It's Tuesday --
In between pancakes
(at church -- our annual fundraiser)
We decided to have a bit of Mardi Gras
(for who knows, cookies may be given up for Lent
(however, afternoon tea would never be given up for Lent))
In shapes of fleur di lys, crowns and mask
Frosted and sprinkled
In shades of gold, green and purple
the colors of Mardi Gras
Husband Jim and I had tea this afternoon
in the breakfast room
And a celebratory tea, it was
for we used the silver pot
And the delicate white cups trimmed in gold
Tomorrow, it may be tea only
I'm joining Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea. And I do wish that every one of you could have stopped by today and had tea and Mardi Gras cookies.
Yes, I'm still considering whether or not to give up sugar for Lent. It's hard to believe how hard the decision is -- just shows how much I like it!!
What a lovely way to celebrate Mardi Gras.
Love it all....cookies, table setting, friendship
Let the good times roll! Wonderful way to celebrate -- with tea! Happy Tea Day!
Having tasted several of your cookies - I know these are delicious as well as fun!
And Bernideen, this is the same cookie that you had! I've made THOUSANDS of them!
