Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




Today I am hosting an afternoon tea over at my lovely friend Melissa's blog, Smitten by Britain. Melissa is an American with an insatiable appetite for all things British. Her fascination with Great Britain started with British rock when she was in her early teens and just grew from there. She once called Britain home and although she left Britain years ago, Britain has never left Melissa. Her blog is full of interesting and informative posts and video clips all about Britain..a true Britophile as she likes to style herself. My darlings, please pop over and join us for tea. You can find us here or by clicking on the photo above. Don't be late lovelies, remember tea is served at half past four.
