Afternoon Tea
My copper kettle whistles merrily
and signals that it is time for tea.


The fine china cups 
are filled with the brew.


There's lemon and sugar
and sweet cream, too.


But, best of all there's friendship,
between you and me.


As we lovingly share our afternoon tea.

Hi Stephanie,
What a sweet tea setting. I love that foxy tea set! I've never seen anything like it before. We have foxes everywhere around here now. The last few years, we see them on sidewalks and in parking lots. We have one that goes through our back yard at least once a day. I think the coyotes have chased them out into the open. The foxes are getting very used to people and I don't know if it's a good thing or not. My son doesn't think so. {He is studying Wildlife Conservation Tech.} Folks are feeding them outside grocery stores too where they waith to be fed. I guess we'll see what becomes of them in the future.
Thank you for coming to tea and have a beautiful day, my friend. BTW, I still go to physio twice a week for my back but it's coming along. I'm hoping by Christmas I will be able to get back into a normal routine.

Blessings,
Sandi

Good Morning Stephanie, I love your new photo of you in the scarf and jean jacket that is so cute. I have a jean jacket I love it.
Your fox teapot is so unusual how cute is that. I just want to know what lemon stuff is on the muffin? that looks yummy!

Have a great week! Hugs

Lesa said...

Hey Stephanie! You look like a girl ready for fall in your new photo. Very pretty! Thank you for the invitation to your lovely tea. As everyone's noted, your fox family tea set is amazing! I'm enjoying a virtual "cuppa" with you. Take care and love and hugs!

Hi Stephanie, Your seat on the deck with the flowers looks like a wonderful spot for a cup of tea, especially in that beautiful cup! And your little fox tea set is adorable, too. I can't wait to get the details for my tea cup exchange so I can make a new friend! Linda

Vicky Hunt said...

What a sweet little tea set! I love it and it is perfect for fall. Those cookies look so tasty...are they lemon? I enjoyed having tea with you on my afternoon home from work. I just worked a half day as I am still so stuffy and not feeling well. Have a lovely Monday afternoon....:)

I saw your comment on Delvalina's blog and came over to visit you. I am now following you on bloglovin and friend follow. Your fox teapot is the most gorgeous teapot I have seen. He is so cute taking a nap on the lid.

Oh, I am falling in love with teacups and have a notion to start collecting them...perhaps a quick trip to Europe might be in order. Ha! Well, for now (and the next 10 years) I will admire yours. =) Thanks for sharing! Nancy

I enjoy eating outside in the coolness of day, and fall is the perfect time for tea outside. You have set yours up so lovely. The lace table cloth,flowers sitting around the table and the FOXY china is so pretty.

Good day my friend,

That tea set is so whimsical and charming. Foxes are one of my favorite animals, as long as we don't own a hen house:)

Beautiful tea setting, Stephanie!

Are those foxes? I have gone crazy over foxes and even bought myself a necklace today with 3 little foxes on it. I wish I could figure out how to make one! How sweet your table looks! Enjoy!
