Tea Time Tuesday

Hello dear friends and welcome to another Tea Time Tuesday. Can you believe this is my 70th tea party?

I want to wish all my American friends a Happy Memorial Day weekend! I hope it's been a safe and happy one for you.

Whew! What a week it has been with Blogger! I'm sorry that some of you didn't get a comment from me on your tea post last week but I want you to know that I did visit each one of you. Your posts are always a delight and I want to thank you for making Tea Time such an enjoyable pasttime.

Now, it's a whole different problem with Blogger! I can't log into my blog these days. The only way I was able to do this post was by going through another's blog to get to mine. I have no idea how that works, I'm just so thankful that it does! I must really meditate on Philippians 4:8 these days.

So, because I am having problems with Blogger and it took me hours to do this post, this tea post is going to be short and sweet!

I had made a cake for the Pink Saturday Birthday Party that took place over the weekend and I am sharing it with you today. It is a single layer pound cake with pink icing, spray roses and baby's breath. I think it looks pretty on the Rose Chintz plate.

The spray roses were so tiny and delicate when I got them and now they are full-blown fluffy roses. My tea today will include them. Hope you enjoy!

The tea cup I am using is one you have seen before. I thought it looked nice with my roses.

It is Pierced Lace made by Skye McGhie. The creamy colour of this set with the lacey edged saucer makes it a very romantic tea cup. There is a slight scallop around the rim of the cup and the pedestal base. The cup itself is adorned with fleur de lis.

Did you know you can make tea from rose petals? Brew 2 cups of black tea and mix with 1- 1/2 cups dried rose petals {unsprayed}, 3/4 cup lemon verbena leaves, and 2 tablespoons dried lemon peel. Strain. Keep out of bright sunlight as the light affects the taste of the tea.

I am delighted you have stopped by today and I would love for you to join me for Tea Time Tuesday! All you have to do is share a favourite tea cup or teapot, a coffee mug, or something tea related. If you wish, you may do coffee, iced tea, lemonade, hot chocolate, apple cider, or punch instead of tea. The TTT button on my sidebar is available for you to use in your post or place on your sidebar if you wish. A poem, tea quote, or scripture verse would be more than welcome! Please link back to me so that your visitors may find their way here to visit with all my lovely participants.

FYI: I will be hosting a tea party as usual every week but on June 13, I will be hosting a Father's Day Tea and on June 20, I will be hosting a Summer Dreams Tea. 
Also Kathy @ A Delightsome Life - is hosting her seasonal party, Savoring Summer on June 21. You can find her button on my sidebar. I hope you will make plans to participate in one or all of these parties.

I am pleased to join the following parties today as well~
