Thank God for tea!  What would the world do without tea?  How did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea.

Reverend Sydney Smith

The daintiness and yet elegance of a china teacup focuses
 one to be gentle, to think warmly, and to feel close.

Carol and Malcolm Cohen

I am in no way interested in immortality,
 but only in the taste of tea.

Just love that basket in the first picture. That must be an oldie but a goodie. I also love the door in the garden. That looks so interesting and your garden is always inviting. And who visiting here doesn't love a stack of teacups?
Thanks for the visit, Bernideen, Ruthie from:
