Tea today is especially for my lovely fellow Tea on Tuesday participants in the Northern hemisphere who are living in a white and grey world at the moment. ( white and grey can definitely be beautiful too, but I hope my little splash of "brightness" will warm you up ) I know you spell colour with out the 'u' so just ignore the spelling. I'm having Green Tea with Mint out of beautiful Moroccan glasses I bought from my fave shop in Melbourne T2. ( have just got back from visiting my daughter) The colours are so deep and rich.Hope you are enjoying your tea where ever you are, and if you would like to join us for Tea on Tuesday visit Kimmie here.
The plates I am using for my tea today are designed by an artist from Western Australia called Anna Chandler. She does lamp shades, wall tiles and china. Her designs are Asian or Middle Eastern inspired, often with birds and flowers but always rich in colour.The plates came as a boxed set of 4, each with a different pattern.
Along with my Green Mint Tea, I am having a slice of Almond,Plum and Apricot cake. I have made this cake several times this summer as we have had an abundance of stone fruit. It's easy to make, is full of ground almonds, chopped walnuts and you can really use any fruit on the top. The fruit sort of sinks into the cake and its very moist and gooey in the middle.
Now I don,t really consider myself to be a " name dropping high end fashion consumer", but I do love colour and my friend Alison who works in fashion retail and is the best on-line bargain hunter found this wallet for me... oh ,I would have been happy with just the box !
