Every afternoon at half past three or thereabouts, I put the kettle on
and have a cup of tea.
But I love having company for tea and when Lunch Buncher Joyce said that she had a friend from Arizona visiting, I immediately said "Come for Tea"!
Tea in the dining room
A Spode blue and white teapot, a fruit bowl filled with gourds and my two blue and white pheasants . . . it's now November, perhaps I should get out the turkeys!
Sandwiches and sweets -
cucumber sandwiches and a choice of three sweets --
Pumpkin bread, a white frosted white cake and sugar cookies cut with the pumpkin cutter and sprinkled with orange sugar
And scones -- hot, fresh from the oven
Served with cream and jam
The Spode Camilla is my "best" blue and white transfer ware tea ware.
We three had a lovely afternoon and all too soon they said goodbye and were on their way!
