Lavender and Lace

If a kiss could be seen I think it would look like a violet. ~ LM Montgomery - Anne of Avonlea

Welcome friends to a Lavender and Lace tea. 

It is near the end of February and I thought I had better bring out my February teacup. This lovely Royal Albert Violets teacup was gifted to me by my hubby's aunt many years ago.

Do you think amethysts can be the souls of good violets? ~ LM Montgomery - Anne of Green Gables

This is one of only three Flowers of the Month series teacups that I have. Like most of you teacup lovers, I would dearly love to find teacups for all my family members' birthdays but here on the Island they are very hard to come by.

My teapot, Pretty Pansies, you have all seen before and it looks nice with my teacups. When I see a pansy, it always looks like it is smiling; sweet little posies!

These teacups are made by Gracie China.

The matching plate to the teapot is also Pretty Pansies.

These are my Valentine roses which I dried and look what a lovely colour they are! They almost match the purple in my china although the camera has changed the colour somewhat. They really are more of a lavender hue.

The sweet lacy bag which is filled with lavender is as fresh as the day I received it from Kathy at A Delightsome Life. 

Vintage lace and silver.

The cameo I wore on my wedding day. A bit tarnished but dear. That day it was worn on a velvet ribbon around my neck.

I have made Blueberry oatmeal muffins for our tea. These are very moist and healthy too.

Please help yourself to tea and a muffin. A warm blueberry muffin and fresh creamery butter.

 Stash organic Lavender-Tulsi herbal tea.

I made a double batch of muffins so there are plenty. If you would like the recipe I will share it tomorrow.

Thank you lovely friends for stopping by. It's a beautiful sunny day here on PEI and I hope it's lovely where you are. Enjoy your weekend and please join me on Monday for No Place Like Home. Click here to go directly to that post.
