Tea Parties

I just found out that there is another tea party in Blogland today. Martha who is hosting it invited me to join, so here I am linking with her at
C'mon and visit her too and check out those dainty and elegant teacups! Thanks Martha for the invitation!
Lots of tea parties are going on in Blogland and I would hate to miss any of them. It's a 3 day affair!

I am linking with

Cielo at for a Victorian Tea Party

Lady Katherine at for Tea time Tuesday.

Wanda Lee at for Tuesday Tea for Two

and Wednesday Tea for Me and Thee.

Please visit them and see the other participants also.

Our grandkids are coming to visit at the end of May and another batch in mid June. So I am having this mini tea set ready for them. It is in our guest room for grandkids.
What do you think? Could it qualify for a Victorian tea setting?

A few days ago, my friends and I decided to go swimming. So I prepared some iced tea and baked some cookies with oatmeal and white chocolate for our snack.

Ahhh! There's Nit! She beat me to the pool. I had to turn the glasses upside down so the bugs would not get into them.

The water temperature was perfect and it was very refreshing.

Thanks, Cielo, Katherine and Wanda Lee for hosting all these parties. I had a great time!

And thank you all for visiting.....really appreciate it and enjoyed having you!

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Lady Katherine said...

Oh, Christine! I love the grandchildren's Tea Set, can't wait to see a Tea with them!
I adore your Tea! The cookies in the cloche, is a wonderful idea to keep bugs away! The beverage server is beautiful as is the green glasses! Oh, get a few white doily and put over your glass of Tea, to keep the bugs out once you have filled the glasses with Tea. The setting is wonderful! I love the the Green! Now you have me wanting to buy larger cloches! What a wonderful idea for Teas this summer! The pool looks great, love the bistro set!
Yes, got your Email, I been so busy with blogger, my posts for the last two weeks have been so stressful. I finally got it half way decent. I been on the computer night and day trying to fix it where it putting extra spaces and changes the fonts. I will email you, remember I only found out last time about 3 days ahead and then some the day before. I know it even harder when your planning for food at home. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time Tuesday With Lady Katherine. I promise I talk with you soon!
