You'll Have Had Your Tea

A little pause for tea before tackling more RL and miniature DIY!  

A delicious tart and freshly baked loaf (from Elizabeth) with oatcakes and a choice of honey or rose petal jam... served on my new tea set from Falcon that I painted with porcelain paints with an Avon jug of summer flowers..;




  1. Mmmmmm, what a Splendid Tea!!! That was delicious! Thank you for sharing! LOL! I am so impressed with your painted tea set!!! And of course, Elizabeth sends the best food! I can't wait to see what else you are making! :)

  2. What is better than a cup of hot tea. Very nice dishes and excellent cakes. Thank you!

  3. I love your use of the time honoured Edinburgh greeting! What a lovely little setting and a really nice tea set. I hadn't heard of Falcon before - must keep an eye out. Each item looks so tempting and I'm glad you decided to do a kitchen too!

  4. it looks delishious :)


  5. Thank you Jonquil for the invitation to Tea, which always tastes better when served in such delicate china!
    I too, have this Falcon china in remembrance of my mother-in-law who would always serve her tea in her VALDOR china teacups ( solid white fluted china with gold edging) just like the Falcon set. I never would have thought what an amazing change could be wrought by painting it as you have so Beautifully done! I LOVE IT!
    I am glad that you are able to use the baked goods. I didn't recognize them until you mentioned them and then I took a closer look.
    They look right at home!:D


  6. Hello jonquil,
    What a lovely setting! I would love to come for tea. You did a great job on the tea set and Elizabeth's baked goods look scrumptious!
    Big hug

  7. Can smell it and taste it. Lovely the Edinburgh greeting - always have - but was never sure if they were inviting or discouraging! Clearly yours in an invite. Can I have some cheese with my oatcakes please. Marilyn

  8. Gorgeous scene! I love your tea set, you did a lovely job.
