Need I say that I have always had a slightly warped sense of humor? Small wonder I became a professional artist. We get away with anything!
Long past my gallery days, I still serve tea every Saturday afternoon, sometimes for guests, but always for the hubbster and me. Most days it's a simple spread, other times we go all out with various sandwiches and more than one sweet concoction like scones, puddings, cookies, and cheesecakes, almost always home-baked. Pavlovas, cream puffs, on occasion butter-cream torts. Lemon pies, shortbreads, brownies, well, the list is actually endless.
First we start with really good tea. I like to buy an assortment from Grace Rare Tea Company which carries my favorite, Winey Kemun, among many other fine imported teas.
I like a nice tea pot and this is my favorite in the collection because it has the perfect spout:
It's a gorgeous and large porcelain pot made by Crown Dorset in England.
I always set a nice table with linens and fresh flowers and, of course, good treats. Take a peek:
Well, you get the idea. After a long work week, it gives us a chance to do something a bit different from the usual meals - to sit down together for a relaxing chat, either just the two of us, or with neighbors who drop by to catch up with doings. It's festive, like a little party for no reason at all.
What about you? Do you do anything special on Saturdays? Here's a fun idea. Click on the T for Translate button top right column and read this post in a foreign language. Just because you can!
Remember what I said about that warped sense of humor. Zum voll! Would you like some sugar with that? Do sit down and have a spot of tea.
