Lavender and Lace for the End of February

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 would share all of my purple tea things. This lovely Royal Albert Violets teacup I shared with you last week along with its mate.

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

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. So far, I have birthday cups for a grandson and granddaughter; October and December.

I know some of my friends celebrated a birthday this month; Bernideen and Kitty; Happy Birthday!! I know there are many more February birthdays out there but I'm not sure who you are. I hope it was a month of blessing for all of you.

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 at me.

These teacups are made by Gracie China. Pretty little violets! 

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.

A sweet lacy bag filled with fragrant lavender. It has a satin ribbon handle which gives it the appearance of a wee purse. It was a Giveaway win years ago from Kathy at A Delightsome Life.

Vintage lace and silver. I adore vintage silver tea spoons! These little spoons I use often. I also love vintage lace. I think it adds a touch of yesteryear to a table; the time when ladies dressed in lovely apparel with hats and gloves. A genteel time when manners were still in style.

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

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

Please help yourself to some tea and a muffin. A warm blueberry muffin and fresh creamery butter. I had planned to make Jean's muffins but I didn't have any cornmeal on hand. Next time I will make her blueberry cornmeal muffins. If you would like to try my recipe you may click here

I made a double batch of muffins so there are plenty to enjoy. I especially enjoy a good muffin in the wintertime.

One last peek at my February VioletsGood-bye February!

Thank you lovely friends for stopping by. It's been a wonderful winter here on PEI. I can't remember a winter so mild with so little snow. I hope it's lovely where you are.
