Tea Party Tuesday ~ Memories with my sister, Paula

My sister, Paula came to visit on Thursday and 
stayed for the weekend.  

I took her to my FAVORITE Tea Room
called, The Mad Hatter Tea Room.

For a look at the tea room, visit their site by clicking Here!

Here are some memories for 
Tea Party Tuesday this week.

It was a lovely spread!

They serve so many wonderful treats for their
4 course tea service, but my favorite is their
pecan chicken salad! YUM 
The salad is made with pecans, chicken, craisins, green pepper
and a "secret spice".  Very Tasty Indeed!

Another fun twist was that I had recently made 
some fun cupcakes for my neighbors son's birthday and
she surprised me with a gift certificate to the Mad Hatter!

This lovely cup was just calling my name, so I
obliged and snatched it up!

I love you Paula!!

 The recipe I share with you this week is 
one of making memories:

Take a spoonful of time,
mix it with a dash of compassion and love.
Snuggle for 10 minutes and life will taste
pretty darn good if you ask me!

Awl Trisha,

There really is nothing like a sister's visit to a tea room to be the most perfect day spent ever, huh?

I am so glad you enjoyed one another.

It's always great to take some time with family! That's one of the best recipes I've seen!

Sounds like a super fun outing with your sister. Wonderful memories for you both. I also have that same style coffee cup with tassel, but mine has a pink rose decal on it. Mine came in a oblong box that folded out sort of like origami. I loved the box more than the cup, it was so beautiful. The box was decorated in pink toned vintage paper. It's so pretty I should post about it. Thanks for sharing your wonderful outing with us all.


It must be so wonderful to have a sister and to have a loving relashinship like you both do. Lovely! Thank you dear Trisha for hosting and sorry but my post's thumbnail didn't want to link to the party, I don't get why...but onlu my header. Hugs,
