A Raspberry In Paris

Some dappled sunlight is coming through the window on this late afternoon. It's just the right time for a cup of tea.

A piece of Irish linen sets the proper note.

A casual mug, decorated with east coast lupins, waits while the tea steeps.

The Japanese cast iron teapot works its magic with the Parisian-inspired blend.

Just to keep the tea company, there are two overstuffed raspberry tarts. I'll share.

Excuse me, for a minute, while I choose a mug for you!

I'm linking with Silken Purse, for Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday and Sweetology for Tea Party Tuesday. Once again, I'm just trying something new.

Thank you for visiting my initial "tea post". I hope you'll return soon.

  9. Hello,
    I visited your blog today. It is so colorful and charming. While reading it, I noticed we have alot of the same interests. I like flowers, music, photography, and my daughters love to travel. Those rasberry tarts look so yummy, and the mosaic roses are lovely. I admire the beauty in roses, especially red. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. We recently did a post on "Tea Time" that I think you may like. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your pretty, crafty ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
