low temps in the high 50s and highs in the low 70s.
I just have to get through the storms today.
The light wasn't good for picture taking, but I did it anyway.
Most of my decorating for Halloween is done --
I picked up this little kitty and his mouse friend
at an after Halloween sale last year.
I giggle everytime I see him.
He likes to have tea!
Lenox has made a whole set of dishes called Butterfly Meadow.
This is the fritillary butterfly cup and saucer.
I love the little lady bug on the saucer.
Pretty wavy rims on the teacup and the saucer.
Lovely detail on the cup.
It must be Autumn if the Pumpkin Spice Bagels are on the grocery shelves! I'm going to make a nice cup of green tea. I don't want my tea to compete with the taste of the bagel. And then I'm going to settle down to read Autumn by Susan Branch.
I told the young lady I wasn't much interested in the wine,
but wanted to check out her teas.
She had made Tai Ping Green for tea tasting and offered me a cup.
Cute little cups.
Tai Ping Green is a pressed green tea.
It was a tad on the bitter side and I wondered if perhaps she had steeped it too long.
She had some pretty tea tins.
They have a small menu that looked tasty.
What really caught my eye was this wonderful cozy... straight from Russia.
They have regularly scheduled wine tastings and some special wine events. I read some of the reviews on Rosinka and we all seem to say the same things ... small, cozy, looks like something you'd find in Europe. I may go back one day and try something off the menu, take a book, settle in and people watch! I'm joining the lovely Judith for Mosaic Monday and some tea parties:
