With the days getting hotter and more humid, I tend to shy away from making tea time. I usually reinvent it with ice tea and keep it at that! But then I start missing the pure joy I get from pulling out my China and inviting a friend over for conversation and cup of tea. I… Continue reading Summer Tea
Some times the winter months can feel blah and I am dreaming of spring weather and all flowers blooming. The best way to pull myself out of a winter dreary mood is to get my tea cups and china out. I decided to invite a friend over and make her brunch and and some warm… Continue reading Wintertime Brunch
It’s been awhile since I have posted anything on Tea. I love having Tea Parties and I wish I could host them more often. This time of year its a must though, because I have so many tea items that I can not use any other time of year. The fall colored tea pots, plates… Continue reading Fall Tea
I love being with people and I love getting to know others. I enjoy being part of a group that seeks to serve its community and always finding ways to be a blessing. I’m apart of a church that inspires me to serve others all around me and I also have the pleasure of hosting… Continue reading Serving, giving, being a blessing
Madeleine tea cakes are one of my favorite things to make to go with coffee or tea. I have started to see them pop up in Starbucks as well, and thought I needed to start making them again for something fun! It looks like a cookie that is shell shaped, but really the batter is… Continue reading Madeleines
Spring is my favorite season, there are so many things I love about it. It screams new life and all things new all around us. I love the blossoms on the trees, tulips popping up and showing themselves and hearing the sweet chirping of birds and their new babies. It inspires me to go outside… Continue reading Everything Spring
I love mail, but who doesn’t? I love boxes, padded envelopes and anything that comes my way in the mail that has my name on it (unless, of course, it’s a bill.) When the mail is unexpected…oh boy, I get all giddy inside, wondering to myself, “Who loves me? Who’s thinking of me?” On the… Continue reading Love coming your way
I recently had the greatest pleasure of putting on a tea party for one of my customers. She wanted to host a tea party for her clients to say “thank you” for all of their support for her and her business over the years. I think I forgot to mention that she is a… Continue reading Beautiful Tea
I’m always trying to find inventive ways to make a memory or two with my family. Some of my ideas are successes, some…well, not so much! Over the last year or so I have seen things on Facebook and have heard people mentioning how they went to a paint studio and painted with their husband or group of friends. It sounded so fun… Continue reading Relax. It’s just paint!
I am not sure when, but years ago, I fell in love with tea time. I am surprised I don’t remember that moment, but the love for tea was gradual (as I tasted several types) but the love of the “experience” was instant! There is just something about using pretty plates and sipping out… Continue reading Tea Please!
