click on photo to view detail

This past Friday I had so much fun hosting a Valentine tea for all my wonderful blogger friends in the Atlanta area. There was enough delicious food to feed an army of bloggers. New and old bloggers spent the afternoon eating and chatting about their blogging experiences. Your ears were probably ringing since we all agreed that bloggers are the best ever! If you would enjoy an in-depth review of the tea and seeing more photos and the faces of those bloggers who attended please visit Sue at Rue-Mouffetard HERE.

I also want to say thank you to all the bloggers who attended for your help in bringing amazing treats to share and some amazing hostess gifts which were appreciated. You are all the best!

Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary at little red house HERE. Please share in the fun by adding a mosaic of your own or stopping by and viewing this weeks mosaics.

Please visit Between naps on the porch HERE Tablescape Thursday.

Please visit designs by Gollum HERE for Foodie Friday.

Please visit bargain hunting with Laurie HERE for the Valentine Party.

  26. I feel so fortunate to have found your blog. I love Atlanta, it's one of my favorite cities. I was lucky enough to spend three years in Marietta when my husband was in the military. That was in the late 90's. I will confess I still miss the south, there is nothing like it. So happy to see you got together and had a wonderful time, Char

    Hugs!

  32. The tea looked lovely and the details in your mosaic are amazing! I also read the morning routine story she posted and can so relate!

    I'm so glad you enjoyed my post yesterday and I was happy to see I'm not the only one who wouldn't ski down that mountain! The next time I go to those hot springs, it will be in the Fall before it gets that cold.

    I'm sure you don't know this, but I recently announced that I am moving back to Georgia after over 50 years. South Georgina, but I'm hoping some time you'll let an "out-of-towner" come to one of your gatherings. Atlanta is my hometown, does that count? lol

    Happy Valentine's Day

  35. Joyce, this looks like SO much fun! I told Sue and Sandie that I want to come to Atlanta and be an honorary "peach" for one of these fun events. Y'all can just pretend I'm not really an orange. ;-)

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  49. How wonderful that you had a blogger party! Food bloggers really are the best!

    You asked about the macaron template I used for my macs. It is one that is online that you can just print at home and use. The link is on the Mac Tweets site under resources.
