AN IRISH TEA TIME

Now that we can smell the air and
sense that off in the distance there
is just the slightest whiff of spring,
let's celebrate with a cup of Irish
Breakfast tea!




This was the coldest and snowiest
 winter for us since we moved to Missouri 
3 years ago.  So, we are ready for spring.





In the past, I have shared this doll which
 I purchased in Toronto, Canada back in 
the 80's and also the tea cozy I made
 from my Grandmother's napkin's she
embroidered for me when I got 
married in 1968.




This Irish Shamrock decoration was 
made by my friend Gina.  I have been
enjoying it in my kitchen window.

Lovely...I especially like the way that you repurposed the napkin your grandmother made for you. I am sure that she would approve.

Bernideen, love the tea cozy! What a perfect way to use those napkins--because I would never use napkins embroidered by my grandmother as napkins!

What a pretty St. Patrick's tea setting! Green is my favorite color, so I always enjoy decorating for this day. Your cookies are beautiful, love them!

What a charming tea time. It's been a brutal winter so spring can't come fast enough for me. Happy St. Paddy's Day.
