Jen's Jelly Bean Bark
Jen at  http://www.scissorsandspatulas.com/ has a wonderful blog and is very creative!  She was kind enough to allow me to use her recipe.  I thought it would delight the girls, however, didn't really expect it to taste all that good.  Instead of regular jelly beans I used SweetTart Jelly beans ...
this stuff was double D-licious!!!  
Jen currently is doing an incredible "Give-away" worth $50.  Check it out!
Thank you, Jen!!!!

Maybe Raspberry Tea was not such a good choice for these little ones!! 
Tutu Cute!!

These gorgeous Easter egg shaped sugars are from
"Home Sweet Home"out of Canada. 
I use to carry their line in my tea room/cafe`/gift shop. 
Their products are a bit pricey but oh sooo exquisite! 
I'll do a post on their product another time.

Alli and Grandma Kathy... so sweet!

Tea time is a celebration of family and friends.  It's a time to slow down and  focus on what's important... or rather, who's important!  Relationships are really the only thing that matter at the end of the day.  So, whether it's a formal tea or just sharing a "cuppa" with a friend or child,  do find time this week to ... put on the tea kettle, pull out your prettiest china tea cups, turn off your phones and just enjoy!

Blessings, Linda
