Tea and Cookies For One

It has been snowing most of the day, not real hard but it's supposed to continue on through the night until we get about 3" of snow... I have been hankering for Ginger Cookies and today was a good day to make them. So I did and now is a good time to have a cuppa tea and a cookie or four!! I am having Irish Breakfast Tea, love it, and I like it hot, strong and a little sweet. My kitchen smells so good and I always leave the oven door open when I'm done baking, to let the heat get out.....so the kitchen is nice and warm too!!  I love my Bumble Bee Teapot and cup & saucer. I bought them at a "used" store and what I wouldn't give for another cup and saucer!!  Then I could have Tea and Cookies for Two and it would be much more interesting...so if you ever see this pattern, be sure and let me know..

If anyone would like the recipe, just let me know and I can post it in a day or two.  Sew until next time, have a Stitches kind of day......time for another cuppa!!!!


  1. As soon as I saw your tea set I was going to ask you were you got it :) it is cute. I drink green tea and white tea and would love a new tea pot, I will have to look and see what I can find.

  2. Hello,

    Oh I am in love with your tea set. Just so cute.

  3. Mmm, good! I have a cookie jar that matches those dishes! It was purchased at Fern Hill in the Iowa City area. Perhaps they have some other items that you are looking for?! Stay warm today!
