Alexandra's Aunt's 1950's Shelley 'Regal' trio with Triple Choc Cookies!
So I was searching for a nut-free, 'Jam Drops' recipe the other day, when I came across this exquisite blog.... 'The Art Of Afternoon Tea' by Alexandra Nea.
Waterford crystal, Wedgewood and Pink Butter Biscuits.
Don't you just love it when you find talent so amazing it stops you in your tracks.
I have since devoured her whole blog.

Today, you might like to take a little break, sip some tea and enjoy the beautiful drawings of Alexandra's afternoon teas. You might find a recipe or two that just needs baking ...sort of.. like.. immediately.
Thank you Alexandra, for the use of your beautiful drawings for this post. They make my blog look so pretty.
PS. Now I REALLY miss my pretty teacups. They're in a box in the back of the shed.
