Tea For Two? And A Surprise

It was a beautiful morning  to have
my cup of tea under the trees.

This morning I got to have it in style
with my new 
Tea Cozy
keeping the contents nice and hot.

Two and a half weeks ago
I entered a draw
for a beautiful 
Tea Cozy
that was offered
by my blogging friend Gayle

I won one of the 4 she was giving away!
Each one was different
and we could put our choice 
in our comment for the draw.

What a surprise when I opened the package
to find these wonderful additions!

A pretty packet of rose floral napkins.
Twining's English Breakfast Tea.
And a box of delicious 
Walkers (Pure Butter) Shortbread Triangles
from Scotland!

Thank you so much Gayle!

I have to admit that before I took these
photo's I had already gotten into the 
cookies so I had to be careful
not to show the open end 
of the box. :)


Olly wanted to join my tea party
so he did a little begging
and acted his goofy self.

He knew I'd give in.

Who wouldn't want to have Tea
under the trees!

He politely cleaned his paws
right up to his elbows!

Hurry up Mom.

Thanks again Gayle...
Olly and I enjoyed our treats.

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!

Maura :)

Just perfect.

I had to look real close to find out what a tea cozy was. I thought your teapot was painted like that. What a neat idea! Now if only Olly could have taken a photo of you enjoying your tea.

It's so fun to receive something pretty in the mail and not a bill! The Scottish crackers sound yummy. Looks like the kitty has quite the personality, great shots. Have a wonderful July 4 weekend!
