Afternoon Tea

Hello everyone,
 I have some tea ready for you if you have time for a break.  

                                Some cookies on my heart shaped plate.
                                                Pretty pink hyacinths.
                                                     Some frozen yogurt.
                                                      More cookies.
                                                   or maybe a cupcake?
                                   Don't worry about the dishes-I'll do them after.
                      You might like my some tea in new Shelley teacup that I got last week.

                         Thank you for stopping by and thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post and once again welcome to new followers also.
    I have been doing my homework lately and trying to learn more on photoshop so I can improve my photos for you, but be patient I am a slow learner!

Today, I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
and Artful Affirmations for Tea Cup Tuesday.

Take care,

You always have such pretty china. The Shelly tea-cup and saucer are beautiful. I love to find them in shops although here they are sometimes quite expensive. Love your photos, Carolyn.

All the dishes are lovely and the baked goods too, but the tulips stole my heart. So pretty!

I'm thinking you don't need to learn anything, your photos are stunning. Sure wish computers had a scratch-n-sniff ability-your hyacinth probably smells soooo good. --Susie

Your photos don't need any extra touches. They are beautiful as they are. I love the soft pinks and pretty china.

Carolyn, your photos are top notch now. I agree with Maple. Not a single change is needed.

Where oh where did you find pink hyacinths at this time of year? They are among my favorite flowers! Susan

It seems to be a sumptuous banquet, not an afternoon tea. Count me for it and to help you with the dishes ;-)

It is always a pleasure having a cup of tea with you! I believe tea tastes better in a pretty little tea cup and I adore your china.
Hope you have a happy happy week!

I'm always in for a break when you have tea-time, your china is so gorgeous. The new Shelley teacup is such a beauty again.

A table by the window that includes the scenery outside is always so cozy. It's getting to be that time to pull out the heart cookie cutters but for today I'll enjoy yours with tea Carolyn.
I've been thinking about PhotoShop myself but I know it's pretty involved. Are you self learning, or taking classes?

Your table looks stunning. It makes you want to just sit down and never leave. Thank so much for sharing this beautiful afternoon tea with us. Blessings, Martha

Hi Carolyn,
I'm am very late for my visit, sorry. It's been such a busy week.
Your pink tea table is so pretty and the quilt you are using on the table is gorgeous! Love the perky tulips and roses in the window and all your china is lovely. I like your new Shelley teacup. I will be pulling out my heart cookie cutters too very shortly. Thank you for sharing your lovely pink tea with us and have a nice day.

Delightful presentation and I love the new teacup. Good for you for learning Photoshop. Your photos are already lovely but you will have fun changing their appearance in different ways. Let me know if you have questions!
