We really call it the
"Tea in the Parlour"
has a much better ring to it
(especially when one spells it the English way with a "U"
And so, for today,
the living room is a parlor
When friend Shirley Ann came to call
We had lunch together and I set the coffee table up for tea
when we came back after lunch
Alas, not baked by me
But bought by me
at Whole Foods the day before
An English silver server is perfect for scooping up a cookie
(if we don't want to use our fingers!)
Crown Stafordshire Roc Bird Tea plates
Spode Famille Rose cup and saucer
And my grandmother's tea pot
Tea for Two anyone?
We talked and sipped and munched and had a lovely afternoon
before she had to say goodbye and head back to her little Missouri town on the prairie.
