Afternoon Tea

This image was processed with just a minimal amount of levels adjustment followed by an action for PSE which gave it this warm hazy effect.  A dark teal filter was then applied at 15% opacity along with some slight vignetting.  Next I used a soft round black brush on a layer mask to paint back in some of the bubbles in the vase along with the pattern on the teacup.  So tell me, how do you take your tea?
