Cherry Scone aroma has drifted through my house and met my nose this last week and not only pleased me, but gave me such  a great excuse to have tea with my sister!

After I made these scones and they were in the oven baking, I pulled out my nice linen table cloth my mom gave me, (thanks Mom) opened my china cabinet door and chose my special delicate tea cups that were a gift from a life long friend Roxy, (thanks Roxy)! My sister Elizabeth and I were able to have a blissful sit-down time together.

These scones were not only delicious, but also captured a wonderful memory 😉

My sister Elizabeth made some amazing pomegranate scones which has inspired me so much to start a series with her all about scones.

    These are just so beautiful. My stomach is growling and I am longing to come over there and have tea and scones with you girls. Your pictures are just gorgeous. Love how you did the flowers too, that is perfect inspiration. I am sure Roxy is going to love seeing her tea cups. Feeling very homesick for you right now.
    Love Mom

    Hey there! It’s so nice to see you blogging again!

    I have been experimenting with my scone recipes and have come up with a few new ideas. Once I get the photos downloaded, they will be on my blog soon.

    Cherries are my all time favorite and these ones I will have to make soon….

    Love your photos Marie!

    Hugs,
    Amy
