"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Tea Party At Roseann's...

My dear friend Roseann invited me to a special Valentine's Tea Party today. Roseann made all of these delectable little sweets, scones and savories for us. She is a fantastic cook and baker. (She really needs a blog of her own!)

It was Ro, Stephanie, Sylvia and I. Another friend, April, couldn't make it. We are a close-knit little group of friends. I love them dearly. You've seen 'Sex and the City?' Well, that's not us. We're more like, "Kids and the Suburbs." Yeah, that's us. Over the years, we've all been there for each other through joys and sorrows, silly and serious, laughter and tears. I can't even begin to express how much they mean to me.

You can click on this photo to enlarge her lovely menu.

Syl brought a jasmine tea flower. It 'blooms' in the boiling water. Pretty and brews delicious tea. .

Stephanie brought a CD of Jane Austen's favorite music that was recorded in Jane Austen's home! She always finds cool stuff like that.

I know, I'm so lucky. And yes, it was as delicious as it looks! She even sent us home with beautiful Valentine boxes of goodies. Thanks, Ro. I love you with all of my heart. xo xo Cat ^..^

Wish I had a friend like Roseann. What delicious treats, they've made me want my tea already. Long may the kids from the suburbs keep meeting like that.
