a tea party

A few weeks ago my mother threw a delightful English tea party - a perfect dreary afternoon with friends. We pulled out the china and had everything from scones to tea sandwiches to truffles. We went for a shabby-chic style, with mismatched plates and dishes...just over-the-top girliness. My favorite happened to be the biscotti ;)

I blow up my twitter feed  on Sundays with updates and thoughts about downton abbey - ugh. 

I won't regale  you here with my downton musings, but I do wish so badly that we could have tea like they do on a daily basis. sigh!
