Monday tea at Cozy Cottage



Hello and welcome to tea here at Cozy Cottage! I'm so glad you stopped by today to enjoy my delicious herbal teas....we have a choice of Cinnamon Apple, Honey Lemon, Mint Medley or Orange Spice, each one guaranteed to sooth your soul.

My special guest today is my mom and best friend, Verna. Mom is a retired nurse and lives in Oklahoma. Now that she is retired she seems to be busier than ever as a volunteer at the local museum, member of the PEO club, and being very involved with her church. She and her friend Jim are planning to do some traveling here in the U.S. in the near future.

Tea accompaniments include mouth-watering Asparagus Finger Sandwiches and Cucumber Finger Sandwiches, and for your sweet tooth I have prepared delicious Cream Scones with Currants.

Tea will be served in my lovely lavender Camark pottery tea pot with matching cups and saucers. Camark pottery is one of my favorite collections and if you would like to know more about collecting Camark pottery, here is an excellent reference: http://asms.k12.ar.us/armem/reynolds/index.htm.

While you are here today be sure to leave a comment so you will be registered to win my lovely roses tea cup and saucer set pictured below.


Thank you so much for stopping by today and having afternoon tea here in the parlor at Cozy Cottage!

Be sure to come back again tomorrow for my Tuesday tea party.

Hi Debbie, I am having my favorite tea right now. It's a very wintery flavor "Egg Nogg". I love it. Today is a beautifully grey day with a chill in the air. Just the way it should be here in New England. I hope you have lots of visitors! Enjoy your week.
