Here is a tea cup I found last year at an estate sale.
Pretty blue blooms against a pale blue background.

I made some Spring Lemon Cookies for some friends that came over this weekend.
2 Tsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
2 Tsp lemon zest
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tsp baking powder
1/4 Tsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350.
Combine the 2 tsp lemon juice with the milk and let stand for 5 minutes. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Stir in the lemon zest and the milk mixture. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Blend dry ingredients into the creamed mixture.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. I made a lemon icing with lemon juice and icing sugar, and topped each cookie with it once they cooled. Yummmm!
