Sharing a Cup of Tea...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  One of my favorite ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day (or any day) is with a cup of tea!  I love this pretty cup...a gift from a sweet friend...

I used my favorite Irish Breakfast Tea with a little honey...

I love it with shortbread...these are ginger-lemon...

I'm a fan of Walker's Scottish shortbread...and recently they came out with three gluten-free varieties...shortbread, ginger-lemon, and chocolate chip.  I am in my happy place!

  1. Good morning Linda. I love a good cup of hot tea too. I have never seen that brand before. I also never met a cookie I didn't like, and I live to have a shortbread cookie with tea too. I like to dunk!
    Happy St Pats!
    XO Kris

  2. I would love to join you for a cup of tea, Linda! Barry's irish breakfast is my favorite too and I love shortbread as well. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  3. Love Walkers shot read, so good! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  4. I've never tried the Irish tea and I should because my mother's grandparents were from County Down, Ireland and my son was born on this day.
    I'll have to look for those cookies, love shortbread!

  5. Hello dear Linda- and Happy St.Patrick`s day , to you.
    Your tea cup is so very lovely, and Shortbread are favorites of mine,too.
    Wonderful finds in your shop!!!
    Hope your day is great!!

  6. I always enjoy whatever you share, Linda. This one just makes me "feel good"!

  7. Walker's shortbread was one of my dad's favorites (he was Scottish) if there wasn't any homemade shortbread around. My mom rarely made it, so one year for Christmas, one of his gifts from me was homemade shortbread with little chocolate chips in it. He loved it. Love your pretty mug!

  8. Love Walker's shortbread! Sounds like you had a good afternoon.


  9. Yum! I'm going to have to pick up some of those gluten-free shortbread cookies! I'm drinking my tea right now. Cheers!

  10. Your mug is so pretty, Linda! I love Walker Shortbread too. My mouth is watering just thinking of it!

  11. That is a very pretty mug to enjoy your tea in along with the yummy treat!

  12. Happy St Patrick's Day to you. That is a beautiful mug. Love it and I love that shortbread, too. xo Diana

  13. Hi Linda, Happy St. Paddy's Day! Love your pretty mug and those cookies do look good! Lots of goodies in the shop, too! xo Karen

  14. Hi Linda, boy, isn't it wonderful how a day like St. Patrick's, along with sunshine, can energize the soul? It makes a cup of tea and a treat even that much better when you reflect back on the day, doesn't it? We had such beautiful weather here in WV yesterday, and today looks just as promising. I love shortbread cookies (TFS Walker's new ones) and I am totally in love with those ivory dominoes. Your finds are ones I would have a hard time rotating into the sell pile, lol.

  15. I love a good cup of tea too! I agree it is nice to ponder the day with tea!

  16. Sounds delicious! We didn't have anymore Irish Breakfast we opted for some Chocolate Mint :) Have a great day!

  17. I love shortbread cookies and a good cup of tea, and drinking tea out of a pretty cup makes it a lot more special. Thanks Linda for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  18. That breakfast tea looks good! I haven't had hot tea in a long time. I love those Walker cookies too.

  19. We've had Barry's tea :) Those biscuits sound and look lovely and such a pretty cup too.

    I'll be trying out some gluten free baking and cooking when Olivia comes home for Easter.... have you seen this website? (this is all new too me!)
