said...

Carolyn...would you care to share the scone recipe? I always mean to make cranberry orange scones but never quite get around to figuring out how much orange...zest or juice...or both.


Linda said...

Yummy!! you must post the recipe. I love brown and white transferware. You did good in a purchase like that at winners.

howtoebookguy said...

I think we all hate to see summer pass us by, but days like these give us an excuse to just kick back and relax. Everything looks absolutely delicious!

Thank you for the oh so lovely visit.
I enjoyed your flowers and felt like I was having tea with you, and lying in the hammock, I could almost feel the breeze. The music was soothing as was your viriual hospitality. Thanks so much, many blessings.....Beckie
