Happiness



According to Emma Bridgewater
Happiness is a Bunny Rabbit
and I have to agree.


The Teddy Bear is all dressed up in his bunny costume ready for tea and scones.

Tea With A Bunny


The orange cranberry scone is from Trader Joe's.
TJs makes my favorite scone better than I do. 


Tea With a Bunny

The mug of the month for April is Emma Bridgewater's 
Happiness is a Bunny Rabbit.
This is a child size mug that I fell in love with.
The mug and scone are on a bunny plate I found at Pier One several years ago. 
The tea is TAZO Awake -- I'm running slowly today and needed an extra wake up call!


A French Tea Garden

This is Tea Garden by Frederick Childe Hassam (October 17, 1859 - August 27, 1935.
He was a prolific American Impressionist painter, noted for his urban and coastal scenes.
He produced over 3,000 paintings, watercolors, etchings, and lithographs over the course of his career, and was in influential American artist of the early 20th century.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

A big thank you to our tea party hosts:

I can't "bear" how much I love the sweet faces of stuffed animals like this one! Then to add the bunny outfit, so cute. I love, love, love this painting- how I'd enjoy tea and a scone in a garden like this.
