Spectacular Fall, and Tea!

Welcome to another autumn-themed tea for one in my living room! So glad you stopped by.

 The tea tray is on the fireplace hearth.

 Delicious, delicious, delicious: it's Pumpkin Chai from David's Tea.

 A great nosh: lemon poppyseed bread (recipe follows) and seasonal candy. Yum!

Here's my colorful tea tray.

 Twin buckeyes! Did you ever hear that a buckeye brings good luck?

An autumn still life

Autumn is delicious!
