This morning I decided to start the day off with a pink tea. And of course, having been born with a ‘sweet tooth’; some crumpets were involved too.
My jars filled with pink treats were perfect for such an occasion.
I always snag up anything pink to fill my jars for Valentines. Here we have grapefruit sours, marshmallows, and pink malted milk balls.
See the cute little striped cookies? I brought them home from Hawaii when we were there in Oct. I spied them and knew they would be perfect for Valentines. Do any of you do that? Or am I the only crazy lady out there? lol!
For this tea I am mixing old with new. One of my pink depression glass teacups and saucer with a newer dotty tea pot. Notice the fun tile? My sister gave it to me one year. I’m not even a big fan of chocolate, but I think it’s so cute!
I am serving up herbal raspberry tea. Doesn’t that sound yummy? And like I said, a few crumpets. On Saturday we had an open house for my FIL’s 87th birthday. I made all of the goodies. I got a bit carried away and made more than we needed. I gave as many away as I could but alas I still have some. Guess hubby and I will have to eat them. What’s a girl to do throw them out? Of course all of the sugar cookies were eaten (my favorite), but we still have Magic Cookie Bars, Brownies, Scotcharoos, and Choc. Chip Cake Bars. I better hide the scales for a week or so.
This sweet little serving tray was a thrift find from the St. George D.I. one year. It was only $5. Awfully cute! The creamer did not come with it. I already had it. I’ve been picking up a few things here and there for years.
Faux cupcakes and a book of poems .
My white throw from Ikea works perfectly for a pink ‘Valentines’ tea! Thinking I should have not been so lazy and tied each leg with a pink bow. It’s not like I don’t have plenty of ribbon. Thought about it, but laziness won out.
Okay, okay, I just couldn’t stand it!
Cuter, right? Even if I did need to straighten the right leg better. Oh well, this time laziness did win out. Not about to fix it and take another picture. lol!
Leaving you with a sweet poem from the book by Emily Dickinson.
Love is anterior to life,
Posterior to death,
Initial of creation, and
The exponent of breath.
And one I wrote this morning. Not quite like hers.
How about you? do you enjoy writing poetry? Mine will never be published, but still I enjoy giving it a whirl.
My love, you are the one I adore.
When we’re apart,
I long for you even more!
It’s been that way from the very start.
Now I know why,
you are the one who stole my heart!
I will be sharing with:
