Steeped Tea. I have included the orange one for October in my 2018 Nice Cuppa Tea Calendar. I love them.
On my visit to Fabric Frenzy this year I purchased some wide lace with these Tea Pocket Coasters in mind. The are the creation of Stephanie at Enchanting Rose. You can find the pattern in this post on her blog.
I found a few really nice embroidered pieces at the second hand store recently. This one fits well on my small table on the balcony.
I found this pink Asian Lily at the community garden the other day.
After seeing my sister with fresh flowers on her table I am inclined to grow a pot of mixed cutting flowers next year so I can have some on my table too.
Last week my sister hit the second hand stores and I found these. Turquoise is certainly one of my summer colors. A plate, bowl and glass were included. I have added the set of cutlery I used at work. Now that I am retired, they can be pressed into service in a different way.
I recently bought myself a Contigo Water Bottle. I am sure the quality of the bottle will be excellent. It is 24 oz which is perfect for me. A little heavy to carry full of water but it really meant for the car.
I have had their Stainless Steel Travel Mug for quote a while with no spills. We had a lot of them at the family event and had to manage which one belonged to who.
Tea with Raspberry Bavarian. This is a recipe my Mom made often when I was a home. She had a large raspberry patch so this time of year this dessert was on the menu. Served in a small fluted glass dish with a chocolate wafer and set with silver teaspoon.
A frosted vase filled with roses.
I selected my pink Sadler teapot with Roses and Forget Me Nots which is 1937-47 vintage. The Colcough pink tea cup I found to go with it has pink roses and periwinkle blue Corn Flowers filled with Raspberry Tea.
1.25 cup of raspberries
.25 cup of sugar
Cook these till berries break down.
1 envelope of gelatin softened in .25 cup of cold water. Set bowl over hot water to liquify.
Add to the raspberries and cool in the fridge to set gelatin. This will not be a very firm consistency.
2 egg whites beaten - add .25 c. of sugar
.75 c of cream beaten - add .25 c. of sugar
Mix egg whites and cream together. Then fold into the raspberries and refrigerate to set.
