What have I been waiting for?

My friend, Lisa, decided to take her treasured dishes out of her china cabinet and enjoy them.  I thought she had a great idea, why not enjoy them!  That was probably two years ago... finally, today I decided that I should start enjoying my collection too.  So I baked some raspberry scones, which turned out so yummy, placed them on a  pink depression glass platter, and poured my coffee into a fun, pink, glass cup, as well.  Kind of makes you feel like a princess at a tea party.  Having three daughters, we had lots of tea parties over the years.  I think it's time we started having them again!

I would love to have a tea party with all of you! Wouldn't that be fun!!!

I'll have to post the scone recipe that I've been using. It turns out great every single time! I can't wait for the fresh fruit at our local farmer's market!!! Might have to try a few savory scones, too! Mmmmm, I wonder what tomato, basil and cheese scones would be like?
