TEA TIME TUESDAY

"In nothing is the English genius for domesticity more notably declared than in the institution of afternoon tea."  George Gissing

Quote from:
The Essential Tea Companion...Victoria










Today is Tea Time Tuesday!

"There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea."  Ralph Waldon Emerson, Letter and Social Aims




I am so happy to see young women becoming interested in the pleasure of serving tea, having tea bridal showers and decorating  their homes with teapots and tea related items.....









    Even the recent movie "Alice In Wonderland" has stirred an interest in tea.....

The calendar below has always been a favorite at my store....I love looking at the lovely antique and collectible teapots on it's pages......



I hope you will visit others who celebrate this day at Rose ChintzCottage & Inspirations and see other celebrations of tea!

Before the snow flies, I hope Sarah and I will be able to visit your shoppe again! Today was cooler and very welcome here on the eastern plains. Fall will be here before we know it and hot tea in the morning before school is a must at my house! ♥♫

A lovely tea post, Bernideen! Love the two teapots; lovely colours and shapes! I agree, it's wonderful that ladies are taking an interest in tea again! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week.
