Cat Lady No. 86...Tea Time with Tabbies

Illustration Friday
(theme:"poise" )

Like any good hostess, Cat Lady Millicent always remains the perfect picture of poise at tea time, even with the unexpected arrival of the Rapscallion Lads: Rufus, Rupert, and Randolf.

The tabby triplets, while not particularly fond of tea, do enjoy a spot of cream now and again. As for Millicent, her weakness lies in crumpets, especially those drenched in butter and honey.

If you would like to make home-made crumpets for your next tea party, here is a recipe: Home Made Crumpets.

Thanks for visiting!

This original ACEO watercolor illustration of Millicent and her Tabby Trio is currently up for sale in my Etsy shop: Tea Time with Tabbies

"Tea Party No. 1" is also available on gifware and t-shirts at my CafePress Shop:
