Hearts, Roses, and Tea

Welcome Readers!  Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day Tea.  Lots of photos, so please pull up a chair to my tea table and enjoy!

My tablecloth today is this cute heart quilt made by a friend's daughter.  You can see another of her quilts here.  Below are some more photos of the quilt:

Someone else wants a closer look.

I love the patterns and colors and shapes:

I am using some sweet hankies as napkins:

This is the pretty tea set I bought at a thrift store a short while ago. The bottom says Noritake Nippon Toki KaishaI tried to resist, but now I'm glad I gave in...

I'm so sorry!  I haven't offered you any refreshment yet!  I think I'll use my mother's pretty heart-shaped dish made by Mikasa.  Help yourself to a napkin first:

I think this ring holder makes a cute little candy dish:

I hope you've enjoyed this Valentine's Day Tea!  There is still some left, so feel free to stay awhile and sip another cup!  The golden elixir below is Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Vanilla Herbal Tea (I drink it any time of the day).

Since I'm celebrating Valentine's Day, I feel like singing a little love song:

All to Jesus I surrender;
All to Him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.

I surrender all,
I surrender all;
All to Thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.
