Please join Cissy and I for a Valentine Day tea, won't you?
Just look at these beautiful cupcakes that my darling granddaughter made!!! Aren't you impressed?? She used our Russian piping tips, and she did a great job, don't you think? She had lots of pretty cupcakes to take home to her family, but I saved a few, because I can't resist desserts!
This beautiful tea cozy comes from my friend, Bernideen's Etsy Shop. You can find information on them at Bernideen's blog. She has so many pretty styles to choose from. Bernideen's Etsy Shop is on her sidebar.
I thought my Johnson Brother's Rose Chintz or my Royal Albert Petit Point teacups would be perfect for our tea.
Here's another close-up of these gorgeous cupcakes! My son who lives here with me, said, "they're too pretty to eat!" However, that didn't stop us from eating one!
The week before, Cissy made some Valentine Bark, inspired from Mary at Home Is Where The Boat Is. You can find Mary's directions for this here. Last year, we made her Bunny Bark, and we just loved it! This bark is so tasty because it has a base of graham crackers, which gives the bark a nice crunch. I'll never make the all chocolate bark again after trying this version.
I also made this book for my sister when I was in Ohio with my mom. I was inspired by Lauren at Wonderfully Made. This was a fun project. You can check out Lauren's directions for the folded book art, by going here. She also has a double folded heart, too.
Last, but not least, I'm sharing a picture of my late beloved and I when we were high school sweethearts! I miss my Valentine!
Thank you for your visit! xo
