Tea Time Tuesday

Welcome everyone to my 17th Tea Time Tuesday!

I want to thank you all for your lovely comments about my tea time post last week. I was debating whether to share it or not but you all seemed to enjoy it so I'm glad I posted it after all!

Can you believe May is more than half over? My, time flies when you're having fun!! My pansies are up and looking wonderful. I love how they bring life to the garden with their bright pops of colour. I think pansies are somewhat like daisies; they're friendly little flowers and their pretty little faces just seem to bid you a good day when you look at them!

Today's post will be all about celebration.... Celebrating life and love!

My sweet hubby had a birthday ten days ago and I didn't make him his usual apple pie, which he prefers to cake, I made him a Trifle instead and he loved it!

It is pretty and it is delicious! Using cake, strawberries, pudding, and whipped cream, I made this lovely concoction which I must admit, we enjoyed tremendously!

Would you like to try some? I guarantee you, it's scrumptious!
Let's light the candles....

The trifle looks pretty in my red-rimmed dessert glasses.

There was a lot of celebrating going on that weekend! Hubby and I celebrated our Anniversary and his Birthday, and it was also Mother's Day.
Shall I pour you some tea?

We have much to be thankful for, Hubby and I! We raised three adorable sons together and today we are so very proud of them all! Have you ever noticed that children are gifts that keep on giving? We have been blessed with four darling grandsons and another grand baby on the way.
They are all such little sweethearts! Each one is pure joy in our lives!

Life is sweet!

I realize I'm sharing my Rose Chintz again but it is vintage and a pattern that makes me happy. And since I'm posting about happy occasions, I'm sure you won't mind. I promise, I'll have something new to share with you next week!Perhaps you would like to try a Raspberry Oatmeal Bar or maybe I can tempt you with some chocolate. Am I being naughty? Tea and sweets just go together like sugar and spice, don't you think?

"It was probably a mistake to pursue happiness;
much better to create happiness;
still better to create happiness for others.
The more happiness you created for others the more would be yours -
a solid satisfaction that no one could ever take away from you." ~ Lloyd Douglas

Happiness is...Sipping tea with a friend.

"Thou hast put gladness in my heart." - Psalm 4:7
