Show & Tell Friday: Afternoon Tea

Show and Tell

My afternoon tea with home made chocolate cake


Inherited from nan, I love this cake skooper. I think it's so pretty and elegant and even for just one slice of cake I love using it. Takes me back to days gone by Ü


The box on the background with the cat I decorated myself using these -in my opinion- beautiful napkins. I love my tea and the box is home to quite a bit of my tea collection ^_^ I can't remember exactly how we got the teapot (how do you call it?) which contains the tea leaves - this time euchinacea tea. My favourite! <3


I LOVE this cup! I bought it last August in the National Trust shop and it makes me happy everytime I take look at it or take a sip of my tea. The colours, the birds, the flowers.. just stunning <3


Come around for tea next time and I'll save you a slice of cake and you can enjoy a nice cup of tea.
Thank you for visiting, Liesel
