The Tea Party

We have had many tea parties with The Traveling Teapot
and many of our dear Friends.

But I also had a little tea party and it was just The Traveling Teapot and me.

"The Tea Party"

I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small-
Three guests in all-
Just I, myself and me.

Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.

~ Jessica Nelson North

Tea For Just Me
Niagara Ice Wine Tea and Ice Wine and Pistachio Macarons
from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada

The beautiful cup and saucer was a lovely gift from
Marilyn when she delivered
The Traveling Teapot to me.

Thank you, Marilyn.
I have fond memories of your visit here at
The Amherst Rose and
 enjoyed my little tea party for one with this
newest addition to my collection
The Traveling Teapot.
