Tea Cup Tuesday-Afternoon Tea


I apologize for re posting last weeks tea.
 I am unable to be with you this week.
Hugs,
Terri
Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
I am having an afternoon tea treat today
because I have been watching the Hallmark Channel,
... where they are counting down to Christmas with holiday programs
featuring mouth watering cookies and holiday meals!
lol!


I spotted this product at Whole Foods the other day
and thought it might make a good dessert for tea time.
I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical
that a scone mix out of a bag would be good,
and this one is gluten free too.


 I added dried cranberries to the mix. 
They look pretty much like scones to me.


 Would you like to join me for tea?
Here is a cup of Chamomile....


 Or would you prefer this cup?
You get to choose as you are my guest : )


It has turned chilly here, 
making tea time even more welcome.

We can chat while we sip.....

  

Tin Roof Teas Chamomile is flavorful and hearty. 
I do love it, especially if I am having something sweet. 
It just seems to balance it all out. 


Would you like a scone or two with jam and cream?
They are still warm, and smell like freshly baked shortbread.

I will have some...
mmmmmmm!
Oh my!
This is delicious!
(really truly, what a pleasant surprise!)

I hope you like them too : )
And thank you to Moon Rabbit Foods,
for making my tea today easy and extra delicious!
I love finding a new delicious GF product!

*******

It would be grand if we really could have tea together...
ah well, at least we can pretend.

My cups today are....


The yellow cup with gold filigree is a Paragon. 
I do love this company's china.


The yellow cup with the golden stars is a Queen Anne, 
Another fine English bone china company.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
I enjoyed "having" tea with you today.
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terri,
Your teacups are both so lovely and I adore your pretty chintz teapot! Yummy scones from a mix too. I enjoyed having tea with you. Thank you for having me and have a delightful week.

Hi Terri! Well, since you're offering, I'll take the Queen Anne with the stars. What a perfectly beautiful cup! You always have the most beautiful cups and saucers to share - and photograph them with such precision. I am constantly inspired by your work. Now - that scone mix needs a try at my house. I shall have to look for it, though I don't often get to Whole Foods - too far. Perhaps online . . .
Joy!

Terri,I would so love to join you for tea. I love both teacups,so don't mind which one. The scones look delicious. I made some today too,from a scone mix by the Country Womens association. They are so nice and I added sultanas too like you did. My son and grandson popped in and polished them off very quickly. Lucky I froze some. I freeze them on and oven tray uncooked. They can then be popped in a hot oven without any effort when someone drops by.

I love the teacup with the little stars on the outside. It's so whimsical. A touch of fun. Yet very simple in design. I love that! It's cold here too this morning. But sunny! Have a great rest of the week Terri!

I LOVE chintz teapots. Yours is gorgeous! I have never eaten a scone so I will have to find that mix. We have a Whole Food store here.

I just saw this teapot today at an antique mall for $160.00. It is so beautiful. Needless to say, I didn't buy it at that price but I sure love yours! Beautiful posting here!

Everything looks so pretty I don't know where to look first! The star cup makes my heart flutter, it is divine! I could really go for one of those scones right now, my sneaky midnight snack..hehe! The chintz teapot is gorgeous, you fill my days with absolute utter beauty Terri!

Oh, the Paragon teacup is so beautiful! I'll have tea from that one if you don't mind.

The scones look delicious, Terri, and I think I would love to have the cup of tea with the golden stars, as I am preparing my soul for dreams coming true.

Thank you for the tea, you are a delightful hostess.

Oh my how delicious our little tea party is. I shall choose the Queen Anne stars cup with the scalloped edge. It was a difficult decision however our tea was getting chilled while I was vacillating. Warm scones with cream and jam...yum yum! Thank you so much for inviting me to tea. I love our time together just enjoying a sip and chatting. Creative Bliss Dear...
