Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

October Tea Time

The plants are all in
The breakfast room is now "green"
And the perfect place for a Fall Tea

With orange mums in an old blue pitcher
And ginger cookies for tea

October goes very well with blue and white!

I adore ginger cookies and to me they're usually a fall/winter cookie
It's always a great day -- the first ginger cookie of the season day!

I'm sharing my tea with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea.

Your giner cookies look very mouth-watering. Haven't made any in ages, but will have to get out the stuff and make some soon, I think. Thanks for sharing your delicious tea with us. xoxox

Hi Martha! Your blue and white tea is so pretty with those mums. I'd love to sit down for some ginger cookies. Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Your ginger cookies look delicious. Blue and white go perfectly with the oranges and golds of the fall, don't you think?

What a beautiful fall table and the whole display is wonderful! So glad you shared. I always love your sun porch and your transferware dishes!
