IT'S TEA TIME

                                                            FOR TEA



The Challenge this week at Inspiration Avenue it "TEAPOTS".  I didn't have an opportunity to make something for this week's challenge, but I do love Teapots and what good is a Teapot without a smashing good cup of Tea. So join me for some tea and some magical teapots won't you?










TEA AND SHOES ~ A MARRIAGE MADE IN HEAVEN















“When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else, are doomed to die, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment?”
Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgeho























THIS ONE IS FOR YOU LOU ANNE ~*













There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.  ~Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady

















“I shouldn't think even millionaires could eat anything nicer than new bread and real butter and honey for tea.”
Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle






                        There is nothing more soothing than a TEA PARTY with Friends





                                      ONE OF MY FAVORITES ~ FRIDA



                                                    Steam rises from a cup of tea
                                                    and we are wrapped in history,
                                                    inhaling ancient times and lands,
                                                    comfort of ages in our hands.



Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed your tea as much as I ~*

    1. Thank you Diane, I can't do much else right now. I am suppose to be calm and resting, but this is relaxing for me to do and of course I love it.

  2. These photos are all so amazing, I could never pick a favorite! I kept saying "this one's my favorite" then I'd scroll down a bit and go "No! THIS one!" and so on. How do you find such fabulous pictures?

  3. Oh my gosh. You know how to put on a tea party, that's for sure. I'm with Maggie. I want to know where you found all those awesome tea pots and cups. They are fantastic.

    And I admit that Bleubeard really loves the cat with a wreath on its head.

  4. "liquid wisdom"...how wonderful! In the next to last photo, I think some of those pots are chocolate pots and not tea pots. Still beautiful!
