Hello my friends, the weather here lately has been absolutely Spring like.
I know that we are in dire need of more snow, but I can't help but find myself enjoying it!
Last night I opened the door to find that a package had arrived from adagio teas.
Why not have myself a 'Spring Green Tea'?
Recently I was contacted by adiago teas offering me a gift certificate for a review of their tea products.
Oh my, did they ever have wonderful things and at such reasonable prices! I got this darling 'spring green' ceramic tea pot. There were lots of pretty colors, but remember; I was feeling Spring.
Isn't it the perfect shade of 'Spring green'?
These sample packets make 5 cups and sell for $2 each.
Today I sampled the raspberry green tea.
It smelled heavenly the minute I ripped the seal. And it is so pretty. Almost looks like potpourri with the bits of dried raspberries.
I have lots of pink and green dishes. I pulled out some of my prettiest for this tea.
Last week I shared my Pink Grate that I scored at a vintage sale. Couldn't wait to show you my white one.
All of the dishes sitting on it are thrift finds. I picked up the floral ones just yesterday.
The striped and floral dishes are a set I bought 3 years ago on clearance at Smiths Market Place. I love them! The little floral saucer and depression glass cup are more thrift finds.
Notice that I have my teaspoon of sugar ready? Well, the tea was so delicious that I had a second cup. Didn't even need sugar!
But sometimes we just have to add it to show off our vintage silverware. lol!
And while we're on the subject of silverware, look at this cute bird planter I found yesterday as well. $.75 cents worth of pure charm!
Perfect for holding teaspoons!
Flowers dried from last weeks tea were tucked inside the napkins.
A pretty 'green tea' for you and me!
I didn't do anything fancy, but wanted to show how these binder clips make fun place holders.
I was wishing that I had one of my raspberry chocolate chunk muffins to go with this raspberry green tea. But they were long gone so I settled for a store bought Danish that I drizzled a bit of my homemade raspberry jam over the top.
I will share the recipe for the muffins in another post.
notice my love for butter?
yes, this piece is for me, he-he! No worries, I have more for you!
Wouldn't it be lovely to have a bowl of fruit to go with this tea?
I love the little rosebud tucked inside each bowl and cup!
And of course we need some lovely fleurs!
Even if they are about spent.
I hope those of you who are still knee deep in snow are feeling a bit of Spring love from this 'green tea'. Warm weather will come!
And believe me when it does, it will put a SPRING in your step!
Every table needs a touch of whimsy.
Thanks so much to adaigo teas for these fabulous gifts!
