Tea With Lemon


My bloggy friends loved this tea set from last week's tea party.
I thought I would post some close ups!


I have a beautiful teacup that accompanies the set! 


I love the delicate way the fruit and flowers sweep across the china.


Can you believe this gorgeous set came from Cracker Barrel?
I have purchased many treasures from that glorious place to dine and shop!


Today I will having tea with lemon!
I am a lover of all things lemon and this cake is simply delicious!
Thank you for sharing tea with me ~ I hope you enjoy the treat!

  5. My hubby and I love Cracker Barrel and I thought I had seen and drooled over all their lovely pieces, but I do not remember this lovely tea set. Perfect for summer with the soft delicate flowers. That lemon cake looks so good. Another perfect idea for summer with a glass of ice tea. Blessings.

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.
