Tea & Shortbreads

 
Welcome friends for tea.  As the snow starts to head our way, I've put the kettle on for an impromptu tea.  So please pull up a chair and let's enjoy a spot of tea!

Today I am sharing some pretties from Bavaria.


Pink roses, embossing, and gold accents are so Shabby chic.

 
What could be better than afternoon tea ... with shortbread cookies!



My favorite monogrammed teaspoon.  The pattern is Signature by International Silver #1950.   

 
Swooning over pink roses ...


A pleasant reminder of spring days ahead.

 
Mercury glass is the perfect accent for these preserved blooms.


 A candle burns to warm up a winter's day.



Thank you for stopping by and for sipping tea with me.
