The lavender . . .
The lace . . .
An antique linen runner edged in handmade lace. (I have four matching placemats as well)
The occasion . . .
A "Welcome Home Tea" for friend Sally who's been away visiting her son.
More lavender in handpainted cups and tea plates. Violets -- perfect for a spring tea!
And since it's special, the Victorian wee epergne holds the wisteria and I chose to use my silver tea pot to pour the tea from.
My pastry looks as though it was made for my plate.
Sally's is chocolate for she favors chocolate!
The pastries, alas, were not made by me but bought at a favorite shop, Andres (and one of their locations is just an hour away!)
But special pastries for a special lady . . . alas, since she left Easter weekend, there have been no fun adventures for most of April!
It is good to have her home!
It's Tuesday and I'm sharing my tea with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tuesday Tea and with Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.
