We interrupt this program for a little "T"

I'm interrupting my pre-sheduled posts to show you where I was yesterday.
IN MONTRÉAL
Let's go.





Manon invited me to an eFashionista tea party at her restaurant. We were upstairs. 
Of course I dressed up for the occasion.
Part of the proceeds went to 
LA MAISON MARGUERITE
which is a temporary home for struggling women living in poverty.
 I wore this little number for awhile.
 I did bring my sweet baby blue Pill Hat that CC brought me, but
for some reason I didn't get a picture of it.

 Look at my FRECH girlfriend Manon.
Isn't she just beautiful?
This is our sweet hostess Tania.
Isn't she a little doll, and oh so charming.
I came home with a fun filled PINK box of goodies, and the most decadent cookies I've ever seen. Will you join me for a little spot of tea?
The flowers were also fresh and pink and pretty.
 I dared NOT take a bite from this pretty blue cookie. 
Could you?
Yes girls, we did eat Macaroons.
 And look at this one? 
Trimmed in GOLD no less.
 Takes my breath away, really.
 You know I must confess. 
I'm not a tea drinker, but today, well I was.
And I cracked open this sweet chocolate fortune cookie.
 China I've had for a few years now. 
But the sad part...
I was alone while enjoying this peaceful time.
I was thinking of all of you out there who would have gladly joined me today.
 What a great fortune cookie.

 And so my sweet little bear sat with me while I sipped my tea, and told me to 
NOT eat the cookies.

Oh my...what a lovely tea party. I think I prefer (as in the first photo) the "bottle" of whatever that was (tee,hee)
THOSE ARE COOKIES....unbelievable.
I'd never eat them either.

You look gorgeous in your pink hat and indeed Manon is a beautiful lady.

Your life is always full of fun and adventure I believe.
many hugs!!!

Wish I could be there to share tea time with you! I'm quite lonely since hubby went back to work after our ten day camping trip. I hope to have a lunch out with my girlfriends Thursday though.

This looks like such a beautiful event and you, as always, look gorgeous!

Hi Claudie, I just wanted to pop in to say that I think what you did for your friends visit there was the nicest thing any one could do. You are an amazing lady! :D

Eternally Distracted said...

I wanna come, I wanna come!! Looks fabulous darling, as do you! :)

Holly Loves Art said...

Oh thank you for taking us right along with you to join the tea party! How delightful! You looked beautiful and I can tell it was an amazing time!

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and all your helpful comments about Europe. I am so excited and will take lots of pictures so I can do some blog posts!

Big hugs,
Holly

Hello Dear Claudie, The 'High Tea' is just the most delightful idea. You both look beautiful in your oh so beautiful hats. Pink is definitely your color Claudie. I love that dress. It holds great memories. Smile.

The cookies are a work of art. Who could take a bite of those? More goodies for your pleasure. I am glad you had a grand time time at the tea party. I am sure Manon made everything special and a wonderful time was had by all. I have wondered how her mother is doing.

Still busy with company but having fun. Rick and Dee are long time friends and they are like family.However, I will be happy to have time to post again. I am very anxious to post and express my thanks for the lovely gifts we all exchanged. I am missing you and the Summer Breeze good times.

Good night dear Claudie.
I love you to pieces,
Jeanne xxoxo

Honee French Poodle... Cheeky, Playful, and Ever Exploring the fortune cookie said~ Now how accurate is that one? SPOT on! ;) You are sweet friend just that!

So glad you could enjoy that fabulous tea, oh if I could have only been a mouse in the corner with a teency camera to film it; that would have been heavenly.

You look like you had a blast...and don't fret about drinking tea alone at home; it's actually GOOD to do that. It helps to lower the blood pressure and calm the nerves whether you think you have them or not.

Love you sista! the macaroons and cookies are just so artistic and luscious looking!!! Please say hello to Manon for me honee!

Your Summer Breeze Ga Peach!

What a lovely tea party, and such glorious company!!

As Shelby Eatenton Latcherie so aptly put it, "Pink is my Signachurr Color." And it's certainly YOURS---I'll never see hot pink without thinking of your bright smile.
