For today's tea, I have some things I'd like to share with you. Let's sit and have a slice of Pistachio Layered Dessert that I have leftover from St. Patrick's Day and a cup of tea. The gorgeous pink roses were found at a local grocery store, as a rainy day special, for $2.00!!!
This Spring Cross Stitch is a Lizzie Kate design that I recently finished. I did it on linen and changed some of the colors up a bit to suit my tastes. I'm doing all four seasons and will just change them out in the same frame.
My Petit Point teacup is by Royal Albert, and found on Ebay. When I opened up the box, one of my granddaughters was here and she said, "Oh Nana. it looks like cross stitch!"
I turned over my sweater pillow that I had made for Valentine's Day, and used buttons to make a bunny. My inspiration was from a catalog from Pier 1, which I've shown below. I just laid my buttons around until I liked the shape and then I hot glued them on. You can see my heart button pillow here.
Here's my inspiration for my bunny pillow.
Recently my friend Sandi, from Rose Chintz Cottage, made a pistachio dessert and I was inspired to make one again for St. Patrick's Day. You can find my recipe that I shared last Spring, which can be found here. This time, instead of using Oreos in the crust, I used a sleeve of Lorna Doone cookies, along with the melted butter. They're both good! You can also check out Sandi's Pistachio Delight dessert here.
