DREAMING OF ROSES for "Friends Sharing Tea"

Sitting by the window, one
can dream of springtime
tulips
and summertime roses.






Although it is not as cold as it was for
weeks - it is still winter and drab: those
little birds were standing and pecking
on the ice!



So we will just stay here and dream a bit!



Please sit here and pour yourself some tea:


I also made you some lovely
Raspberry Turnovers
(click for recipe)



I am excited to see how the bulbs
 do this spring as I planted
 more in the fall.



Today I am enjoying my 
American
Beauty Teacups: 



I have been busy this winter - just like you - 
enjoying my life and various interests.  I
have been sewing tea cozies this week,
keeping the bird feeders full and I always
enjoy cooking and baking. I did not
resist these flowers from the market and
love arranging them myself. 



I guess this is one of my all
time favorite teapots:



This post today gives tea bloggers
an opportunity to share a tea related
post from their blog - right down 
at the bottom below:



I also participate in these
other blog parties:

Bernideen, I love those little raspberry turnovers! And what a coincidence that I had decided to link to my apricot turnovers! They are a larger size as shown, but I've made them tiny for afternoon tea as well. On my favorite rectangular tray, Blue Danube. Thank you for hosting.

Oh great, thanks Bernideen-I'll be right over for that tart!! :) The flowers are beautiful! I noticed I have 2 crocus blooming out back, something I never saw before I fenced in back yard, rabbits would snip them off as soon as green blades poked out of the ground! My daffodils have poked thru the ground as well. I told them to go back down, but they're not listening!!
Your tea setting downstairs is quite lovely! And I know your garden will be too come this Spring! xoxo

Cut flowers bring so much warmth and color to any space. They look lovely by your window. Even though we have near freezing morning temperatures, the leaves on my rose bush and tree have appeared. Last week my daffodils bloomed. Much too early! Hoping the tulips will wait until Easter.
Thank you for hosting! I always enjoy reading the tea related posts.

The flowers are so pretty, Bernideen, and all your china so lovely. I love American Beauty and hope to find one some day. I don't have a post this week; not feeling well. Hopefully next week. Happy first of February!

I have never had a raspberry turnover.
After our snow today and this cold wind I’m ready for spring at your house to see what all came up.
I hope those plants you gave mecome back in the spring.
As usual you teapots are stars and you table set for a magazine shoot
