Oh how HaPpY I am to have you join me today in the celebration of Kim's Blogging Tea Party...
I am sure The Victorian Parlor was decorated so lovely and smelled of sweet confections and warm tea. I just love visiting Kim's cottage, she is ever so welcoming and kind.
I hope you still have room for a sip or two of tea with me. Please join me for a chat as I just love to have company, especially with a delicious cup of tea in hand!
A friend? Sure! You are more than welcome to bring along a friend...Isn't she the cutest little doll...What is her name?
My motto is "the more the merrier" as I have prepared a setting ready for three. Nothing matches but that's the beauty of it.
I've never owned a beautiful china teapot. I admired many but I remember my Maw Maw saying "The pot might be pretty but it's what's inside that counts". That's been a long long time ago since I've heard them words but still today I am using her old plastic pitcher. And you know what? It still makes for good tea (& memories too!). My old grandmother, she was something else!
Oh dear, and don't get me started on the roses! Maw Maw would cut roses from of her yard and place them all over in the house. She wasn't big on the idea of a vase as she thought any old glass that held water within reach would do. (And it's true!)
With all of her windows open, that Southern breeze would come right through and fill the room with rose-scented perfume! Those were such simple times. Such happy times.
Oh I am rambling on...Please dear, have a seat and tell me all about your tea party trip through blog land thus far ~
Me? oh. I haven't had the chance to tea party hop yet. I've spent all morning cleaning, decorating and baking just for you! Speaking of baking, go ahead and take one of each, there's plenty!
I'll pour us each a cup of tea. Do you like sweet or unsweetened? I make my tea unsweetened so you can sweeten it up as much as you like.
Just grab a spoon and some sugar...
You love those spoons too? Yes girl, they are beautiful! Kelley sent me those spoons not too long ago. I just love Kelley, she's a sweetie. I love visiting her farm too but that's a whole 'nother story. You know how I can ramble on...
So what else have you been up to lately?
Oh come on now, let's not talk about the silly old economy and ruin our afternoon of delicious tea. Would you like another cup? Maybe some more sweets?
How has the weather been in your neck of the woods? It's been so crazy here in Southern Louisiana. It's been hot and humid and every day is a bad hair day. What's a Southern Belle supposed to do? I guess just stay out of the heat I tell ya. We should have tea parties more often just to curve that thirst and cool off a bit.
Go ahead now, tell me all about Kim's tea party. I want to know all about it. I am sure she totally spoiled you in vintage goodness so spill the details and make me green with envy~
Are you serious? While you were at the Parlor, Kramer was enjoying tea with ya'll too? I thought she'd have put him away in another room while having company! But in all reality, who could resist that spoiled, beautiful, furry friend rubbing around on ankles and purring as if he just loved everyone in the room???? After all, I'm sure he doesn't even know he's a cat!
Cat tea parties just wouldn't be the same as blogging tea parties. That would be much too 'normal' for Kramer. He would be totally bored and uninterested, what do you think?
My goodness, look at the time. I know you have more parties to go to. Time flies when you're having fun, we'll have to do this again soon.
Well I thank you for stopping by. I see there is a little tea and some sweets left. I would like to share them with my husband.
After all, he did run to the corner store to pick up some last minute ingredients for me. Now I am sure he is ready for me to pay my dues ;)
Don't worry about the mess, I have all afternoon to clean up.
You know, the whole fun of putting this together is worth the clean up, don't you think?
I so enjoyed my visit with you. I hope I didn't keep you too long and I hope you have plenty of time to have tea and visit with others who are attending the party.
Thank you for coming to the Blogging Tea Party hosted by Kim at The Victorian Parlor.
