Tea Tuesday

For months now I've been enjoying the Tea Tuesday posts on some of my favorite blogs. I wanted to join in myself so I asked Kimmie, our hostess, if she'd mind if I joined the tea party. Being the gracious host that she is...she agreed.

I decided since this was my very first Tea Tuesday that I should celebrate and bring out the good china. In fact, I have NEVER drank out of on of these cups until today.

As a kid, this set of dishes was brought out for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter...that's it. It was my Grandma's and last year was handed down to me from my folks. I've actually only ever eaten off the dinner plates...and that wasn't until I was a teenager that that privilege was allowed.
I must have been quite the clumsy child. :)

With my tea, I'm enjoying a special Norwegian treat called Krumkake. My mom bought it at a church Lutefisk supper over the weekend. I usually make some around Christmas so this is a real treat to have some now.

If you'd like to see my tea party companions hop on over to art in red wagons, Kimmies blog for the links.

It's really lovely to have you join in for tea Halle! BIG welcome to T Tuesdays!
So glad you pulled out the good china...you could treat yourself to it everyday now that you're all grown up ;)
At first glance your Krumkake reminded me of a smaller version of my Mom's German pancakes, but yours is a yummy cookie ooooo
Happy T to you...hope you join in again and again

Welcome to Tea Tuesday. Glad you joined in this week. Hope you will continue this each Tuesday because Kimmie is such a gracious host and all the tea gals will get to know you before long, too. And I haven't eaten all day, since I was off voting and running errands, so that krumkake looks really yummy. Again, welcome.

Thanks for commenting on my blog and I'm so happy that you have joined the Tea on Tuesday group. Doesn't it feel good to be using that beautiful china finally? That krumkake looks delicious. Maybe share a recipe later? Look forward to checking out more of your posts.
