Tea & Romantic Country

                                                                      Finally, there is a hint of spring
                                                                      in the air here with the promise
                                                                      of milder weather in a few days.

                                                                     Now, it is time for a cup of tea.
                                                             I love these soft shades of mauve
                                                             and white.
                                                               Some of you may remember this
                                                               antique teapot that I got on a trip
                                                               to Maine last year.The teacup was a thrift

A bouquet of hyacinths add
the perfect touch to this old pitcher.

                                                                    Last week when we were in Charleston
                                                                    area it was a thrill for me to pick up a copy
                                                                    of Romantic Country with our summer
                                                                    porch on the front cover!
                                                               Inside are several of my photos as well.

                                                                  Some of my Downton Abbey Tea photos
                                                                  are also in it along with a couple of

                                                     I saw the magazines here locally at Indigo if you
                      would like to check it out.

                                              Have any of you seen the movie Cinderella?
                                                        I am going to see it shortly......I heard good things
                                                        about it.
                                                       I am joining Bernideen's Tea Time Blog for

Congratulations, Carolyn! It must have been a thrill to see the magazine when you're so far from home.
I would love to see Cinderella. Unfortunately I can't sit that long in a theater. I'll wait till it comes out on DVD. I'm sure you will enjoy it. I've heard good things about it too. Enjoy your week.
