"October gave a party, The leaves by hundreds came - The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name." ~ George Cooper
Hello everyone and welcome back to another Tea Time Tuesday.
I'm so glad you're here and I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
I am using my Royal Albert Flower of the Month - Violets teacup. This teacup was a gift many years ago from my husband's aunt. The meaning of Violets is faithfulness and modesty.
I am also using the mate to the teacup I just gave away in my Blogiversary Giveaway. The ruffled teacups came as a pair and when I bought them I had planned to keep one and give the other away. The other has just found itself a good home with our friend Carolyn.
The violet is New Brunswick's provincial flower.
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
Underneath it all is the lovely doily which I won from our friend Bernideen. Love the pretty Autumnal motif of purples, oranges, greens and golds.
For our refreshments today I have a lovely Cinnamon Loaf with cream cheese icing.
Also, some freshly baked tea biscuits, warm from the oven.
Cinnamon sticks make wonderful stir sticks for tea.
