Time for a Tea Break

Terribly sorry to be late to the tea party~ I just couldn't seem to get away from work. I only have a few minutes before I have to be back, but I am definitely in need of a small respite & have been craving some Autumn treats.



This sweet little plum colored teapot was a recent gift & is just the right size for two servings. The lace draped cup made me smile when I saw it in the shop; even though I already have too many cups for my cabinets, I just had to pick it up.
I chose a blend of Dragonwell Green & Ceylon Peach tea; I think it will set off the pumpkin pie & the mixed nut & berry brittle I discovered. Looks like a warm drink will be in order today- the temperatures haved cooled & the wind is mighty brisk.



Oooo~ I'm so excited! My Ravelry invite came today; you can find me at megsgarden

This looks lovely! I just tasted some pumpkin loaf the other day, and it completely put me in the fall frame of mind! (The cold, foggy mornings don't hurt, either.)

Hi Meg, I am so glad you stopped by my blog. So nice to meet you. I laughed out loud at your column on the ways you embarrass your children. When my boys were little and would start acting up in a store I would start talking gibberish to them very loudly. Stopped their misbehavior every time. ~ Visit anytime and I enjoyed your tea party and could gobble that pumpkin pie right up. :) Lynn
