I'm still celebrating my May birthday!
One of my sisters-by-choice sent me this tea set.

Tea Set

I really like the mesh strainer.

The decoration is different on the front and back of the tea pot and cups.

I like the green leaves.

I used to bake a lot ... by scratch.
Not any more.
I've gotten very lazy!

I was cleaning out the pantry and found a package of Sticky Fingers 
Carrot Spice Scones.
Just toss the mix into a bowl, add water, mix, bake.


They look good and are tasty!

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

What a pretty tea set. I was a tea drinker when I was younger, but became a coffee drinker in my 30's.

Hello, the tea and scones sound delicious. I like your new tea set. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

The easier the better works for me. I love your new tea pot and strainer.

I love all tea pots and your Asian set is very pretty. Easy scones (never made a scone, is that like biscuit?) sounds tasty too.

Mmmm...those scones look and sound so tasty! I used to bake from scratch....back when we had kids at home and even occasionally when the grandkids were smallish overnight visitors. . now for just two of us it is just too much effort, the most I can ever seem to manage is an occasional pan of cornbread ... The tea set is really nice and you really do get the most out of a birthday ;)))!

A very sweet tea set - and the scones do look yummy.

Hi, Snap! I like your green leaves, too! :-)
I also ADORE Sticky Fingers Scones, but I have never tried the carrot variety. I am putting that on my must-do list straight away! Thank you for sharing!

Tea and scones sound wonderful! Such a pretty tea set! x Karen

Such a pretty set, Snap! I like when an infuser/strainer fits into one of my teapots because I always use loose tea, and it's just so much tidier that way. I drink tea all day long!

Your sister by choice knows you so well, and gifted you with such a pretty tea set! The carrot scones do look yummy, Snap! We all need easy, especially in the summer.

What a wonderful teaset...I would say your sister knows you well! I don't bake as much nowadays either. Sticky Fingers is a good mix though, isn't it? Or some of Pamela's . Sometimes Lazy is good! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea

I never met a scone I didn't like, and the easier the better! I am drinking more tea these days, so I love your tea set. I find I can't drink wine every night (sigh) for the calories!!!

Great teapot! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home.

Hi Snap, the tea set is very unique with two designs. I buy similar scone mixes at Home Goods like that now and then and they are tasty! Nothing wrong with being lazy. :) Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Snap, what a pretty tea set! I have used the scone mix and I think they are very good!


What a gorgeous teaset my friend! Give me tea with scones any day in this loveliness!
