Something Simple

I just love three day weekends! In honor of President Lincoln's birthday I have the day off from work. I began my day with an early morning dog walk and then settled back home with a cup of Twinings Lady Grey tea. My good friend purchased this tea in London for me during a recent trip along with English Breakfast and Assam. It's not a regular tea I drink, but I do enjoy its lemon flavor and believe it would make a great iced tea. 
While hosting larger afternoon parties is fun, I always look forward to having one or two friends over for a casual cup of tea. On this rainy morning I invited a friend for tea, bagels and strawberries. Definitely simple! Nothing too fancy! I really cherish these relaxing times connecting with friends over tea.

My friend quilted this padded trivet and the pink depression glass plates were purchased at a local antique fair.





About thirteen years ago I found these English bone china "mugs" at a department store in Ireland. I bought four of them and use them all the time for brunches. They work equally well for coffee and tea. I love their vibrant colors.
