Tea With Jane Austen

Well, although Mrs. Wilt has been delayed in having tea with Miss Austen, I thought I'd go ahead and post about it myself:-)

This little bit of fun is going along with Mrs. Wilt's "A Fortnight of Jane Austen". If you go here, you'll know what the basic plan was for this little "tea".

My daughter Fiona thought I was a bit silly for doing this I think:-) She asked me how I was going to have tea with Jane Austen...was she still alive? That gave me a good chuckle. I explained to her that no, Miss Austen was not still living, but that she wrote many lovely books and I was going to be playing make-believe. I haven't played "tea" for so long...it was kind of fun. So let me share in pictures...

First, here is what I was enjoying for tea...





I didn't exactly make my little refreshments to go with the tea, but they were good. In my cup was a Roobios tea with honey and my reading choice was Persuasion(mainly because I thought it was the prettiest book).


Here I am enjoying tea with Jane...





I have to say that these pictures came out fairly well, considering both Fiona and Brenna did the photography. The top photo was Fiona's work, the bottom was Brenna's. I do think they were certain I was a bit silly:-) I don't know who else will do or did the tea, but I can't wait to see others!

Blessings,

Sommer

Oh, how sweet you are! It's nice to put faces with names! Tee hee! Now we both "know" each other!
I love Roobois tea- I first had it over in England when my S. African friend introduced it to me... just lovely- and your tea set is precious!
I think it's a lovely thing Mrs. Wilt has been doing- I'll have to take another visit over there. With hubby leaving on Friday for 3 weeks, I haven't been able to visit as much...
Thanks, Sommer...

I have that same edition of Persuasion (also have P&P in that edition), and I LOVE it! It's the best size to slip into your purse and take everywhere, and, like you said, it's pretty.

It seems you have budding photographers on your hands!
