"A joy worth repeating,
again and again,
warm conversation, tea,
and a friend." ---Miss Madeline
Hi there! Welcome to our home. We are joining Artsymama and so many others in having a tea party today, this first day of spring. Please let me take your coat and your umbrella. Oh yes, I agree, just the perfect weather for a warm cup of tea though it doesn't at all feel like springtime.
Please let my daughter, Olivia, pour you a cup of tea. She is having a gingerbread spice tea and I am having Earl Grey. What will you have? We also have chai, peach, red zinger and ginger with lemon. Yummy. Would you like honey? Cream?And we have lots of goodies today. Cookies and blueberry scones. Chocolates and fruit. Little wafers from Vienna (well from the Fresh Market but don't tell) and why don't we use Olivia's lovely tea set that Nana bought last year?
Oh, what about that tea set in the window you ask. Olivia is going to prepare a feast for the fairies. She is a wonderful hostess, isn't she? Thinking of everyone.
After tea, let us read a bit from "The Tale of Despereaux." We are most frantic to learn the fate of this sweet little creature. Olivia and I make a pinkie promise, the most sacred of childhood promises, to do this again each and every spring beginning. Thank you so much for stopping by. Please stop by soon to visit us again.
