Angel Tea Time

Hello, my dear friends 
Welcome to My Cozy Corner. February is my favorite month and 
 on February 14th. 1960 my sweetheart and I were engaged. 
We have a LOVE STORY and you can read it  HERE
I'm such a romantic and angels remind me of TRUE LOVE. 
Please join me for a cup of tea and a delicious cookie on a rainy February day.
A dear friend gave me this beautiful set of Fostoria 'American' salad and dessert dishes. I knew the instant she handed me the dishes what kind of tablescape  I was going design. My lace tablecloth and pink transferware was part of my vision. 
A little cherub vase and my 'Perfection' Camellias make the most romantic statement.
The delicious Almond Crescent cookies are on an American salad plate.
While at the thrift store I found two cherub napkin rings to complete my tea table.
My Ironstone tea pot is also a delightful addition to tea time.
Adding my grandmother's silver tea spoons. The little spoons traveled to America 100 years ago (1914) on a ship from England.
I ran outside to pick the camellias in the rain. Hopefully you will see a rain drop or two on the flower petals. 
~Angels or Cherubs~
Sweet and Romantic
