While at the grocery store, I bought some autumn sugar cookies.
I thought this would be the last time I could enjoy autumn before winter became a priority. I also have my Christmas plates and cups out. I use them between Thanksgiving and Christmas. They were originally my grandmother's and I carry on the tradition of using them at the same time she always did.
Even though I've shown the entire set before, I did so with my old camera that took photos you couldn't really see. This is the saucer. It's hard to see the small indentation the cup sits in, but it's there. The set is called "Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe."
The cup holds my yellow tea, a rather rare tea I purchased at the Spice Merchant. It is a loose leaf tea called Spring Bud, and I bought an 1/8th ounce. They don't always have it, so I was happy I got to try it. You definitely don't need sugar with this tea, because it is smooth, rich, and very sweet.
The cookies were very sweet, too. I should say the icing was very sweet. The cookies were rich with butter. I can't believe I bought a dozen. And to think I'm trying to watch my weight during this silly season!
Now that I've tempted you with my tea and cookies, it's your turn to share your tempting drink inspired post by linking below. It can be anything drink related, including digital, hybrid, or traditional scrapbooking, altered art, collage, mixed media, sketches, or journaling. It can be a postcard, book, movie, or photos of drinks or drink vessels. When you link, Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit.
