I do have the Earl Grey cookie recipe - it's my favourite cuppa, so I couldn't resist. I haven't made them yet - maybe next baking day? But apple cinnamon teacake sounds divine, I could go some of that!
And I think hats and gloves would be nice, don't you?

Tea parties always make me wish that I could stomach tea. They're just so old-fashioned and lovely.

Also, I wanted to say thank you for adding me to your blogroll. I'm really honored to be on such a short list.
