PAINT MINE PINK'S TEA PARTY STARTS TODAY

TEA FOR TWO
Today is the start of Make Mine Pink Blog Tea party.
Welcome to my Tea for Two
I am making these cups of tea for Max and I in memory of my beloved Grandma.
Grandma and I would always use these pretty pink and blue trios (just love the roses inside the cup) when we would get together for a cuppa. They belonged to her.
She would make some yummy Ginger Kisses (a ginger sponge filled with a yummy cream) and we would sit and talk forever.
These pretty Rose cups/saucer/plates are a lovely reminder to me of long ago and a wonderful woman that I loved dearly.

Your tea for two is lovely. I always had tea with my grandmother also, and sipping tea with her was always such a comfort. Perhaps our grandmothers are in heaven having a cup today too. Nice to meet you, please stop by for tea at my place. Blessings, Karen
