Join me for tea?

Wandering into the backyard, I found a lovely table set for afternoon tea...

... delicious cakes on beautiful plates...

... a pot of tea...

... delicate old tea cups waiting to be filled, Madeleines and scones beckoning...

... a charming magazine, a cup of tea steeping, a couple delicious sweets...

Such beauty could only be in honor of A Fanciful Twist's annual Mad Tea Party. Care to join me for tea this afternoon? I'll save you a savory or two...

Many thanks to the lovely and talented Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist for hosting such a divine party. Be sure to visit her blog for a complete list of participants.
