After running errands all morning I did just exactly that.
First I had to set a table for this Winter Time tea!
Yesterday while at the grocery store I walked past a cart in the floral dept. These white roses were in there to be thrown away. I asked if I could buy them.
She reduced them to $5 instead of $15. I want to dry them and use them for Valentines.
They are a little old, but I love the look!
A little birdie told me that blue and white were the perfect colors for Winter.
I pulled out what few blue and white dishes I have. Thrift finds from a couple years ago that I couldn't pass up.
They are a mismatched set of four plates, four saucers, and two cups. The little bowl I already had.
I set this up in my basement family room because I knew my blue checked rug would go perfect with this blue and white theme.
The tablecloth is a vintage 'popcorn' bedspread that I bought at a yard sale last summer for $20.
It reminded me of snowballs.
Yesterday I cleaned my pantry and found two scone mixes from Lehi Roller Mills that I knew were quite old. I was about to throw them out and then I decided I would mix one up this morning and see.
Orange Cranberry. . .how perfect is that? Oranges are a wonderful Winter fruit!
Well my friends, they were quite tasty. I think the bits of fruit are probably a little more chewy than they would have been when they were new, but they still were yummy.
I frosted them with a bit of cream cheese frosting and topped them with some orange zest.
I also found the perfect tea, herbal orange.
It's amazing what one might find when they clean their pantry. lol!
I loved what it said on the tea bag!
Something we could all use now and then. . .A hint of zest. A moment of peace!
Well my friends, I've enjoyed spending time with you. Gotta go sip that tea and have another scone. (Yes, I've already eaten one.)
Had to make sure they were o.k. to eat!
