A Winter Day Tea

                                                                        Hello everyone,

                                                                  I hope your weekend is going
                                                                  well. It seems we went from spring
                                                                  to winter overnight here as we had a lot
                                                                  of snow fall yesterday and last night.

                                                                  I made one of my favorite
                                                                  muffins to go with our tea ~
                                                                  apple cranberry crumble muffins.
                                                                  I think you would like them too.

They are nice and moist.

                                                                   The muffin recipe is from my
                                                                   Robin Hood Baking Festival
                                                                  cookbook that has lots of delicious
                                                                   recipes. Hope you can read the recipe.
                                                                    I cut back on the sugar as I don't like
                                                                    my muffins too sweet.

                                                                This handmade smocked dress
                                                                has been on display in my kitchen
                                                                since it was given to me. I love it
                                                                and my kitchen/dining room has
                                                                all my red and white transferware
                                                                 on display so the dress fits right in.
                                                                  Since, we ate all the muffins,it
                                                                  is scones and tea now.
                                                                     Love having a fresh bouquet
                                                                    of tulips and these match my
                                                                     red and white transferware nicely.
                                                                          Tea time.

                                                      I took these shots through windows this
                                                       pretty with the sun shining
                                                                on fresh white snow.

                                                                        Hope you enjoy a lovely
                                                                        tea time this weekend.

You've set a welcoming red and white tea table and the tulips are a vibrant shade of red to match.

The snow scenes look so pretty, but I have to confess, my thoughts have turned to spring now, and I would not want to see snow!
