Welcome To The 5th Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday:

 Welcome to the 5th,'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday'!.., (Mr. Linky is now live once again below)..,

T W I N S !!

You may have guessed by now that one of my passions is tea and all things related to tea. I have another passion ... babies. I have embarked on a new career path in the last several months.  I am being certified to be a doula or birth coach.  Being present at the birth, encouraging mom to breastfeeding and newborn care seems to be so natural.  Nothing is quite as rewarding for me than to be present when a new family is being born, when a new baby is brought into this world. 

Last week I was honoured to be included with a couple who gave birth to twins.  They were 5LB,(wee boy) and 4.2 LB,(wee lassie) and born by C-Section.   I have been doing 12 hour shifts to help this wonderful couple settle in at home with their sweet, beautiful babies. I have never been busier or felt as more energized.

This is my explanation for a very short post this week.  My fingers and brain are no longer connected....  But to honour the twins I have chosen twin tea cups.

Thank you for dropping in to see me. Today will be quite informal but still a lovely time for a visit.  You are always welcome.  I will always have time to put the kettle on and sit a spell with you.  I would love to hear what is new in your world, whether it be tea, china, recipes, family or babies.

Wanda and I look forward to seeing what delightful posts you have created this week. I love to read your comments. If you have a moment please let me know you have stopped in.

Pink and Blue, of course.

This sweet doll reminds me of my own three babies.
Bought in New Orleans 2o years ago.

I can watch a baby sleep for hours. 
Their peaceful sleep reminds me of the peace and love we find in God's arm.

Matthew 18:2

For an answer Jesus called over a child, whom he stood in the middle of the room, and said, "I'm telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you're not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God's kingdom. What's more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it's the same as receiving me.

I will be visiting the other lovely tea ladies at:

  5. Hi Pam,
    Oh, what beautiful teacups; love their colours and shape! That doll is so sweet! I love to watch a baby sleep too. It's almost like they still have the kiss of God on them when they sleep; they are so perfect and peaceful. I so enjoyed the scripture you chose for this tea! Wonderful post! Thanks for sharing and thanks for joining me for Tea time. Have a lovely day.


  6. Hi, I love your pretty teacups and your sweet baby doll, too cute!

  7. Oh congratulations on your new career. What a blessing you have been to the couple with twins. A lot of work, but I know you are blessed. The baby doll you show is soooooooo precious. I love her beautiful cap and christening gown. Beautiful. Both of the teacups are stunning. What a lovely pattern. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  13. What lovely tea cups! I became gramma to twins on February 12, my newest grandson was born at 5:53 p.m weighing 6-1 and sister did not arrive until c-section at 10:30 p.m. 5-3. They are happy, healthy and so adorable. A true blessing!
