|Mrs. Fritz won't allow me to post a picture of her, so here is Lady Emma Cuddleston-Smythe.|
Lady Emma Cuddleston-Smythe and Sir Archibald Sinclair served up afternoon tea for Lady Veronica Aston-Martin to celebrate Mother's Day today. Lady Veronica actually took time from a well deserved day off to bake the scones, which you can see on the table in the picture above. I made some miniature sandwiches, crust cut off naturally, while Lady Emma conjured up some tea cakes and macaroons.
Here is a close up view of the table setting:
|The table is set and we are ready to serve to Mrs. Fritz on her Mother's Day.|
The living vacuum cleaning, i.e. Augie the Doggie, lurked 'neath the table in hope that some scrap of scone or sandwich might find its way to the floor. Alas, he was defeated in his notion.
We have been having Sunday Tea over the past few weeks and are having a fun time, dressing up in our best clothes and having the time together to be a family.
I hope that everyone has had a joyous Mother's Day today.
Very posh looking spread, Jim!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jonathan. It's been fun breaking out the china and putting it to good use.Delete
Looks an utterly splendid time.ReplyDelete
A lovely table and (new) tradition. Is Augie a new family member?ReplyDelete
Yes, we rescued Augie from an animal shelter at the end of February. He had just arrived at the shelter, from Tennessee, the day before we visited the place and saw him. He has a sweet disposition, but he has an annoying whine all of the time - we will just have to get used to it.Delete
Augie has generated a lot of medical bills. He had Kennel Cough, then an ear infection, then he injured his paw and the ear infection has returned. Sigh.
A grand idea.ReplyDelete
Yes indeed, it will become a regular tradition going forward.Delete
Very aristocratic indeed. By the way I still owe you for thee hussars. Just provide a paypal request...captbillReplyDelete
Lunch with Vivaldi. It doesn't get much more 18 century than that.ReplyDelete
