Delicate Pink Tea

                                                                   Hello everyone,
                                  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.and are looking forward to the
                                  week ahead. Today, I am serving tea with a delicate pink theme.
                                  The pretty Shelley tea cup is a gift in memory of a favorite aunt.
                                                Pretty cupcakes and a French meringue.

              The sun is shining here today so I am hoping to do some indoor photography......after
                        I tidy up the house and do some laundry of course!

                                                                              Thank you for visiting,

What a totally lovely post! A treat for this gray,cold winter day in Alabama where sleet and snow is expected is misty and damp here right now and my dog and I just came in from our cold morning walk. Your posts always make me smile and transport me to a gentler, unhurried world where one can relax and be delighted with refreshment in beautiful china.
Blessings on your day!

What pretty teacups, Carolyn! Your cupcakes and French macaron make for a delightful treat with a cuppa tea. I wonder, did you make your French macarons? Happy Valentine's Day to you and your sweetie! Have a lovely week.

Love the ambiance Carolyn, with the soft pink and spring coming up...
I just put lovely tearoses in a vase and got my old teapots from the attic. It's really a good time for a bit romance in my home, with the sun in my livingroom.
Love your photos to go with it :)

Lovely greetings, MJ
