I just love tea parties and finger sandwiches . . . so girly!

How cool to have a blog mainly about tea. Very creative! I'm a green tea person myself.

Here via the Ultimate Blog Party!

I always love a tea party. In fact, I'll be blogging about my last tea party later today.

UKZoe said...

Oooooh sandwiches with no crusts. Did you know that over here one of the main national bakeries has started selling a crustless loaf of bread. Don't know how they do that.

I am loving this blog party, and I've met so many new people! I really enjoyed reading your site. The doggie at the bottom is a cutie pie! I love my tea-for-one, and usually have at least a cup of tazo chai and a cup of green each day. It fits my 'be still' time. Come on by and visit my corner of the celebration if you get the chance!

If you can think of anything that might be helpful to me, please stop by my blog and leave me a comment.
Thanks!

Ladies,
I am so glad you've all stopped by! Wow, what fun! Guess I'll need to refill the trays and keep the kettle on. Really, thanks for all the sweet comments. I do hope you stay and look around and come back to visit.
Also, if you are leaving comments anonumously, that's ok, but be sure to put your blog address down so I can stop by your place.
Blessings to you all!
