FRIENDS SHARING TEA


Welcome to Friends Sharing Tea....if you have a love for tea and blogging - please link at the bottom and join in this CELEBRATION of the the LOVE OF TEA!






One of my New's Year's Resolutions was that I would have more time for blogging - ha!  I can't seem to find more hours in the days...does anyone know where they go?










This morning I set up a little tea vignette for today....





The hydrangeas from my Sister-in-law have been a welcome this winter.  I have seen quite a few blogs which feature the "already happening" signs of spring.  Here in Colorado, I know better as we will have substantial snow before that happens.  We actually MUST  have snow as this is how we get our drinking water here.  Also, the skiing industry depends on the snow!



I have enjoyed reading "Scones & Tea" lately and want to remind you there is a chapter on Glutten Free which is very helpful! My grandmother gave me this vase when she was still living.







Winter is the perfect time to dig into your tea books and try new things. The hot oven only makes the house warmer and it is always fun to try something new for a change.  We dream about our gardens but they are sleeping right now.  Time to be "indoors".




















Please join me below if you have something to share regarding tea.   You can link your blog below:

Dear Bernideen,
I hope you had a nice Valentines Day. Your tea table looks very inviting. As usual you share so many wonderful porcelain things like the pretty tea cup, the tea pot and the wonderful vase. And so many nice doilies, I love them all. I know, time is running so fast. I can feel that by myself. Although it will last its time, spring is coming. Everything gets a bit easier in the sunshine. Until that I need a lot of tea.
Best greetings, Johanna

You are so correct about the drinking water. The farmers out here also depend on the snow for their summer irrigation of the crops that feed us. So many farms have been out of production because of the lack of water. Let it snow, and snow. And I'll shovel. Then enjoy some tea to warm up!♥♫

Hi Bernideen,
Your tea table always looks lovely and I really like your collage. Now that Valentines day is behind us, I'm beginning to think about Spring, although like you, we here in Eastern Canada will have lots of snow yet. One can dream however. Hope you had a lovely Valentines Day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hello Bernideen
Your tea vignette is lovely and I really like the collage at the bottom of your post.
I wish I had brought some of my tea books with me on holiday to read and mark recipes to try. That is what I want to do though, try something new each week when we get home.

You know I share your hopes for more blogging. Thanks for your encouraging words on my blog. We'll hope for the best.

Bernideen, this is such a lovely post.

We are having such a mild winter, but i'm hopeful that March will give us some deep snow. I've heard that when we don't get much moisture during the winter, the summer will be extra hot and dry.

May you have a wonderful week-end,

I think it would be a great joy to share tea with you, Bernideen!! I'm going to start pulling out my tea books soon as I would like to do a "Downton Abbey" tea with my lady friends who are enjoying the PBS series.

I'm off to check on some more bloggers who "do" tea.

Best,
Bonnie
