Tea Party for AJ and Me

It's Tuesday party time! Come join our lovely and gracious hostesses. Links are at the bottom.




I baked some chocolate chip cookies and AJ and I enjoyed them with some Whittard of Chelsea "Summertime Fruit" tea while watching TV.



I bought the teapot from London. I thought the size is just perfect for 2 people. The Kosta Boda glass tulip is from Stockholm, Sweden.
Just for fun, I decided to add the little Disney figure that I bought for AJ for her bedroom in FL. She has an underwater theme for her BR decor.
The tea towel has a hand painted bird on it.


The cookies were good and the tea had a wonderful aroma and taste.



I bought the bird tea candle holder from Crate and Barrel in Chicago.


And there's my little (actually not so little anymore) granddaughter enjoying a sip of her tea.



Thanks to our wonderful hostesses for these fun parties:
Thanks to all of you for coming by.

How wonderful. I love it all, especially "Dorey". By the way, is our teapot called "By the Thames" or something along that order? If so, I have a teabag holder that matches it.

The London teapot is just fabulous Christine.
Your granddaughter looks as happy as one of mine might when having her picture taken of drinking tea.
What will her friends think? :-)

I just adore that teapot from London. And I know that tea was so tasty, too. :)
I got several compliments on the napkin rings. Did you see? I love them so much!
Thanks again!

Christine~~~

This is the most recent post I can get to through blogger...I haven't a clue why. After this I'll scroll down to see the posts I missed.

The tea set up looks so inviting. I love how each of the pieces were bought in a different city! And all of them so pretty. I see that you are in the family room!! A nice place to sit back and enjoy tea and cookies. Your little Angel, AJ looks like she is so enjoying her time with you! :-)

xoxo

Christine, I think it is just so fantastic that you have such a close relationship with your grand daughter. You get to do so many things together and she keeps you really young and active. Gorgeous pics of all your adventures in the previous posts. I've been so neglectful trying to catch up with what all my friends are doing. I'll try to visit again soon. I see the world through your trips! hugs, Sue
