A Thrifted Tea…

My favorite way to drink iced tea is with cranberry juice added.

Cranberry Iced Tea

1 part unsweetened cranberry juice

sweeten to your taste

I simply add to my glass of freshly brewed tea about one-third of unsweetened real cranberry juice….that is two-thirds tea and one –third cranberry juice.

No glass of iced tea shall go without “LEMON” and a package of the pink stuff…

Pretty iced tea spoons and napkins make it special…I wrapped ivy from my porch and a couple of blooms from the yard around the napkins and spoons…

The summer flowers are a little past their prime now…but still pretty…

My flowers are in a Swan bowl that belonged to my Mom…It is a Hall and I remember her redeeming her stamps from the grocery store to get it…

A few fresh peaches dressed with more Black-eyed Susan’s and ivy make a summertime snack look so fresh…

A bowl of fresh cool cherries are my favorite snack…the little beads of moisture and the fresh ivy make them look so pretty in the little milkglass bowl…
