Under certain circumstances there are few hours in life more agreeable
than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.

In the most recent Tea Cup/Mug Exchange hosted by
Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose,
I received some yummy goodness from Debbie Harris,
who just happens to be the mother of our delightful Stephanie!
These lovely gifts came in a beautiful matching box (pictured below).
I adore this cup and saucer with sweet roses, trimmed in a delicate gold.
The saucer has a little scallop to the edge that makes it ripple with beauty!
Can I just say that I ♥♥♥ Raspberry Jam?!
Oh yeah. My favorite.
I made an English Muffin to go with my tea but before I made it out the door
for the photo shoot I just had to taste it with the jam...
see...no picture with the muffin because it was THAT good!
This Vail Breakfast Tea is excellent with a tiny bit of sugar and cream!
I am going to be on the lookout for some loose leaf tea
so I can use this adorable heart shaped tea infuser.
Isn't it cute?!
Also included was a jam spoon, recipe card with a recipe for the
Best Ever Biscuits, a flower shaped cookie cutter and a booklet on Tea!
I haven't made the biscuits yet but I plan on trying
them when I can stay on my feet longer.
And the cookie cutter is going to make the cutest sugar cookies!
The picture doesn't do this tea cup justice!
I ♥ it!!!
Thank you, Debbie, for my lovely gift! It is perfect for me :)
And thank you, Stephanie, for putting all of this together.
You are a blessing and a sweetheart!
