Tea Time!


Yesterday, my daughter and I went on a little treasure hunt and I found this gorgeous little English tea cup for pennies. What a find since that's exactly what I was looking for! I am still on the lookout for more teacups and saucers as I have an idea for them...

Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage.

I have a very small collection of gorgeous little cups. These Turkish Espresso cups were handed down from my Mother in law. Aren't they cute?


 If you are cold, tea will warm you.  If you are too heated, it will cool you.  If you are depressed, it will cheer you.  If you are excited, it will calm you.  
~Gladstone, 1865


“May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all your heart might desire.”
~ Irish Blessing


These were made by our friend, Margit who lives in Amsterdam. So adorable.


"Yes, that's it! Said the Hatter with a sigh, it's always tea time."
