Time for a Tea Party! by Nancy Jill Thames

Yes, it's time. We at Cozy Mystery Magazine would like to thank all of you for reading our articles and taking part in our giveaways. This week we'd  like to congratulate Bev as the winner of "Death in Dahlonega," by Deborah Malone. Now let me pour you a cup of Peach Tea and help yourself to some finger sandwiches and nutmeg scones. Umm! they smell wonderful- don't they? Here's  some strawberry jam and Devonshire cream to put on them. I'll be including the recipe in the Cozy Kitchen sometime!
Last week I had  Rosemary Adkins over on "Queen of Afternoon Tea" Celebrity Author Interviews. You're welcome to join us  there! She gave away a copy of her beautiful book to someone who left a comment (along with their e-mail)  and followed the blog.
 (Congratulations to Linneann - winner of Rosemary Adkins' book!


More tea? Let me warm yours up a bit. For dessert we're having a nice dish of Traci's Huckleberry Duff from the Cozy Kitchen. It's yummy! I'll pour a little sweet cream over it to top it off the way they do in England.

  1. Oh, I've eaten too much. I can barely move. LOL Would you pour me some more tea please. I might as well have more if I'm going to sit here.

    We have a real nice tea room in our little town in North Georgia. It use to be in a small building and it was very cozy. You could try on old shaws and hats and take pictures, eat with them on, etc. They moved to another location and it just isn't the same, though it is still nice!
    Thanks for inviting me to tea today Jill.
