The Pleasure of Tea for The Farm Girls

The Pleasure of Tea was our theme for this gathering of our Farm Girls, Erin was the host, meal was tomato basil soup, blueberry scones, turkey wraps, blue cheese vinaigrette dressing on a bed of lettuce and yummy deserts completed this tea. Just getting together was enough for these girls, we always have so much to share, that we just can't quick talking. Do you have a group or friend like that?
Erin, Katy and Robin having some tea and sharing our stories and just catching up, as you might remember Erin was away out of town for our last gathering, it was so nice to have her back.
Robin sharing this cast iron flat pan that belonged to her Grandma, what a treasure. We all love our cast iron. How about you?
Katy shared this recipe with us from the current Martha Steward magazine, she took it one step further and graced us with some to take home. Yummy!!!! Thanks Katy!
Here I am sharing my excitement of my photo publication featuring my blog, what a blessing it has been. I thank all who were responsible for this to happen.
Farm girl project this gathering was put together by Robin and I, I am the gather for sure, and love to share my ideas. One thing for sure about these girls they are all so creative in their talents and so giving to share.
The table was set with all the supplies needed to do this crafting project.
Robin, Katy and Erin choosing their designs to create their bottle cap magnets with.
I love this photo of Erin and I, when we get together to create we are certainly in our element. Ahhh!
I think that Katy was smitten over this peppermint pattie that I made homemade from Giada's recipe. It is so fun to share these with my friends.
An impromptu craft project, Erin showed us how to make these cute little bird nest as seen in Country Living. Thanks Erin for sharing.

We are so all looking forward to a real spring. How about you?


  1. What a wonderful group of friends! Talking, food and creating, a perfect combination!

  2. I love my cast iron frying pan too...once you get used to how to clean it...that is! I love the heat and the way it cooks, I swear nothing beats it!

    what a sweet tea time you've had here...i'm so happy to have stumbled upon your blog....and I'm now your newest follower! COME ON BY FOR LUNCH SOMETIME!

    ciao bella


  3. I have my Grandma's cast iron, it's always on top of the stove because we use it just about every day! Looks like a lovely time with your sweet friends ;-)..Lisa

  4. Hello Florence~ I've got a favor to ask...I would like to invite you over for a visit to see a very special post I've written. I would love it if you could take a few moments to stop by.
    Thank you,

  5. That is just amazing, they look like real birds nests. Everything looks like so much fun. I like that you do crafts like that. I think it would fun to have something like that for my girls too.
    Yes, I love the magazine with you in it. I did go buy it and showed my husband.
    Yes, I love my cast iron too. I use mine every day.
    I don't know what I would do without one. I love making the Pioneer Woman's Rosemary rolls in mine and then when you bring it to the table sizzling with the dinner rolls, it just adds to a party atmosphere and looks so country sitting on the table.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Looks like you all had a great time! My mom still prefers her iron skillet over everything else!
