I hope you had a fun St Patrick's Day on this Tea Time Thursday! It was a busy one for me...filled with LOTS of fun! Here it is, almost midnight and I am just now posting my blog post.
My first task of the day,was putting together this yummy tray of cookies for my lady's bible study group this morning. It was my turn to bring treats.
This is also Dolly Thursday on my Tasha Tudor group, so I wanted to share a wee bit of Irish charm
from dolly land.
This is Sean in all his fine tweed, sweater, mittens and hat! I'm not sure if he is Irish, but I think he looks like he could be from Ireland.
When I returned from bible study, I had Etsy orders to pack and get to the post office. They I put together some party favors for a St Pat's dinner and birthday party I was invited to tonight!
By the afternoon, I was ready for a spot of tea and a break! I needed a good strong cup of Irish tea. I wanted to use a teacup from my St Patrick's collection. With Easter so very early this year, I didn't even put my St Pat's things out...sigh. But I do adore this cup and saucer and just HAD to use it this afternoon.
This little 2 cup tea pot lives in my tea room all year, so it was quite handy for tea time.
Good Irish tea.....nice and strong!
A few cookies to celebrate the day...yummmy.
The cup is marked Queen Anne and is bone china from England.
I left my house at 3:30 pm to return my daughter's car that I had to borrow while mine was in the shoppe most of the week. Jim took me to pick up my car and I zoomed off to meet my high school buddies for the party at Molly's house. Thank you Molly for hosting the gathering. Kathy's birthday is in a few days, so we decided to celebrate while we were all together! Happy Birthday Kathy! We have been friends since 1964!
We had a great evening...talking and catching up! We had a great dinner, banana cake and some Irish coffee to end the night.
Yes, it was a VERY busy day but it was a fun day too. I think I'll call it a day.
