Some wee little things in Grandma's Afternoons

Stop for Tea


I'm feeling a little overwhelmed this week,
perhaps some soothing tea would be nicely needed. 



but first I'll put on a hat,
Tea almost always goes better with a hat.


This is the one

I love the netting and when draped it is elegant


I'm having a fast cuppa this am as Ana is on her way over to stay with
grandma and we both are going to sit together and wait for baby.
Rory is finally going to make an appearance,
I can't wait to show you pictures of my new grand-son.

My tea party today is in this cup


I can imagine this rose flowering in my garden


I've chosen another rose for my tea pot


My tea today will be Lighthouse Lover's
wonderful rich bold, bright with a tart and tangy scur 
of cherry notes tempered with mild sweet banana finish.


While we are having tea and relaxing this afternoon I have something to share.
This is a video of the scrapbooking section of our gift shop done by Henry Dunsmore here on Prince Edward Island.  I was chosen by ArtisanPEI for the video this year and is demonstrates what we do for an experience here in the shop.  There were two videos made and I'll post the wire wrapping one another time. 
I hope you enjoy my camera shy :-)



These days I'm doing my best to try and stop for tea. Ana will be with me for two days as Rory my new grandson will arrive tomorrow.  We are so excited, and so is Ana, she hasn't stopped a bit. It took me all of the day up until now to get this post finished and I'm so tired I'm heading to my comfort zone. 

Before I do I'd like to visit the following for tea today.

Bernideen's ~ Tea Time Blog

I love your choice of pretty chapeaux Cindy. That would be fun to do. The teacup and teapot are beautiful. You must be thrilled to see Rory (love his name) tomorrow and I'm sure Ana will be pretty excited to meet her baby brother too. Blessings. Pam

Pretty teacupt and pot Cindy - Lighthouse Lover's tea - only in the maritimes!
The video was a good introduction to what you offer, I'll bet many people would like a memory page made of their holiday.

Cindy, your teacup is really pretty and I love the teapot too. What a unique name for a tea and I bet it's delish. Enjoy your time with little Ana and I look forward to seeing pictures of that new grandbaby too. Thank you for coming by for tea and take care.

Blessings,
Sandi

That cup and saucer are really awesome but it is that hat with the netting that really took the cake! Lovely posting and so glad you shared Cindy!

That tea cup is beautiful! And how exciting to welcome the new little one! Ana is probably even more excited today than yesterday!!!!

Hello Cindy, your "waiting for baby" post is lovely. I can imagine the pins and needles you are sitting on! I am wishing all the very best for your newest grandchild.
Hugs,

Oh - I stopped in to see your note-cards and was swept away with last week's teatime - which I missed - and just LOVED this post! So excited with your video - want to come and make a page, myself! Not in the near future, I'm sorry to say. Isn't it grand to be blogging buddies, though, sharing so much across the miles.
Joy!
