If you've come over from Wild Olive, welcome!! I'm so glad to have you here.
If you haven't seen all the cuteness happening over at Mollie's blog, Wild Olive, I encourage you to pop over and have a look! Her place is brimming with tea-riffic things this week, and if you like tea parties, boy oh boy, are you in for a treat!
- Dried Apricot
- Roasted Almond Slivers
- Mayo (the good stuff! diet won't work here.)
- Celery Salt
- Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
- Loaf of soft white bread
- Loaf of soft wheat bread
Everything should be chopped small (approx 1/4"). Except the almond slivers, just put some of those in a baggie and smash them on the counter. Mix everything together and cover with plastic or in an air tight container until assembly. It's best to make these the night before you need them so that the flavors have time to blend. Right before I make the sandwiches, I add a bit more mayo to moisten up the mix, then I trim the crusts off the bread and assemble the sammies, easy peasy! I like to use a light & dark bread for each sammie, but that's not necessary. Stack them on a pretty platter, sneak one for yourself, and viola! Tea sandwiches!
Oh, yum. Now I want to make these...
Back to Wild Olive!
Here's another little goodie from Mollie's Tea Party Week, an adorable little embroidery pattern that she made to share with all of us.
You can download the PDF file that Mollie made here.
Ok, giveaway time!
To play along I'd love to share some tea with you, my friends. I wish it could be in person, but since you bloggy pals are all over the world, it'll have to be a virtual tea party.
I am going to give away a 2oz. bag of loose, Tealightful Treasures tea, and a few stitchy goodies to one person that I'll choose randomly, the evening of Monday May 30th.

Entering couldn't be easier, just leave me a comment here on this post, and tell me what kind of tea is your favorite, green, black, rooibos, or fruit & herb. This way I can make sure to choose a tea you'll enjoy. I have a wide variety of teas, because I'm a consultant for Tealightful Treasures, betcha didn't know that, aye?
Can't wait to hear from you!
