Welcome to the 78th,
Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday!..,
The deepest urge in every human heart is to be in relationship with someone who absolutely delights in us.
~ Larry Crabb, Psychologist
Pleases enjoy this afternoon tea, reprise post..,
I am also happy to be once again joining dear Chari for Sunday Favorites this week. @ http://happytodesign.blogspot.com/
Welcome to my cozy corner. It is a blustery and very cool day. With each gust of wind a few more leaves swirl, curtsy, and bow to the ground. A reminder that the summer has past and the winds of change are blowing. The sky is a brilliant sapphire blue. The sun is shining so brightly, I am determined to focus on the wonder of the c o l o u r s before me. It is a great day for a steaming cup of tea. I think a cup of chai will be perfect as I sit by the fireplace.
I have been feeling the burden of half completed projects and miscellaneous things to-do. I have been carrying this list around in my head for several days. Other things have taken priority but now is the time to write a list and complete each task one by one. I love the feeling when I put a check mark beside an item on my list! I feel such …..satisfaction.
O f course, having my cup of tea really is a priority. A short respite from the chaos of daily events is good for the soul. So today I will share my cup of tea with you and a couple of dear people that I would like to voice my appreciation to, with a note of thanks.
W hile I put the kettle on to boil I will find the appropriate cards and my address book, that I store in a unique place. I have re-purposed a set of luggage that belonged to my dear Aunt. Stacking luggage has created a small table for a favorite lamp and inside the makeup case I store all things necessary to compose a note, write a letter and decorate the envelope. (More creative ideas are in an earlier blog) The easier it is to organize myself the more apt I am to succeed in this task.
A cup of tea, is a fragrant plant(s) steeping in boiling water or it is the beginning of a connection with one who yearns for a relationship with you. Take the time and settle down with your cup of tea and write a note to some one who needs to know you care for them. Or chat on the phone to some one far away. You both will be glad you did.
L et some one know that you delight in them as the heavenly Father delights in you. Tea is a time for sharing. It is good for the soul. Let’s invite someone else to our tea party!
Creative beginnings, early in the morning
I was inspired by the intense blue sky and the burnt orange of the remaining leaves
Choosing the pieces
The ornate designs called for classic simplicity
of my mother's good set of dishes.
Purchased almost 50 years ago
Serving plate ~ Limoges
One teacup from my mother's dearest friend, Gladys
The other I bought as a companion for it
It just seemed to be so lonely.
Fine Bone China from England
I look forward to showing more pieces in the future
I enjoyed looking for pieces to compliment
my mother's china to give as Christmas presents.
I found this in a consignment shop and had to bring it home
Appears to be a fine embroidered fabric encased in glass, (all 4 sides),
I would love to know its history!! Such tales it could tell!
Opens for a candle
Let some one know that you delight in them as the heavenly Father delights in you. Tea is a time for sharing. It is good for the soul. Let’s invite someone else to our tea party!
