Iris Tea Time

Hi everyone,
I'm on a tea time marathon. The Iris are blooming and the scones are baked. While on vacation I bought The Tuck Box scone mix. The scone mix is a Scottish recipe made with buttermilk. It's soft and cake like and so delicious. I served it with The Tuck Box Olallieberry Spread and whipped cream. To see 'The Tuck Box' post go here.
Archive-Lavender Royal Albert Tea Set is the perfect color to match my Iris blooms.
I've poured a cup of tea for you...

Please have a Scottish scone with the best tasting spread.
Cream and sugar for your tea. 
A vintage spreading knife from great-grandma...
The story of my wonderful vacation in March is almost over. I will be posting the hotel we stayed in on our last night before heading home and back to reality.
I found this wonderful vase at the Goodwill for $3.00 dollars. 

I do love my Iris♥
Hope you have a wonderful weekend
