Sunday Sketches (English Summer Tea Party)

Just a quick little note tonight as it's already late and I'm exhausted...well, we both are. Today we hosted our 2nd annual summer English Tea Party and it was absolutely wonderful! Michael made his famous lemon shortbread and was in charge of all the traditional English sandwiches. For me, I made my popular traditional English raisin scones and a savory leek and tomato quiche'. Also available for our guests were mini salmon cakes with feta cheese and spinach tucked inside and a fabulous homemade Victoria Sponge cake by our favorite local bakeshop, The Little Bird Bakeshop.

Above is a doodle I tossed together prior to our party preparations. It's a bit rough but I so love how she turned out for being thrown together at the last minute. Hee

Michael and I will share more photos in the coming week of our party but until then, we are off to bed for some much needed rest! I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone. Happy SS!

  1. Right time for outdoor teaparty :) But in Sweden the flag would be blue with a yellow cross :)

  3. You call it 'rough', I call it sweet! I'm loving the little (bumble) bee :) On a side note, your garden looks like a wonderful oasis to rest and recharge in. Happy SS.

  4. Your sketch is fantastic! The flags are just the perfect amount of color...or "colour" I suppose it should be, to keep with the theme.
