It's amazing to me that I got invited to attend a wonderful afternoon tea in Senoia, and then, simply because I served as a judge for their hat contest, I went home with a gift for doing so! But that's how eternally kind and generous those folks in Senoia are, so my friend Nancy Roy of the Carriage House in Senoia sent me home with a lovely gift bag of treats following the historical society's Tea On The Porch on Saturday. First, I learned that "lilas de jardin" means "lilac garden" in French after receiving this charming tea towel and notecards.
Next, there was a jar of Raspberry Jalapeno jam, and it is just delicious! As I suspected, it's heavy on the raspberry and light on the jalapeno, which is quite a fine combination. I enjoyed it on toast and may have to try this on scones next.
Finally, I received a most welcome addition to my collection of tea jewelry! I've seen this style of pin before but never actually owned one, and I'm so happy to have a new piece of teatime jewelry, especially one that will remind me of a lovely afternoon of tea on the porch in Senoia.
