Thanks so much for having all of us over. mmm, that tea DOES smell yummy! I love your tea cozy, it reminds me of the one my Grandmother in Holland used. Every day after school I would have tea with her.

Hope you can visit Claudette (and me!) today for some tea and cakes. :) Lidy


Hello! Thank You for welcoming me into your home for tea! Your tea cozy is so delicately beautiful and your setting IS cozy! Perfect for today...the raindrops are falling all around for the spring blooms yet to come! Some "coincidences...I set up my tea on Marble also...a marble top coffe table, we are remodeling our Kitchen and I have finished my cupboards (since they were in perfect conditoin)very similiarly to yours. Finally and yet to come for us...a type of marble that I have to still find that is very close to your counter tops! I love your taste and in making a "cozy home"!
With Kindness,


Mmmmm... nice! Happy Spring to You as well!


I just love the green's so sweet!


I love your tea set...beautiful! Happy Spring!


How beautiful it all is...
I can smell the tea. Yum...
Your photos are just fine...I loved the cutters and the little chickens.
Your home is just so pretty.
Oh yes, I have a magazine addiction too. AND, I have been guilty of buyingone that is to come via subscription...just because I could not wait. Aren't we awful? *laugh*
I LOVE ME Home Companion and all things ME. I met her in St. Louis at the dediation of her star on the
St. Louis Walk of Fame. She is wonderful.
Have a sweet Spring!

I'm sorry that I missed the party today...and your contribution was just lovely! I love the china and linens.

I enjoy stopping by and visiting often, and you are on my list of favorties. It is so nice to talk with you...



Nice to meet you at this great tea party. Your tea sounds absolutely delicious. It sounds like "my cup of tea" - ah go ahead and groan - bad pun.


Hello, just stopping by.. Beautiful tea set..

Vickie C

Sounds like wonderful teas and I love your china. It's nice to meet so many new people. This tea party is a wonderful event.


Hi Allie! I tried to send you an email, but it bounced back. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderfully sweet comments today. This tea party was far beyond anything I had expected. It was so much fun and I’m glad everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thanks for all your enthusiasm and encouragement.

Off to bed for happy spring dreaming!


Wow Allison - what a busy tea time!! My gazebo was groaning from the weight of all those who visited and guzzled my Harrods Earl Grey and(hate to say this)cute Wal-Mart cup cakes - shhh, don't tell that's where they came from!!
Your tea spread looked so charming and I know I'd enjoy sampling the chocolate & orange flavor. The tea cozy is adorable - where did you find it?
So late - many comments to answer - everything so sweet today.
Until next time - Happy Spring.
