Hello ladies and welcome to my St. Patricks Day Tea!
Since it is a big day in Ireland this week, I thought I would share a wee bit of green with you. My hubby is half Irish and proud of it, I might add! I have a wee bit of Irish in me too. Actually, I'm English with a bit of German and some Irish-Scotch mixed in for good measure. I suppose I'm more like a mutt but that's OK; even we mutts like a cup of tea!
green tea. The leprechauns are dancing a little Irish jig; they're so happy to see you... St. Patricks Day is coming, you know!
Speaking of an Irish jig, did you see Celtic Thunder last night on PBS? The boys danced a charming jig at the end of the show, didn't they?
My little fairy, Breena, has also joined us today. She has arrived, dressed in pink and wearing posies in her locks. Her lovely wings are just a-sparklin!
"Ireland~ Land of Heart's Desire,
Where beauty has no ebb, decay no flood,
But joy is wisdom, time an endless song." ~ William Butler Yeats
green, it came to the party today. I love the beautiful green colour and the sweet pink rosebuds!
Tea is liquid wisdom~ Anonymous
I am also sharing this tea for one set and the matching mugs. They're green with florals and butterflies. They just say Spring to me!
I've saved this green set for last. Hubby gave me this trio for Valentines Day. It is a Maxwell and Williams pattern and has a sprinkling of flowers and butterflies, finished off with a lovely soft green band. It is made of porcelain and the pattern is called Butterfly Garden.
Time is a great storyteller.~ An old Irish proverb
May joy and peace surround you,
Contentment latch your door,
And happiness be with you now,
And bless you evermore. ~ Irish Blessing
