Tuesday Tea

I was setting up my tea, and trying to decide which one to have, when it dawned on me. Today is my daughter's birthday, and she loves tea- so I set it up for her. She was surprised as she staggered upstairs, bright and early, to grab a quick bite before heading out to work.
Katie was an avid fox hunter before we moved here, and her trusty steed got too old. I have been collecting hunt items for quite a while. So, what better breakfast for her than a hunt theme!
With all the teas I have in the house, her favorite is plain old Red Rose tea, straight up!!! Add oatmeal, and some dwarf lilacs, and she was good to go.
Happy birthday, Katie G!!!
