A Success


My tea party last night was just lovely. Chicken salad on mini croissants, cucumber sandwhiches, oranges, strawberries, scones and some wonderful tea in my delicate china cups.





Good conversations, good friends and good food.





Watched the new Pride & Prejudice. I am still loyal to the original BBC Colin Firth version, but this one is also excellent for when you just don't have an extra five hours to dedicate to Colin. How this can happen, I just don't know. I mean, look at those eyes! But anyway.




I will post our fun pictures from the party as soon as I: a. finish that roll of film b. take that roll of film into the store to be developed c. pick up the pack of pictures from the store and d. scan in the pictures I want from our party and hope that we didn't have our eyes closed. How did we function on film for so long!?


**Update: Have attached photos. Lucky for me the store provides the option for a disk of pictures so I wouldn't have to scan them all in. Whew.

ooh, fun! i, too, am excited about a less than 5 hour movie of pride and prejudice...however, i will agree that it isn't much of a sacrifice to watch colin firth for 5 hours. :)

See, that's the thing...I have one. Someone (no names here, of course) has been leaving at his work and keeps forgetting to bring it home.

What a splendid idea, to have a tea party. I think I would like to have one outside, when it is warm of course. I would have the ladies wear big hats and gloves, and they could bring their favorite tea cup from home to use. Watching Pride and Prejudice would go well with teacakes don't you think? I saw P&P last weekend, Fred even watched it with me and was as enraptured as me, well he watched the whole thing, so he must have like it.

Shock and Awe! The Lurker has Un-lurked!! ;)

I like the idea of bringing your own cup! And I can hardly believe your hubby liked the movie! Good for you!

Oh this is so my kind of party!

And Colin Firth? Mmmmmmm..... make it a two day party, I'd be watching that movie any time I could!

Very cool! I haven't seen the movie but it's on my to do list.

I can't wait to see the pictures of your tea party, it sounds like a lot of fun. Excuse me while I live vicariously through you for a while... :-)
