Bow and polka dots to give my plain jane teapot some flair
If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.-Ernest Hemingway
You can't escape the past in Paris, and yet what's so wonderful about it is that the past and present intermingle so intangibly that it doesn't seem to burden.-Allen Ginsberg
At last, you say! Time for tea! Let's steal a moment and pretend we are having tea in Paris. I have yet to be so blessed but as I wander through blogland my imagination is tickled with those who post from France or show us the timeless finesse that the French possess.
|I gathered a few items that are French inspired|
Now, what to do with them?
Tea canister to hold the finest tea for my guest.
An antique tea strainer
The strainer pivots when turned to pour tea through it and the shallow bowl under it catches the drips.
A French lady always wears her best shoes.
A touch of Parisian flair for you!
You are invited to join the fun with Wanda Lee and I. Mr Linky is available and is ready in the post below.
I hope I have not confused you too much this week.
I love to have tea with friends, even a quick moment to pause and chat is so refreshing to my soul. I hope you have enjoyed your time with all these sweet ladies from the Tuesday Tea's.
I have been very slow to respond to you these past couple of weeks. Only because long and strange hours that a doula keeps from time to time have prevented me from stopping by your lovely blog. Like a tell my parents-to-be: Babies don't know how to tell time so we must welcome them whenever they come.
But I love to know how you are and I will be visiting "ya'll soon".
Have a blessed week and many thanks for dropping by and your patience.
Hugs and Blessings Wanda Lee and Pam
