Tea Time Tuesday

Welcome to my Tuesday Tea Time, although it was the Thursday evening. I was having a
jewellery demo at my house, and saw Sandi's strawberry shortcakes in the jar, thought of doing
that, but don't have any small jars or sealers (we don't take them at the auction anymore), I was
going to have to go out and buy the jars, which didn't make sense so had some small white bowls
that I used. They are great for women in the evening, they don't like to eat big. Here is a picture
of the strawberry shortcakes.

they were a big hit and only one left over for hubby, also had strawberries with the white
chocolate and mascarpone,

and my usual cupcakes, tried to do roses on them, but it was so hot that day, that I ran out of

A couple of weeks ago we sold a cloche like this one and for some reason I wasn't thinking
didn't buy it, then I get this one off amazon-duh go figure, cheaper at the auction.
 It is wonderful
goes right over the three tier serving plates.

It was so hot that I serverd ice tea, in these pretty pink stemmed glasses, the tea was in a large decanter with a spout, and the ice goes in the bottom, due to the heat had ice in the top and
lemons. Everyone enjoyed it, was to busy serving to get a picture.

the glasses above are on a pretty new tray that I got at Bowrings, along with a two plate
 plates and a teapot. I will show them at a later date.

That night after everyone went home and it had cooled down, we had our nightly tea, this
is my everyday teapot that we do use every evening and the Beatrix pottery china teacups
that I thought I mentioned last week, (but didn't)   
NO TREATS at all --it was a day of icing, cake mixes, strawberries, whipped cream, angel
cake, white chocolate, mascarpone,  (not to mention that I had made mini banana loaves
 honey butter) all this adds up to five pounds...
I thought I had written about these china mugs, their are four of them, each one represents
the seasons, I have had them for over 25 years and they are one of my favorites, they are
 different colours, are made by Royal Doulton, Brambly Hedge-summer, winter, fall, spring.
 My sister-in-law gave me the four and I bought the same for her, also have a cup and
