My, it would be hard to get out of bed with all that loveliness surrounding you. Pretty china, yellow roses, tea, chocolate biscuits and a good book. What more could one ask for, except of course Mr. Connery.

Those cookies look delicious, BJ! Everything looks so pretty! I have to tell you that I love the picture of you and your hubby. We just celebrated 25 years and we'll be getting our picture done, too.

Beth said...

BJ, Your images are so beautiful! The teacup, the roses, the lace, the bed linens, the grapes, the sugar cubes - it all looks fabulously put together! The chocolate wafers are pretty and I'll bet they're tasty as well. Nice post, BJ!

Katie@LeBeauPaonVictorien said...

How utterly beautiful! I love the teacup's pretty roses that match perfectly with your pretty pillows!
Petit Ecolier cookies are my FAVORITE in the whole world (next to Biscoff!). And Charlotte's Web was always one of my favorite books. I would have really enjoyed having your tea at my house, complete with book and cookies and pretty things!

Lady Katherine said...

Oh,BJ I am in love! Your Morning Tea is so lovely! The tray with your lovely tea scarf! I love them both! How wonderful your Tea Cup is you won, and it goes beautifully with your pillows and your coverlet! The fresh rose! Adore the footed Tea Cup! Oh to be invited into your bedroom for Tea, is a Dream of Sean Connery, I know in the Dream we can feed him some of the grapes! I think I save my chocolate wafer for me, lol I have never had those! They look so wonderful, placed on the clear desert dish with the white doily! Oh, Pomegranate Tea sounds just lovely! Such a beautiful Morning in bed! I adore Charlotte Web's! Wish I was lucky enough to find it! I have had two weeks of stressful posting! Oh, in the draft everything is perfect, but when I publish it changes my font, and creates page size spaces. I worked all day today trying to get the post as good as it looks, I finally just had to post as it was after 8:00! I have to find out what going on! I was to spend the day in the garden playing dishes and setting up practice runs of some Teas! Instead I been on the computer, stress! lol So to come to Tea here was wonderful! I featured one of your Teas this week. Now, can I pop into your bed and rest? Thank you for joining me again for Tea Time Tuesday with Lady Katherine! I love how you linked it! Since there is two Tea Time Tuesdays. I think I may change mine now, for I loved your link! First got to find out what happening on my draft! lol

Beansieleigh said...

Tea looks wonderful today BJ! I sure HOPE there's a cookie left for me! I could sure use one! I am not having a good week! I tried to make it for Shelia's party, and my camera would not work!.. Then apparently I posted too late for Celio's Victorian Tea Party, and my photo was never shown, and I haven't heard from her.. Both events, my own fault, but so disappointed I'm missing all the fun! At least I made it for Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi! I'm glad for that!... Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! ((hugs)) ~tina

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Is there room for me? I adore Charlottes Web. What a clever and creative tablescape. Well done!

Betty said...

Everything looks so pretty! Have a great week BJ!

Could you share your dumpling recipe with me?? I am trying to make some like Mom's, I haven't got it right but I am determined. I finally got her ribbles right.

nannykim said...

BJ, I am not sure you are behaving...not sure at all!!! But you can't be too bad perhaps if you are drinking tea and reading Charlotte's Web!! Blessings to you my dear. I can't remember if you have come to my tea or not---I have a very poor memory and tea does not seem to help it. My tea as at my monkey business blog ;-0)
