I was the lucky winner of these tea bags at Stepp Into My World. Treasia sells these. I can’t wait to try them. Thank you Treasia.

There are so many fun events today, and I’m joining several of them:

Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life (thank you Marty),

Tea Time Tuesday at Lady Katherines Tea Parlor (thank you Katherine), and

Tea Party Tuesday at Rose Colored Glasses (thank you Rhondi).

Be sure to go visit all of these lovely ladies’ blogs for links.

I’ve hesitated to put a Facebook “Fan” box on my blog, because I don’t think there is such a thing as a “fan” of this blog.  I decided that it was a good way to stay connected to some of my blogging friends, so I have finally added one to my sidebar.  

Thank you for coming to have a spot of tea with me today. laurie

Oh,Laurie, Thank you for joining me today! I am so happy to see you here! I just love the tea setting. The St Patrick's Day cloth and napkins, adore the napkin rings! Love the Tea pot and cups. Let me know how you like your new teas! I love my tea strong so I add a few more teaspoons to my pot. If you are using bags, if you like it strong, use less water. I love the sugar bowl, such awesome!

I love green so you can post green all year if you want and I would enjoy it. Pretty St. Patty's Day tea party. Love the cups and tea pot and the glass candle holder....Christine

Love your photos, too. I'm jealous of the great shots you take.

fondly,

Lovely St Pat's tea, Laurie.

I don't know how to add a facebook fan thingy to my sidebar. I thought about having a party but can't even figure out the linky thing...I'd probably mess up the facebook fan thing.

What a pretty table - it is happy looking! :) Congratulations on winning the tea. I am not a big tea drinker, but the lemon tea sounds good.

Rhondi said...

Hi Laurie
I'll have the blackberry tea please. Your table looks so pretty all in green. I love the teapot. It looks vintage. Thanks for joining the tea party today.
Hugs, Rhondi

Laurie, this is just gorgeous. I love your linens. Your teapot is beautiful and the lovely compote holding the teabags is so pretty too, however your cups with the gorgeous green handles just really caught my eye. Now I would love some honey tea in one of those beautiful teacups and then I'd really enjoy a beautiful cupcake too. So pretty and inviting. Hugs, Marty

Laurie, this is beautiful. I love your shamrock tablecloth, and those cupcakes wouldn't last two seconds at our house.

So many lovely parties...so little time. I hope to join in soon :0)
Love your Irish themed table. I was looking around here at the homestead yesterday quite sad that I am lacking any goodies for St. Patrick's day. I'll have to remedy that soon but I have to wait until the stuff gets clearanced! So this year it will be Corned beef and cabbage with a fancy green colored drink...

Be a sweetie,

Lauri, I'm sure you will have lots of fb fans very soon!
I love all the green you show us for St Pats! :-)
I'll try the huckleberry tea please! I love the real berries, so i'm sure I'll love the tea too.
Your teapot is beautiful and looks like it could be on the pages of a Mary Engelbreit magazine.
Have a wonderful day!
PS_ Stop by my blog sometime this week, if you have time. I have a giveaway going on.

Your table sham rocks! :)
Lovely tea, my dear!
I had an Irish great aunt who used to read the leaves for us..I think it was just to keep us quiet for a few minutes!

Pat transplanted to MN said...

Love this one especially on the tea. I have been trying lately to use the loose tea leaves, but the bags are so doggone handy and they do brew a great pot of tea! This reminds me it is time to get out my annual St. Patty's green tablecloth.....I stop here from time to time and enjoy your blog...

ginny said...

I love all the Irish things. You by far, have the most china and accessories that anyone I have been following, Where in the world do you find all this "stuff"? And where do you store it??
