Today's tea was made possible because of culinary help from two of my three grandsons. I love having a shamrock plant for St. Patrick's Day. The milk glass shamrock candle holder was my Mom's and she gifted two of them to me. We are going to be sipping some Emerald Spice tea to go with our cookies.
I'll share my dream Ireland vacation journal with you, that my late Beloved and I took back in 2009.
This gorgeous platter was this past Christmas gift from my youngest son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter. The back of the plate has a personal inscription that they requested. It is beautiful!
This is my only Belleek teacup that I own. I love the shell shape of the cup and around the saucer, and the harp handle.
Look at these cute bakers, taking turns at the mixer!
They were so good at taking turns at the cookie press and sprinkling the sugars. It's very important to use COLD cookie sheets when using a cookie press. Even sticking your cookie sheets in the freezer before using will help.
After our baking, we went to lunch, and then to the National Videogame Museum.
A dear blogging friend sent me this beautiful towel of Ireland. It won't be used for drying dishes, because it's too pretty. It will be used for a decoration on the handle of my oven. Thank you ever so much, Barbara! She also sent me some Emerald Spice tea and some shamrock sugar cubes (too cute!).
Thank you for your visit! xo
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
