The Passion of Tea

If you're like me -
You love your tea
So pour yourself
A cup that's free....




What is it about tea that makes my heart sing?
The sound of the kettle - like music that rings?
The clink of the china so clear as a bell
The warm soothing taste of the tea I love well!





Late note:  I sold all the Magnolia pieces at my shop!




The house is full of tea things - when antiquing ventures roamed
The walls are full of china plates - happy and at home.




The teapot in her majesty - is quite the lovely crown
With cups and saucers all about and roses gathered round....



Collecting them is oh  such fun - regardless of the fashion
Another day is here to say - THIS IS MY FAVORITE PASSION!

 Bernideen

These magnolia dishes are Homer Laughlin.

Hi Bernideen - Delightful to share tea this day - a renewing treat. I am agog over the red rimmed wild rose pattern you are showing off today. Amid all your lovelies, this truly stands out to me - the depth of the hue draws me in - so warm! Enjoying your musical selection -
Joy!
