Cherries, Chocolate and Tea

Valentine's Day is just around the corner.
How do I love Valentine's Day?
Let me count the ways!!!!

Valentine Day Tea

It's time to pull out my Emma Bridgewater heart teapot
and heart shaped crochet hot-pads that I made last year.

The trio is from The English Table.
I love the flowers.
A bird on one side of the cup and
flowers on the other.

Valentine Day Tea

I'm going to fill my teacup with
Cherry Chocolate Tea
A Cuppa Romance Tea from The Republic of Tea.
Fine black tea blended with sweet blackberry leaves
natural cherry and chocolate flavoring.

Valentine Day Treats

Time for chocolate covered cherry fudge.
Delicious but oh, so rich. 
Heart shaped sugar cookies.

Valentine Day Tea

Don't like fudge?
How about chocolate cake?

Chocolate Cake

"Seven days without chocolate makes one weak."

I'm joining several parties today:

Sandi is having her Valentine Party at

Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea!

That was a lot of fun - I think I'll have a cup of the tea and a piece of that chocolate cake - it is my favorite - though the fudge looks awfully good - maybe a nibble here and there, just for fun - gobble gobble gobble :-)

You reminded me I have a pitcher with hearts on it, I really should get it out for v-day! Rebecca

That cake looks so good. I want to thank you for the information you just posted. I have been very sick, and now I know what my problem is. I was not eating enough chocolate. Rest easy, I will fix that today! Hugs, Martha
