Tea Time Tuesday.....

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday!!! I hope everyone enjoys themselves, we have quite a few Teas' to attend so lets go. Some of my favorite memories of Tea are in I am on my birthday in Windsor UK, so excited to go to Tea. Tea varies from village to village (photo, below thanks to Mary at Across the Pond) is a typical "Cream Tea" which is served with Fruit Sconces (Raisin) or Plain scones and all the trimmings but very informal. Each pub in every village has Tea, each has its on unique set of Tea China , below, is a photo I took after I had tea at a tiny pub on a cliff overlooking the Sea, in Mevagissey, Cornwall. Tea was as lovely ( in a small pub) as it is, in the city of Truro in Cornwall.

Below, Tea at the famous Orangery, on the grounds at
Kensington Palace, the last home that Princess Di lived in before
her untimely death. It is open to the public, be prepared to
wait in line, but is it well worth the wait. It is the most beautiufully
appointed Tea I've ever been to in the world I hope everyone enjoyed Tea Time Tuesday and please come
each week......after all we should all treat ourselves to Tea
at least once a week....until then
Ta, Ta

For Gina.....

Memories from Charleston, when Gina and I were at the
Market in Charleston, we came upon a Man who takes
photographs of architectural features throughout Charleston
that look like letters. He has each letter there to purchase
individually or spell out names. This one is for Gina.
I was looking through some Esty posts and came upon
these that are made into notecards....
